Wow! I love blogging, I really do, but I’m honestly still sometimes surprised when people comment to let me know they’re reading. Then, Sunday, the amazing happened, I was nominated for the Leibster award by Liz Buzcrek of Liz’s Lessons! (BTW – have you seen her blog? It’s fantastic!)
Here’s an explanation of what the award is all about:
Liebster means “dearest” in German, and the award is intended to help up-and-coming blogs get the attention they deserve.
In order to accept the award, the blog owner must do the following:
1. Copy and paste the award on our blog.
2. Link back to the blogger who gave us the award.
3. Pick out five favorite blogs with less than 200 followers, and leave a comment on their blog to let them know they have been nominated.
4. Hope that the five blogs chosen will keep spreading the love and pass it on to five more blogs.
I am pleased to accept this award and would like to pass it along to the following great blogs:
BTW – In honor of the Leibster, I’m going to put my whole store on sale this weekend – Saturday & Sunday – 10% Off Everything!
Sales, giveaways, contests – wow! I try hard to blog about other important things for your classroom (TESOL Teaching Tips, Resources Lists, Classroom Tips), but the sales, giveaways and contests just keep coming along, and I’d hate for you not to know about it – so here’s one more. (I promise to have a good resource Top 10 list for you tomorrow, and some cool stuff that’s going on in my classroom next week.)
So, what’s the latest news? Well, Teachers Pay Teachers is giving out a Cyber Monday Code that will save you 10% all day on Monday. The code is: CMS28. Then, of course, I couldn’t let that be all there was to the sale, so I joined up with other TPT sellers, and put my entire store on sale for an additional 20% off. This is valid on Monday, November 28th only, so, hop over to my TPT store and load up on everything you’ll need to get you through the rest of the school year while it’s at such a high percentage off!
Okay, I know it’s just one day after Thanksgiving, but I couldn’t hold out any longer. I have been waiting and waiting to tell you about the coolest Christmas promotion that’s going to happen really, really soon. However, I really hate seeing Christmas stuff before Thanksgiving (or Halloween, lol!) so I waited. Now the wait is over – so here’s the scoop.
Twelve teachers who sell on Teachers Pay Teachers have come together to bring you the 12 Teacher Days of Christmas giveaway. Each of us have contributed a product (not a freebie, but a real, paid product from our store) and Charity Preston of the Organized Classroom Blog has organized it all for us, which is what she does best! All you have to do to get these 12 gifts is sign up for her newsletter before December 1st and you will get all 12 presents sent directly to your email address. Here is a link to her post about the 12 Teacher Days of Christmas giveaway, which features a list of all twelve of us who contributed and a link to sign up for the newsletter. There’s some really great stuff in these stores, so I can’t wait to find out which one we get. No, I don’t know any of the prizes but mine – and I’m not telling what mine is! Though you’re welcome to guess!!
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend, and enjoy the 12 presents coming your way! Oh, and don’t forget to get your 20% off for my Black Friday sale, happening right now, and ending at midnight EST tonight (Friday, November 25th).
