The first is from my bloggy buddy Allie, aka The Gypsy Teacher! A while back she had a Pay It Forward post that I commented on. Well this week I got my gift package from her - it came with the sweetest note and all of this:
3 bottles of hand sanitizer, with the little rubber thingy so I can actually clip it to my purse and not lose it - love! A scented candle, cute gloves, turkey tissues and sugar-free candies! do I feel loved or what? I am beyond pleased and so grateful to Allie - she made my day! Please go check out her blog and leave her some love too - she has some great ideas and the cutest hair clips in her Etsy store!
Next up, I came home on Friday to find a box from Oriental Trading on my front porch. Only, I hadn't ordered anything from OT in a while. Imagine my surprise to open it and find all these goodies:
Star Student pencils, stickers, hall passes, book marks and certificates!
Rainbow colored baskets and large book holders!
I got these gifts as part of their blogger program! Now let me just add the disclaimer that, if I didn't truly like Oriental Trading and their products, I wouldn't be promoting them - regardless of what they sent me! But, I have shopped at OT before and I love their stuff! Each time I've ordered my purchases arrive quickly, accurately and well packaged. I even have a few things in my shopping cart for our next PTA carnival :)
OT also sent me a gift card that I can giveaway! How cool is that?! One lucky winner will receive this $25 Oriental Trading gift card - just in time to buy some cute holiday stocking stuffers! Use the rafflecopter form below to enter :)
In the midst of all this excitement, I have managed to do a little bit of work as well. I finished up my "Turkey Time! A Thanksgiving themed Common Core Aligned Measurement Pack!" that I am just in love with! It covers measuring height and width, time to the hour and half hour, graduated order, tally marks and graphing!
I also made a Thanksgiving Roll & Cover Addition and Subtraction games set - my students love these!
And, a Christmas Ten Frames pack!
Next up on my to-do list is a Winter themed Ten Frames pack for January! I am thinking along the lines of penguins, snowmen and polar bears. Any other Winter themes I should include? Also, I'm having a flash giveaway on my Facebook page today - just hop over and leave a comment under this post and you could win my turkey time pack!
