Hello Friends!

I am so happy to announce that I have bundled my 2nd grade Houghton Mifflin units! It is EVERYTHING that you will need for the ENTIRE school year! ENNNNTIIIRE. Really. I have had many people request that I bundle these resources together and so I thought it was time to finally get to filling that request.

Now that we have adopted Common Core into our classrooms, there was just oooone problem. Our language arts curriculum was not aligned with CC and so how were we suppose to teach the new standards with old curriculum? That is just no bueno! BUT WAIT. A crazy idea came into my head about 2 years ago to create my own activities that were aligned to the Common Core. Seriously. It was CRAY-ZEE! I began to create and sell and the demand grew. So I created more and sold and the feedback I got were far too kind. Now many months later, my first pair of glasses, endless nights of my sweet hubby taking over my mommy duties, and 1200+ pages later... I am thrilled to post this product at a discounted price of $14 off the regular prices of all 6 themes.

As you begin planning for the next school year, let me take care of language arts for you. I promise, this will be the BIGGEST time saver EVER!

Wanna take a peak?  (WARNING...LOTS of pictures ahead)

Here are the contents of each theme:

Theme 1

Theme 2

Theme 3

You're halfway there!

Theme 4

Still with me?? Almost done....

Theme 5

Last one...promise

Theme 6

WOW! If you are still with me, you deserve ((BIG hugs))

You can see that there is A LOT to these units. It will last you all year long with VERY little prep... just a copy machine maybe. :)

Have a wonderful day and try and stay cool Friends!

My New Life and an Editable First Day of School Sign!

Hi Friends.

This next year I am starting a new chapter of my life. Ever since my kids reached the age where they began going to school, life kept getting busier and busier. Now that they are a bit older (ages 10,8,5) life is just CRAZY; sports, church, dinners on the run, taking kids to different practices, homework, projects, AHHHH!!!! I could not keep up! Last summer, my husband and I both agreed that we could not go on living like that. We did not like running on the hamster wheel. We wanted needed more family time. My husband works different hours than a normal "9 to 5" job so his day off are Fridays. My kids go to school on Fridays. See the problem? We had to make a change. We LOVE my husband's job so that wasn't changing. I LOVE teaching, so that wasn't changing either. We knew we wanted to kids to be home on Fridays so there was only one option. Change the way schooling looked. After 14 years of teaching in the classroom, I am taking a leave of absence to…

Celebration Week!!!

I'm OK. I'm alive!!

Yes, It's been a while since I've blogged. I think it's safe to say that I am just no good at keeping up with my poor little blog. I've come to terms with it. I am no longer in denial. (Holding candle in my hand) Hello, my name is Angela Linzay and I stink at keeping up with my blog.

Alright, now that we that out of the way I feel like we are much closer. :)

I have some very exciting news! This week is special to me for so many reasons. There is MUCH to celebrate....hence the title of this blog..."Celebration Week!" Here are 3 things that I am celebrating this week.

1. I was contacted about a week ago by Teachers Pay Teachers notifying me that I hit a milestone!!!! I began this journey about a year ago and NEVER imagined that I would be at this place at this time. I've truly been blessed and humbled to know that there are MANY amazing teachers out there that chose to spend their hard earned money to purchase my resources. I'…

Five for Friday

It's been a while Friends!

Today I am linking up with Doodle Bugs for her Five for Friday linky party.

I've been working on Depth and Complexity with my students and it has really taken their learning to the next level. Over the past couple of years, I've been going to USC to learn about teaching gifted students from Sandra Kaplan, the creator of Depth and Complexity. The truth is, these strategies work for ALL students and allows them to understand the content much better. My students actually love it!

We just had Open House not too long ago and it was so much fun! Here are some things from my Open House Unit  on TPT.  I've compiled 19 things over my 15 years of teaching that I love to do. It comes complete with templates and detailed instructions. If you need some new projects for your classroom, I'd love for yo…
