Home Team Advantage Pack Giveaway!

Ready for another cool giveaway? You're going to like this one. It's a Home Team Advantage Goal Achievement Pack from ETA Hand2Mind.
It's a nifty nylon backpack filled with these goodies:

3 books—
  -Color My World
  -The Dragon Family
  -The Volcano Project

1 My Writing Journal

3 VersaTiles® Activity Books:
   -Reading Fun with Phonics
   -Math Using Numbers
   -Science Life Science
   -1 VersaTiles Answer Case

1 Math Activities with Dominoes book
1 Set of Double-Sixes Dominoes
1 Pop for Sight Words™ Game

1 Game Plan Guide

The idea is that you can send this home and enable parents to work effectively with their child to boost their classroom achievement. I love all the hands-on and game based options. A great pacing guide is included to help parents see how to use these materials to their maximum benefit in just 30 minutes a day. Of course, the materials in this kit would make great classroom resources as well. I especially LOVE the Versatiles.

I have a set of Versatiles that is about 20 years old. I've always loved the concept of them, but I was never crazy about the student work book. In my opinion, they were a bit confusing. They have really updated the books and they are just fantastic! You can see the difference in these pictures below. The new books are the larger ones with one activity per page and the new Versatiles set is black. They still function the same, they just got a nice little upgrade. My kids are really digging them!


This is a fantastic set of materials that makes it easy for a parent to work with their child. Imagine having this to offer to some of the amazing parents who sincerely ask how they can help at home. Rotate the bag around your class so several students can benefit from it. Funding for several sets might make a good grant or Donor's Choose project.  Enter to win one below to try them out!

  2. Looks like a great pack - I love the Versatiles. As a kid I had a similar product called "Think it Through Tiles' made by discovery toys. I wish I had kept the set together to use in my classroom - my mom had all the books that went with it.
