SLANT Box & Winning!

Now that school is back in session, I value that weekends that much more! I was so happy to sleep in today! When I woke up, what did I do?? I went to my school to clean-up and laminate... yup! I just can't get away from school no matter what day it is! AND, I will be back again to print off reading assessments tomorrow. What can I say?? I love my job!

I am LATE to the party, but I wanted to share what I got in the mail several days ago... my SLANT box from Amanda and Stacia from the blog Collaboration Cuties. They knew just what I needed and I can't thank them enough for such an amazing SLANT box!

If you haven't heard of SLANT box, you've gotta check it out and join many other teachers next month! SLANT box is hosted by Jameson from Lessons With Coffee. I am secretly jealous that she came up with this idea before I did; it's a pretty cool way to interact with other teachers! 

SLANT stands for Sending Love Across the Nation to Teachers. You are paired up with two teachers, one to learn more about and to send a box to, and one teacher who will learn more about you and will send you a box! 

Here's the fun I got this month!!

My SLANT box partners learned that I have a pirate theme in my classroom. That's why I received some fun skull and cross bone decor in black and white. I also got a ton of super cute post-it notes and Duck tape! Who doesn't love fancy Duck Tape!?!

Here's the crazy thing, I told them I was looking for a black crow to go with my pirate theme, and they actually found one and sent it to me... I couldn't believe it! 

It was so great to be matched with Collaborate Cuties! I met some great new blogging friends! 

Last, but not least, last week I also got a gift from a giveaway! This was my first time winning a giveaway from another teacher blogger! I was really excited because it was a beautiful bracelet by Alex and Annie. It is beautiful and I've already word it three times! 

The giveaway was from Marcy at Searching for Teacher Balance. Marcy was one of my first blogging buddies and is from Oregon just like me! Here's the bracelet... 

Pretty, huh!?! 

I hope you get the chance to check out all of the bloggers I mentioned above AND join me next month for the SLANT box exchange! See you there!
