the deal with growing bundles (giveaway!)

Growing Bundles.
So this may be the new trend on TpT right now
when they first started popping up, it was a little iffy to me
most of the early growing bundles had a new upload each month, but you lost on the previous month
then they took off with a few sellers who began to bundle their already best selling resources like Lyndsey's Nonfiction packs, First Grade Blue Skies' Directed Drawings, and From the Pond's Write Cut Paste the Room packs.
Then came the growing clipart bundles...
now these got me!
I have to have every.single. one of Mel's scrappy monthly bundles, and then there's border bundles, too!

I had been considering ways to share my little on the spot worksheets that I make for my classroom and I knew this was it!
I started scouring my school computer and home computer looking for these lonely little files and wa-la! The Teacher's Toolbox was born!

Now, this is no mega huge monthly bundle.
There's no way I could hold myself to a full product each month.
Not with 3 kids, 2 baseball schedules, a new Etsy shop, blogging class, graphic design class, TpT, and oh yea...being a full time teacher!
Instead, this product is all the random goodness on my hard drive!
Here's a preview of everything so far.
It's about 3 "things" per upload.

There's math, reading, writing, a print or two that haven't made it to the Etsy Shop yet, organization, newsletters, etc. Really, all that stuff that's good stuff, but not worth the work to list for $1!



It's also good for me because I get into that dreaded "in progress" file and see things I have been working on for months, or in some cases...YEARS! I can pull from those if I do not think I really have a need for it any longer. It also brings into my brain what I already have! Sometimes, it's way too much!
I also have a graphing growing bundle because there was not a single product I found that addressed 2nd grade common core goals in this area. I made a winter themed one for my sub to use when I was out for a few days back in December being professionally developed, and I figured why not do one for each season!


I will admit, the pressure is real. I mean, I do not know how some of these girls do it! I get all worried when the next upload is due and I never want to slap something together just to meet a deadline. Trust me, there are many, many many deadlines I do not meet at my day job! eek
So the graphing bundle for summer is delayed a bit because we're working on reviewing shapes so we can move on to fractions. And I just got the May 15 toolbox posted on May 17...
but it's all good! you like randomness?!
If so, enter to win the graphing growing bundle OR the Teacher's Toolbox growing bundle, OR BOTH!

A Modern Teacher Planner Giveaway!

I am 100% sure you know April from A Modern Teacher makes fabulous planners, but did you know she now makes PERSONAL planners too! When April sent me the info on her new printed planners, I knew it was something I needed! So, perhaps you will agree with me!

I've bought my fair share of digital planners (four to be exact) and I can tell you that they are all still right on my laptop.
I don't have a personal printing press. I have a great laser printer for prints and school stuff, but in a planner I need a tough cover and great binding. I'm not a dainty gal. I lug stuff in a back and forth in a big ole' bag from home to school to the ballfield and back again every single day.
I need a cover that can withstand me! And this one's super sturdy!
Plus April's personal planners merge TEACHER LIFE and FAMILY LIFE! Yes!
I'm sure y'all are way more organized than I am; but if you keep notes in a lesson planner, a data notebook, on stickies, on the back of your kids' work, or the back of your hand, then maybe this is our answer!

And if you are not a fan of everything bright like the Rainbow Chalkboard design I chose, April has two other more subtle options: The Sunshine and The Black and White Dot!
