You could WIN a DJ Inkers Download

I'm very excited to share something with you. . . . 

Well, actually I have two things to share with you.

First I have connected with DJ Inkers 
(How could you tell? Look at my blog! I'm addicted!)

I love their clip art and have just created an activity to help my kids (and yours too!) with finding the meanings of words in context. I used their Community Bears to teach this lesson. 


My activity is called Word Meanings in Context. . . 
I know, I know, . . .it's a real creative title!


It's a pretty easy activity to set up. Print, laminate, cut, put into an envelope or what ever storage system you use, attach the cover 
and wa-la! You're all set to use it. 

There are 20 cards for your students to read. There is a recording sheet and answer key provided also. I think you could also use this as a Scoot game or a Wall Scavenger hunt too.
 And then some even cooler more beautifuler news! 
DJ Inkers decided to 
give me a shout out on their web page! 
Talk about making me feel mah-vel-ous!
You can check it out by clicking the link below.
You can buy this activity at my TPT Store

Or. ..  
You could win this set! Someone will be the lucky winner . . 
But wait. . . . . 

There's more!

You can also win the whole download so you can have your own set of Community Bears from DJ Inkers.

That's right! You read that correctly! 
YOU CAN HAVE THE 
DJ INKERS COMMUNITY BEARS DOWNLOAD TOO!

For free!. . . . well, sort of. . . You have to enter to win it. 

But that's the easy part! 

Just fill out the rafflecopter below and fill in the information, and by Wednesday, April 24th I'll pick a winner.


Winner of the DJ Inker Community Bears Download
is Debbie Pierce.


Winner for my download is Stefanie Galvin.

That's all for now. Come back on  Wednesday or Thursday to see who won! And stay tuned . .. . I have another big giveaway coming up to celebrate getting 400 followers soon too. . .
You WON'T want to miss that!

  4. I teach in the same community I grew up in, so I start by talking about how the community has changed since I was a kid, and talk about my favorite places in the community...then I send the kids home with a report to fill out on their favorite place in our community. They love it!

  7. I am a huge D.J. Inkers fan as well! We just started our Community social studies unit! We culminate with a walking field trip around our community, get library cards, and meet police and firemen! It's great!

  8. WE use PebbleGo-- the emergent reader online research site-- to marry doing research and community helpers. We are very lucky to have our district subscribe to it:)

  9. Communities is a part of our social studies curriculum every year. We work on classroom community building activities and carry that over to the community that we live in. We make community helper art projects and have community helper visitors as well. :)
