Back-to-School: News, Updates, and a TpT Sale!

17 Aug

News & Updates! 

I’m disappointed to say summer is almost over… and this is the first time I’m getting on my blog to post anything new (sigh). I have a good excuse though — I GOT MARRIED! Here’s a little sneak peek of our perfect day: Canalside Yes, I’m officially a Mrs. now! 🙂 And of course, that begs the question… will I be changing my blog/store name, MsJordanReads? Nope. I’ll be changing my real name, but keeping everything else MsJordanReads.

So, between my 101 DIY wedding projects, the wedding itself, and then an extended honeymoon, I can pretty much say the wedding took over my summer. Not complaining, but it leaves me with a growing list of unchecked items on my blog and teacher store “to do” lists. Now that I’m back to reality though, I’m starting to prioritize and get back into the “teacher groove.” I’ve already created a few new items for my TpT store (check them out below!), and I have a blog giveaway in the works!

(SPOILER ALERT: Since my “Teacher Appreciation” giveaway from Dansko last May was such a huge hit, I’ll be hosting another one this upcoming week. Winners will be chosen on Saturday, August 24th! Check back Monday, or subscribe to this blog, to find out more about how you can win a pair of VERY comfy black boots for the fall. You’re going to love them!)

“Back to School” Annual Sale

It’s that time of year! The annual Teachers Pay Teachers “Back-to-School” sale is back! Here’s your chance to get all those resources you’ve had your eye on and have been waiting to put in your cart. I know I can’t wait to purchase a TON of new things for this upcoming school year.

BTS TpT Sale 2013_MeredithAnderson(Thank you to Meredith Anderson for the great banner!)

All the items in my store will be 20% off August 18th and August 19th. Use Promo Code BTS13 during the 2-day sale for an additional 10% off my already discounted prices (essentially, giving you a 28% discount). You don’t want to miss out on these great prices!

Below are a few of my newest products. My biggest goal this month was to complete the remaining “Daily Fluency” packets (beginner & intermediate levels) for the year. I’m not sure how, but I managed to pull it off in time for this week’s sale! If you don’t know what “Daily Fluency” is, check them out! The monthly packets are PERFECT for implementing independent fluency practice in your classroom each day. The activities included are Common Core aligned (RF.4) and reinforce all the components of oral reading fluency.

Primary “Daily Fluency” (K-3)



Intermediate “Daily Fluency” (3-5)


If you love the individual packets and are interested in setting up a year-long fluency practice routine with your students, consider my “Daily Fluency” Bundles! Both the primary and Intermediate packets are available as 12-month bundles. The bundle gives you two months free, but if you purchase the bundle during the TpT sale, it will be like getting FOUR months free!

Intermediate “Daily Fluency” Bundle (3-5)


Happy Teaching!
