So In Love With Books Giveaway!

Welcome blog hoppers!
I'm Allyson from Going Strong in 2nd Grade and I teach at a public charter school in North Carolina.  I've been teaching 2nd grade for 5 years and blogging for a couple years now.  I'm excited to be teaming up with 11 other AMAZING bloggers to share some of our favorite Valentines  books in a fun So In Love With Books Giveaway!
Along with FREEBIES for each book, we are also giving away a copy of each book. Make sure you read all the way to the end of this post to find out how to WIN!

This year I introduced my kiddos to Amelia Bedelia (the original) during a week-long study of Amelia and literal/figurative language.  They thought she was so silly and were quick to stop me and explain what was really said and how Amelia "messed it up".  This Amelia Bedelia is a younger version of the original Amelia Bedelia and is written my Herman Parrish, the nephew of Peggy Parrish, the author of the original Amelia Bedelia series.

In Amelia Bedelia's First Valentine, it is Valentine's Day in Amelia's classroom and she is so excited for what the day will hold - but, getting her first Valentine card might be the most exciting part!  But, come time for the party, Amelia realizes that all of the cards she had spent time making for her friends, were left on the school bus, under her seat, where she tucked them that morning.  Luckily, young Amelia is quite resourceful and finds a way to solve her problem.  Even better, after school she finds a great way to use the valentines that she left on the bus that morning to make someone's day a little brighter.

So, I've got a little freebie to share with you that goes along with Amelia Bedelia's First Valentine.  This sampler pack includes 2 printable activities - parts of speech search and idioms.

Want more Amelia Bedelia activities to accompany this sweet book - I've got you covered!
This set includes 7 printable activities (the 2 from the freebie, plus 5 more), 2 center activities, and printable valentine cards.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Before you hop onto see my sweet friend, Shelly at Smiling and Shining in 2nd Grade, don't forget to grab my number!
