Fabulous 400 Follower MEGA Giveaway!!! (and Weekly Homework!)


It's official - I have hit 400 Followers. Well, I haven't "hit" them because I do love them, but you know what I mean. Imagine the happy dance taking place RIGHT THIS SECOND! :) Remember Will & Carlton from Fresh Prince of Bel Air...yeah, I'm doing THAT dance!

Never in a thousand years did I think I would get to 400 when I started this little 'ole blog. I just wanted to part of this awesome blogging community, and collaborate & share with other teachers. WOW is a true understatement.

I know I've said it before, but I want to take the time to say a BIG THANK YOU to all of you out there that stop by, read my blog, leave comments, and share the love. You can't imagine how appreciative I am, or how much it means. ..

Okay, now I sound like I've won some kind of Academy Award. hahah.. Just wanted to make sure the THANK YOU came across clearly :)

Now, on to the GOOD STUFF... The Giveaway!! Wait... GiveawayS...Plural!  4 giveaways to celebrate 400!  Folks, it's just plain fabulous :)
 (Thank you to the 3AM Teacher for the Super Duper CUTE frames used in the pictures!)

Prize #1 is 25 Gift Card to your choice - Amazon, TpT, or Target... you know, my favorites :)  Plus, you can pick any THREE items from my TpT store. The Rafflecopter says any ONE item, but I wanted to give away more, so there :)

Prize #2 is a MEGA pack of 15 FABULOUS items from some of your favorite bloggers and TpT Sellers :)



Prize #3 is for your 3rd-5th teachers... just look at these two prizes! :)


And lastly, Prize #4 is for ALL grades... It includes FONTS (yes, FONTS!), a $5 Gift Card, a SUPER cute Memory Book, and Winner's Choice Prize :) Yay!


Thank you again to all the followers out there...new ones and the ones that have stuck with me from the beginning. You are truly the best & the world is better with you teaching in it!

Lastly, I have to give a BIG SHOUT OUT to the contributors to this giveaway...please take the time to visit their blogs & leave them some love :)

As always, thanks for stopping by & Happy Sunday!! :)

  29. I'm thrilled to be part of your giveaway! (And, bless you for grabbing the preview pic of my unit...life got away from me yesterday!)

    We have 25 days.... but the 25th day is a 1/2 day of outdoor games and awards. However, this means that I must finish report cards and clean, pack the room before that day! Lots to do in the next five weeks.

  30. We have 38 days left. Last summer my daughter had her tonsils out and since she was 19 it was really not much fun. My son had to have stitches in his hand and my mother-in-law broke her wrist. Oh and I was completing some continuing education units. So I would just like a quiet summer. Congrats on 400 followers!

We are so happy we just found out!
