The year is winding down…here’s a little fun for you!

We all know that teachers have magic powers.  From eyes in the back of our heads to super-sonic hearing, we are a talented bunch, I tell you!  But this time of year, spring fever has hit, and with the end of the year in sight, we all need a little extra magic to keep us going!  So, in the next few weeks, I’m joining with my favorite intermediate teachers to put a little extra magic in our lessons and keep students engaged.

We will be swapping resources that will be just what we need to keep our students engaged during the final weeks of school.  We want to share our finds with you in a fun way – a 2-part blog hop giveaway!
Today, we present Part 1, with each blogger introducing the resource they selected to keep their friends engaged and learning in our final weeks together.  Then, over the course of the next two weeks, we will be using these resources in our classrooms.  On Sunday, May 11, we’ll be back to report on how well these resources kept our students engaged!

So I was lucky enough to be paired with Deb from “Crafting Connections” and after looking through her HUNDREDS of products, I asked her if I could try some of her informational text structures resources because we are working hard on our informational text reading and writing units, and I was looking for a little “Something New” to keep things interesting.  We have been using them already, and I can’t wait for you to see some of the great stuff she has!  Come back for Part 2 to see what we did!  Want to see her amazing bundle?  CLICK HERE!

Now to the giveaway!  Here’s what you need to do:

Finally, don’t forget to stop back in two weeks!   On Sunday, May 11, we’ll all be back to share with you how the magic went in our classrooms!  Oh yeah, you might want to know that that there will be a SECOND GIVEAWAY, too!    You are also going to want to come back that day to see a GREAT new monthly feature on my blog!  Until then, enjoy the magic and happy teaching.  🙂
