I am excited to share a new site created by Deedee Wills and her hubby with you. The site is called The Clever School Teacher and it is designed to help you find the perfect book for teaching reading strategies, writing traits, and grade level content. The site is perfect for you no matter what your needs are - whether you need all of the book help you can get or if you have a vast knowledge of picture books but need some suggestions for how to connect them to teaching reading strategies, writing traits, and author's craft.
I have spent some time exploring the site and purchasing books!! Yah!! I can't wait until they get here. Through my playing around on the site I found tons of new book titles I can't wait to read and use!! The site offers a great selection of popular titles, nonfiction, multicultural texts, and unknown titles. The category listings and the search option make books easy to find. The book sets are my favorite!! I am very excited about the purpose behind this site!! Reading books is so important for growing readers!!
Deedee has graciously offered to giveaway a $25 gift certificate to one of my lucky followers. Entering is simple.... go to The Clever School Teacher, spend some time exploring the site, and leave a comment below sharing something you really liked about the site, how you could use the site in your classroom, or telling about a feature you checked out. Don't forget to leave your email address with your comment. The giveaway ends Monday June 4th, 2012 at midnight.
