If You Give a Teacher...

The iTeach First blog along with the other iTeach blogs are having a great giveaway to kick off Teacher Appreciation!  You can win a variety of gift cards...if you win here are some ideas on how to spend them!  These are some of my favorite teaching supplies.

 Astrobrights paper is also a must have!  When there is no time to color but you still want your interactive notebooks to "pop" just use some of this paper!  Love it!

Scotch Laminator & Pouches- Nothing is more liberating than being able to pull out your own laminator and have something laminated at the last second... everyone knows when you need something laminated fast that someone has let the roll run out!

I love these Liquid Flair pens from PaperMate.  I just happened to come across them in the clearance section of Office Max.  I need all the colors!
This card stock is a steal.  I order it off of Amazon.  A package of it has 200 sheets... the latest price was just under $7.  It's great to stock up for next year and get ready for some great new stations and centers! 

Head on over to the iTeach First Blog to enter to win all of these giftcards!  What a treat for some lucky teachers!  Just click the image below!

Rhyme to Read App Quick Giveaway!

I am excited to be able to share with you some more free downloads for the awesome app "Rhyme to Read".  If you haven't heard about this app, it was developed by teachers who have experience teaching kids to read.

 My students love gradually increasing their reading level.  As they move up in the book levels, they see the same characters and some of the same words which gives them confidence and a boost while they read!

To win a free copy of this app, all you have to do is enter the rafflecopter below!  This will be a quick giveaway and 5 winners will be chosen on Friday!

Five for Friday (Frog Week)
It is hard to believe that it is Friday again.  My kinders studied frogs this week.  Here are five things from this week (frog style).

1.) These are the books that we read this week for frog week. 

2.)  My kinders wrote some amazing sentences on their crafty lillypads.

3.) These are a few pictures of station activities that my kiddos worked on this week.

4.) This character chart is one that was included in Deedee Wills Frog and Toad Activity pack on TpT.
5.) My favorite frog story is Frog and Toad are Friends by Arnold Lobel.  The kiddos really enjoyed drawing the characters and setting for the story.

Endless Possibilities,
