Spring Giveaway and Currently

Yahoo, it's March!  That means spring is coming, right?  I'm not letting the fact that it's snowing outside right this very minute dampen my excitement.  I'm just pretending I don't even see it while I shop for bathing suits and new spring Jamberry wraps online.  I'm refusing to think about winter any longer, from this day forward in my mind, it is spring!  A Michigan girl's gotta do what she must to stay positive after four long, snow covered months....

So, in the spirit of spring, I'm hosting a little "Spring is Coming" giveaway. I'm giving away a copy of my newest product - Common Core Critical Verbs Vocabulary Word Wall Cards. They turned out so cute, I'm printing and laminating them as we "speak."  I hope you'll love them too!

As you know, the Common Core Standards have some pretty tricky verbs in there and we need to be explicitly teaching our kiddos to understand what these verbs are asking them to do.  For example; articulate, analyze, synthesize, paraphrase........

I strongly believe in the intentional, purposeful teaching of vocabulary.  I've mentioned it many times before, but here it goes again, according to Robert Marzano's research, students need exposure to academic vocabulary words up to 26 times before they truly reach understanding. 

Posting these critical verbs is a necessity so you can continually refer to them throughout the year!




If you want a copy of this product, March might be your "lucky" month.  Enter below. Giveaway ends on Wednesday, March 5th at midnight!

Lastly, I'm linking up with Farley's Currently because it's spring!  Yahoo!!
