100 Followers Giveaway!

I've reached 100 followers!

First of all, thank you to all my amazing followers and all the wonderful teacher-bloggers out there! When I began discovering and reading teacher blogs about 7 months ago, and when I decided to start one myself in January, I was in a bit of a rut/funk as far as teaching went. 8 years of teaching and I felt like I wasn't doing anything different or exciting anymore. Now, after reading blogs and learning and gleaning so much from all of you, I am newly energized and excited about teaching again! I would have never thought this experience would have been so valuable to me (nor would I have thought there would be 100 of you who would want to read my ramblings!).

To say thank you, I am having a 100 followers giveaway!
(The wonderful frame for this graphic is from The 3am Teacher.)

One lucky winner will receive:
-$20 gift certificate to your choice of either, Target, or Teachers Pay Teachers
-a t-shirt from the wonderful Hey Girl Teacher (t-shirt examples can be found here)
-my bundle of Health & Nutrition themed math and literacy activities (my most popular item on my TPT store, which will be prettied up and slightly edited soon for this giveaway)

Enter using the Rafflecopter below - yes, there are quite a few ways to enter - I figured, why not? ;)

  4. Hey Kara, thanks so much for stopping by my blog and replying to my post! Chip clips...what a great idea! For the past two years I have been teaching a mix of MSD and MMD in a resource room, but I am excited (and a little nervous) to be moving totally to MSD next year. I'll definitely blog-stalking heavily this summer to get some good ideas. One fun thing I'm doing is changing up my classroom theme and DIYing lots of sensory items this summer...I'll be posting about them :) Thanks again for the comment...
