Favorite Things Giveaway #2: Favorite Back to School Things!

I LOVE summertime and I would be perfectly happy if it were summer all year long, but I also LOVE seeing all the back to school items in the stores. There have been some great finds here lately and I've also seen lots of other great finds from everyone's instagrams. After several trips to Target, Hobby Lobby, Kohls, and my local teacher supply store, I have just about got my classroom complete. I've collected several of my favorite items and decided to give them away. That giveaway is on my new blog Life in Fifth Grade, so be sure and check it out and enter! Here's a sneak peek of what's included. 
Go enter here!

THIS giveaway is for one of my favorite books to read for back to school. I just love Curious George and he's always a hit in my classroom. When I taught first (that still sounds weird, being in past tense), I always had book characters in my independent reading center. The kids loved reading books to them, so this combo would work great! :)
