Freebies and Prizes

You Are Appreciated!
It's Teacher Appreciation Week and  I want to say thank you to everyone who visits my blog. To show my appreciation to everyone and reaching 100 followers, I am having a giveaway. If you have not signed up for the Thirty-One Tote Bag giveaway, What are you waiting for! You get to pick your color and monogram exactly like you want it. Just go to the previous post and sign up before midnight on May 9.

Some of the newbies like me are overjoyed to have 100 followers.  There are people with hundreds, even thousands of followers, but we must all give ourselves a pat on the back for each small step or accomplishment we make.  A month ago, I didn't have a blog, a Facebook fan Page, or a TPT store. I don't even know anyone who blogs. No one at my school blogs.  And to top it off most of you are my kids age. I was inspired by you, the talented teachers that have been doing this much longer and much better than me.  I have been reading and learning about all this blogging technology along the way and making lots of mistakes. Luckily we learn from our mistakes.

There are so many wonderful blogs and fantastic ideas to be found on your blogs. Thank you for sharing your ideas, pictures, advice, and talents.  I have learned so much from the hours I spend reading what you have all shared.  It is so fun peeking into classrooms around the world and borrowing a trick or two that  works for you.  I think it helps us all grow professionally.

I would also like to show my support and give encouragement to others who may want to bring some new followers and friends to their blog.  I will be posting a list of blogs each day that just may be looking for a few new friends.  If you would like me to mention your blog, 
just shoot me an email or leave me a comment below.

To show my appreciation, I will be giving away a little FREEBIE each day through May 10, when the winner of the Thirty-One Tote and Thermal bag will be announced.
Here is an Ocean Word Sort for Nouns, Verbs, and Adjectives. 
 The words are differentiated to use in  K-2 classrooms. 

After that it is going into my TPT Store.

Thanks for all of your support!
