Back to School in a Flash {Curriculum Must-Haves}

This week we are looking at must-haves for your curriculum.
I've been in the process of revamping my {close reading products} to include a paired passage with each topic. If you own any of them, they will be updated before that month begins. If you don't have any, I have a few freebies that you can try!
Elizabeth at Fun in Room 4B has an awesome math product called {Math Moves}. I three-hole punch each weekly sheet and have students put the it in their math binders. We do four problems a day as a warm-up Monday through Thursday. On Friday, I give them the ten-ish question quiz that covers what we did that week, and I allow them to use the page that we did earlier in the week as a resource.

Here is what I absolutely adore about this product. Number one - it spirals through all of the CCSS standards. Number two - it's enough for the WHOLE YEAR. Number three - It's ONE PAGE PER WEEK!!! Some of the problems require more room to work, but I just have the students use the back. Number four - It is a serious bargain at $10. AND, she is the sweetest person in real life.
This year I have to teach science for the first time ever. I'm hoping that the {Science Penguin's NGSS INB activities} will help, so I have those on my wish list!
