Well, I’ve gone and done it. I’ve cleaned out the antique armoire in my house. It was a gift from my mother too many years ago to remember. It’s really old – I think it’s from the Civil War era. It’s held together with pegs and fits together like a puzzle. In any event, I pretty much use it as a giant junk drawer, constantly shoving things in and shutting the door. Hey, the rest of my house is neat, just don’t open that armoire!
In cleaning it out (for now), I came upon a few items to giveaway. They say one man’s trash is another’s treasure and these are NEW and UNUSED items!
First, I have a signed copy of the lovely and amazing (really she is) Angela Watson’s Awakened. This was NOT in my junk drawer/armoire, but sent to me by Angela herself to read, review, and giveaway. This book is basically a Self Help book for teachers. Angela walks you through issues common to teachers like stress, conflict, and getting down on yourself. I enjoyed reading it and I can say, heading back to school, this is one book both new and veteran teachers would find beneficial.
Next up, I have a box of Bob’s Books Sight Words for Kindergarten. I have this in my classroom and I think I was sent an extra box to giveaway and forgot about… oops! Hey, my male forgetfulness can be charming… just ask Mrs. D. about all the times I say, “Oh, I’ll just put this important item down here for a minute until we need it.” Cut to her asking me where said important item is and me looking sheepish. Really, the woman is a saint to put up with me. ANYWAY, here you have it – a complete box of kindergarten sight word books from Bob’s Books. There are ten books and thirty flash cards in the box.
Last, but certainly not least, I have a puppet to giveaway! What’s that you say, only a crazy man would give away a puppet! Well, I’ve been told I’ve got enough puppets and I’m trying to do the nice thing and share some of the wealth. This is a brand new, still in the bag, Scardey Squirrel puppet. He’s pretty awesome if you ask me.
Finally, Debbie Clement is graciously offerring a signed copy of her new book Red, White, and Blue to one reader. See my post about 9/11 for more information on the book.
SO, there you have it. FOUR prizes. FOUR winners. I will use a good ol’ random number website to pick three winners.
- Winner one will receive the book.
- Winner two will receive the sight word box.
- Winner three will receive the puppet.
- Winner four will receive a signed copy of Debbie Clement’s Red, White, and Blue.
