  1. I love the Georgia-Pacific Sweepstakes. I would like to win some ipad minis for my classroom! My classroom is very short on technology. Kindergarten comes in last at my school. Hopefully one that will change!

  2. I am a determined penguin for Georgia Pacific. That would make my students chicks and my class a rookery. Go Georgia Pacific. DK is always a hit with nonfiction, now to partner with Lego, this is a great combination. Finally, Purell
    is used in my classroom everyday all day. It is great for perfect attendance awards.

  3. I work with 18 different classrooms that serve low income children/families. It would be splendid to win some of these wonderful items so the teachers could enrich their classrooms.

  4. I am hoping for the playmobil toy. I love their toys and have such fond memories of my own children playing with them. So want them for my classroom.

    And the lego books. Oh Wow.
    Would love the book its just in time for fall.

  5. This is a great resource for teachers! I would feel lucky to win any of the prizes. The story, Pick a Circle, Gather Squares, would be a perfect edition to my fall library!

  6. All of these opportunities are wonderful and most definitely will enrich whomever’s classroom that wins. I have never won any type of contest and hopefully I will someday soon. I run my schools visual arts program and any support or added supplies to help with my lesson planning or supplies would absolutely be wonderful in teaching my classes from 1st through 6th grade about art and art history development.

    Congratulations to the winners of these giveaway contest! Your are all awesome teachers!

  7. I love the book and the Legos however, I would appreciate and be thankful for any of the give-a-ways. I’m a special needs preschool teacher so the Legos and iPad would fit beautifully in my curriculum.

  8. I’d love to get any of the prizes, but the technology ones would be fantastic so I had another fun alternative for a center activity! Fingers & toes crossed!

  9. I am excited about the book, “Pick a Circle, Gather Squares”. As a Kindergarten teacher, we love to incorporate literature with our math lessons.

  10. I love all of the contests. I was mostly interested in the ipad giveaway and the watermelon quiz/contest. I am a 3rd grade science & social studies teacher and love, love, love hands on and innovative ways to teach these subjects to our majority bilingual population that is also comprised of special needs children reading at a kinder level!

    I’m keeping my lucky fingers crossed for the “Pick a Circle…” Book!

    Thank you!!!
