The idea for a giveaway came to mind because I need some ideas for a list of short books that can be read aloud and used to teach a reading skill. I decided to ask for help and give away a copy of my book at the same time. If you win and you already have Power Reading Workshop, you may request Graphic Organizers for Reading or another book from my website.
I should also share that one purpose for the giveaway is to let people know about my Corkboard Connections blog. I've been told by teachers that they follow me on Facebook or receive my newsletters, but they didn't even know I had a blog! I started Corkboard Connections last fall as a place to share some of my favorite strategies as well as to learn from others. So please share this blog post and help me spread the word!
Entering is easy! You only have to do two things:
- Follow my Corkboard Connections blog by email, RSS feed, or by using the Google Friend Connect link. Personally, I like to follow my favorite blogs by email because the blog posts come right to my inbox. But some people prefer to use Google Feed Reader or other methods, so that's fine, too.
- Leave a comment below in which you share the title of a short read aloud (15 to 20 minutes max) along with the skill you teach with the book. Your comment could be as simple as saying that you use Jack and the Beanstalk to teach character motives. Or you could leave a more detailed comment with specific information about your lesson.
How will a winner be selected?The contest will end on Wednesday, February 22nd, at 8 p.m. EST. I'll use a random number generator to choose from all eligible entries, and then I'll post the name of the winner in a new blog message. It will not be announced on Facebook or in my newsletter - be sure you are following Corkboard Connections so that you'll receive that special blog post if you win!
I'm looking forward to reading about your favorite books for teaching reading strategies and skills. I know I'll discover some great children's books as a result of the sharing and collaborating here!
