Going Back with Fabulous Recommendations!

I know some of you have already gone back to work after your Holiday break so you don't have any pity on us who are going back on Monday. However, l bet you got everything done you had planned and I didn't.  In fact, I didn't get anything done except a lot of napping, a lot of spending time with my hubby and kids, and a lot of eating.... And you know what? I'm O.K. with that.  The time spent with my family was priceless.

It looks like tonight I will be grading while I watch TV.  Luckily for me I got some super fabulous resources to use from some of my favorite TPT sellers (Teachers Pay Teachers).  So for tonight's blog post I thought I would share with you a few awesome resources I will be using when I return to school....

Oh, before I share the resources with you let me share with you another site where I am finding super clipart!  Click on the pic below and check out all the incredible art and even some crafts!

OK, now on to some recommendations...
 I own and highly recommend the following products from some Frogilicious educators!  Just click on the title or the small pic to see these resources and previews.

The first two products are from  the FA-BU Farley from Oh Boy 4th Grade!

One of my favorite authors is Patricia Polacco. I will be using her book and this packet on Monday.  Thunder Cake Book Study and Writing Activities.

For Math I am using Farley's Winter Math Pack for Older Kids...... The kids will love it!

This next AWESOME product is from the Superb Stephanie at Teaching in Room 6.  I plan to start this Paragraph of the Week ASAP!

and since we are currently on our fractions and decimal unit I am using Angela Watson's  (yeah that's right. THE Angela Watson from The Cornerstone for Teachers) 4th Grade Fraction and Decimal games for partners . I love when my students have fun while they are

Like I said, these are just a few awesome resources I am using ASAP.  I plan on "showcasing" more of the products I have and use.  In fact I just won an incredible resource from Tabitha at FlapJack Educational Resources that I will tell you all about after I try it with my class.

Have a HOPPY day!


  1. Thanks for sharing these, Lorraine! :)

  2. I used to teach third and going through the resources made me miss it just a bit! :) Good luck on Monday! I go back to my firsties on Monday too! :) It's so nice to be able to supplement what I make with really great stuff from fellow bloggers on TPT! Thanks for sharing these ideas! ;)

  3. Thank you for sharing these resources! I think it's awesome that you are giving shout outs for TpT products, plus, it lets us upper grades teachers see what all is out there!! It looks like you are ready to go back (even though you probably don't feel like it!)

    We went back Wednesday. I'm semi-ready I suppose for next week... :O)

  4. Yay, Lorraine! How sweet of you to support your BloggySisters and share some great resources with all of us.

    I need to go stand on the corner and find you 10 more followers... WooHoo! You are almost there!

    And I have no idea why those froggies in the bus made my laugh... more than once! (But thanks for that!)

  6. Thank you so much for the shout out Lorraine! I hope that your kids get a lot out of the POW :)

    I am with you in that I didn't get very much done in the way of planning this break. I had great intentions but.....So, here I am, planning on my last day! (and getting my hair did ;) )
