100 Follower Giveaway



Wow! 100 followers is such an exciting event! When I started my blog I knew I would have one loyal friend and fan but I never imagined 100 lovely followers would come so soon! I wasn't really sure about this whole blogging business to be quite honest and I thought it would just be one more thing on my to-do list that never seems to end but I have really loved the journey! I've met some amazing teachers who I feel are the best of the best! I've built a solid PLN and I love stealing ideas learning from all of my blog stalking hopping. I've loved all of the comments and feedback I've gotten and feel like I've been able to really contribute to the blogging community which is such a humbling feeling :)! I would like to thank these seven wonderful bloggers ladies who teamed up and generously offered to donate something for my 100 follower giveaway! Not only are they kind but they also have some rockin' blogs that you should follow! Let's get to the giveaway...
I will be giving away a $10 iTunes card sent via email!


I will also be giving away a $5 Walmart gift card sent via email.
One lucky winner will win a custom created QR Code scavenger hunt or activity of your choice by yours truly! All you have to do is provide the content and I will do the work :)! 

Christy at Teaching Tales:Along the Yellow Brick Road is giving away any item from her TPT store!


Diane at Fifth in the Middle is allowing the winner to pick an item of your choice from her TPT store!


Mrs. Godwin at ilive2learn ilove2grow is donating any item from her TPT store!


Kristen at iTeach 1:1 has graciously offered to donate a prize TBD, perhaps it will be an item from her TPT store but I am not sure yet!


Kelly at An Apple For The Teacher is giving winners choice of one item from her TPT store!


Kate from EduKate and Inspire has kindly donated one item from her TPT store! Kate has some super cute technology stuff! I want to win this prize!



Andrea from Reading Toward the Stars  has generously donated any one item from her TPT store!

This giveaway is going on until Sunday, March 4th so you have plenty of time to enter!!! Good luck everyone!

  5. I have used QR codes to self-check as well as had students create projects (book summary/recommendations) and embed them into codes as a "hallway commercial" for other students in the school.

    I love educreations, toontastic, strip design, and pic collage apps! Congrats again on 100 followers, thank you for letting me help you celebrate! :)

  33. Hey there! No ipads in my classroom, but I have a favorite iphone app that I'm sure can be used on the ipad as well. TurboScan lets you take a picture of any document and then turn it into a pdf file. I've been using this in the classroom to take pictures of anchor charts, printing them, and having students add them to their reading notebooks.

    Its great to see another Virginia blogger out there. I'm your newest follower and look forward to learning from you!
