Show us what you bought!

I'm linking up with BlogHoppin' to show you what I bought!

I love this kind of linky because I really enjoy seeing what everyone has bought for their classrooms - it always gives me more ideas for my students!

Here's what I bought:

I bought this because I am thinking that this will help me prepare my students better for our new Florida Standards Assessment that is coming in the Spring.  I am thinking that I can use these for bell-ringers or homework.

Since I am teaching 3 classes of "regular" Language Arts, you can imagine that there are time when I am up to my eye balls in essays!  I definitely needed this!

This was a kind of impulse buy - I like the idea of essays being "graded" by peers in a competition sort of way.  I am thinking there might be many uses for this idea - community building and some healthy peer pressure too!

So, what did you buy?  I hope you'll link up because I will definitely be reading all those posts to discover new and exciting things to put on my wishlist for the next sale!  :)

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. These look great - especially buying 100 of anything!
    I can't imagine the grading you have to do...
    I didn't realize you live in Florida! I visit 3-4 times a year and stay in Redington Beach (near St. Pete's). Is that anywhere close to you? Beautiful area!

  2. I am going to start using the 7th grade passages next week :)
    That 5-minute essay grading system looks very intriguing...I know how you feel about the three-class essay overload! Once you try it, I'd love to hear what you think of the 5-minute product!

  3. Hi Lisa! I love your purchases! I don't usually wait for sales to buy what I need in my class, unless the items are very expensive. What DO I buy during sales? Fonts and more fonts- to feed my addiction!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope to hear from you and will reply via e-mail. :)
