Giveaway Time !

Time for my First Giveaway !
I am one follower away from 50, plus I am in the mood to give away three of my favorite poetry books! I plan to include a surprise with each book, too! Maybe some fun gel pens or cute post it notes.
Here is the books I am giving away - so that means THREE winners!! Here are my three favorite books!!

I just love this book by Jack Prelutsky!

I have loved Shel Silverstein since I was a third grader and my teacher would read these poems after lunch. I remember we would always beg for more!

Bone Poems by Jeff Moss. Who doesn't love poems about dinosaurs? I used this when I taught my theme on dinosaurs in grade one.

Just leave me a comment to enter. I will pick a random winner for each book! Here is what you have to do:

1. Tell me if you are a follower and what you love about poetry. Make sure you tell me which book you want to win, too!
2. Tell me which book you would love and one way you would use it in your classroom.
3. Blog about my giveaway! Again tell me which book you want to win!

Don't forget to leave me an email so I can contact you if you win!

You have 3 chances to win your favorite book! !! Good luck! Make sure you enter by Saturday by 11:00p.m. When I wake up Sunday, I will do the drawings!

Good luck !

Happy Reading!


  1. I love new blogs about reading! I just discovered you and am excited to be your newest follower! I love using poetry in the classroom because it is an amazing resource to introduce and teach literacy skills!. It is great for teaching fluency and looking for new vocabulary, teaching inferencing and visualization. I would love to win any of these 3 books - I do not own any of them!


  2. If I won, I would use the Prelutsky or Silverstein book to teach visualization and inferencing skills. I have taught a lot of great lessons using their poems, but do not actually own the books.


  3. I'm a follower! I'd love Something Big Has Been Here or Bone Poems. I already have the Silverstein book, tho my copy is falling apart!! :) I love incorporating poetry throughout the year to teach vocabulary and practice fluency.
