My First Give Away!

I am so excited to be teaming up with Kim Adsit for this giveaway! Kim has been amazing to let me preview her new items up for sale on Teachers Pay Teachers.  I was lucky enough to go to many of Kim's sessions at the I Teach K conference in Las Vegas this summer.  She has great tips and ideas that can be incorporated right away in your classrooms.

So, I bet you're wondering.....what is the prize?

2 lucky winners will receive a copy of Kim's resource pack for  
Jack Hartmann's  Names in Motion

(Sorry the CD is not included in this give away!)

The activities include:  
*How Many Beats? (name syllable book)
*Clap and Count Kids
*How Many Syllables in Your Name? (Class and individual graphs)
*Your name, my Name Syllable Sort
*Sorting Friends

Combining music and literacy activities is a great way to get young learners involved in class activities.  Through music, children learn to:
·         Understand language (we must comprehend language in order to become “true” readers)
·         Experiment with rhythm, words, tempo, and melody (which are important skills in reading    aloud)
·         Think creatively and holistically
·         Make the connection between print and spoken words
·         Practice motor development and motor coordination while experimenting with various instruments and dancing
·         LISTEN (we sometimes forget that listening is an important literacy skill)

So, how do I win this awesome prize?
You must do 3 things:
1. Follow me on this blog.
2. Go to Kim's Teacher's Pay Teacher's page by clicking here and browse through all of her activities.
3.  Post a comment about what your favorite resource is.  Be sure to leave your e-mail address.

You must do all three things to be eligible to win the prize!

Contest deadline will be Sunday, September 26, and I will announce the winner on September 27.

Good luck and happy browsing!  

P.S. Her stuff is really almost too good to pass up - browsing may turn into buying!!


  1. It looks like the deadline was yesterday but you just posted this so I hope I'm not too late! I just love your blog. I checked out Kim's site and love the Solve This Math journal. I am trying to be more math oriented this year!
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  2. Oh gee, it's a Monday! The deadline is next week! Be sure to click "follow" to follow my blog!!

  3. I love Kim Adsit's stuff! I loved her all about numbers activity download. Number concepts are hard and it seems like that would help out!

  4. I really like her work as well. I especially liked the story problems - this year my math goal is to help the kids see the bigger picture of what we are trying to learn! Thanks!
