Winners, Awards, a new Blog and a Freebie :)

But not in that order....

It just sounded better in that order.

First, let me tell you about the newest, coolest blog on the block for 3rd-6th Grade Free Resources:

Misty from Think, Wonder & Teach thought up this little gem and it's perfect for those of us in the upper grades.  She's got a link for each of the grade levels.  It's super organized and super cute, too.  She's allowed me to become a contributor!  Thanks, Misty!  I hope to live up to her expectations :)

Here's Misty's blog link because you really need to check her out if you haven't already:

Next up, Tammy over at Confessions of a Fourth Grade Teacher nominated me for this award:

I {like a total dork} haven't placed it on my blog I am now.  Thanks, Tammy for the award!

Finally, I'd just like to say how totally humbled I am that I've reached (and exceeded) 200.  I can't believe it.  I really never imagined that I'd end up with over 100, but here I am at 200.  My family keeps teasing me that any more and I'll appear narcissistic.  Pleh....{Yes, Dad, that was aimed at you.}

He won't read it.

Anyway- I'd also like to share that the sales of my poetry and figurative language lapbook has inspired me to try to do this more often!  I've sold 7 copies already and I've not even had my giveaway yet.  That tells me that people are seeing it on Pinterest, perhaps, and heading straight to TpT to buy it.  How unbelievably cool is that?

To celebrate's a paper freebie for you.  We have a field trip tomorrow and I wanted a cute paper for my students to draw a picture and write a summary about what they learned.  {Graphic from 3AM Teacher, of course.}

Go grab it from either my TpT store or my TN store. 
So- now for that giveaway.

Here are the 5 winners:

Congrats to:
