Hi everyone! My internet has been down for a WEEK! I felt like a part of me was missing this past week without it... and that's sad!
BUT... it has been restored and I am so glad I can blogstalk, post, pin, Facebook, e-mail, and actually do some WORK from home! :)
I just wanted to share this exciting story with you...
A couple of months back, I came across this awesome book online which I thought I could use to snag my kids in on writing... especially those reluctant kiddos who think they never have anything to write about.
Sadly, the book was out of print and I could only find it listed for hundreds of dollars on ebay and Amazon. So, I psycho-ly stalked the author, found their e-mail address, e-mailed them, and asked if they knew of any way that a poor teacher like me could get a copy of the book at a reasonable price.
And... the author responded! AND the author said that the book was being re-printed and would soon be available again... AND the author said he'd send me a free copy when he got his first shipment!
AND... I GOT IT LAST WEEK!
Thank you so much, Angelo DeCesare and Flip, for caring about kids and being so generous! I LOVE that you even personalized my copy for me and my class. We will treasure this book forever! :)
Would you like your own copy? You can click here to order it from Barnes and Noble!
I promise to get back in the swing of posting and sharing useful things... I wasn't even motivated to work on my computer without any internet to distract me this past week! I will be making some new freebies for my "Christmas Around the World" unit. Anything you'd like to see in particular... let me know in a comment! I can't promise I'll do it all, but I'd be happy to see what I can do!
