Teacher Appreciation Giveaway!

If you give a teacher a gift card......they will LOVE you forever! Soooo, my bloggy friends at ITeach First have brought to you a fabulous giveaway to let you know that we think you are wonderful! You do so much each and every day that you deserve to be treated to a gift card!
Take a look at the great places you could win a gift card to....

So....I thought it would be fun to let you know what I would get if I was the lucky winner of 1 of these 4 gift cards! What catches my eye at each of these 4 fabulous places? Well, here is what I would indulge in with my gift cards!

Did you know that Target has Lilly Pulitzer? I know! It is brand new and just arrived to stores this week! I heard they are selling out fast so I might have to run to find these goodies. Check out that lovely iPhone 6 case! Gorgeous for the summer!
And I also love this Lilly Pulitzer scarf from Target!

I am not a HUGE Starbucks drinker but I do swoon and drool over the frappincinos. Add caramel and I will do a dance for it! So anything cold, topped with whipped cream, and drizzled in caramel is for me. Yup, anything from Starbucks that looks like this....

I have PRIME so bring it on. My wish list on Amazon is almost as long as the one I have on TpT :) I could get two of these with a $25 gift card!
 I love these dots! They are dry erase and kiddos can use them like a dry erase board! Great for guiding reading!
They are called WALLPOPS and you have to get the dry erase ones that come with a marker. Of course, I want alternating colors and that costs more because they come in a pack of 3 all the same color.
I would love to get more CLIP ART from awesome TpT sellers! I have my eye on a few sets. 

What would you buy? Head on over to iTeach 1st for a chance to win 1 of these 4 great gift cards! Good luck! Click on the image below to head over to ur collaborative blog to enter!

Check out what some my blogger friends would buy if they won!

Pick 3 - APRIL

Last year, I could not believe that the Sharpie I used to write word families on plastic eggs got all smeared and smudged! I thought Sharpie didn’t come off anything! I was wrong. Apparently little ones fingers can wipe it right off plastic! Here is the solution - clear nail polish! Who knew?

Love this! So easy and colorful! Great for fine motor skills too!


I have been making this cake for Easter for the past 4 years now! The one in the bottom pic is actually mine from last year! It is a new tradition! My girls and I love hunting down just the right colored peeps for the project! This year, we found white! It is just a simply boxed cake mix and frosting. The fun and color comes from the decorating! You have a lot of left over peeps once done!

Hop on over to see some more fabulous April Pick 3’s! Enjoy!
