Tried It and Two for Tuesday #5

Thanks to The Teaching Tribune, I have been loving Two for Tuesday this summer because I’ve been able to stock up on some great items for the new school year at 50% off.  Who doesn’t love a sale?!?  

Here are the two items I have chosen from my store to mark down 50% or more:

This is one of my most wishlisted products and today it is only $4 instead of $8.  This is a product that can be used all year long with over 50 homophone pairs.  The posters give a sentence and visual example of the homophones.  Students then write their own sentence for each homophone.  This has really helped my students understand the difference between the homophones.  I have just finished updating this entire product.  All of the examples are now complete sentences with capital letters (I had to change my original font). I have also added an optional Homophones of the Day journal for students to fill out each day.

This booklet is a great way for students to see patterns within multiplication.  Today it is only $2. instead of the regular $5. For each set of multiplication facts, students will skip-count and color the hundreds chart to visually look for patterns.  They will then complete fact family houses for that set of facts.  This process really helped my third graders catch on to the patterns in multiplication and increase their multiplication fluency. 
I am also linking up with Holly at Fourth Grade Flipper today for Tried it Tuesday because I have used both of these products in my own classroom with great results.  I have used the Homophone Posters with my 2nd and 3rd graders.  The Multiplication Booklet is a better fit for 3rd graders.. Tried it Tuesday is a great way to gather new ideas that have actually been tried in a real classroom.   
Don't forget to visit both linky parties to get some great ideas and score some great deals.
