I am participating in two fun things right now. First, at my Facebook page I am part of the August Facebook Frenzy. What's that you ask? Well I have a tab on my page and if you click it you can pick up a freebie (back to school scavenger hunt!) and then you will see "Next Stop" which will send you to someone else's page to pick up their back to school freebie. Awesome, huh? Click HERE to go to my Facebook page to get started. Here's a sneak peek at the scavenger hunt. Click on it to also go get it from my FB page.
Also, Teachers' Notebook is having a big back to school sale. All of my items are on sale for 20%. I also just posted a new product, the Fall Themed Addition and Subtraction Story Problem Pack for half off, ($4.13) but since it's on sale, it's only $3.30. Holy moley! Approximately 4 dozen pages of story problem practice for $3.30!? Below is a pic of the cover and if you click it you go right to the item at Teachers Notebook. I also included a couple other great deals from the sale- again click on the images to go see more details or to snag them now.
Here's the original post at Doodle Bugs Teaching if you want to see who linked up in time!) Now, I am not back to work yet so most of my five have nothing to do with school...
#1 Andrea at Reading Toward the Stars is having me guest blog today! I am delighted - she is a Reading Specialist and has a great blog and wonderful ideas. My post is about phonics and I share a few ideas with you that may help your students learn those skills and have fun at the same time! For example, check out the Word Slide game below from FCRR that I made!
#3 I took a trip to the Tampa area to visit some friends from college. Here's the view from his mother's beach house patio. Tough life, huh?
#4 One of the fun things we did was go out on his family's boat and two of the kids tried kneeboarding. They both had tons of fun and it was fun just to watch! We brought the boat back to the marina and were driving out when who did we see? Hulk Hogan packing up his car! Seriously! He must keep a boat at that Marina too. We were driving so no pictures :( but so crazy!
#5 And right before Florida my friend and I went to Mohegan Sun. Here she is hitting the slots. It was great! we always have a blast and I did win $70! Yahoo!
