October SLANT Box Reveal

This week went by in a blur.  After two very long evenings at work and a slew of parent-teacher conferences, I felt weary.  It was wonderful to wrap up the week with a little surprise on my doorstep when I finally made it home.  Hello October SLANT Box!  :)

Have you heard of The SLANT Box Exchange? SLANT stands for Sending Love Across the Nation to Teachers.  It's a monthly gift exchange for teachers hosted by Lessons with Coffee.   I love, love, love this idea!  

The SLANT Box Exchange

I spent this past month getting to know two amazing teacher-bloggers, Laura from Enchanting Learning and Terry from First at Bat.

Laure is my first match; she teaches kindergarten and sent her SLANT Box my way.  From baking (and eating) to drinking coffee, eating chocolate, and watching movies, Laura and I have so much in common. Here's a little peek at the goodies she selected for me

I sent my SLANT Box down south to Terry in Florida.  Terry is a first grade teacher and a gifted writer.  I've enjoyed following her thoughtful "I Am Thankful" posts on Facebook.  She has a warm heart, strong faith, and beautiful grand-babies that she showers with love.  

This project was super fun.  It was wonderful getting to know Terry and Laura.  I'm looking forward to continuing these new friendships.  

Don't forget to hop on over and visit them at First at Bat and Enchanting Learning.

If you'd like to participate in SLANT, visit Jameson at Lessons with Coffee.
Special Announcement:  Come join me Friday for a Gift of Reading Blog Hop.  You can grab up some great literacy freebies and enter a giveaway for one of three TpT Gift Cards.


  1. Both boxes look really wonderful! :) Lots of fun goodies!


  2. I will eventually get my post up about my SLANT box, but I did LOVE getting to know you and I also look forward to getting to know you even more. I put my pumpkin and runner on the table this weekend, it looks so beautiful!
