This month’s First Friday Giveaway is definitely something to ROAR about! It started with a pack of 18 colorful Expo dry erase markers. Then I went looking for a couple of fun books for back to school. Two dinosaur books would do nicely. Then I found an adorable plush T-Rex—and well, you know what happened next. He came home with me! So there you have it! The makings of a “dino-mite’ First Friday Giveaway. In fact, I think it’s “T-Rex-cellent!”
To enter for a chance to win, simply answer the question below right here on the blog before midnight, August 15, 2019.
When does your school year officially begin?
I know teachers are DINO-MITE!
Congrats to Kathy R., the winner
of this month’s Dino-Mite Giveaway!
