Since October and Halloween deserve one last hurrah, I’ve got a stash of four—yep, count ’em—four Halloween-themed books that one teacher will win. Simply post a comment on this blog by 11:59 pm EST Sunday, November 8, 2015, and tell me whether you have a class of savers or spenders for your chance to win these books.


****************
In It’s Raining Bats & Frogs (Feiwel and Friends), a rainy day threatens to ruin the annual Halloween parade, so one little witch decides to make the rain a little more interesting. All things Halloween entertain a pup and a youngster while Mom is away in Carl’s Halloween (Margaret Ferguson Books). In The Fun Book of Scary Stuff (Frances Foster Books), a boy and his two dogs learn that even the most frightening things are less scary when you’re with those you love. Then two boys bring home a cool egg from a swamp in Scary Tales: Swamp Monster (Feiwel and Friends). What happens when the creature of the swamp wants it back?  (Update: congratulations to Amber, who is the winner of our prize.)

  1. My class is full of savers! We have a very large population of children living in poverty in our District and they really appreciate the resources provided at school.

  2. My class has a few spenders but mostly they are savers which works well for them come class auction time where they can spend their classroom reward money.

  3. Spenders most definitely. Especially lately I am hearing about all the Halloween spending. Hope the activities will teach them about saving some for a rainy day.

  4. I like the “fun Book of Scary Stuff”. We do fund raisers for special topics at my day care. The children love to bring in their pennies. We collect over $800 in coins for one of the children’s walk.
