Just had to share...

I did a bit of shopping on Amazon last week and just had to share what I got in the mail today! I love coming home to a box of goodies... since it doesn't tend to happen very often!

A parent in my class used this book to teach her son to read. Considering he started Kindergarten reading on a second grade reading level... I'm definitely going to give it a try for my little guy! I love that this teachings reading AND writing!

Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons
My cover is a slightly newer version but the same great book. Each lesson is about 20 minutes or so. I'm excited to try it this week!

I also got an awesome new book for my classroom. One of the other teachers that I teach with has this book and I love ALL the activities in it!

The Complete Phonemic Awareness Handbook (Rigby Best Teachers Press)

There are so many great ideas, activities, and games in this! There are even assessments and letters to parents. I love, love, love it!

What have you bought for your classroom lately? What about your own children at home?


  1. Hello! I feel the exact same way about receiving goodies in the mail. When I get a new CD, book, or toy in the mail I feel like a kid in a candy shop! Recently I ordered the book "The Three Billy Goats Fluff", and it's SO sweet! Come check out my blog. I just put up a new video on the top, and there are lots of giveaways.
