Spring Break Giveaway! & a FB freebie

I'm on Spring Break (finally). I have been quite unproductive as far as blogging and school goes. Sad. I should be doing school work, creating, paperwork....but nope. I've been reading, making wreaths, walking the dog, and being a lump on the couch. Quite productive I think. 

I am also excited to blog a little about an app that I was asked to test drive!
The Rhyme to Read app features 20 books that each focus on a word family.  There are 4 stories for each short vowel.

There are two versions..... the first is a free download of book #1--that way people can try it first (you can buy the rest from in-app). The second version is just buy the whole 20 book set. It's $9.99 but totally worth it! OR you can buy each book for $.99 but might as well buy the whole set I think!

Here are a few snapshots!

Rhyme to Read is a beginning reading program comprised of 20 short books. (Yes, 20!!!)

Each has a running list of the word family on the left and then has the sight words (introduce 35 sight words throughout!) located at the top. Students can touch each word to have it read to them!

Each of the twenty books, four per short vowel, highlights a specific word family (e.g., bat, cat, rat).

Each family is color-coded throughout the series with a different color (e.g., bat, cat, rat).  

Thirty-five common sight words are introduced and previewed the first five times they appear. Sight words are distinguished by black type.

I love how everything is color-coded. This definitely helps my kiddos because I color-code as well when working with word families!

It also provides various ways that you can use this in the classroom or at home!

Before you download please make sure you have iOS 6.0 or later (or else it won't work!)

And guess what!! They are letting me give ONE away to ONE lucky person!! How cool! I'm also throwing in my Buggy Measuring!

So easy to enter! Just follow our FB pages!! (I've also added a new fan freebie, but you have to like my page to grab it!)
