Do you want teacher editions or student editions?  Any particular grade level? Any particular subject area?   I have some that I am planning to post this summer, but can look for you now if you can narrow it down a little.  Thanks!

hmmm...nothing in particular.  I am still in school but I am building my collection.  So I would say mostly teacher editions.  They also help with my school work when planning lessons.

I have some on my shelf you might be interested in. There are some good ones for science especially, but also a unit on families for upto about 2nd grade, I think, and some other stuff too. I do not have much time right now, but if you want to look over my shelf and ask questions about ones that sound of interest to you I'll gladly do my best to answer them. I also have a whole series on careers, but they are probably more middle school level. I am pretty sure I still have one with ideas for writing in math class too. Let me know what you see of interest! Have a blessed day! Dawn

I've got at a pile of teacher education textbooks & would LOVE to move them out.  Also lots of kids' books.  Take a look and make me an offer--the more you want, the better I'll make the deal.

I still have a few brand new hard cover books for elmentary reading on my shelf.  They were bought for me by a friend, but I have decided that I want to stay in middle school and not make the move to elementary quite yet.

If you want to check them out, they are on my bookshelf :)

I have Project Wild and Project Aquatic Wild on my shelf.  These textbook-sized books contain hundreds of science and conservation activities.  They would be good for someone just starting out in teaching since they can be used for all grade levels or for someone looking to enrich their science curriculum with hands-on lessons.

I just posted this on another thread:

Ah Summer! The time to relax, read books and swap, swap, swap.

After cleaning out the closet, I have the following books for classrooms you may be interested in

Wordly wise 3000 (I actually have 7 never used--only one listed.

Vocabulary Workshop LLevel Orange (sadler oxford ) Have the teachers ed. and two student books-one listed

Individual Inventory for Reading and Writing (has placement and diagnostic inventories to use)

Teachers make the difference (includes activities and forms for: Readiness/Kindergarten, Multiyear Learning, Extra Learning Time, Teaching across the curriculum, Behavior and discipline, Special needs, Assessment)

Hope this is helpful to someone else....
