August Currently and Easi-speak Giveaway!

It's time to link up with Farley for Currently!
This summer has flown...I feel like we just had July Currently!

Learning Resources Easi-speak Giveaway
May I tell you how excited I was to be able to try out
 a couple of products from Learning Resources??
And then, to give some away, yay!
I know you have all seen the Easi-speak on other blogs, right?
 Well, may I tell you how much I love this little baby?

First of all, everyone loves a microphone!!
Children can record themselves speaking/reading then listen to their recordings.
How great is that for students (and us) to actually hear how fluently they read???
Love that!!

It comes in a small box and is super easy to store!
*one button to record
*4 hours of audio
*built-in USB for charging

  1. A stocked mini fridge is a MUST! I had to make a Target run on my first day working in my room to stock mine. :)

    1. Doesn't it make you feel like things will be okay if the fridge is stocked??? Have a fun year!

  2. I second the stocked mini-fridge! Got to survive!
    Have a great year.

    1. It sure helps at lunch and when you desperately need a Coke!! Hope you have a great year, too!

  3. I haven't had a fridge in my room in the past, but it is definitely on my list for this year. And like you, I can think of nothing but school. I'm heading into my classroom next week to get things organized.

    Have a great school year!

    1. The fridge is pretty handy! Our school fridge is quite a distance from my room, and I can't waste one minute of lunch time! I'm heading to school this afternoon-never ending!

  4. Do you have a mini fridge in your room?? How cool is that?

    1. I do, Barbara! I don't know how helpful it will be while I'm trying to kick a Real Coke habit...It is great for lunch, though!

  5. I have to keep my mini fridge stocked with REAL coke (cans only, please!) too!
    Saw your currently post! Don't you love them! I get a kick out of Farley's posts--but love her currently posts with all the link ups! I'm sure it's nice to already know some faces from "Meet the Teacher"---i've yet to see any of mine. Middle school is so different I guess! Oh well, cheers to a spectacular 1st Day on Tuesday! One more PD day! (hope i get all i need to do done before then!)

  6. I shared a mini-fridge with a fellow teacher but now I am at a different school. I didn't even think about getting a new one! PANIC!!! lol It is a must! Thanks for checking out our site and commenting on the flip books. I am so happy your school has them. They are super useful! :)

    Enjoy your last week off. I am working with my principals at my new schools this week, so it's B2S for me!


  7. I've heard SO much about the Easi-Speak! Really cute!! I'm new to blogging and am so glad I found yours. Check out my blog if you get a chance! :)

  8. Can NOT believe you are heading back in just a matter of hours! Whatever happened to school being September?! So very sorry! It just all went too fast! We have 3 weeks left-ugh I feel terrible just typing that! Have an extra Coke on me!

    We used to tape our kiddos reading into a tape player. How archaic! Technology is so cool!
    Best of luck Tuesday!
