Teacher Appreciation Jackpot!

A huge thank you to everyone who participated in the Teacher Appreciation Jackpot yesterday! I hope you were able to stock up on some terrific freebies! - I know I did! An ENORMOUS thank you must be extended to Laura Candler, April McNair and Adrianne Meldrum for all their hard work in putting this together! You ladies are FANTASTIC in my book and greatly appreciated! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Don't forget that the TpT sale continues until 8 May so keep stocking up your cart and "shop 'til you drop!"

Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week and to ensure you feel TRULY appreciated a number of TeachersPayTeachers sellers and bloggers have arranged the first ever TEACHER APPRECIATION JACKPOT, an amazing "blog hop" event involving more than 130 bloggers!

We wanted to show our appreciation for you in a BIG way, so we've all agreed to give away one of our TeachersPayTeachers products for free on that day! Each free gift will be valued at between $3 and $8, so the total jackpot amount is estimated to be over $500!

Because so many bloggers are participating, this event will be divided into three grade level groups. Each of those smaller events is being coordinated by one blogger as shown below:

  • PK - Grade 2 - April McNair on A Modern Teacher
  • Grades 3 - 6 - Laura Candler on Corkboard Connections
  • Grades 7 - 12 - Adrianne Meldrum on The Tutor House

  • All the excitement unfolds on Sunday, 6 May! Not only will there be masses of items available for you to download for FREE in the Teachers Appreciation Jackpot, but there will also be a massive sale at TpT in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week. Please take a look through my TeachersPayTeachers store and feel free to load up your shopping cart! No need to worry that an item you add to your cart now might be the one that becomes free; if a product in your cart becomes free later you will not pay anything for it at checkout.

    Below you will find links to all the PreK-2 blogs that are participating in the Teacher Appreciation Jackpot. Each of these wonderful teachers will have a FREE gift available for you to download on Sunday! This is our way to show our appreciation of all that you do each day in the lives of your students and families.

    And now, here is the gift I have available for you in my TpT store:
    I know that you will definitely want to add this to your word wall activities and Literacy Centers next year!

    Thank you for following my blog and store...I hope you are made to feel truly appreciated next week!
