Fresh New Look, The bears are back & A Giveaway!

Hello all! First of, I'd like to thank Megan from A Bird in Hand Designs. She did an awesome job on refreshing the look of this blog! After all e-mails I've sent her I think I drove her crazy haha. Honestly, if you are looking for a new look for your blog there are two options you can choose from at her blog. I wanted a fresh new look which could incorporate my new ideas and resources at ESL World just as well as ideas from the Sea of Knowledge. I think it looks great. What do you all think?? Would love to hear your opinions. :) My sister is currently working on a new website for the Sea of Knowledge which will be here in the next few months hopefully. I'm very excited about that, I've never had my own domain before, I have ABSOLUTELY no clue what goes on in it...on second thought I'm a little nervous about that lol!

I have learned a lot of new tech stuff in the past few months of clicking, undoing, clicking, and then undoing again lol. I will share some of that knowledge with you all as I know how overwhelmed I was when I first started. There are some great tutorials out there for bloggers and all but not too many specific to teaching stuff (this includes apps, iPad etc).

Anyway, enough rambling! Onto some updates. The bears are back! I'm currently working on completing a large Number Bears Unit - the first unit will be only based on  mathematical concepts for beginning skills. I created a freebie a century ago if you remember titled "Number Bears" and I received a million (well not really a million, but I like exaggerating =P) requests to add numbers and activities to the pack. Well It will be here soon!

If you'd like a chance to win this 96-page unit, please comment on this blog post with your name and e-mail and pin one of the images below! :)

Here's what it'll include:

I've also included recording pages and practice pages for those intervention learners / ELL/ESL learners, they are designed in an easier format to allow these students to learn the skills but at a slower pace. 

Some more practice printables included for further practice / assessment:

I would LOVE to giveaway this pack to two awesome bloggy teacher friends! Just leave a comment below and pin one of the images above and I will choose a winner once I'm ready to upload it, which will be in the next two days (hopefully) :)
