  1. I would love to have the book, Chicken Story Time to read aloud to students in my elementary library! Hatching a new surprise each week – love this idea! Anticipation will be fun and predicting outcomes will be a key skill !

  2. I would love the book for my classroom! My fifth graders love getting read to even if they are small books! A new surprise every week would be crazy, maybe I could stretch it out to one every month 🙂

  3. I downloaded the homework from ed-helper and entered Mailboxes new contests. Thank you for the opportunities. I always find the greatest things here!
