My Book of Beautiful Oops! and a Giveaway

Hi everyone! I have a really great opportunity to partner up with with Workman Publishing to share a great book and giveaway! My Beautiful Book of Oops! is a hands-on journal that's designed for little ones to turn an "oops" or mistake into art. It encourages creativity and imagination in young children. The pages of the book have smudges, spills, bends, folds, splats, and much more! Children are encouraged to turn these "oops"or little mistakes into works of art!

As primary teachers, our students are going to make mistakes....a lot of mistakes! Unfortunately, children often have a negative opinion about making mistakes. One lesson I try to teach my children is, mistakes are how we learn and they are completely OK! One of my favorite classroom sayings (I even made it into a poster) is, "Mistakes are proof that you are tying!" I absolutely love that in 
My Beautiful Book of Oops!  mistakes are not only encouraged, but viewed as a place for creativity to begin! I love that students can view a mistake or an "oops" as something positive that can be a work of art!

Check out some of the pages below to see some of the possibilities!

With back to school almost around the corner, this book would be a great lesson for the first week of school! It's a great way to show students the beauty of making mistakes. It would make a great teacher read aloud. After, you could invite students to add to the story during a guided lesson. Or add it to your classroom library and let students get creative independently! I think I am going to add it to my first week center rotations, that way only a small number of students can add to it at a time. The possibilities are endless! 

If you'd like to win a copy of your own, hop over to my Instagram by clicking here to enter the giveaway! Hurry because the giveaway ends Friday at 9:00 PM EST! While you're waiting to find out if your a winner, check out more about the book by clicking here.

Happy Teaching!
