400 Followers and a Giveaway!

Y'all are amazing! I never imagined I would have 400 followers, especially after less than 4 months! Wow! Thanks for all the sweet comments and support. It gets me through some of the hard days.



Well, to say thank you, I'd like to host my own giveaway. I am giving away my newest unit, Phonics Friends, to not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 people. Yes, you could be one of 4 winners. (More fun than when just 1 wins, I think!) But wait... there's more! (Hehe... love that line!) If you are one of 4 winners you won't only get Phonics Friends, you will also get to pick something else from my Teachers Pay Teachers store!

If you can't wait that long to snatch your copy of Phonics Friends, head on over to my Teachers Pay Teachers store to purchase it for only $3.00. I will keep that price through the end of the contest! (If you decide to purchase it and you win I can send you something of your choice in place of Phonics Friends!)

So, to sum it up, 4 people will win Phonics Friends and something else of their choice from my Teachers Pay Teachers store.

Here's how you can get your entries:
  1. Follow my blog and leave me a comment saying that you do.
  2. Follow my Teachers Pay Teachers store and leave a comment saying that you do.
  3. Look around my Teachers Pay Teachers store and let me know what product you would choose in addition to Phonics Friends.
  4. Post about my giveaway on your blog.
  5. Leave a suggestion for products you would like me to create and sell on Teachers Pay Teachers, or a request for a topic of a future blog post.
You have until midnight Saturday, April 30th to enter the contest. Please leave a comment for each entry WITH your email so I can send you your winnings!

The lucky winners will be announced the afternoon of Sunday, May 1st!

I would love for you to make a game/activity packet for all things numbers with a boy theme. Maybe a pirate theme where walking the plank is one of the games or a construction them where you have to build something or sports or racecars or bad guys vs. good guys. You get the idea. I have so many ideas, but I just don't have the tools or the know how to put it all together. Thanks!

Tough choice... I think I would either choose the Word Detective Book (such a cute idea!) or Short and Long Vowel Phonics Friends.

One of the things I think you should post in your TpT store are word for the word wall but with pictures next to the words.. This way the students that cant read yet or are a bit behind can still participate by referring to the picture next to it. Thanks for sharing all your ideas

I would love to see activities and games for dipthongs or r-controlled vowels. My firsties have sure struggled with them. Also, any general activities or games to be done to practice our spelling words and phonic sound each week, which can then easily be used each week. We play sparkle a lot. We also spell our words with actions. I teach 26 first graders and only have a very small whiteboard so board races are not do-able, unless I find a way to have them use their own whiteboards for them. I do have a smartboard, but I need more ideas to get all my students involved so that I'm not doing the same activities every week. Thanks so much!
