Have you started to think about the new school year, or are you still completely in summer mode? I know that even though I'm busy doing my summertime things, I still think about school more than I care to admit!
So.. for all you early planners... Erin over at I'm Lovin Lit has a super Summer Planning Giveaway for you... and the best part is... everyone wins!
And boy, are there lots of things to win! Take a look at this. . .
Click on the button above to go to I'm Lovin Lit's blog and get all the directions for how to complete the scavenger hunt - and to see all the great products you can collect along the way.
And just in case you've already been there and have stopped by my blog for my secret word... here it is:
Curious to see what I donated to the giveaway? It's my very first back-to-school product! (Remember, I'm new here :-)
I love doing games and interactive activities with my kiddos, so this works perfectly for those first few weeks of school when everyone is just getting to know each other. Choose a page and copy one for everyone in your class. Then set students off to talk with each other and find someone whose name they can write in each box. (I encourage my students to try to find a different name for each box.) After a certain amount of time, I call everyone back to the rug and we share what we've learned about each other. You can do a "stand up if you..." kind of thing so everyone gets to tell about themselves.
I also have some fun math and grammar bundles using the same activity format. You can check them out in my TpT store. Just click on the images below to go to the store pages for more information.
Like what you see? Be sure to follow my store for updates. I have many more products in the works! You can also follow my blog, new as it is, by clicking on the buttons to the right. Bloglovin, Google, email... it's all good! I love the fact that in this giveaway you don't have to follow blogs and stores that may not work for your grade level or teaching area. But I'm sure you'll find at least a few blogs and stores that you like, so give them some love and follow them, as well.
So... here's the scoop - check out for the directions on how to start the scavenger hunt. Visit the blogs, stores, facebook pages, etc of the fantastically generous people who donated to the giveaway.. follow one, two or all... gather all the secret words then submit the google doc form to receive your prize pack. Have fun! And thanks for stopping by!
