    Wouldn’t it be so cool to surprise your whole class with #TeamOctopus t-shirts?

    To be entered in the giveaway simply post four topics and/or comments in this #TeamOctopus forum, with at least two of those being in response to others.
    Then after you’ve done that, reply to this topic with your name, grade you teach, location, and your twitter handle (or your preferred way of contacting you if you win.)

    The deadline will be September 1st, and the shirts should be ready to be delivered by late September.

    (Oh, and not only does this giveaway also include a copy of the book, but CLEARLY it needs to include a class set of #TeamOctopus stickers, too, right? You just have to have each student promise to use the sticker as a reminder of their own inner strength!)

      I love the idea of leadership being a topic. This is a skill that is often overlooked in MG, other than for those kids who naturally gravitate towards student council, etc.

    Topics: Inner strength, Identity, Perspective of others, why kindness & empathy are vital in our world. I noticed that someone shared leadership as a topic. I think I would add to that the importance of stepping outside your comfort zone as a discussion topic and ask what the benefits would be to that as well.

    I teach 3rd grade, but I also facilitate the Project Lit group for our 4th & 5th graders. They would be over the moon if we won this giveaway. Thank you so much for the opportunity.

      Identity is a big topic for my MG students. Often the library is the only space they feel safe exploring this topic. It’s why I love books like Octopus, Cactus, and George.

    Topic: Kids with same gender parents. Not seeing much of this in MG? Or if they are there, they seem to be minor characters.
