Our One Year Blogiversary Giveaway- $50 Amazon giftcard plus the world's best pencil sharpener (and more!)




Hey there!

We can't believe that we have been in this blogging world for a year now...we have met so many wonderful teachers and formed so many bonds that we never would have formed had we not started this journey!

So, even though it's a bit past our blogiversary (sorry!  Christmas chaos hit and we didn't get our giveaway up and running on time!) we wanted to thank you for sticking with us, supporting us, and following our little old blog!

We hope you like what we have in store for you!!!

Because we love books and we've been sharing tons of books through our Mentor Text Linky, we thought it would be perfect to giveaway an Amazon giftcard to help those of you who have been racking up a huge Amazon account!  Or, if you are like me, you switched to Amazon Prime so you could order the books and have them within two days!!  As if I didn't have enough books, I still order some each week due to this linky!  So, this is our way of saying thank you to all who link up and all who read and try out these books in their classroom!!  Of course, you don't have to buy books...but if I know your teacher heart, you probably will!!  :O)
a Rafflecopter giveaway
Also, our friends at Classroom Friendly Supplies have donated a pink pencil sharpener so that you can have one of these amazing sharpeners in your classroom!!!  I'm so jealous, too!  I want a pink one so bad, but my black one is doing just fine so I don't really have an excuse to get another one...the kids use it constantly and it still sharpens like the day I got it (a year ago!)...If you don't have one, be sure to enter this giveaway and if you do already have one, you could give it as a gift!  (who am I kidding...you should totally just have 2!!).  And, if you don't want pink, I suppose we could let you choose the color...but the pink matches our blog and it's my favorite color so deep down, I hope you pick pink.  ;O)
(PS- they only send the sharpeners within the U.S.!  Sorry to all my non-U.S. readers!!)

Last, but not least, we are giving away 3 items of your choice from our TpT Store.  Happy shopping!!!

a Rafflecopter giveaway
Good luck and thank you so much for all of your support this past year!!  It means the world to us!  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

  51. Thank you for the great giveaway and happy blogiversary! I found you on "Monkey Lady's a Day in the Jungle" fb page. You're blog design is super cute. Polka Dots are my absolute favorite! I have a new favorite that a friend of mine wrote this year called the Birth of Christmas (which sounds Transiberian Orchestra like…it's absolutely beautiful). Half of the profits from his album are going to children's hospital's--St. Jude's and Arkansas Children's. Here it is on iTunes in case you are interested. https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-birth-of-christmas/id764604307?i=764604311&ign-mpt=uo%3D4

  56. YAY! Happy blogiversary! My favorite Christmas song is Silent Night. Several years ago...my grandmother stopped talking. At Christmastime, my whole family was at her house (all 75 of us). My cousin started playing the piano and everyone was signing Silent Night except my grandmother. All of a sudden, she started singing. It was amazing. As I'm sure you can imagine, there were many tears during the song. It's something I will remember always.

  59. I love lots of them, but I guess my favorite would be Dominick the Donkey (The Italian Christmas Donkey)! It's not played nearly enough! I downloaded it this year and played it for my kiddos at school! They might have thought I was a little crazy when I was singing along! LOL!
