Showoff Saturday

Good morning friends!  Yes I said Good Morning!  I am up early this morning and actually on time with this week's Showoff Saturday!

Let me just say I never imagined how popular this little gem would be!  You all were awesome last week and really showed Greg from Kindergarten Smorgasboard some love!  Thanks for all the participation and congratulations to the winner! 

This week we are going to be taking a look at probably my VERY BEST TEACHER FRIEND on the planet!  She and I have known each other for about a year and a half online and finally got to meet in person a few weeks ago in VEGAS!  OMG we are like two peas in a pod!  Both Southern Girls and SWEET TEA DRINKERS!  It can't get any better!

Meet Valerie from Georgia Grown Kiddos!!!  She was kind enough to shoot over her R-Controlled Vowel Set for me to review!  Peeps this pack is FABULOUS like a a ice cold glass of Southern Sweet Tea on a 104 degree day!  Man...I love it!  Well I could type all day about it but why don't I just let the video do the talking!  Be sure you hang around and sign up after the video for a chance to win this wonderful resource delivered to your door ready to go into your classroom!  Should you want this pack NOW or you really want it digitally as well just follow the link to Valerie's TpT Store where you can purchase it!  Ready....Set.....ACTION!!!!

  3. New teacher and need all the help I can get. Love the idea of winning something I could really use! Thanks for sharing, Farrah!

  4. So all through the video I was responding to you like if you were in the room with me! R controlled vowels really ARE so hard to teach! I love the flexibility and range of the activities. There are so many different recording can work for two weeks in centers for practice before they would need to start the pages again! I can have then in a sheet protector and let them write with an Expo! :) About a minute in I decided I needed it. By the end of the video I decided to just get it myself! I entered the contest before I watched--so if I am the random winner...Please select someone else to win this! :) I will miss you laminating for me....but I am really excited to have this and use it! :) What a wonderful time saver! :) Thank you Farrah....and Val too, of course!!! :)

  5. I agree, Valerie is fabulous! Love your video, too! I hope I win, can't find enough stuff for those tricky r controlled vowels!

  6. I'd love to win this pack. You're right, firsties do have trouble with r-controlled vowels and all the differentiated and varied activities will help all levels.

  7. This is such a great resource to have in our toolkits!! I LOVED your video, and those r-controlled vowels are so tricky!! Would love to win this raffle and start using it this year!! Thanks so much!!
