Show Us What You Bought Linky Party

I just had a field day during the Back To School TPT Sale!! I'm linking up with Bloghoppin to share some things that I bought this weekend and how I plan to use it.

One item that's been sitting in my cart for a while now is Equation Station by Amy Griffith. It's Boggle for math and the bundle includes 5 puzzles for addition and subtraction, and 5 puzzles for all operations. I set up a pocket chart right next to a comfy couch with pillows so that early finishers could plop down and try to find some math equations! I can't wait to set it up. Check it out here.

I also picked up some items from Ashleighs store over at Ashleighs Education Journey. I've blogged about some products I've gotten from her before- I just love all of the 3rd grade math items she has! I still have quite a few items in my wishlist that I plan on getting from her store soon :)

I love the anchor charts she's made and I have a space set aside on my wall to put up a chart when we're on that topic. In your download you get two copies of each chart- one you can print on a regular size of paper and one that's made to be 18 x 24 if you'd like it nice and big. I plan on sending mine to the website she suggested to have them printed this size for $3 per poster.. not bad! Grab them here.

From her store I also picked up Restaurant Math. This fun activity includes 32 task cards that can be used with almost any restaurant menu. What an awesome way to show students how math is used in the real world! I plan on asking students to bring in a menu from their favorite place to eat if they can, and then have them work in groups to solve the task cards. You can check out the product here.

Last but not least, I went clip art crazy over at Scrappin Doodles and Graphics from the pond! I picked up these fun sets and can't wait to incorporate them into my lessons and worksheets.
