  1. I want to try TeacherWeb. My own district website has become so difficult to use that I can no longer use it! Thank you for a new resource!

  2. I would love to win the DK set. We will be studying rocks, space, minerals, animals and reading about ancient Egypt would be a plus. That would be so awesome!

  3. I would like to win The Pumpkin Countdown book for the students in my classroom. We tried the website for summer school and it was great. We are trying to get the corp to let us sign up for the school year. Freda

  4. I went to the Watermelon website last year and ordered the CD from them. It has a LOT of great ideas to use! I would also love the Teacher Web subscription!

  5. I would love the DK books. I use them all the time in my classroom. And I already entered. Thanks Learning Magazine for bringing us such great classroom products.

  6. I like Pumpkin Countdown because it integrates Language Arts, Math, and Science. We do a unit theme on pumpkins and would love to have this book for our science rotation on pumpkins.

  7. I would love to have one of these books for my kindergartners…We would love to have something fresh and new in celebration of the upcoming festivities…thank you for the opportunity

  8. What a wonderful resource site. Not only do you provide your viewers with tons of information but you also provide opportunities to win wonderful equipment for our classrooms. In these tight times every little bit helps teachers/provider in continuing to provide quality experiences for our children. Thanks for all you do for educators/education.

  9. I just entered the DK contest. As a first year teacher, I would LOVE to be able to add new and fun products, especially books to my classroom!!!

  10. Literacy is such a large component to communication with young children. When we read we hit so many milestones such as social, emotional, cognitive, Language and literacy. It is amazing to watch a child’s eyes light up when we read them a story using voice tonations. I would love to share this book with our families!

  11. I would LOVE to win a subscription to Teacher Web ! Many of the parents are more likely to “click” on information instead of reading papers sent home. I have heard the “My mom/dad was cleaning and accidentally threw it out!” excuse. It would be so helpful to have all the information parents and students need, any time, at their fingertips. I have mine crossed in hopes of winning!

  12. The Pumpkin Countdown looks like such a wonderful book! I would love to win the book and read it to my new students. I’m a brand new teacher so I would love to bring new and exciting books into the classroom! 🙂

  13. It fall and who doesnt need a book with pumpkins Seriously people. Havent we all read the classic ones wake us up with something new Please ! I beg you!! Besides presents are always good no?
