Countdown to Summer

So if you are like us you are probably counting down the days/hours/minutes . . . and maybe even second until summer break.  Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE our jobs, but we also LOVE our summer break.  This time of year it seems like it is such a challenge to keep our little kiddos engaged all day long. 

We decided we wanted to do something fun to countdown our last few days of school.  Since we have five duty days of teaching left we thought we could do five giveaways to thank all of you for following us this year and checking in our little blog. 

countdown to summer

Here’s how it will work . . .

On day 5 (Friday) we will give one lucky winner ANY 5 items of their choice from our TpT store.

On day 4 (Monday) we will give one lucky winner ANY 4 items of their choice from our TpT store.

On day 3 (Tuesday) we will give one lucky winner ANY 3 items of their choice from our TpT store.

On day 2 (Wednesday) we will give one lucky winner ANY 2 items of their choice from our TpT store.

On day 1 (Thursday) we will give one lucky winner ANY 1 item of their choice from our TpT store.

All you have to do is post a comment.  Each day we will draw a new lucky winner and announce it here.  Then all you have to do is send us an email with the items you would like to have.
