Big Event fundraiser is having an awesome giveaway. They're giving away a $250 dollar gift card to Target. Go and Enter

Also if you're looking for a last minute thing to do with your class. Check out this freebie. I made it up this weekend and were going to do it tomorrow in class.
I'm going to have my little Firsties read it a total of 10 times by themselves and then they have to play with a friend 10 times. There is also a graphing freebie so grab that too.

Are you looking for a new app for your I-Pads?

Do you have I-pads in your classroom? I'm so lucky to have two in my classroom. I have found an awesome app for your I-pads. It's called FarFaria. It has over 750 children's stories and five new ones are added each week. This app is created for the younger grades. I have two kids of my own and I have introduced them to this app and now I can't get my I-Pad back. It has so many unique stories and my kids can't get enough of it. What I love about it is that it reads the story to the kids and highlights the words as it's reading the story to them. It also uses a wide variety of voices as it is reading the story, it keeps my children entertained.

It also has a reading level badge on every story cover. So you know that the story is appropriate for the child's age. I have a few students in my classroom that really struggle. I'm going to pull them during some of our whole group instruction and have them listen to these stories online to help with their reading skills.
 Here are a few of the cute stories they have on their app.
You can download Farfaria for free and read one story each day. Or you can have unlimited access to all the stories on the site for just $4.99. This app will reach all of the levels of learning in your classroom. 
Here is the link if you're interested in downloading the app for free: Http://

Free Manipulatives

I'm a cleaning freak and I'm trying to clean out my basement while I still have time off. I have tons of manipulatives and I don't need them anymore. I hate to donate them to Deseret Industries because I don't know if a teacher would check there. I would love to give them all away to a good home. I know there are teachers that are just starting out and don't have a lot. If you would like any of these manipulatives let me know. You would have to pay shipping and handling but that is all. Or if you live in Utah you could pick them up from me. Let me know if you're interested.
