Do you pick a secret star, mystery walker or secret worker? This packet is on sale for $2.40. It's one of my favorites because I do secret star, mystery walker, etc. My kids are so quiet walking to lunch and specials because they LOVE earning a secret star badge.
This next pack is filled with 24 multicultural badges/beads. Perfect for diverse learners.
Want to win a packet of behavior beads? Leave me a comment with a new bead suggestion.
Samson's Classroom Giveaway
I am so happy to be able to do a giveaway for a year subscription to Samson's Classroom ($80 value). It's one of my favorite websites for learning sight words, spelling words and reading comprehension. The giveaway will last until next Saturday. If you aren't the lucky winner then you will be so EXCITED because Samson's Classroom has agreed to provide $70 off.The promo code RMN2 (as in "Run Miss Nelson") will give you $70 off a classroom plan until September 1st.
That's only $10 for a full access account . I would totally pay even the $80 because it's that good.
- We love all of the portions but my favorite portion for my 1st graders is the reading passages. The reading passages are divided up into different levels. Students are asked to read a passage and answer comprehension questions about their reading. If a student answers incorrectly, the program is great about highlighting the area of the passage where the answer can be found. I like this because it forces students to go back and reread to find the correct answer. I love that they are actually looking back in the passage to make sure their answers are correct because they want to earn "hammer swings"! If they miss a question they earn less hammer swings. Hammer Swings are just a fun incentive at the end.
You should try it out for a free demo lesson.
This little boy earned a black belt from Samson's Classroom. He LOVED earning this recognition. Samson's classroom is so wonderful to work with. They sent him a black belt, a certificate and featured him in their newsletter.
I'm really excited about Samson's Classroom releasing a FREE iPad/Android app this October!!! It is not an iPad version of the web-based game... it is a stand alone app that will help kids to work on their sight words. It seems super fun!! Follow their fb and tell them I sent you to be entered into the giveaway. You will also get the latest info when the new app releases.
To enter the Samson's Giveaway visit their fb and "like" them. Tell them Miss Nelson sent you! Leave me a blog comment stating you left them some love and don't forget to leave your email address so I can contact you if you are lucky!
Good Luck. Winner will be announced next Saturday.
