Stella Writes is Moving to Scholastic! Plus a Stella Giveaway!

Hello Friends,
     I have wonderful news!  So wonderful, I made a little video to announce it!  I hope you'll check it out! (See it HERE!) 
Stella Writes is moving to Scholastic!  Plus, a Stella Writes giveaway!
     Since SDE has chosen to limit the professional books publication side of their business, Stella Writes had to find a new home.  I'm so grateful to my amazing friends at SDE for their hard work and support of the Stella series.  Their faith in the possibilities for these little books means so much.  We all feel Scholastic will be the perfect new home for Stella!
      As I share in the video, you may have noticed the new set is in the most recent Scholastic Resource catalogue, or perhaps you've even seen it on Amazon for pre-order (the books are due by mid-June).  I looked yesterday and saw that the series is the Number One New Release in Elementary Education!  
Stella Writes is moving to Scholastic!  Plus, a Stella Writes giveaway!

     Scholastic and I are teaming up for a Happy Teacher Appreciation Week Stella Writes Giveaway!  We are giving away 5 sets of the new books (to be delivered when they come out in June).  If you'd like to enter to win, just leave a comment on this blog post and I'll add your name to the list.  Winners will be announced next Sunday, May 13.
     I'm thrilled about this new partnership with Scholastic.  We'll have a Stella Writes website with teacher resources and videos, plus I've written a new teachers' guide for the four book set.  We're hoping to introduce Stella to many more teachers and students around the globe!

    1. Hi Lynn,
      These are definitely student favorites (and teacher favorites, too!). Many teachers like to begin their units of study with the appropriate title in the series. I like to use them this way and as a constant reference as we work through pieces. There's plenty to learn from Stella, her classmates, and Ms. Merkley!
      Thanks for stopping by!
