SALE and $20 Giveaway!

In case you haven't heard, the next TpT site-wide sale kicks off Wednesday! The theme is "Teachers Are Heroes," which I totally agree with! I am not only participating in this sale, marking my prices at 20% off (and if you use the code "HEROES" you will get that extra 10%, giving you 28% off your total), I am also offering a chance to win $20 to my TpT store before the sale begins! I figure it's a great way to get into the shopping mood. I mean, who doesn't love shopping for free stuff?! There are SO many ways you can enter using the Rafflecopter below.

Before you enter, maybe take a sneak peak at some of my favorite resources that you could win with your booty! Here is a blog post about how using my Daily Math Reviews help strengthen your students' math skills.

 The last set of resources I want to highlight are my Social Studies Close Read Packs. These are PERFECT for seamlessly integrating literacy with social studies. There is never enough time in the day, but these packs make it super easy! It's like getting extra minutes! I talk about the American Revolutionary War Heroes pack in this blog post, but now I have packs for Significant People in Black History and a pack about Theodor Seuss Geisel. The first two sets are available in packs for 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade, or you may want the bundle option of all three grade levels to differentiate for your students. They can all ready a passage on the same topic, but on their level! The pack about Theodor Seuss Geisel is available as a bundle.


You get ALL this in one grade level pack!
