Back in early August, I was contacted by a BIC representative to review some new products and I was happy to check them out. I've always loved school supplies. What teacher doesn't?Here are a few words from BIC:
Bic's main goal this year is to encourage students to write more often, because writing is by far one of the most important learning tools for a child's academic success in growth. As you know, writing fosters children's emotional and cognitive development, helps foster critical thinking skills and improves academic achievement.
To help achieve our goal, BIC has launches the "Fight for Your Write" campaign, which reinforces how fun and empowering writing can be. The campaign, which can be found at www.bicfightforyourwrite.com, offers information about writing and tips from literacy expert Pam Allyn to help parents, caregivers and students make a commitment to write more often.
From those words, I knew that I had to participate in their campaign!

As much as I love those, however, I was even more excited to check out their newest products geared towards little hands. Since I'll be teaching children with smaller hands again, I thought these tools would be perfect for my ESOL classroom. The Fight for Your Write website states that these pencils were developed with teachers and kids and have a unique yellow guiding line for proper finger position:
I've already spotted these gems in Staples and picked up extras. I know they will come in handy!
Here are a few of the other goodies in the product set:
Amazing items, huh? Wouldn't you like to get your hands on this awesomeness? Well, you can! They have allowed for me to give one of my readers the same BIC product set. Check out the rafflecopter and enter! The winner will be announced next Thursday! Good luck!
