It's My Blog's Birthday!

One year ago today I published my first post on my little ole blog!  I didn't keep up with it so well during the school year, but I think I might have the hang of it now!  Hopefully!  I plan to keep up with my posting a little better this time around!

Now it's time to celebrate!  

It's my birthday, but you get the presents!

I have reached 250 followers, and my blog is one year old!  So to celebrate I'm throwing a sale in my TPT store and in my TN shop for 15% off this weekend only, July 28th - July 29th!

I'm also giving ALL of my followers a birthday gift!  You can pick any one of my scoot games listed below, and I'll email it to you for free!  You can see all of my games and more details and pictures in my TN shop or in my TPT store!

Just leave me a comment with your email address and the item you'd like BEFORE MIDNIGHT on Sunday the 29th!  I'll have all of the items emailed by Wednesday, August 1st!

Scoot: Identifying Nouns

Scoot: Rounding Robots

Scoot: Adjectives

And finally, I'm giving away some items to make going back to school a little more fun!  2 winners will each receive a copy of Barbara Robinson's chapter book "The Worst Best School Year Ever" (you know how I love those crazy Herdman's) and 7 packs of stickers (various shapes, sizes, and themes)!

You've just got one easy entry using rafflecopter!

So, do you have any blogging tips to help me keep it up after school starts?  

I'm going to have A LOT going on!

**Both giveaways are now closed!  Thanks to everyone who entered!**

  28. Hello! Congrats to you on your one year anniversary as a blogger. I'm a first year teacher and will be teaching third grade in September. My new hobbies are searching for teaching blogs and Pinterest. LOL! I'm impressed with all of the blogs and ideas from novice, to veteran teachers. I finally got around to creating my own blog! I originally planned to create a blog during my student teaching but it never happened. So I decided to chronicle my first year in third grade. I'm new to the blogging world so bare with me. I hope you will visit my blog and join!

    Peace & Blessings!


  29. Happy Blog Birthday!

  30. Congratulations on your success! I have never played Scoot with my 5th graders before and can't wait to start this year!

    I would love to have any of the scoots! But if I had to pick, I would pick Adverbs. I always feel like that's a hard one to teach and can use all the help I can get!
