Feeling Lucky {and blessed!}

Tomorrow marks the one week anniversary of my blog and I already have two exciting bits of news to share!  This week, as I blog-hopped, I entered a few contests and giveaways.  I am so excited to share that I won not once, but twice!!! Perhaps I should go buy a lottery ticket?

The lovely ladies at Lesson Plan SOS were having a giveaway for a HearAll Assessment Recorder from Learning Resources.  I can think of so many uses for this tool in my classroom... from small group book discussions to recording students practicing poetry.  If you are interested in more information about the HearAll, click the Learning Resources link below.  I cannot wait for it to arrive!  Thanks Nicole and Melissa!

For my second big win, I have two people to thank!  First, I need to thank Kelley from Teacher Idea Factory.  Have you seen her adorable blog design? 

Sour Apple Studio

I was curious to see who designed her blog, so I scrolled to the bottom and discovered Sour Apple Studio.  While I was checking our the Sour Apple Studio site, I entered a contest to win a custom blog design... and WON!  I was shocked, to say the least!  Check out Lindsey's portfolio to see some of her recent blog designs.  She does great work and I'm sure she can help me bring the rest of my blog vision to life!


Hope you all are having a great weekend!  

PS: I'm working getting some of my files ready to share with you all!  It makes me nervous to start sharing because of all of the recent copyright problems.  I need to start going through all of my files to make sure I have given proper credit to everyone.  Does anyone have any tips or links to resources that can help me understand copyrights better?  Thanks for any help you can provide!

  1. Hey Kate! There is a TPT seller named Margaret who put together a very through packet that answers all Copyright questions. It is Titled Top 5 Copyright Questions but she actually answers more than that, I assume because people kept coming up with questions. I found it very helpful. Click here
    to download it for free from here TPT store.
