I got a Makeover!

...well, I wish I got a makeover, but no such luck. Being on maternity leave, my usual look consists of a hoodie, yoga pants, and a ponytail!

...but...my blog getting a makeover is the next best thing!!

The talented Danielle at Crayon Box Designs brought my vision to life, and I am in LOVE.
To be honest it isn't at all what I had first envisioned, but after a few emails back and forth (I'm pretty sure she was ready to call it quits and be done with me at one point) this was the end result.

I love the chalkboard background with the primary colours! What do you think??

I wanted to celebrate my new look with a little giveaway...interested??

All you have to do is leave me a blog post, letting me know what grade you teach, and give me an idea for a topic you would love to read about on my new blog.

If you are selected, you will win a $20 shopping spree in my store!
If I receive more than 20 comments, I will pick extra winners for every additional 10 comments posted. Those selected will win a $10 shopping spree, so spread the word!

Good luck and, as always, thanks for following!

  8. Your new design is fantastic, and it is perfect for math. I teach 4th grade, and I could use some help with how you get your students to remember their facts as multiplication and division are huge for our 4th grade curriculum. I've given students flash cards, multiplication charts, and we regularly practice, yet I still have a bunch of students who don't know their facts:(
