Desert Text and * E book giveaway*

Well, it was a Monday. Maybe it's my lack of caffeine during the Lenten season or my new diet (I am in a wedding and going on a beach vacay all in the month of June!)- but Mrs. King was just a little bit cranky today.  Really-I should be a in great mood- my students were very good and they knocked the socks of their Money Assessment (thanks in part to my *Mega Money Unit* I think!). So what better way to make an attitude adjustment than to host a giveaway. 

As I told you all a week or so again, I love teaching about the Desert.  Today I used this FANTASTIC book to talk to my students about the animal and plant adaptations. The book is full of children's tunes with a "desert twist." My students' favorite was the one about the Javelinas set to the tune of "I'm a little teapot," and I guarantee it had NOTHING to do with Mrs. King's singing!

Anyway- the best part of the book is the pages of resources in the back.  There was a great little game that my kids really enjoyed where they had to guess the Desert Animal based on the adaptation listed. Back to the point of the rambling- **Sylvan Dell** said they would give one *E Book* version to one of my followers! Winner will be announced Thursday evening!
Please leave me 1 comment below and tell me that you follow Sylvan Dell on *facebook*!
And then another comment that you are a follower of me and my TPT store!

If you haven't gotten a chance to download my Desert Learning Log, you can do so below.  I also made a document where my students record facts that they learned about the Desert during their independent reading. 



Just for fun, here is one of my sweeties reading the great book!

Aaaand just in case you missed it, I posted Spring Literacy and Math Centers on TPT last night. The Spring Centers and my Money Packet are on sale for tonight only!  Go check it out!

Off to tuck my kids in and watch The Voice!
