I’m excited to announce that free downloadable curriculum guides are now available for THE BOY PROJECT (Scholastic 2012) and THE BOY PROBLEM (Scholastic 2014)! Both books have themes that tie in with today’s middle school curriculum and both are common core aligned. The guides are full of fantastic reading, math, and science activities that can be used alone or separately. I feel like I can brag about I didn’t create them myself. 🙂 The talented Marcie Colleen created the guide for THE BOY PROJECT (click HERE to view) and the great teachers at EDUCATORS R&R created the guide for THE BOY PROBLEM (Click HERE to view). These guides are also available at all times on my website http://www.kamikinard.com. To celebrate the completion of these guides I am giving away five classroom reading packs that go along with the themes from THE BOY PROBLEM. These can be used for reading circles, book clubs, or any of readers who enjoy these books! Each kit includes a heart-shaped box and seven:
- cupcake containers with a dove chocolate heart
- cupcake tattoos
- signed bookmarks
- cupcake erasers (scroll down to see a cute video featuring these)
- hairy mustaches
- fortune telling fish
- and one top to create your own shoe box lid predictor as seen on page 185
- Winners will also receive a free 20 minute Skype visit for your class or for a small group.
(Pssst: If you win and need more than seven of the items above let me know and I’ll see what I can do!)

Good Luck Everyone! And if you want a closer look at the erasers that come with the prize pack, check out what Mr. Etkin’s class did with them last year. Bet you didn’t know erasers could dance!
So Fabulous Kami!
It’s times like these that I wish I was back, teaching in that middle school classroom. (Thankfully, it passes! 🙂 )
What a great curriculum tie-in pack, Kami! Teachers and kids’ll love ’em. (The books are pretty swell, too!)
Thanks so much Cathy! I was really happy with the guides and amazed that the creators found amazing new ways to enhance comprehension. Talented people. If you have any friends still in the trenches, please share!
Wow, Kami! You are so generous. I must read your two books, The Boy Project and The Boy Problem. The reviews are enticing me. The curriculum guides sound outstanding, especially since they are common core aligned. Thank you for writing for middle schoolers who sometimes can be reluctant readers. ~Suzy Leopold
Thanks Suzy! Writing for middle schoolers is fun! So are the curriculum guides. Again, I can say this because I didn’t design them. 😉
Well, the curriculum guides would not have been designed if you had not authored the books: The Boy Project and The Boy Problem, Kami. 😊
Love that video, Kami, and passed this on to my daughter-in-law teacher and her Principal mother 😀
Thanks Donna! I appreciate your sharing the word!
