12 Days of Christmas Giveaway Day 7: 6th Grade

We still have the items available from yesterday’s giveaway-I haven’t received a comment from any Portsmouth K-2 teachers!

Today we have items for a 6th grade teacher that include two reader’s theater books, one Lewis and Clark reader, a desk size writeable map, and Taboo and matching cards.  (They correlate with last year’s standards, but most of them can still be used since 6th grade didn’t have that many changes.)  The first 6th grade Portsmouth teacher to comment will get these items!

Congratulations go Mrs. Ruben at John Tyler for winning yesterday’s 4th grade items.
