Thanks to our loyal readers!

We published our first post on May 12, 2012, so I guess we’re a couple of days late for our one month “blogiversary” (but better late than never, right?!).

When we first discussed starting a teaching blog, we were excited, but nervous at the same time…would anyone read our blog?  Would anyone find it interesting or useful? Would we even figure out how to “blog”? We’ve learned a lot in the last month, but one of the most important things we’ve learned is that we have some awesome readers!  In only one month, we have almost 100 followers! THANK YOU SO MUCH! We have readers from all over the world…Japan, Italy, USA, UK, Iceland, France, Indonesia, and, of course, our fellow Canadians!

We are so appreciative that you take the time out of your busy lives to visit our blog and read our entries.  We hope that you find the content on this website useful to your classroom practice, as our objective was to create a website by teachers and for teachers where ideas and resources can be shared and discussed.

We are giving our wonderful readers a little gift to show our appreciation! We will be drawing for TWO $10 gift certificates to Teachers Pay Teachers!  We decided this was a good choice since anybody anywhere can use this gift certificate to download teacher resources of their choosing!

How can you enter this giveaway?  Please use Rafflecopter to enter as many times as you would like (max 8)!  We only ask that you leave a comment in this post to let us know a little bit about you!  Are you a teacher?  Where are you from?  Tell us something about you please!
