Say what?!? 500 followers & Giveaway Reminders!!

No way! 500 followers! Get out of town!
When I started this blog many months ago, I could only dream of this milestone. Now it's here & I'm so very thankful that YOU find my blog worth reading! Not only have I found so many great teaching ideas, I feel like I have made many new friends.
Over the next few days, this blog is in for some changes! No, I'm not going anywhere, but I have some very exciting things in the works. You'll see!
Since I am ending my current giveaway, I figured that I would like to thank ALL of my followers. So I am in the process of making a back to school pack of favorite read aloud activities. The books include Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, Chrysanthemum, The Kissing Hand, Officer Buckle and Gloria, and If You Take a Mouse To School. The best part is that it will all be free!! Yes free for all of my awesome followers. You help put a smile on my face by giving your kind words & encouragement everyday. This is how I can thank you to everyone. I will have this pack up in a few days once I get it perfected! Here is the preview:
Okay, now I'm getting off of my soapbox!
