New Year Craft and 2 Giveaways!

Today, my 3 year olds decorated a 2012 banner:

I planned to do this at the last minute after seeing a flip-book version of this craft featured on April's blog, Chalk Talk.  The idea comes from A Pirate's Life for Us.  (See below...under each flap, students wrote a resolution).

Have you heard about Holly's giveaway at Crisscross Applesauce in First Grade?  To celebrate reaching 250 followers, she is donating $30 to a charitable organization of the winner's choice.  If I win, I would choose for the money to go to the SPCA because animals are so near and dear to my heart.  I sometimes watch Animal Cops and it breaks my heart when I see the many cases of animal cruelty.  My dog, Louie, is from the SPCA, and I couldn't be more happy to have him.  I spoil him, but he spoils me just as much!  Be sure to visit Holly's blog for your chance to win this amazing giveaway.  

Another great giveaway is taking place at Color Me Kinder.  Edana is giving away a $10 gift certificate to Teachers Pay Teachers!  Head on over for your chance to win!  While you're there, be sure to check out Edana's New Year's ideas.  I can't wait to use them next year!!

Thanks for stopping by!
