#BeTheDifference GIVEAWAY :)

Hi Friends!

Who loves a good giveaway? I am teaming up with The Mailbox Magazine to bring you a wonderful back to school activity and a chance to win a GOLD Mailbox Membership!
Enter #BeTheDifference sweepstakes by clicking the picture below. It is easy as 1-2-3. Just upload a picture that shows how you are getting ready to go back to school with a 250 word description of how you are making a difference in your students' lives. Then use hashtag #BeTheDifference. You could win all sorts of fab prizes like a Mac Book Air, a Mailbox Gold Membership, or a Visa Card! 

As most of you know, I LOVE BOOKS! Have you seen my new library reveal? Anywho-I came up with a new twist on the common reading interest survey. All you need is a beach ball, black sharpie, and reading interest survey questions.

On each slice of the beach ball, I wrote questions I wanted my students to answer. For example: "What is your favorite chapter book?" "What do you do before you start a book?" "How much time do you spend reading?"

As a first week in school activity, play "Reading Ball". The students get to sit on top of their desks and quietly throw the beach ball to a peer in the class. When a student catches the ball, he or she will answer whatever question their right thumb is on or closest to.
Back to school, reading, interest survey
 It's a win win in your classroom. The students get to sit on their desks and play a game, and YOU get to learn about their reading habits/interests.

 "Open the Magic!" in your classroom. Find out what genres your students love. I actually did a blog post about that here. Allowing students to be part of the learning can create a community of learners. I had a professor in college that always gave the students an interview at the beginning of the year. This helped her know how to plan her year to best fit her students. #perfect!

#BeTheDifference and show your students you care about their learning. You never know; they might open your eyes to a whole new world.
