Light a Fire With a Good Book - and a HUGE Giveaway!

Hello hello!!!  Can you believe that we are already into August???  I don't know when you go back to school, but I am headed back on Monday!!  Well, to be truthful, I've been in meetings and staff development since July 22nd, so, I feel like I'm already "back!"

Since the end of summer is here, several of us bloggers have come together to give you some awesome ideas for Back to School Books! These books can be used to set up your classroom community, begin a good lesson, or just as a fun read-aloud.
The book I'd like to share with you is...Enemy Pie!

It's a great book for building community within the classroom!  We use it each year, and it's always a class favorite!  We love this book so much, we even made a unit to go with it!!  AND, it's JUST been updated!!!

Check out the adorable "friendship pie" that we made with our classes last year!

We have a freebie that goes along with Enemy Pie that you may want to check out!
We also just uploaded a new product that can go with ANY back to school book!!!  These interactive notebook activities would be a great way to do a quick assessment of skills your students have or haven't mastered and there would be no stress for students because they are such fun activities!

And have you heard? Teachers Pay Teachers is having a site-wide Back to School Sale August 3rd and 4th, so you will be able to get our Enemy Pie Unit and our Back To School Interactive Notebook Activities for 28% off using the promo code BTS15!
We know what else really "lights a fire" in you, and that is fabulous technology! We are giving away a brand new Kindle Fire HD6 to one lucky winner!
