First Friday Giveaway

Blog PhotoY’all know I love trivia. Well, here’s my latest find. September is the only month that the number of letters in its name matches its month number—nine and nine. As soon as I learned this, I began to check months in question, such as August (seven letters, eighth month) and April (five letters, fourth month). Feel free to transform this into a nifty spelling activity!

Now about that giveaway. To enter, simply share the grade(s) you are teaching or will be teaching during the 2016–17 school year. If you aren’t currently teaching, no worries. Just tell us that. This month’s winner will receive the mailbox pictured (contents included!) and two packs of stickers. Just be sure to enter before midnight, September 11.

Looking forward to hearing from you!


Congratulations to Teresa H., the winner of September’s First Friday Giveaway!

    My main role for the past two years has been homeschooling my daughter like I have both my children in the past in WA state. It is going very well. She completed 7th grade last year and we will complete 8th this year. I believe learning takes place in a positive safe place, filled with laughter. The end of the year test (Standford 10) I had her take. Showed she needed to be in college already in most subjects. She is learning every subject at a far rapid pace and in a fun/unique way through field trips, and more.
