Day 4 Giveaways! Stop in and Celebrate with Me!

Good Morning Friends!
I have some AWESOME news!
The winner of yesterday's prize pack was...... 
Sarah Jacobson!
Congratulations Sarah!  
Day 4 Celebrations starting now!  
I have two very special treats for you today!
The first sweetie pie is Mrs. Katie author of Teacher to the Core.
She is an outstanding teacher and I love the feeling I get when I leave her blog with a notepad filled with new ideas!
   And speaking of her blog, isn't it absolutely adorable?!  I think Mrs. Katie did that on purpose so we will stalk her blog all the time!!!  GUILTY!  
Katie's sense of humor and down-to-Earth goodness is why I just adore her!  Thank you so much Katie for celebrating with me today!

My second sweet surprise is this fabulous duo!  How cool is it that they work together, blog together, and TPT together?!

Christy and Tammy are amazing.  I remember feeling so incredibly special when I saw their button suddenly appear in my followers section.  In the short year we have known each other,  the girls and I have shared a ton of funny emails and my terrible sense of humor!  Christy and Tammy have been so generous to me and today I want to thank both of them, so very much, for being two of the most creative and thoughtful teachers I know!  Thanks ladies!  xoxoxo

So what are you waiting for?
Get to that rafflecopter and have fun!
Happy Thursday my sweet friends!


  1. I love starting the day with a story!

  2. I love going over our Whole Brain Teaching rules every morning. The students really get into saying them and it sets the tone for our whole day!

  3. What a great giveaway this has been! My favorite daily routine is my morning coffee. :) Having it right now!
    Hugs my friend!

  6. I like my opening. I read a story and then we do all sorts of calendar activities with the promethean board. The kids love it!

  7. like greeting my students at the coat closets before they enter the classroom.

  8. I love our morning work routine. My students know what is expected and it is a great way to start our day.

  9. I really enjoy our morning routine too! My firsties know exactly what's expected of them and they are on task so I can get the morning "things" done. Then it makes a nice transition into journal time!

  11. I actually love my small groups because it allows me to work closely with my little nuggets! thanks!

  12. I love our read aloud time...many of my students don't get read to, so I am their only source.
