What's In the Box???? An AMAZING ELA Giveaway!!!!

Ok friends... yesterday I showed you the box I got in the mail from my friends at Barker Creek Publishing.

So, here's what I got last week...

Then I opened it and this was what I saw...


Are you getting excited yet?

Ok... I gingerly pulled this paper off (aka- feverishly ripped it out of the box) and this was below...

It is their ENTIRE "Reading FUNdamentals book and poster pack" and it is seriously amazing.  Like, uncontrollable-smile-giddy-with-glee-as-you-thumb-through-the-books-and-look-at-the-cute-posters-amazing.  Seriously.

It has large posters and small poster sets AND workbooks for homonyms, synonyms & antonyms; compound words, nouns, verbs & adverbs, adjectives, collective nouns ,prefixes & suffixes, idioms, and similes.

I love the colorful, kid-friendly illustrations and kid-friendly language.



Check out these workbooks... I LOVE them.  They really make kids think, make connections to their learning, and apply their learning.  Did I mention I LOVE them?

They also sent me printouts of all of the ways these materials are CCSS aligned... look how thick this folder of Common Core goodness is...

I already have some of their products and love these grammar posters...  You can click the pic to see how I used them in my classroom.

They have also just launched a new line of classroom decor that is too stinkin' cute!  I love these happy birds!

But wait, it gets better.

Barker Creek Publishing is going to GIVE, yes GIVE, one lucky winner the entire set of "Reading FUNdamentals books and posters".  It's over a $150.00 value, so we are talking about a major prize here, friends.  Each component of the kit is also available separately if you'd like just the books or posters.  Here is the link to their GRAMMAR PAGE where you can find each part of this kit, plus lots more affordable goodies!!!

You can enter on the Rafflecopter widget below and I'll announce the winner on FRIDAY!
