Win a $20 Shopping Spree!

We have our winners!

I got two numbers from the nifty random number generator:



Which means that the two winners are Cheri who was comment number 27 and Kristin who was comment number 60! If you two ladies would each drop me a note at


and tell me which products you would like from my TpT Store I will mail them directly to you. 


Thanks to everyone who participated. You all gave me quite an ego boost as well as some really wonderful ideas. If you didn't win this time - you will have another chance soon. I am teaming up with a few other sellers (they are amazing - you will probably recognize their names!) for another contest. More on that coming soon!
New: If there are over 50 participants - I will give away two prizes!

Minds in Bloom has a brand new blog button! To celebrate, I am giving away a $20 shopping spree at my Teachers Pay Teachers store. It is super easy to enter. All you have to do is comment on this post and either suggest a topic for me to write about in the future or say something nice about Minds in Bloom. One entry per person.

On Saturday afternoon or evening, I will use the random number generator thingy to pick a winner (2 if there are over 50 entries). I will announce the winners on this post, and hopefully, they will contact me within a few days. If that doesn't happen, I'll pick another winner.

I would be thrilled if you grab the button for your own blog, follow Minds in Bloom or my TpT store or "Like" my facebook page, but none of these are required to enter. Just a happy comment is enough.

Cheers!




(I have a new signature too, but I am not entirely happy with it yet)

Love your new button! I'd love to get some ideas for teaching writing in Kindergarten! I've been in first for 16 and moving to K this year--oh no! LOL

Love the new button! Yesterday, I used your 'Would You Rather...' questions in small groups as a get-to-know-you activity, and it was a huge success! Thank you for your awesomely creative (and creatively awesome!) resources!!

I love Minds in Bloom products. I will definitely be using them for subbing and as for fillers :)

I think your signature and button are cute :)

You have inspired me to start blogging and sharing my own resources. I recently moved to a new school district this year and will be a substitute, I know that many of your products will come in handy.
Thanks!

Sorry about the previous delete, I forgot to edit before I hit sent. (Doesn't this go along with the "teacher mistake" idea?)

I love your button! And I love the signature, too, especially the curly haired teacher I see on all your materials. In my mind, I'm convinced you look like that! :)

PS. Thanks for all the great ideas!

Love the new button! My kids struggle with guide words and identifying what words come in between - so I'd love some ideas to make this topic more interesting to the kids. It's funny - they can put things in ABC order, but have trouble with guide words! Thanks for the great blog with all your great ideas!

Your button looks great! I love your products - especially the what would you rather... I plan to have these on my podium for those extra minutes, or for morning meeting whip shares when I am out of ideas. I will be looking lots on the web blogs, stores, etc as I am at a new grade level and not sure what I need.

oops- i forgot to leave my name on the last post.

I like the new button too! I think that kids minds are like blooming flowers. They just need some water and food to get them to open up. Teachers provide that for students. So, I love that you have a flower representing students!

Jaime said...

Love the new button! Rachel, I have been a fan since I discovered you on TpT. All your resources, including this amazing website, are FULL of knowledge and ideas that actually work in the classroom setting. My kids love your stuff!

Out of My Mind... said...

Rachel - I love your site and the ideas you give me. I've just, just, just started blogging and I'd love to grab your button if I knew what it meant!

Terri said...

I love your products. I have been talking with other teachers about your stuff and how they can find you. I am hoping to do more writing in first this year. We always seem to miss some of this because our kids are so low when we get them we just struggle with basic handwriting.

Hi, Rachel! Your new signature is really cute. Both my students AND I love your products--they are so much fun and engaging! I would love to see advice for beginning teacher bloggers-- I'd love to start a blog one of these days, but I have no idea how to organize it,what to blog about, etc..

Really enjoy using your "would you rather questions". The first time I used these questions with my students (grade 5/6) they were completely in awe, they had never done anything like this before. Thank you for sharing!
