Samson's Classroom... an AWESOME Giveaway!

I've been trying to wait to post about this, but I'm just too excited!

Have you head of Samson's Classroom?  It's a web based educational software program designed for early literacy that focuses on sight words, spelling, and reading comprehension.

Well, about two weeks ago, I was offered a classroom account and not one... not two... but THREE free year subscriptions for my bloggy friends!

I was going to wait, since I just had a giveaway for the Easi Speak USB Recorder but I can't wait any longer.  I got my students set up last week and we've been having a blast with Samson!

You can input your own spelling lists so students can get extra practice or use their pre-loaded lists.  I love "Read with Samson".  The passages are perfect and I love how, if you get a question wrong, the part of the text with the answer is underlined.  This is really helping my students feel ok about looking back in the text to double check their comprehension because so often, they just like to "be done" without being right.

And I totally wish I would have had the "Sight Words with Samson" at the beginning of the year when my first graders were working on mastering their sight words!

Here's a link to a little video for you to get some more info...

Here we are at the computer lab today, completely engrossed in the activities:

So... you can enter once by leaving a blog comment AND if you "LIKE" Samson's Classroom on Facebook, you can leave two more comments for a total of THREE entires!!!

Good luck!!!!  I'll announce the three winners on Saturday morning!

And... you can still enter at Teacher's Notebook for one of my Marshmallow Adjective packs!  Click the pic for more info!
