This is a giveaway you won't want to miss!


It's no secret that I am a fan of Joy Cowley!  I haven't read a book of hers that I didn't love but I am especially in love with her Mrs. Wishy-Washy characters.  So you can imagine how thrilled I was to hear that Hameray Publishing wanted me to host a mini-giveaway!!

It's almost time for the yearly Joy Cowley Classroom Giveaway from Hameray Publishing, and this year they're running special blogger mini-contests like this one with additional prizes!

Joy Cowley Early Birds features Joy's "learning with laughter" writing style, made famous by the Mrs. Wishy-Washy books, at low levels for your beginning readers. The series now includes big books that will get your students excited about reading. Written at guided reading levels C–G, these books are perfect for welcoming your emergent readers back to school.

The mini-prize being offered in this contest is a copy of the Wishy-Washy Garden big book! Your students will love finding out what Mrs. Wishy-Washy's animals think of her garden. I have a small copy of this book and would LOVE the big book!

A $22.50 value, it would be the perfect addition to shared reading time. Enter now by clicking HERE.  

Also be sure to check back here soon to learn more about the big giveaway opening on February 1st! The grand prize for that one is worth over $1500!

Good luck!!!

Number Mazes

A month or so ago you might remember I posted a 1 to 20 number maze in my store.  While looking for the post to link this one to I see that I neglected to post about it so you may or may not have seen it! - oops!!! It looks like this ...
Students subitize their way through a maze to create a 'path'.  They use numerals, ten frames, tallies, dice and dominoes to reach the finish.

If you haven;t tried the free one, please do - you can find it HERE.  Then if you like it you can look at the 12-pack :)  The free maze is not included in the pack, so even if you purchase the pack you'll still want to download the free one.

You can find the full learning pack HERE.  When trying to decide on a clip art theme I went with camping since your students will be creating a path just like these adorable hikers!

As always, the first 3 people who comment on this post will receive a copy of my newest learning pack.
