Weekly 10 Teacher Finds internet is fixed, so I can now post my 10 teacher finds! Become a follower of my blog so that you have a better chance to get a shout out in the weekly 10. Reason being, I become aware of your blogs and stores and browse them. Therefore, spread the word, and follow so you will never miss a weekly find, a freebie post, or a common core post! I also now have nearly 50 items in my TPT store, including over 10 FREEBIES, and various items for various grade levels. Since I am updating so often, you will definitely want to follow my store so you never miss a new product, clip art, decoration, lesson, poster, or freebie.
You can follow here: My TPT Store .

TIP: Many of your profiles do not have your blog links; and therefore it is hard to find your blogs for products :(

Update: As I mentioned yesterday, I became a first-time aunt a few days ago. Our entire family is so excited! Although not teacher related, who doesn't love a couple of cute baby pics? Without further ado, here is my perfect nephew, Trent Cole. I love him so much already!
Okay, back to the reason you are all here; my weekly 10 teacher finds from blogs and TPT! In no particular order they are:
1. ) Writing Center Starter Kit from A Cupcake for the Teacher: Okay, I love cupcakes, but I really love this writing starter kit with labels and posters to post on a trifold board for a perfect writing center. Pair it with my writing prompt sticks and you got yourself one amazing writing center!

2.) Common Core ELA questioning jar from Little Minds at Work- Daily common core aligned questions with cute graphics. Love it!
Common Core Questioning jar ELA-Kindergarten

3.) Types of Sentences Game by Classroom Confections- A fellow Georgia teacher and blogger with great products is selling this game for helping students understand the different types of sentences. She also has many other games to help your students learn!

4.) It all Started with a Pig (Charlottes Web) unit activities by The Inspired Apple (Babbling Abby) - This has lots of unit activities based on my favorite book as a kid (Charlottes Web) ! This set includes journal prompts, craftivities, and more!

5.) Division Board Games  from Fun Games for Learning  - Love anything that makes division fun! There are 12 printable division games total in this set, and they would make great math center activities. They are well-priced too!

6.) Common Core Writing Prompt Cards from Taking a Walk on the Teaching Side (me!)- Okay, so maybe it is self-promotion, but I love my new set of affordably priced writing prompt cards. These are geared for 3-5 grade writers (but would likely work for 2-6). I print out these cute prompts, glue on popsicle sticks, and make writing prompt sticks perfect for workshops, centers, and more! I have 3 sets. Each set has 10 narrative prompts, 10 informational, 10 opinion, and 10 creative free write. Buy the bundle to get all 120 prompts and save money!

7.) Free Reading Responses Set by Rachelle Smith (What the Teacher Wants) - A freebie of lots of reading comprehension sheets to help your students with various types of literature. Love this freebie :)

8.)Scavenger Hunt Task Cards by Rachel Lynette- 15 fun scavenger hunts for libraries, dictionaries, classmates, internet, and more. I find these great for a center idea or free time!  This seller has lots of other task cards also.

9.) Superhero Word Collectors: Word Activities by Jen Bengal  - lots of word activities for centers or independent work in a cute superhero theme!

10.) Cupcake Multiplication Cards (additional available too) by Teaching My 3 - I just found this seller's blog and store and love the products, but this adorable cupcake multiplication freebie is great for helping students practice multiplying.
