Raffles and Giveaways!

I love free stuff! But, I can only use so much of it, and then it clutters my desktop, virtual and physical! But here are a few different raffles that are happening this weekend and into next week that you may want to take part in!

ELA in Middle School
on Facebook
First, there's the one that we are running ourselves through our Facebook page! This one is for the year's worth of 5th-8th grade ELA Bell Work, Focus on Grammar! The entire year is mapped out! We will be giving away 5 sets of the Bundles on Tuesday, June 23. To enter, simply follow the link, like our page and the post, and tag two teachers on Facebook who you think may be interested in the Bundle as well!

We also have a "pick your prize" giveaway going on over at Amber DeLong's Facebook page, Miss DeLong's Shop. Simply visit Amber's for Middle and High School Math resources, like the page and post, and tag two math teachers. Then, Sunday, June 21st, Amber will be selecting 4 lucky recipients at 7 PM, and these folks will have the opportunity to browse and select their prizes! Stop in for your chance to win!

Another "pick your prize" this weekend is for our lower elementary teachers, and it comes from Teacher's Tribe, the store of teacher-author entrepreneur Leann Westbrook Pracht. Again, like and share the post by 12 AM Sunday to be entered into a drawing held on Monday. 2 winners will select their prizes from her store on AmpedUpLearning!

Finally, we have a TpT sale and giveaway being run by four stores working together! Go to their Facebook pages, like their post, tag 3 teachers, and hopefully win a resource of your choosing from EACH store! They are Canadian PE Teacher, The Learning Beach, Teacher on a Trip, and Anna Glews. Check them out!

All in all, we have raffles running for all grade levels, in most, if not all, content areas! Stop by the different stores, see what you can use, and ENTER TO WIN!

Teaching with Themes in the Middle School ELA Classroom

As you know, I teach Middle School ELA. Here's a couple things about my teaching styles that you won't know about me unless you work with me.  First; I hate being told what I have to teach. Absolutely HATE it! Give me the standards you want my kids to master, and give me the dates you need checkpoints in by (ok, local and district assessments), but don't tell me what materials I have to use, or worse, what materials I CANNOT use!  Now, don't misunderstand. I will be happy to plan with my team, and use the same materials as they, but don't limit us or expect us to present it the same way. We are professional, individual, teachers - so let us teach! The other thing I hate, although not nearly as much, is the mandatory use of a textbook. I feel that it limits choice, usually, and the selections are usually ones that the students don't like. Except Edgar Allen Poe, Langston Hughes, and a VERY few others. Fortunately, I am blessed, and I know it. My administration te

How Giveaways Build a Business - A Guest Posting by Cortney Gaynes

A Note from Matthew: This post was penned by teacher-author entrepreneur Cortney Gaynes. Cortney's is an amazing story of entrepreneurial growth and success! She first came to my attention by way of our mutual friend and business partner, Gregg Williams, co-founder and CEO of Amped Up Learning . Gregg kept talking to us about the phenomenal success Cortney was having with her store on AUL, TeacherSorce . (Not a typo this time! Its a PUN!)  I had to learn more, so I reached out to her. I asked her if she has a blog, and she said no, she has Palmer, her nine month old daughter, instead! I expected her success to be all social media based, which I am not the best at. According to Cortney, she places the credit on adaptability, building a lemonade stand when the world was handed a bunch of lemons in the form of Covid-19, and - at the heart of it - giveaways. Let me allow her to explain. Cortney's Biography Cortney Gaynes, Teacher-Author Entrepreneur and Palmer's Mom My name is

Becoming a Teacher-Author Entrepreneur Parts 1 and 2

Why become a Teacher-Author Entrepreneur? Have you ever worked with one of those teachers who can quickly create the most awesome lesson plans in a 40 minute period, and you just know that your kids are going to love doing this amazing thing, and you are exhausted trying to keep up with the creation process just from watching? And these same amazing people wonder why everyone else spends HOURS of personal time creating lessons at home. Yeah. They are irritating, and fantastic, and always giving. And I am NOT one of them. It takes me HOURS to put together a great lesson or even the lesson plan. I used to think of those as invested - but lost- hours, because I only had to plan it once, and then I would have a hard copy for perpetuity. But I would never get the time back, and we don't get paid extra for working in the evenings, weekends, or during our summer (is he REALLY going to say it?) vacations, hence the "lost" factor. If you also are not genetically modified to
