Day 1 of Giveaways! Don't Miss Your Chance to Enter and Win!

I am so honored to have you here today to celebrate my first anniversary of blogging bliss!
One year ago today, 
I anxiously pressed that bright orange "publish" button and sent my first post out into cyberspace.
Much to my delight,
comments began to appear,
and new friendships started to bloom.
On my anniversary, I am thinking of how lucky I am to have so many new and amazing friends because of this fabulous thing we call "blogging."
Today is my day to say thank you,
to YOU,
my dear friends,
for following my teaching blog and making me a better teacher!

I have a few friends in particular that offered to help me celebrate my blogiversary with a special little giveaway each day this week!
One such special friend is my sweet girl
Kelly over at First Grade Fairytales.  
Kelly and I are both night owls,
loving all things first grade,
and most of all, we have become great blogging besties!
Her comments and emails are sunshine to my day and I just adore her!
Kelly, thank you for being a beautiful friend!
Kelly is letting the winner of today's giveaway go "shopping" for two new TPT items from her store!  WOO HOO!

Another sweet ray of sunshine is the little Miss Krystyn over at Ms. Richard's Musings.  Krystyn is so thoughtful and her sweet comments and emails always give me that extra PEP in my STEP!
Thank you Krystyn for helping me celebrate and sharing this special week of friendship with me!
Today's winner will get to shop for one fabulous item in Krystyn's TPT store!  Oh Yeah!

How adorable is my girl  Emily over at Curious Firsties!  You will leave her blog with some fantastic first grade ideas every time you visit!  She is a gem and I am so grateful to have her celebrating with me!  Today's winner can zoom on over to TPT store and pick up your favorite product!  How awesome is that!?!

Check back every day this week for more chances to win some incredibly fabulous products by some of your favorite teachers!
Happy Anniversary to me!!!
