Thankful Thursday Giveaway: Teaching Resources

Yahoo!  We have a winner!  Congratulations to



You have won a Blog Update from the 3 am Teacher!  I will be contacting you shortly!

I am so grateful for the wealth of teaching resources that is available at our finger tips now. When I first started there were a handful of forums (Proteacher anyone?) but nothing like the network of blogs, and online stores that are available now.  Way back in the dark ages you actually had to drive all the way to the teaching store and shop! Now I can just click and it will arrive at my house in 3-4 business days.  I think I may literally do ALLL my Christmas shopping online this year.

So to celebrate, I will be giving away some goodies!


 


For my next giveaway, I will be giving away a copy of these two awesome resources!


Carson Dellosa asked me to review these items and are allowing me to give away one copy of either the Common Core Connections Math book or Common Core Connections Language Arts book.  The winner can choose the book subject and grade level .

I ordered the second grad level and I have to say, I loved them.  I really loved how the book was organized and made it easy for the teacher to find and use what they needed quickly.  In the front of the book was a matrix linking standards to the page.



These books would be PERFECT for common assessments.  I am not sure if this is something that your school is working on, but at my previous school we created common assessments as a grade level to make sure that we were assessing the same things.  Which we all loved and agreed with....but making the assessments could be so darn hard!  This takes all of the work out of it! Most pages only cover 1-2 standards so it is easy to use it as an assessment for the standard!


And as much as we all hate the pressure of standardized testing, I think we can all admit that it exists and is overwhelming (the pressure, not necessarily the tests).  These books all have a mixed skills assessment in the front of the book.   An item analysis of each question is included in the answer key WITH a link to correlating practice pages.  This would be perfect to give prior to state assessment. Then the teacher could use the item analysis to plan for remediation of skills and use the pages as a resource before the kids take the test. Is it bad that I just put that all out there?   So basically, I love these books!

But I am not done giving away yet!  I will ALSO be giving away a $50 gift card to Amazon!  I LOVE Amazon and use it all the time to order things!  It is a great way to order teaching materials online AND I always feel safe using a credit card with them (extra bonus).

Wanna win?  Easy!  Just enter below!  I will announce the winner next Tuesday with my new Giveaway!
