Secret Admirer Blog Hop

Not too long ago I came across the blog of Jamie Sears. 

Diary of a Not So Wimpy Teacher

Jamie is a first year teacher. She teaches third grade. Since I teach 2nd, I had been looking for some items that may challenge my busy bodies. Plus, I knew I would be teaching 3rd for summer school. Jamie was amazingly gracious and sent me her entire ELA bundle of task cards. 

To say I was beyond excited is an understatement. (Now, just to let you know, she does sell each of these individually as well). Here's the thing, you do not need to be a 3rd grade teacher to use these task cards. There are so many skills we teach in 2nd that are included. 

I personally was so excited to use Prefixes, Suffixes, Homophones, Author's Purpose, and so much more. I mean seriously, you name it, she's got it. 

One of my favorite parts is that with each set, Jamie includes a "suggestions for using task cards" page. I could think of some of these, but she takes the guess work right out of it <-- and believe me, at the end of the year, I needed that. 

Now, my computer died two weeks ago, so I unfortunately don't have pictures of my kids (our last day was two days ago, but Jamie won us over with question #1 on the reference materials set (since we live in GA): 

And I would be doing you an injustice if I did not tell you about the awesome post Jamie just did this past week about organizing these task cards - girl after my own heart!!! 

Jamie, I cannot thank you enough for sharing with me, especially as all of technology failed me at the end of the year. I am actually teaching 3rd grade math to the kids who did not pass the state test (as our scores came in this past week). I can't wait to go snag all of her math task cards. You should go check them out as well

Be sure to go check out some other blogs we admire!


  1. Thank you so much for your kind words!

  2. I can't find Jamie's ELA task card bundle for sale. I only see them individually. I put several of hers in my card. Loved the math review and test prep cards. Would like to find the ELA bundle.

  3. I found it on TPT. I only saw a link to a Teacher's Notebook store on her blog, so I was looking there. Thank you though!!
