Neenah Astrobrights Paper Review!

Oh boy, oh boy! I was absolutely thrilled when I was contacted by to review some of the Neenah Astrobrights Paper! I was in heaven when that box arrived. My mind went wild thinking of all the wonderful things my students and I can do with this colorful paper! 

First up, I have to tell you about this fantastic color card stock! (In the picture it is on the right side.) The paper is just wonderful! The colors are awesome and bright. One of the things I did with this paper is write letters in black paint and make signs for the students to hold up and spell Thank You Donors! I have had lots of projects funded at and I knew this would be bright and stand out in the pictures! 

The next pack of paper I received was this pretty and colorful copy paper. (In the picture, it is on left side.)  With this paper, we made a birthday book and crown for one of the students that celebrated his birthday. The book was filled with colorful happy birthday wishes for him to enjoy! 

Not only does offer office supplies, they also offer promotional productsmedical supplies, and office stationary!

I hope you will decide to try out these great paper products! I have a feeling you are just going to LOVE them too! Feel free to share your thoughts!

Pilot FriXion Clicker Erasable Gel Pen   This is a great pen. It is erasable too!


Frixion Highlighter  Not only is this highlighter erasable, but it was perfect for reading through and marking things I didn’t want to forget!


Pilot B2P Gel Rolling Ball  I think these are the neatest pens ever! I love the 0.7 fine point and all the cool colors. They write so smooth! Not only do you get a great pen, but when you buy this product, you are going green since they are recycled!


Pilot BeGreen B2P Bottle Gel Rolling Ball Here is the same pen above but it is in black. How many times do we have to fill out papers and sign them with a black pen. Well, look no further. This gel pen just glides across the paper!


Pilot B2P Recycled Ballpoint Pen Well they also have this fabulous pen in blue ink! It is just as great as the black and the color pens!


Pilot Acroball Pen Fine Point  This is a blue ink pen. This pen has a textured grip as well as the wonderful gel ink. The really great thing about this pen is it dries quick and is refillable.


I love how Pilot is making products and thinking about the importance of being able to refill the pen.  


Not only does offer office supplies, they also offer promotional products, medical supplies, and office statioinary!

I hope you will decide to try out these great pens! Feel free to share your thoughts!

It's a Letter Buddies Giveaway!

If you like giveaways, read! 

I just have to tell you about some books that I was able to review with my students.  When I got the email from Tara, I JUMPED at the chance and I am so glad I did! The company, Hameray Publishers, has done it again! They have a full set of materials in the Letter Buddies classroom set that you can go enter and possibly win on their website. 

I was able to select the books that I wanted to review. I went back and forth debating which set to ask for and finally settled on the Letter Buddies Starter set. Can we say JACKPOT?  Here is what was in my package! 

The Letter Buddies Starters titles are used in correspondence to the Letter Buddies Letter Books. Using the same vocabulary, the Starters places each word within the context of a sentence. This is a great way to reinforce what students learned with the Letter Books. (24 Titles)

 One of the things I absolutely LOVE are the wonderful non-fiction pictures. I also love that the sentences are written with one line and some have two the same book!  
Extension activities are included at the end of each book.  I will probably send use them for students to read at home and I was thinking I could make up a little booklet for the students to write their answers and extend their learning.  

I do not think you would be disappointed with this set of books. My students have loved reading them during self-selected reading time. They are perfect for beginning readers and will be great for struggling readers who need a bit more help with letters and sounds. 

WAIT! There is MORE!

Be sure to enter my giveaway below. You can win a lap book from the Letter Buddies collection to use with your students. Click here to see the lap book. They will love it-I am sure! 

 Hameray Publishers is having an awesome giveaway. Check out what all you can win.... PLEASE hurry...the winner will be announced June 2! 

You can also find Hameray Publishers at the links below. Follow them to keep up with new things and enter more giveaways!
