Christmas Around the World Giveaway!

If you have been here before, then you know I'm a huge fan of DJ Inkers. Let me tell you, that YOU too, can be a fan. I'm about to give away a set called Holidays Around the World

It includes 7 different places with clip art, printables & fun facts for each one. (There's Australia, Germany, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Mexico, Scandinavia & the USA.)
Holidays Around the World clip art

I created a project from this clipart, that includes 3 of those places. It is yours for free for a short amount of time. Click here to grab it. This would be great for 2nd or 3rd grade students. Besides helping them with comprehension, it's also a great way to help them compare the countries to see how they are alike and different. 

 This set shows the traditions of Africa, Germany, and Mexico. With this set your students can work in a center or small group to read about each country and then match up the four fact cards for each place. 

There is also a black and white set for the students to color and put together in a booklet to take home. 

Did you know that DJ Inker's is having  12 Holly Daze Sale from December 1-12, 2016. You can read more about it by clicking on these blue letters. Click on the red letters to go to their store and take advantage of their fun stuff! If you sign up for their newsletter, then you'll be notified right away. If you are already a newsletter subscriber, then you know they send you a lot of freebies. Who doesn't love their freebies?

 Would you like to win this clipart set? Just enter the rafflecopter below and cross your fingers. Maybe you'll win. 

I wish you the best of luck and hope that you are my lucky winner.

Have You Downloaded the TPT App?

Have you seen the new app for TPT 
that you can put on your IPhone? 

It is a work of wonderfulness! 
(really? is there even such a word?) 

It's not just for sellers. It's for teachers everywhere in any capacity that want to tap into wonderful resources at the tip of their fingers. 

It's FREE and it has made my life (and many other teacher's lives) a lot better. 

The picture below shows you what it looks like when you search for it in the ITunes Store. 

When you download the app, you get many features. 

First you get a glimpse of some freebies. 
(Who on this earth does NOT like freebies?)

There are different freebies each day.
Next you can follow your favorite teacher-authors. 

I always love to see what they are up to.
Next, I can search for things that I need right now or in the near future for my class. 
TPT also gives ideas to help keep us motivated and on track. 

Their team really rocks when they put this together. 
In this section, you can read more previews and ratings to be sure you are getting just what you want. 

Along the bottom of the app, you'll see where you can search, look at your shopping cart, and look at your favorites.

In this section if I click on the arrows on the left they will open up things that I have purchased, put on my wish list, and sellers I'm following. It also shows where to contact TPT and the settings that you may need to adjust. 

The benefits to having the TPT app on your Iphone or Ipad are great. All this for free at your fingertips is ideal when we know how precious our time is. 

Here's a few of the reviews: 

Customer Reviews


I love this app! I have missed out on great products before because I read about them and then would forget the name or whatever and missed out on purchasing. With this app, I can grab it on the go and then it's in my purchased items when I need it. Also, I love the highlighted freebie and blog links. Quick access to great ideas!
User friendly! 

This app is a great way to shop, check my sales, and access a freebie of the day! I love how I can email a link to myself to easily download purchases.
Excellent App! 

This app is so easy to use! I love how each day a free item is featured and how there is such great information for teaching right at my fingertips! Thanks for making such a great app!
If you haven't downloaded it yet, you can do it right now, before you forget!

The Pronouns and Fact & Opinions set is bundled to make it cheaper. But if you prefer, you can buy them separately and they are on sale too. 

 These littles are playing the Fact and Opinion game. They feel more confident about knowing the difference between these two after playing this.

November Math Game Giveaway

I love October but now that it's over, it's time to move on to November. I made a great game for kids to practice their doubles, doubles plus 1, and doubles plus 2. It doesn't take much to prepare and it will give your littles lots of learning throughout this month. 

YOU can win a set of these and it's really easy to do. Just go to my facebook page, like it, and leave your email address. I will pick two winners on Friday night around 7:00. 
Click HERE to go to my page. 

Good luck!

Why Brain Breaks Shouldn't be Earned. A Shared Post

I found another great read for you. It's from Chanda at Pink Oatmeal. (don't you just love that name!!!) 

I love brain breaks and I'm truly one of those kids who should have had brain breaks when I was a kid. I remember my grandmother telling me that I couldn't sit still. She asked me to try to sit still for 4 minutes, and I remember that I couldn't. I COULDN'T!

Maybe if my teachers let us wiggle more, I would have paid attention in school better and not paid attention so much to my friends and their silliness! 

So read what Chanda has to say about Brain Breaks and why they shouldn't be earned. Click HERE!
