This year is the FIRST year I am going Black Friday shopping... check in with me in a couple days to make sure I am not in jail ;)
The EXACT things I wanted to get my nephew for Christmas are available during Black Friday and I am SUPER excited to go fight off some crazies for it!!! But this is definitely where I LOVE online shopping!!!!

The pack and I are teaming up together to bring to you our most wanted products from Teachers Pay Teachers as well as some ideas from our store for you.... and A GIVEAWAY!!  WOOOO!

So below are things in MY WISHLIST that are definite MUST HAVES for the Black Friday sale!

1. Ashleigh - 3rd-5th Grade Reading Workshop Unit 4.. I have the other 3 and this is AMAZING! It's a curriculum in itself. She has really out done herself!
2. Deb Hanson - I am obsessed with ALL of her powerpoints! They are the best review for my kiddos teaching a strategy or grammar.
3. Teaching with a Mountain View - There's a reason she's a top seller. Her task cards - perfection!
4. Miss DeCarbo - I love her text based evidence sheets. They teach my kiddos to go back to the text and that is something they struggled with before her products!
5. Jivey - This is a LEGIT better than basal product. I have had it on my wishlist for awhile since it's a higher priced product, BUT it's so worth it!!!


You can find all of these in my store!!!! Look around if you haven't been before. They're the best!!!

Missing Mrs. Thomas...

Hello there my sweet blogging friends!!!! I have been COMPLETELY missing for quite some time from my blog!!! I have missed it, for sure, but my life has been such a roller coaster I have had zero time like I wish I had. I just really want to recap on some things that have been going on in the life of Cassie Thomas as of late. 

First off... My master's degree.
I am currently working on my masters in reading and this was my very first semester. It's been rough, time consuming, but also very rewarding. I have learned a tremendous amount in just one semester so it makes me super excited to see what else will come from this program. So that's where my evenings now go. I hate that I've had to stray from blogging, but I am bettering myself and in the end I know blogging will also benefit from my education! :) 

Secondly... new grade
Moving from kindergarten to third has been a HUGE transition in itself. It really feels like being a first year teacher all over again. On top of mountains of changes that are happening at our district that take some time to get used to. So stress has become my best friend and it's still currently taking over my life. 

BUT --- my kids are learning and growing and in the end that's the utmost important thing. I love them, and I am learning with them. It's been a process to figure out what works with 8/9 year olds. I was great at figuring that out with 5/6 year olds, so it has definitely taken a learning adjustment. :) 

Here are a few pictures from the past month. (I can't believe I hadn't blogged since October 1. EEEEKS) 

Then we have the newest addition to my blogging career -- The Primary Pack! I post on the 30th of every month! You can find me there :) 

I will be posting a few blog posts later! Just wanted to catch you up and fill you in on my crazy life!!! Check out my store, I have a few new products and one is on sale for the rest of the week!!!
