  1. I just entered the Discovery Series contest. 144 Science books!! That would be A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Thank you for sharing the great resources!

  2. The Discovery Series – Plant the Seeds of Science. WOW! Who wouldn’t like to have that for their classroom. Six copies of 24 books aligned to Common Core. This sure would help feel the requirement of reading more non-fiction to/with students.

  3. I teach preschoolers and I am really looking forward to poetry month! We plan on writing a poem together as a class this April…The animal poetry book looks awesome!

  4. I like the guided reading books the best. We just began guided reading in kindergarten and could use this books since we are a title one school.::.

  5. The publishers thought of a fun way to integrate different poets into the same book, with a topic kids love–ANIMALS!

    I would like to win the animal poetry book or the 144 guided reading books!

    Thank you.

  6. I would love the poetry book. We always do a unit on poetry in 4th grade and would love to add this to our class library.
