Scholastic Magazine Summer Giveaway

Hi, friends!  For those of you on summer break, I hope you're having a blast!  For those not quite there yet, hang in there!  Summer's ahead!  I've been on break for a week now and it's been glorious...pool days, bike rides, movies, and Kings Island!  I'm looking forward to many more fun days ahead!

One of my favorite summer activities is reading!  I rarely read for pleasure during the school's just too time-consuming with my teaching job, blog/tpt duties, and house duties.  I look forward to picking up a few books to read during the summer months.  In fact, I already have my stack of books ready to go!  As a teacher, I hope my former {and incoming} students will be doing the same.  I work hard all year to instill a love for reading in them.  One way that I do this is to expose them to a variety of books/reading material.  In addition to enjoying books from my personal collection, our classroom library, and the school library, we read a new Scholastic Magazine each week.  What I love about Scholastic Magazine is that they include a variety of interesting topics for my first graders.  I also really like the fact that they incorporate holidays/special days into their magazines.  This is always a great supplement for teaching about holidays.

Today I am partnering up with Scholastic to bring you an awesome giveaway opportunity!!  For a chance to win cash prizes {$250, $500, or $1000}, simply post a photo or video of yourself on vacation with a Scholastic Magazine.  Be creative!  Simply use the hashtag #ScholasticMagVacay with your photo.  Not a subscriber?  You can request a free sample by clicking HERE.  

Below are two places I took my Scholastic Magazine: the city pool {because who doesn't love to lay out and swim in the summer?} and on a bike ride.

Mr. Wheeler and I ride our bikes a lot during the summer.  We live near a 9.11 memorial site, where there's an actual piece of the twin towers.  We stop each summer and pay our respects to those who lost their lives on that day.  I thought the "My American Snapshots" Scholastic Magazine was appropriate for this particular stop.

The giveaway runs June 1-August 31.  Have fun and good luck!  Click HERE for official contest rules.
