The MsJordanReads Website Launch Party is finally here!
For those of you who have been readers my blog all along, you’re probably thinking, “Ummmm… your website has been launched since June!” Welllll, yes. Technically the redesign has been “live” since June (Doesn’t it look fabulous?! Thanks, Jumping Jax Designs!), but I’ve been doing a lot of behind the scenes work updating my blog and making my website run smoother and more efficiently. Now it’s finally “launch-worthy,” and I’m ready to celebrate!
Want to celebrate with me? The MsJordanReads Launch Party be a weeklong celebration (9/4-9/8) to launch my newly redesigned website and blog. Every day there will be a giveaway, and every day YOU will have a chance to win!
How can you win? It’s easy! In order to enter, you have to answer a question having to do with my website or blog (Don’t worry… I’ll take it easy on you! I’m sure most of you are in the throes of “back to school” exhaustion!). Just answer the question in giveaway widget below. You’ll have the option for extra chances to win by following me on social media or subscribing to my newsletter!
Check back each day this week. Every morning at 7:00 AM EST, I’ll be editing this post with a new giveaway that you won’t want to miss! I’ll be announcing the winners at the end of the week. 🙂
Are you ready to join in on the fun? Here we go!
Day 1 Giveaway
Giveaway #1 is a gift card to Amazon, my favorite shop-in-your-pjs website, where you can literally buy anything, including a banana slicer (because who has time to cut bananas with a knife?! Read the reviews… they’re amazing). Or you can just stock up on books for your classroom.
Grab a kick-off freebie! To help kick-off the launch, I’m sharing FREE fluency bookmarks that will be perfect for helping your students set goals for their fluency. Each week, your students can set new goals and record them on the bookmarks. You may need to guide them through small groups or 1:1 conferences until they are able to self-reflect and evaluate their own fluency. They can then use the bookmark while independently reading as a reminder of their fluency goals. (Not sure where to get started with your fluency instruction? Check out my Fluency Boot Camp post here!)
Day 2 Giveaway
The launch party continues! Day 2’s giveaway is a gift certificate to Teachers Pay Teachers. One winner will win $25 to stock up on some literacy resources for the school year! (Will it be you?!)
A huge thank you to Selma Dawani for donating toward this prize. Check out her store HERE!
Day 3 Giveaway
Win my new favorite book! This year, our building is doing a school-wide kindness theme based on the popular book, Wonder. It’s a fabulous read aloud for our older students in 4th and 5th grade, but I recently discovered the children’s book version of this amazing book to use with our 2nd and 3rd graders. Have you read it?!
We’re All Wonders carries the same message of “choosing kind” and is perfect for teaching empathy and kindness in your classroom. Do you want to win a copy for your classroom?!
For Day 3’s giveaway, I’ll be giving away TWO copies of the children’s book, We’re All Wonders by R.J. Palacio. Enter for a chance to win! (NOTE: You must be a U.S. resident to win this prize, sorry!)
