150 Follower Giveaway

So I woke up Tuesday morning with 151 Followers!  I couldn't believe it.
This is such a huge milestone for me. 2 days from Thanksgiving and it's just 1 more thing I can give thanks to the Lord for. I started blogging in March of this year, with the hopes of sharing ideas and units I use in my classroom. I didn't realize how much I would learn and grow as a mom and as a teacher. My kids (the pink and blue butterfly up in my header) are the reason I do what I do. I work to give them everything they need. I am so blessed to have a job, where I can take my kids with me. I am so blessed to work in a school that is close to home, and be with my kids even though I'm teaching. This blog (and my units) also wouldn't be possible if it weren't for my amazingly talented husband.
He showed me the technical stuff--as he knows all things when it comes to web design and pdf's. 
I love you hun!
Now to the Giveaway.....Drum Roll Please

I emailed some blogging "mentors" so to speak and asked if they would help me celebrate or be able to donate something to this giveaway.

  21. I love to play our reading story of the week on cd and give children large story paper and they illustrate as they listen and then write. All children are such better writers when it's connected to our story or something we are learning about.

  22. I've had my students write about winter holidays celebrated around the world. Each day we learn about a new country and write about what we learned in our journals.


  23. Congrats! I like my class to draw and write snow globe stories.

  24. I love having the kids write about How to Build a Snowman. I think I'm going to add one about How to Make Hot Chocolate this year, too. I've also seen an idea on Pinterest about If I Lived in a Snowglobe...

  25. I love having the students write about how to make hot chocolate. I even do a craft with it.
