Secret Stories Giveaway!! ~~~CLOSED~~~

This is for real y'all... I am giving away a Secret Stories kit!  This is a $90 value and I'm giving it away to one lucky winner.  It will change the way you teach spelling patterns to your students F.O.R.E.V.E.R.

I was first introduced to Secret Stories a few years back by a team member of mine.  A light bulb went off in my head when I saw this program.  The creator of this program, Katie Garner, is AMAZING!  Secret Stories are ingenious.  "What is Secret Stories?" you ask.  Let me take the explanation straight from their site since I get so excited when I think about it I don't want to miss anything!

"The SECRET STORIES is a multi-modal, brain-based, teacher ‘bag-of-tricks’ that transforms reading and writing abilities of primary and struggling, intermediate grade learners. Through visual, auditory, and kinesthetic means, the SECRET STORIES activates every learning channel within the learner, and personally connects them to the skills."
{http://www.thesecretstories.com/}


This kit includes everything you'll need to effectfively teach Secret Stories to your students.
{Included: teacher's book, audio CD, and color classroom posters}

Secret Stories are a part of everyday life in my classroom.  My students constantly use their Secret Stories to read and write words.  The little stories with the pictures truly stick in their heads and they really think it's a secret!  When I introduce a new story to them, we close our classroom door and whisper.  I hold my book like it is TOP SECRET information.  This whole program really grabs their attention and makes learning possible!  I cannot tell you enough how this has changed the way I teach words to my kids.

So, here's how this amazing classroom kit can be YOURS....
There are 4 chances to enter the giveaway.  You can do 1, 2, 3, or all 4!  Please read the directions carefully.

1. Follow the Secret Stories Facebook page by 'liking' it.  Leave a comment with your email address on this post saying you did so.
2. Follow my blog.  Leave a comment with your email address on this post saying you do.
3. Follow my TPT store.  Leave a comment with your email address on this post saying you do.
4. Blog about this giveaway on your blog.  Leave a comment with the link to the post and your email address on this post saying you did so.

This is one secret you will not want to keep to yourself!  The giveaway will run through midnight (EST) on Friday, May 4.  {No late entries will be accepted.}  The lucky winner will be announced on Saturday.
