Too Much Glue! And a giveaway!

Hi y'all-
I have a cute new book to share with you.
Too Much Glue (written by Jason Lefebvre, illustrated by Zac Retz, for release: September 2013), is the wacky story of a boy who, despite his teacher's warnings, lands himself in a sticky situation. The book is absolutely adorable and teaches a little lesson about creativity and {using only a touch of} glue! We all teach these expectations- and it is SO much more fun to incorporate literature into these lessons! I'm so excited about using it this year! If I taught 1st I would use it as a writing starter {see the freebie below- keep scrolling!} and I definitely will revisit this story toward the end of the year!

The good news is.. I am giving this book away to one of my followers! 
I've teamed up with some friends of mine to offer you a giveaway with some fabulous "back to school" goodies!!

My friend Diandra from The Idea Hub is giving away a few back to school items. Diandra was the counselor at my school until {waaaaa!} she got promoted to a middle school in our district. She is amazing and has just begun her journey in blogging- go give her some love!

My friend Jill from ABC's and Polka Dots is giving away her Brown Bear Pack. Jill is seriously the SWEETEST teacher/ blogger out there! She and I "met" through blogging and she always leaves the most thoughtful comments on my blog. I adore her. And her blog and products are SO cute!

  8. I haven’t seen that book, but it looks like a fun way to teach kids not to use too much glue! The moral of the story is that using too much of something is never good, and that includes glue, colours, papers etc., This will be a great giveaway to kiddos in the kindergarten. Shannon @
