Summer Birthday - The Reading Nook

I love summer birthdays, probably because mine is in the summer! Celeste from the Education Highway's birthday is today and I'm helping her celebrate with a fun blog hop and giveaway! Plus we we have a few fun summer tips and ideas for you too to help you get the summer started off the right way. Let's start with the summer tips and then you can see the amazing prize packs from wonderful TPT sellers, the blog hop and Rafflecopter to enter the giveaway at the bottom of the post.

Something we love doing here in the South is to go strawberry picking each May. This year was even better because after we picked four buckets full of delicious strawberries, we bought some homemade strawberry ice-cream from the strawberry farm and I honestly don't think I've ever had better ice-cream! We also came home and made quite a few batches of freezer jam and had leftovers to make these amazing strawberry muffins! Click on the picture to get the recipe from onceuponachef.com! They were simple to make and we've already had them twice since then. Yum!!!

One of the things I love doing in the summer is jumping in the pool and cooling off. I'm not sure if I'll have a chance to do that too often since I'm expecting a baby in a few weeks, however, I can certainly relax on the swimming pool chairs. A few other things we do each summer is sign up for the library reading program, go to the park (usually in the mornings or evenings), and just have fun relaxing.


Click here or on the image above to grab three free books from my sight word booklet sets!  Just download the preview to get them! They would be great to send home with your students if you're still teaching, for some end of the year practice, or if you're tutoring or want something for your own child to use for practice this summer!

Winner Wednesday - Rainbow Dots Set

Summer break is here for most of the schools here in the South! For those of you who are still in school, one day at a time and you'll be there before you know it. Winner Wednesday is here again and I'm joining Jennifer from A Dab of Glue Will Do and Sara from Sara J Creations to bring you one of my newest items I've had so much fun making. For those of you unfamiliar with Winner Wednesday, it's the opportunity for you to win one of my products for free as well as checking out the rest of the products in this fun link up. If you're like me and like to somewhat plan ahead, you might be interested in a new and colorful poster set for your room. 

Winner Wednesday - End of the Year Book

After a long leave of absence, I've rejoined the blogging world for another Winner Wednesday! I'm joining Jennifer at A Dab of Glue Will Do and Sara from Sara  J Creations to bring to you one of my newest products-absolutely free!

I love Winner Wednesday for the variety of products that are showcased for just this one day of the month. Since it is May and for most of the schools in the U.S., the school year is winding down, I thought I'd show off one of my fun end of the year projects. It's a simple lap book that works for 2nd through 5th grades, and besides the fact that it is a fun project for students to think about their year, it looks cute as a bulletin board for when parents are stopping in the building for end of the year celebrations, field days, teacher appreciation and more!

The lap book is simple to make! You start with a file folder and who doesn't have hundreds of them in your filing cabinet just waiting for a fun little project? Fold it so that there is a left and right flap and then have students fill in the sections you choose. There are many options and a few extras just for those students who love to add little details. 

For a chance to get this project for free, enter below with just your name!  Your students will enjoy being creative and the only thing you have to do as a teacher is print off the pages for your grade and write a short note for each student. The rest is up to your class! Enjoy!

Once again, I'm joining A Dab of Glue for another round of Winner Wednesday. This linky is the first Wednesday of every month.

Back to School with The Reading Nook

I'm joining Heidi from Droppin' Knowledge in bringing you the opportunity to win a giveaway!

It's that time of year again...every time I walk into Target or even a grocery store, my kids see markers, crayons, paper and much more they need (or want is more like it!). With homeschooling my preschooler this year, I know I won't need many of these items because I always have them on hand! But who can pass up a great sale on more crayons and markers, right?
