Another Milestone Already!

I can't believe I have over 100 followers. I am not even done with my giveaway for 50 followers and I am at 100. This is just crazy to me. I am so excited and I told my husband and he was not as excited as I was but hey...he is not a teacher so I will forgive him. 

I have been seeing these FLASH sales and freebies all over the blogs lately. Well I thought I would join the party. I am going to have my S'more fraction item for FREE, yes I said FREE on my blog until Sunday night at midnight. CLICK HERE to get it. I am offering this on MY blog only and I am only advertising it here on this post only! So if you teach fractions then go ahead and grab it. 

Thank you for everyone who took part in my flash FREEBIE. The link has been closed. Hope everyone enjoys their item they downloaded. 

HUGE thank you to everyone one who has helped me reach this milestone. I can't believe how much my blog has grown over the past couple months. I can't wait to see what the future brings for myself and my blog!

 needed new binder covers for my binders that hold all my pacing guides, curriculum guides and standards for each subject I teach. I thought why not share them with everyone! Here they are. Each cover comes with a sheet for the spin of the binder.
Click the picture to get your copy! Would love some feedback.
Huge thank you to everyone who has joined in on my giveaway so far and those who have linked up their blog to my blogs page. I promise I will get to each and every blog that gets linked up.

Expanding My Blog

I am trying really hard to be all Techy by expanding my blog. I have added a Blogs page. I have opened this page up for the next week for fellow teachers to post their blog on my blogs page. I am hoping to find new blogs and to have some of my favorites at my finger tips.

Make sure you list your blog in the correct grade level spot. I only want teachers or home schoolers to add their blogs. My blog is education related and that is how I want to keep it. If I think that your blog does not fit my criteria or it is not appropriate I can and will delete your link from my page! 

Happy Linking!

Don't forget my GIVEAWAY

Two New Products

I can check off two products from my summer to do list. I thought I would display them here.

1. S'more Fractions: This one goes along with my two other S'more math packs. It is 14 pages. You can get it at both my stores.

 2. Novel Study using Get Ready for Second Grade Amber Brown. This is a great story for the first week of school. The story is all about a girl getting ready for her first day of second grade.

I would love some feedback on these items. This was the first time I used Power Point to create my products. I really liked how easy it was. Shout out to Ladybug Teacher Files for the how to videos! If you get a chance jump over to her blog and check out her video tips.

Don't forget about my GIVEAWAY.

I hear my husband calling me to bed. GOODNIGHT blog world.

1. Create 10 new items for my TN and TPT stores.
2. Make a Teacher Tool Box
3. Plan out a rough sketch of science and social studies for the WHOLE year.
4. Plan and create my presentation for the Common Core conference I am presenting at!
