Thank You Giveaway! Plus 100th Day

Yay! I am so excited to have 15 followers and more than 750 page views in my first few days of blogging. Thanks to everyone who has visited and commented so far. This blogging world is so full of positive energy and support! Awesome!

To celebrate, I am giving away a full alphabet set of Rainbow Writing Pages to you friends, if you are willing to help me out! Here is what you can do to receive the prize:

1. Post a link to this giveaway on your blog.
2. Pin something from my blog onto one of your Pinterest boards.
3. Leave me a comment with your email and the link to your pin or your post.

EVERYONE who does either one of the listed things will get a set of these fun sheets, as long as I have your email and the link. Oh, and the contest closes 1 week from today on Sunday, February 5th at 11:59 P.M., so hurry up and get in on the action:)

Here is a preview:

Also, I wanted to share what my kinder kiddos will be up to on the 100th day of school, which for us is not until Feb. 15 (okay, it's really Feb. 13th but we have a professional development thingy that day, and I'm not going to leave all of that fun stuff to a sub)!!! And for those of you who don't live in Minnesota, YES we do have to stay in school wayyyy into summer. June 8th I believe. YUCK! But, we don't start until after Labor Day.

The kiddos will come in wearing their 100 crowns that I'm sending home for them to decorate with 100 stickers or something similar.
This is a pic of my 100th day crown from last year. It just needs to be mounted on a sentence strip and ta-da! Instant crown!

My students will be tracing or writing their numbers (depending on ability) 1 to 100 for morning work.

We will be using Crayola stamper markers to make collections of 100...I have a cute sheet for this and will post it ASAP... it's not on my computer.

We will be doing the good old "What would you buy with 100?" writing sheet (I've seen it posted everywhere, so won't bother putting up my own).

Of course, we have to make 100th day trail mix (each student picks 10 of 10 kinds of snack and puts it in a baggy).

Annnd we will make these adorable "100 Year Old" people! This idea is similar to others I've seen around on blogs, but I use cotton balls for the hair instead of paper. The kids lovvvve stretching the cotton to form strands of hair.

I think that's it. Sigh! Time to fill in the plan book and get prepping for next week!

Hope you all have a marvelous MONDAY:) :) Can't wait to hear from you about my give-away!
