New Design, New Giveaway, New Deal!

Hi, Teaching Friends!

I am SO excited to debut my lovely new blog design!! The sweet, talented, and oh-so-patient Megan at A Bird in Hand designed it, and I love it!!  Megan has a new "Build Your Blog" option which is just perfect for impatient people (like me). You tell Megan the colors you favor, choose a few other design options, and Megan waves her Magic Wand of Beautiful Blogs and puts it all together for you - fast! Her work on Primary Inspiration was completely done in less than 48 hours! If you're considering a new blog design, hurry on over to Megan's site! Thanks, you sweet, smart, amazing lady!!

Are you interested in winning some new classroom resources? Of course you are! Lisa at The Lower Elementary Cottage now has 200 followers and is throwing a terrific giveaway to celebrate! I hope you'll head on over to enter! (While you're there, be sure to notice my cute new blog button. Can you tell how happy all the sweet blue birdie stuff is making me?)

Do you remember hearing about the terrible destructive floods in Queensland, Australia a while back? Well, a group of Australian teacher-authors has organized a project to help teachers who've suffered the unimaginable loss of everything in their classrooms. This set, listed at TPT, has 550 pages of resources for just $15, all of which will go directly to the teachers at Bundaberg East State School in Queensland. $70 in resources for $15... and helping fellow teachers, too! It's only available through April 30th... won't you click on the picture and take a look? Thanks!



Happy Teaching!

    1. Thanks, Sara! It feels kind of like getting a new haircut that makes you feel good when you look in the mirror, day after day after day! :)
