  1. I use “Clark the Shark” for a theme on manners and morals in my preschool classroom. It would great to win the books. Of course I would love to win the Elmer’s Glue prize pack also. Thank you for all the useful info.

  2. I enjoy sharing the “Bear” stories with my classes and the students really respond well to them. This would be a great prize to win.

  3. My students love reading stories where the central character learns something about himself. I love it when it can be applied to my students. “Clark the Shark” is a great book to remind my students about the importance of sharing.

  4. The Bear book, Sharing Shark book and the Elmer’s essentials all sound great. All teachers love winning stuff for their school.

  5. Bear Has a Story To Tell would be great! Not only teaching about hibernation, but also sharing a new book with the students would be a great thing to do!

  6. The Elmer’s prize pack would be awesome. I always plan projects and crafts for students. I feel like I personally fund Elmer’s with all the glue and materials I buy. The “Clark the Shark” book would be great especially for any grade level because they always need a special reminder on how to share.

  7. I would love to win the Elmer’s prize pack. They have some wonderful and helpful ideas for putting together a Science project presentation. Just in time for me! Thanks!

  8. I love the animal art contest. It is a great way to get kids interested in animals and art. I have had students who entered this in previous years.

  9. I would love to win any of the prizes, but I really think that the Elmer’s prize pack could really help out with a lot of classroom needs! 🙂
