Even More Common Core Poetry Activities - Freebie - and a Doggone Good Giveaway!

I've got another freebie on poetry today and the chance for you to win a fantabulous book!

First....the freebie....
Click on the pic above to get activities tied to Christina Rossetti's poem, "Who Has Seen the Wind?" It includes other poems students can use for comparing and contrasting. These are the poems I'll be using our second week back after Christmas Break.
(Remember to set your printer options to "FIT" so that all the material will print on each page.)

Now for the giveaway....
I was excited when I received an email asking if I would be interested in giving away copies of The Miracle Dogs of Portugal, by Tracy Aiello. 
Really...need you ask? Reading is my passion. Sharing reading and books with my kids and friends is just part of that love.
Tracy Aiello's book is the "almost true" story of Henry the Navigator. I love the lyrical words in the story. Aiello actually captures the sound of the ocean in words. Click on the pic below for more info on the book and author.
I have five, yes FIVE, copies of the book to give away. All you have to do is enter below.
And the BEST part of this giveaway.....Miracle Dogs will be donating five additional books to give children affected by Hurricane Sandy. How cool is that?!
Enter now. The contest ends Friday, January 4 at midnight.

  2. Love the giveaway. I am not able to download the poetry activity on this page or in the email I receive from you. What am I doing wrong? I have not had many problems downloading your stuff before.
