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!

Are YOU a Sharpie Fanatic LIKE ME?

Oh my goodness, I have to tell you about the goodies I got in the mail from the fabulous people at Shoplet. I have loved Sharpies forever, but I am so excited to share some of their newest things with you! 

First up, the Neon Sharpies are fantastic! My students love for me to check their papers with these markers because they love the colors! They are just as wonderful as the other Sharpies you have grown to love. They fit perfect in my hand and are not too heavy! My only complaint, if there was one, is I wish they did not bleed through on papers that are copied front and back. Yuck. However, I learned some wonderful news....they are coming out with a set of markers that will not bleed through the paper! Yay! 

Also included in my review package was the Sharpie Premium Pen. Now let me just tell you, this pen is a dream and it fit perfectly in my hand too!  I wrote thank you notes to students that purchased a book for our class from the Book Fair. I was so excited-I have found a pen that writes smooth and does not smudge! Wow, great pen without a doubt. 


Last, I also got to review the Sharpie Metallic Fine Point Markers. Well, who would have thought a gold or silver marker would show up so bright? Check out the writing on the black paper...awesome! I had my doubts because I have tried to use paint pens but they just do not show up as well. I already know these will be perfect when my students make crafts for Mother's Day...I will definitely be buying several sets of these.  Another perfect marker indeed! 

                Don't forget, Shoplet also has promotional                       productspromotional shirts, and office stationary!

What a Day!

Hi friends,

Today has been such a difficult day for me! My dad has Parkinson's. He was diagnosed in 2008. This is a HORRIBLE disease but I do have to remind myself it could be worse. My mom called me at 9:30 this morning and his blood pressure had been so low that the doctor's office said she needed to call 911. Well, she didn't know what to I am like I am getting in the shower, call them and I will be right down there. Lucky for me they live approximately 3 minutes away. My daddy is 76 years old and has never been to the hospital before so he was scared to death-bless I can take almost anything except to see my daddy cry! We followed the ambulance and got there around 11:00. They did all kinds of tests on him and they all turned out great-ekg, ct scan, blood tests and urinalysis....however, they did have to put in a cath so hopefully that will help him and the meds will be tweaked. We were home around 3:45 so it was such an emotional day. We will follow up with a urologist this week.  All we can do is pray. If you believe in the power of prayer, please remember him! 

I know this posts sound so pitiful me but I do love my daddy for sure! I am a daddy's girl from way back! Here is a picture of us at a wedding of close friends. He looks great but his blood pressure just is all over the place so that gives him trouble. He also has the tremors in his right hand but they have been using botox to help with that.
