SLANT Box and a Giveaway :)

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!  

I spent the month of March to know two amazing teacher-bloggers, Meghan from Keeping Up With Mrs. Harris and Amanda from Third Grade Fabulous.

Meghan is my first match; she is a K-3 intervention specialist in Georgia, and she sent her SLANT Box my way.  How awesome is it that she shares my passion for teaching intervention kiddos?!  Here's a little peek at the goodies she selected for me.  I love the navy and pink running shorts... a subtle reminder that I need to get out there and run, lol.  :)

I shipped my SLANT Box to North Carolina.  Amanda is a third grade teacher.  From coffee to an addiction for cute office supplies, Amanda and I have so much in common.  Here's a sneak peek at the box I sent her way.  But you'll have to hop over to her blog to see what's inside.  ;)

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

Giveaway Announcement: 

My friend, Andrea at Reading Toward the Stars, is celebrating her 2nd bloggy birthday by throwing a huge giveaway.  Several of her blogging buddies, myself included, have donated items for the giveaway.  Hop on over to wish her a happy birthday and enter her raffle for a chance to win some really awesome prizes.  :)


  1. Oh so much fun! I am so glad you ladies all got paired up! I hope that it continues to be awesome!
