Blogging has been a blessing in my life - I love the interaction with other teachers and the reflecting that I do as I sit down to post. My husband doesn't have to hear hours of endless stories because I have a new outlet for them - you! I think blogging has helped keep me excited about teaching every day - and its made me a better teacher because I am more thoughtful of HOW I teach now, simply because I know I'm going to share it with my readers.
If you've bought something from me on TPT I'm doubly thankful for you. TPT is an awesome resource! Not only is it a place I can go to grab something for a lesson or unit, thus saving myself time and effort, but it has also become a place where I can share my own creations and get valuable feedback. As an Army wife and mother of 4, sometimes a teacher's salary and soldier's paycheck doesn't stretch quite far enough. My TPT income has been a blessing that way - it has provided my 4 children with back to school clothes and supplies and also allowed me to keep providing things for my classroom which our school doesn't cover (paper, play dough, stickers, markers, crayons, paint etc etc) not to mention helped pay for all of the clipart I use on my items!
I was talking with my friend Kaci over at Mrs. Hoffer's Spot (another thing blogging has provided - great new friends!) about how thankful we both are for this part of our lives. We came up with the idea to do a Thankful Giveaway! We are each giving away a $25 TPT gift card! You can enter via the rafflecopter below.
Since this kind of giveaway only rewards a few, I'm also taking part in the Cyber Monday sale at TPT!
Thanks to The 3am Teacher for the cute button! Be sure to head over to her blog to link up!
My Winter Ten Frames pack is chock full of ten frames from 0-20! There are 3 different styles, in both poster size for display on a math wall and card sized for math center fun!
I've also got some fun Penguin and Snowmen Roll & Cover and Roll & Graph Acitivties:
And of course, my huge Gingerbread Skills unit, chock full of ELA and Math acitivites!
Click below to go to the linky for other stores involved in the sale - I know I'm going to be filling my shopping cart this weekend!
Now, onto the best part - the chance to win TPT gift certificates - and we promise to get them to you in time to use during the Cyber Monday and Tuesday sale! Good luck and thank you for following!
