Staple Centers Part 2

In my previous post, I talked about "Staple" Literacy Centers. These are centers that I can pull out throughout the year and use. I also use these centers in my "I'm Finished Bin". When a student is finished with their work, they can get a station to work at their seat quietly. I really love this idea, especially for math. I always a have a few that I have to really keep challenging them!

One of my FAVORITE "Staple" packets is from Anna Brantley's Fun-in-the-Sun-Math-and-Literacy-Center-Packet. I love this packet because it includes both Short and Long Vowels, Time AND Money, and the sentence scrambles are amazing! I love packets that include a variety of popular skills, because I can use them for so many things! She has TONS of great products, but this my favorite!

Another great one from the none other than Cara Carroll is her Ready-Set-Learn-Back-To-School-Math-Literacy-Activities packet! This one is great because it focuses on skills that are often assumed.  Sometimes teachers "skip" basic steps, and before you know it, students get to third grade and can't spell the word "twelve"! This packet is great for basic skills that sometimes we assume kids know, when in actuality they do not :) Go check it :)

Another great "staple" packet is my Parts-of-Speech-Mini-Packet. This packet includes 4 literacy centers, 6 printables, and 6 mini anchor charts!

 is great for those moments when you just have a few minutes here or there. "Sponge" Moments is what my principal calls them! I love these cards for that purpose. They are great on rings, and can be pulled out at any time!!

Be sure to head over and check em' out right HERE

Stay tuned this week, I am linking up with some of my  favorite bloggy friends for a great surprise! 

Till Next Time :)

The Best of TpT

I am telling you what, I do not know what I EVER did before TpT! Not only do I make BETTER things for my classroom, I can find just about anything I need for either free or pretty cheap. I would so much rather buy a literacy center on TpT, then buy a make and take book for $25.00, get one or two years out of it, then  the games are destroyed. With the digital storage, if a piece gets lost or a game gets torn up...guess what?? You just print it again!

My big project now since I just moved, is that I am going through all of my literacy centers. Any of them that are missing pieces, or old, or just ineffective, I am trashing. I need to make sure all of my stuff is complete and the BEST.

So that's why I am going this post, because I am trying to find THE BEST products in TpT. I have added somethings to my cart, and wanted to share with you a few of the best sellers from my Top Teacher friends :)

I've categorized everything so that it makes it easier to find :)


My first product is from Reagan Tunstall...I LOVE this packet! 





Reading Comprehension



Making Words


CVC Words





Sight Words
