Giveaway, New Product, and a Freebie!!!

 It is so hard to believe that New Year's Eve is tomorrow!! I spent my first week of vacation being sick. It all began Christmas Eve with the stomach flu and has turned into a head and chest cold. So my Christmas was not so merry. I am hoping that week 2 of vacation is a little kinder to me.

I am super excited to hold my first give away!! Wouldn't it be great to start the new year off with a brand new pencil sharpener?? Well, thanks to Troy from Classroom Friendly Supplies,  one lucky person will win one of his amazing sharpeners!!! If you haven't checked out his pencil sharpener yet then click the link below...



The GIVEAWAY will end on Monday, January 7th. The winner will be notified by email. 
Good luck!!




I have tried to do a little school work while I have been sick. I just posted a fun New Year's writing/art project. Check it out! 


Of course I couldn't forget to include a freebie for the New Year as well. 

Click on picture for freebie! 


I hope you enjoy!!

  1. I won't be going back into the classroom as I don't have my own, but at this time in the year, I'd love to do some sort of "resolution" or "looking ahead" activity with my students! Thanks for the chance :)

  22. Our 100th day of school is in 10 short days! That will be a lot of fun to plan for and to orchestrate! That, getting the rest of my kiddos reading, and addition and subtraction will be occupying all of our time for the next 2-3 months.

  33. We are doing a unit using different versions of "The Mitten". I love that story! One activity ties in our current lessons on estimating, by having the students estimate how many snowballs (marshmallows)will fit in an outline of their mitten. Of course, they will have to find the actual number, too, and have a few extras on hand! :)
