Markdown Monday Linky Party! (August 3rd - 7th) & a TpT 2 Day Sale!

Please add your link below to join the linky fun!
Link a product from your TpT store that you would like to markdown until Friday, August 7th.
How much you markdown your product is up to you! We would love it if you displayed your product on your blog and then linked back to us. Thanks so much and have fun!
If you aren't selling, but looking for great bargains, please check out the fabulous discounted products in the linky party below! Be sure to check back again, as teachers may be adding products throughout the week. We don't want you to miss any of these great deals!

This week we are featuring two products again!
Here is the first deal:
It is 50% off!
Click on the picture above to check it out in our store.

Included are picture cards for each letter of the alphabet, it ends up equaling over 400 words! We have also included cards for four digraphs as well. Each card has a colorful illustration and written word to match. These cards can be used to help your students to work on so many skills. We use them during our letter of the week activities and they help to develop drawing, writing, vocabulary, understanding of beginning sounds, decoding, etc. We have included a variety of words and pictures in this huge pack! Among them are sports, numbers, household items, colors, vehicles, and more.
A few examples are pictured below:

It is super easy to use them with "letter of the week" programs and in classroom centers when storing them alphabetically. We have found multiple containers that fit the cards easily, plus the Oxford alphabet dividers come in handy too!


The second bargain is: 
It is 50% off!
Click on the picture above to check it out in our store.

This product is a collection of reproducible book for each letter of the alphabet. Each book is in the shape of something that begins with that letter. For example: the Dd book is in shape of a dog, the Ee book is in shape of an egg, etc. 

Each book has three blank pages for children to record a word and draw a picture.

We use these two products together in our writing center throughout the school year. The children pick a card and write the word and draw the corresponding picture. We like for the children to use the drawing and writing as a model. We use this to encourage correct letter formation and to help with their drawings as well by copying from a model on each card. As the year progresses, we see improvements in both areas!

The children absolutely love using the picture cards to create their books and also to use in their free writing journals. After the books are complete, the children take the books home and use them as picture dictionaries in their writing and homework at home. We encourage them to save them in an old shoe box or anything else they might have around the house for easy access. We get pictures from parents of children that were in our class years ago and they still have their alphabet books!
We hope you enjoy these picture cards and books as much as we do, we use them every year! 

Also, don't forget that Teachers Pay Teachers is having a two day back to school sale! Everything in our store is discounted by 20% and then TpT will take an additional 8% off. That is a savings of 28% on everything in our store!!

Be sure to use code BTS15 at checkout!

Christmas in July!

We are linking up with our wonderful friends Karen and Kelly from Kennedy's Korner to bring you a fabulous freebie you can use in your classroom! Make sure you grab it fast though, it is only free until July 27th! Don't forget to visit Kennedy's Korner to check out the rest of the awesome surprises!

Our Wonderful Weather Bulletin Board Set will be a great addition to your morning meeting or calendar routine. There are so many skills wrapped into checking the weather daily.

We have a weather helper that reports the weather to the class every day. We encourage compete sentences. For example: "The weather today is sunny." They will then complete the following sentence by using the sentence chart and weather words.


The child will then add a tally mark to the tally chart to keep track of our daily weather.

The weather helper then will color in the corresponding bar on the bar graph to display the data. 
We have included a horizontal and vertical daily weather graph allowing you to chose the style that meets your needs. Included is a standard page sized graph as well as poster sized. We have also added an additional graph that has partly cloudy as one of its choices.

We hope you enjoy our freebie! You can click the cover page up above or click here to grab this product from our store. Thanks for visiting!!

Our favorite old lady is at it again and this time she is swallowing school supplies! This is a great book to read on your first week back at school with your students. They will have a great time making their own old lady and then feeding her the different objects to retell the story. We have included a colored version of the old lady and story pieces for teacher modeling, as well as a black and white version for students to create their own.

We have also included three journal responses to go along with the book. Children can respond to the story by answering the following questions: What was your favorite part of the story and why? What might the old lady swallow next and why? Why do you think the old lady swallowed some books?

Included in this pack are also two math activities. The first is matching a numeral to a set. Children will count the number of objects that are pictured and match them to the correct numeral. We used clip art to represent the story pieces to tie reading and math together.

In the second math activity, children will practice counting a set of objects and then writing the matching numeral. Writing numerals can be difficult for our young children, especially those that are starting school for the first time!

We hope your children enjoy coming back to school and feeding this little lady too! She is sure to be a hit in your classroom! Have a great week!
