"Don't Drink The Pink" Book and Giveaway

It's been awhile, but I'm ready for a GIVEAWAY! How about you? Who would like to win a children's book that is perfect for a parent to read as a bedtime story to their child or for a classroom? I'm always thrilled when Arielle at TaleBlade Press asks if I am interested in doing a book giveaway, especially when it is by B.C.R. Fegan!


 Don't Drink The Pink by B.C.R. Fegan book review and giveaway


This book is called "Don't Drink The Pink" by B.C.R. Fegan and illustrated by Lenny Wen. In this story, Grandpa and Madeline share a special bond. Each birthday her Grandfather gives her a magical birthday experience that she will never forget. He always makes sure that she knows not to drink the pink. What will happen if she drinks the pink? You will have to read this fun story filled with imagination to find out! 

"Don't Drink The Pink" also helps children learn phonemic awareness skills like rhyming and oral language, as well as colors, ordinal numbers, and what happens as one gets older. I love that the colors and ordinal numbers are in bold faced print so you could even use those to practice reading as sight words. The beautiful illustrations by Lenny Wen help bring the story to life!

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give a book to one lucky reader thanks to Arielle at TaleBlade Press. This giveaway will start on Saturday, June 22nd, 2019 and end at 11:59pm on Wednesday. Enter below using Rafflecopter. By sharing the giveaway you can come back and enter daily. Click on the above picture if you would like to purchase the book. You will have 48 hours to respond to my email with your mailing address so I can send it to the publisher or I will select another winner.

Tutoring Tuesdays - May 21st, 2019

Happy Tuesday! The past couple of weeks, I didn't get to today as they were canceled, but I finally got to tutor last week. Sadly, it was my last tutoring session with this absolutely incredible third grader who I have tutored since the 3rd nine weeks of her Kindergarten year. The family made me feel like home. Her parents are absolutely incredible wonderful people. They told me if she gets stuck on a skill next school year they will give me a call to help her with that skill. The doctor told them it is best for her not to tutor weekly as then she will think she's not good at Math and it would hurt her confidence. 

On the last tutoring session we continued to work on long division with 2 digits by using my Camera 2 Digit Long Division Task Cards. She also checked it with multiplication. There are 24 task cards in color and black and white plus an answer key and recording sheet. She still made some careless mistakes, but she is very capable of doing this tough 5th grade skill.

I do not plan to take on any new tutoring students. I am on the hunt for an office job. I will come up with a new series of blog posts soon to showcase my resources!

Tutoring Tuesdays - May 1st, 2019

Happy Tuesday! Wow, it is already May! Time is flying by fast! Hang on teachers you'll be off for the summer soon, especially those of you who started in July and August!

Last year, I started working with the 3rd grader on factors using my Factors Task Cards. She found the factors and put them in order. She did quite a good job other than one of the higher numbers. I taught her if it is even you can always divide by 2. These come with 24 task cards in black and white only, a recording sheet, an answer key, and suggestions on using them. We played a game with them that you can see below. The game board does not come with these cards. In this game if you land on the rainbow poop you go back to start, but if you land on the unicorn you get to go again.

Next, we worked on more long division by 2 digits working on my Chicks 2 Digit Long Division Task Cards. We only got to do a couple as she had a hard time on the first problem due to focusing and making a lot of careless mistakes. I plan to keep working with her on this skill next week. She can absolutely do it as she flew through the 2nd problem pretty easily and I've seen her do it in the past! This is a 5th grade skill, this 3rd grader is doing! There are 24 task cards in color and black and white. It includes a recording sheet and answer key.

Tutoring Tuesdays - April 23rd, 2019

Happy Tuesday! It's been awhile since I've been able to tutor due to the last couple being canceled, but I finally got to tutor last Wednesday, the amazing 3rd grader! I hope each of you had a wonderful Easter!

Last week we continued working on 2 digit long division by 4 digit using my Easter 2 Digit Long Division With Remainders Task Cards. She did a great job on the division with some careless mistakes on the multiplication to check it. I see a lot of her in me as I made all kinds of careless mistakes in elementary school. Part of that was due to me going too fast. She doesn't fly through the work the way that I used to, thankfully! There are 24 task cards in color and black and white. I have included a recording sheet and answer key. If children write small enough they can write on the cards if laminated or put in plastic sleeves. Otherwise, use a white board for fun!

I have also included a recording sheet and answer key!

Tutoring Tuesdays - March 19th, 2019

Happy Tuesday! In 2 more days, I will be the big 40 years old!!! Before, I get to tutoring, I am doing a very special deal for my birthday and beyond!

My sweet little Shih Tzu wound up at the Animal Hospital after making continuous noises a week ago last Friday. She wound up passing away twice as they were doing xrays and they brought her back to life twice with CPR. She wound up needing oxygen and has been there quite a bit since then. She is home with me now! I have created a Go Fund Me page to help with these crazy vet bills. If you would like to donate, I will send you TRIPLE that amount in teaching resources. All you have to do is email me at tigermagic@bellsouth.net the products you want and I will get them to you in 24 hours or less. Usually quite quickly unless I'm sleeping! So if you donate $5, you'll get $15 worth of things in my store! $10 you'd get $50! $1, you'd get $3! This is far better deal than any site wide sale and you'll be helping me with my dog! Click the picture to check out my Go Fund Me, see the vet bills, and read the updates! If you can't donate, please share with your pet and animal friends! This is why the past two weeks I've posted covers, rather than in action, but I may change them out when I have time.

We started tutoring working on equivalent fractions using my Equivalent Fractions Task Cards! There are 24 cards, a recording sheet, and a sample answer key (there are too many possible answers). These are in black and white. She did a great job!

We finished tutoring working on more 4 digit by 2 digit long division task cards using my 2 Digit Long Division St. Patrick's Day Bugs Task Cards. These come in color and black and white and includes a recording sheet and answer key! She had some difficulty mostly with putting the numbers on top after figuring out how many. We will keep working on this one. She will get it! She's only in 3rd grade yet doing 5th grade math!

Tutoring Tuesdays - March 12th, 2019

Happy Tuesday! In about a week it will finally be spring! I hope those of you on daylight saving time are enjoying the extra daylight! This week I am just showing cover pages due to time.

Last week in tutoring, I helped the 3rd grader first with practicing multiplying 3 digits by 2 digits using my Sloths 3 Digits by 2 Digits Multiplication Task Cards. Yes, 3rd grade can you believe that? She did a pretty good job with it. There are 24 task cards in color and black and white, a recording sheet, and an answer key!

Sloths 3 Digit by 2 Digit Multiplication Task Cards

Next we worked a little more on equivalent fractions using my Clip It Equivalent Fractions. She did a little better than the previous week. She seemed to be starting to grasp how to find an equivalent fraction. I will keep working with her on this skill. There are 24 task cards in black and white, a recording sheet, and answer key.

We finished tutoring working on 2 digit long division using my Flamingos 2 Digit Long Division Task Cards. She had to divide 4 digits by 2 digits. She also checked her answers with multiplication. She did much better multiplying this time and did excellent dividing. She said she wasn't sure how to add the remainders so I showed her that and then she did terrific! These also come with 24 task cards in color and black and white. A recording sheet and answer key are also included.

Tutoring Tuesdays - March 5th, 2019

Happy Tuesday! I didn't tutor a couple of weeks ago due to the child having cheerleading clinic at her school. So I was back to tutoring last Wednesday. Wait until you see what she was learning in the 3rd grade!

When I got there she first showed me what she was just taught and that was long division dividing 4 digits by 2 digits. Example 6045\20. I can't type the long division on here, but you get the picture. That's a 5th grade skill. 

Well, I worked with her on a 6th grade skill. She was learning the mean of 3 digit and 5 digit numbers in school. They simply call it averaging, but it is the same thing. It is amazing to me how much advanced they are in private school than in public school. She doesn't do the Common Core craziness so I think it makes it easier for her. We worked on my Finding the Mean Task Cards. In the example, you see I wrote average on each card. The same set of cards with the word mean are also included! She miss added on a couple, but her long division was fantastic!

Next we worked on equivalent fractions using my Clip It Equivalent Fractions. She struggled some on that and part of the reason is that she was never taught how to reduce fractions so I plan to keep working with her on that. There are 24 task card, a recording sheet, and answer key.

Tutoring Tuesdays - February 19th, 2019

Happy Tuesday! No tutoring the week before due to the family being sick so that is why there was no blog post. I was back to tutoring last Wednesday though! I hope each of you had a great Valentine's Day! Valentine's Day is over, but your students still make like these fun themes and kids love hearts anyway!

We started off tutoring working on finding the whole number with a reminder of a fraction using my Fractions of a Whole Number with Remainders. These in black and white and come with a recording sheet and answer key so you can use them as you wish! After missing one she did an excellent job and didn't miss any more!

We then worked on finding the missing factor in multiplication equations using my Valentine's Day Llamas Missing Number Equations. These are in color only and come with a recording sheet, answer key, and an optional game board. Land on a Llama and the student gets to go again! She didn't miss any!

We finished tutoring working on adding and subtracting 3 fractions with like denominators using my Valentine Superheroes Adding and Subtracting Fractions Task Cards. She did an incredible job soaring through these!

We also worked on a couple of partial multiplication and addition charts that she was able to do in less than 3 minutes.

Next we worked on adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators. Yes she is a 3rd grader! We used my Adding and Subtracting Fractions Task Cards. There are 24 task cards in color only, but they easily print in grey scale as you can see below. I have included a recording sheet and answer key.

Fractions Adding and Subtracting with Like Denominators Task Cards

We finished tutoring doing a few problems on converting and adding or subtracting cups and pints where she had to change the cups to pints or the pints to cups. We used my Adding and Subtracting Cups and Pints Task Cards. I will admit it yes right here on my blog that I am human and I had the conversions mixed up. She drew a diagram to prove to me she was correct! I realized I had switched them and it showed me that she truly knew understood the skill since she was able to teach me! I was so proud of her. The answer key has been corrected as I had 2 proofreaders so no worries there. There is a recording sheet and answer key.

Happy Tuesday! Those of you in the United States and most of the world are back to teaching your incredible students. I believe Australia starts back soon. I wish you all a great rest of the school year! I started back tutoring last Wednesday.

I spent most of tutoring with the 3rd grader working on adding and subtracting gallons and quarts using my Adding and Subtracting Quarts and Gallons Task Cards.
