A Milestone and a Giveaway!!!

WOW! I am so excited to have reached 100 Bloglovin' followers! When I started blogging last summer, I just wanted a way to connect with other educators and share ideas. Like everything else, I dove in head first, blogging several times a week. As the year wore on, I've slacked off some, but I am getting back into the swing of things now!

In true blogger fashion, I wanted to do a giveaway to celebrate! I've been fortunate to get to know some amazingly talented educators, and they have donated some of their best resources for this giveaway. In fact, there were so many responses that I split them into two great prize packages! Take a look at what you could win!

Prize Package #1:
Multiplying & Dividing Decimals Task Cards from the lovely Kristi DeRoche - My SLANT box buddy from back in the fall has some fantastic resources in her growing TPT shop! I am loving her Fraction & Mixed Number Task Cards right now.

Number of the Day Task Cards from Jennifer at Mrs. Laffin's Laughings - I just love linking up on Sundays for A Peek at My Week, and I always seem to find such good ideas in everyone else's plans!

Interactive Writing Notebook from Erin at I'm Lovin' Lit - Seriously, if you haven't checked out her interactive notebooks, you're missing out! I am in LOVE with the Literature and Informational Text notebooks and use them on a daily basis.

Similes, Metaphors, and Idioms Sort from Mary at Fit to be Fourth - Mary has some great writing ideas, and I am finding tons of goodies for our figurative language unit that we started this week!

Winner's Choice up to $10 from Diane at Fifth in the Middle - Diane has oodles of great 5th grade ideas, but my very favorite has to be her Genre Reward Tags. My kids will read ANYTHING if there's a brag tag to go with it, and they were so excited to get their new tags for honor roll this past quarter!

Of course, I had to give something away too, so you can also choose anything up to $10 in my TPT store!

Prize Package #2:
Sticky Mats for Reading Strategies from Sarah at MissKinBK - I love her use of sticky notes with reading comprehension strategies, and my students love getting to write on them!

Math & Science Review Games from Martina Cahill - I discovered these when she donated them for this giveaway, and I cannot wait to use them as a review before state testing!

Theme Mini-Posters from Stephanie at Forever in Fifth Grade - Stephanie is a veteran teacher with such great ideas! I loved her most recent post, specifically for the way she uses KWL charts. She had the simplest idea that would make mine so much better! Check it out here.

Winner's Choice up to $8 from Deb at Crafting Connections - I absolutely love Deb's craftivities. They keep my students engaged in even the most boring concepts!

Winner's Choice of a Math Unit from Ideas by Jivey - I can't say enough about how great her products are! My class loves doing her Mentor Sentence units every week. In fact, they complain on short weeks if I don't do one!

I couldn't give one person goodies from my store without giving it to both winners, so you will also get to choose anything up to $10 in my TPT store!

The giveaway is open now through midnight Monday, the 10th. I will announce a winner sometime on Tuesday, February 11th. You know what to do with the Rafflecopter below...

Good luck, everyone!
