My Computer's Back and going right to a GIVEAWAY!!



Hey all!!! It’s really been two weeks without a computer and my goodness it felt like forever…. I didn’t realize how much I use my computer or how im so dependent on it ….I also noticed that I usually would go on my computer when I was bored or just hanging out….so when that happened I was clueless on what to do lol…. I found myself pinning constantly on my phone at all times of the day ! Needless  to say I’m back and so happy to blog again!!  Before I left I was about to do a 200 giveaway…so here it is!

This is my first time using rafflecopter so I hope I get it right… I had some wonderful gals help me out with this and they will be donating one of their items from their store…   The 1st prize winner will receive a $20 giftcard to Amazon !  I really like Amazon ...i recently bought a whole bunch of i -phone cases for like $3...  The other two winners will receive a product of their choice from Dana AND receive Heidi's  Cooperative Learning Packet!! How awesome is that?... Make sure to enter !! The winner will be announced July 5th at 9 pm!!



                                                                  



a Rafflecopter giveaway





Well aside from the Fabulous giveaway…I wanted to share somethings ive been pinning lately… These are something I definitely want to try for the beginning of the year… They are so cute and I think these adorable little ideas will definitely help the kids feel more comfortable on the first day of school…. What  do you guys do to make your kiddies feel comfortable on the first day? 



popcorn and note to send home with parents/kids at Meet the Teacher!

This is an awesome idea for the teachers and kids! Have you ever collected hanging material to send home and have to search everywhere for the names?  This would be so easy to do because you just look at the picture and know exactly who's it belongs too  SO SMART! =)

This would be great to do the first day to clear all those nervous butterflies the kiddies and teachers probably have!  It would definitely be a fun way to get the students interacting and feel more at ease.  What do all of yall do to make the first day go smoothly?  I want to know your ideas...so share away =)

  20. I just had the same thing happen not too long ago. My school computer crashed one morning and I went out to buy my own that same morning. Talk about impulse. Glad to have you back online and congratulations on 200!
