Half Million Views: A Celebration of Blogging and Giveaway Day 1


I cannot TELL you how excited I am to get this giveaway rolling!  I really wanted this to be a celebration of blogging, so I have invited 20 blogging friends to share some of their favorite blog posts with all of us!  Each day this week I will focus on 5 blog posts that are full of great content--one from me and 4 from my illustrious guests!  The giveaway posted each day will feature $10 of prizes that YOU CHOOSE from each of the featured blogger plus $10 from my store for $50 worth of prizes each day!  Ready to see what content is waiting for you today?  Just scroll down and click on each bloggers logo to take you right to the post they have chosen to share.  ENJOY!


Looking for ways for students to "show what they know"?  How about 72 of them?  Check out this great post on "Minds in Bloom"!

Looking for a GREAT way to get students excited about reading?  You are NOT going to miss this one at "4th Grade Frolics".  


Looking for a post FULL of content about the importance of developing reading fluency in the intermediate grades?  You are NOT going to want to miss the amazing content from "Teaching with a Mountain View"!

Think your classroom library could use some sprucing up?  Come see what "2 Peas and a Dog" did to reorganize hers!

...and now MY first of 5 featured blog posts!

This was one of my "Bright Ideas" posts called "Pocket Chart Problem Solving".  For those of you who "know" me, you will know I am trying to do ANYTHING possible to get more math problems into students' hands.  Check out this easy way to do just that!

Ready to go do some reading?  Ready to win $50 to spend?  Enter the rafflecopter below.  This raffle will be open for 3 days--so make sure to stop by EVERY day this week for more great posts and giveaways!  By Friday, you will have $300 worth of prizes that you have a chance to win!  ALL WINNERS will be announced on Monday!  Notice that you can earn THREE entries by leaving a comment about something you read on one of the posts...tell us what you loved or learned.

And you know what?  Just for fun?  Since I had HALF a million page views...how about each day this week I offer one product at HALF off in case you want it!  (Note...going to skip Wednesday because of all the other fun!).  
Today's half price fun?

  3. Love the post about the importance of fluency...I used to teach sixth grade and it was an ordeal when some students read aloud. (For them and the listener, unfortunately.)
