Teachers Inspire Teachers Linky

So I just posted my Peek at my Week and how appropriate to then check BlogLovin and find this amazing teacher blogger who has started her first linky party. 

 It is appropriate because my biggest inspiration for beginning this blogging/selling/TpT journey was Mrs. Deedee Wills herself.  I have followed her along with a few other collegues ritually for the past several years.  Since I have bounced between grade levels for so long, I have been disappointed to not be able to use all of her ideas!  But here I am hopefully in kindergarten to stay and am L-O-V-I-N-G her ideas and products!  You can check out her TpT store {HERE}.

Deedee has some amazing ideas to use in the classroom but has also created some fantastic products that I have purchased and gotten for free.  

Daily Math Journals The Complete Set
I have this whole set of math journals.  This is what my kiddos do for their morning work.  Usually, it is enough to keep them busy but not too much to where they don't finish.  They are excited each morning to see what they have to do.  It's on sale until midnight tonight too.  Click the picture to check it out!

Writing Through the Year Unit 1 {Aligned with Common Core}
I also have this unit and Unit 2 that Deedee Wills has co-authored with Deanna Jump (that's a different post too!)  But I love using this unit with my kids right now.  The lesson plan is practically scripted so there isn't much planning for me.  I only have to look at what materials are needed and be prepared that way.  

She was also very open to giving me advice when I first had this thought of blogging last April.  I have been creating and selling products on TpT for almost a year but didn't start my blog until the following spring.  So to have her input - and her to be so willing to respond to a strangers email - is very rewarding!

I encourage you to not only follow her blog and stores but be sure to check back often for her amazing ideas!!!

A huge thanks to Heather at The Busy Busy Hive for stepping out of her comfort zone and hosting this Linky Party.  I can't wait to see what other teacher bloggers have to share!!!! So hop on over and let's hear it!
