Back To School Party Day 4 - Graphing Giveaway #7

Have you seen the Staples Commercial for Back to School? The one where the father is singing the Christmas song, "It is the Most Wonderful Time of the Year?" I think it is so funny and somewhat rings true for parents. As a teacher, I loved back to school too. I think it is the start of something new. Starting off with a clean slate. I loved getting my room ready and my lessons organized. It was a great feeling to turn off the light in my classroom the night before school started. I knew I was ready and I was excited about starting a new year with new kiddos. O, what they would teach me!!!

In honor of all the PreK to Third Grade Teachers getting ready to take on the kiddos for a great year, the first giveaway for today is a TEACHER ONLY giveaway. It is for a the Teaching Heart Graphing CDROM and small pocket chart. Retail for over $20.00 total. Read more about this CDROM by clicking here!
If you are looking for free graphing ideas, go here!

Once again... You must be a Prek to 3rd grade teacher to enter. Also you must have a school website or district site to enter...

Graphing is one of the new standards that we need to teach in PreK for the Archdiocese of Chicago. I want to make this fun and exciting for my little ones.

I am a second grade teacher and we do lots of graphing in second grade.
We start off the first day with making a bar graph to go with their birthday months. Students learn about bar graphs and each create different pictographs. I would love to get some new graphing ideas.

Here is the link to my districts' website: www.shawnee.k12.ok.us. I teach in the Early Childhood Center of our district, which houses all the pre-k and k children. Last year our enrollment of 4 and 5 year olds was over 500. I love to do graphing activities with my kindergarteners and I'm always looking for new ideas. The CD sounds like a great resource. I'd love to win it.

Here's my school link where I am the first grade teacher. (We're a small Christian school with one teacher/grade level.) http://www.armbrustchristian.com/Welcome.html
I'd love this CD! I do a daily graph with my kids and always feel like I'm ready to give it up by October when the ideas run dry. I could sooooo use this inspiration to keep up the graphing!

I have thought about purchasing this CD before to create a graphing center, and this would be the perfect opportunity to do so!

I teacher special education first and second grade. I love including graphs for my students do as a wrap up of the week. I am always looking for new graphing ideas.

As a teacher in a Title 1 school, I am always looking for ideas that will help my students make connections to the concepts with their own lives. Your graphing ideas sound like just the thing to make this connection! Here is the link to my school website: http://eastside.dce.schoolinsites.com/
