100 Follower Giveaway and a Monday Made-It

It's true, it's true!  I've reached 100 Followers on both Bloglovin' and Google Friend Connect.

In addition, a few of my favorite blogging buddies have joined together to help me celebrate this special occasion.  Take a look these top-notch prizes you also could win...

If you haven't already visited these bloggers, hurry right over and check them out.  Their blogs are truly amazing and packed with tons of terrific teaching tips and tricks.  Just click on an image above.  You won't be disappointed!   

Enter Here and Good Luck!

Now for a *Monday Made-It* project...

My first attempt at making decorative R E A D letters for my classroom library was an epic fail.  :(

How did I not notice that?
Needless to say I had to make a second trip to the craft store, ha! 

Ahhh, much better.
I can't wait to hang this in my classroom.  Cute and colorful!  :) 

What have you been busy making?  Link up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics and share your treasures!
