Would you love to win 7 great spring resources? #KinderFriends Giveaway

Would you like to win some spring resources?  If you teach, the answer is most likely a resounding yes!  Who doesn't want awesome classroom resources?!  I know my students were always thrilled when I pulled out something "new" - even if it was just new to them. This month the #KinderFriends are getting together to giveaway 7 resources to make spring lesson planning just a little easier for one lucky teacher.

I'll be sending the winner my best selling spring resource:
https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Spring-Tangrams-2472112

Have you done tangrams with your students yet?  I like to introduce tangrams with the story:
https://www.amazon.com/Tangram-Magician-Lisa-Campbell-Ernst/dp/1593541066
In this gem of a book, a magician uses the 7 pieces of a tangram to become all manner of things, from a cat to a rooster to a tea set, showcasing just a few of the possibilities tangrams hold.  I've written before about how I use tangrams for Chinese New Year, but my students love them so much, I like to make them available throughout the year.  In my spring set you'll find both black lines (so you can see the answers, and younger students can match the shapes), and colorful outlines to challenge children and adults alike.


I can't decide if my favorite is the snail or the bunny!

Tangrams are so open ended, I love using them for morning work and early finishers.   How would you use these in your classroom?

Enter for your chance to win below!
