GIVEAWAY!: Alison's Montessori Lowercase Print Tracing Board



UPDATE (12/13/11): The winner of the giveaway is commenter #61, My Spot!

Here is another great December giveaway from Alison's Montessori! These are the lowercase print tracing boards!

Here is the description from their website:

A great transition from the sandpaper letter to writing, children can trace these carved wooden boards with their fingers or with the spindle. Each set includes twenty-six lowercase letters in a wooden storage box, a wooden working board, and a plastic spindle. A dot on the lower right corner of each plate denotes right side up. Letters can also be used as tiles for word exercises.

These might prove to be a great material for kids who have trouble transitioning from the sandpaper letters to paper as Kal-El did.

HOW TO WIN IT:

This giveaway is open to US and Canada residents, 18 and older. Alison's Montessori is responsible for shipping the product to you. You can earn multiple entries! The first and MANDATORY entry is to leave a comment here on this blog post and tell us what material you have been procrastinating on making yourself that you would love to procure from Alison's instead. Check back at here at What DID We Do all Day to find out who the winner is on Tuesday, December 13th. I will, as a courtesy, also try to e-mail you. Make sure there is some way for me to e-mail you! If I can't find your e-mail by clicking through to your profile, make sure you write it out in your comment.

Optional/Additional entries:

  • "Like" Alison's Montessori on Facebook and leave me a comment on this post letting me know that you have .

I don't belong to anything fancy like Rafflecopter yet (it is apparently by invitation) so I will use a random number generator to determine the winner.
