A Product Swap Announcement!!

I have decided to host a product swap! I've been thinking about it for the last TWO months and what I would call it, the details, how I would go about doing it and I am SO EXCITED about FINALLY posting it!

After a lot of playing with words and eliminating possibilities, I've decided to call it:

Only AFTER I created my cute little button above did I realize that it's almost October AND Fire Prevention Week!!! Whoop!! So it ended up being perfect!

Now. In order to have a product swap....I'm going to need people who are willing to swap a product with someone else!

Here are the requirements to participate:

**You MUST have an educational blog (Facebook will not work) 
**You MUST have a TPT store (or TN store) with at least 15 products listed.
**You MUST be willing to swap one product from your store, of your partners choosing, with your partner (I will pair you with someone) and you will get to choose one product from their store.
**You MUST print their product, take pictures of their product IN ACTION and then make a great blog post about their product, including pictures and why others just can't live without it THEN post it and link it up on the date I give you.
**You MUST be willing to give 1 lucky reader your product for FREE in a giveaway that will be hosted on your partners blog. (That means you will also do a giveaway of their product on your blog as well) I'll include more details on how to do this after you sign up.
**You MUST have products for grades K-2

If this swap goes well and I get positive feedback, I would love to have this become an ongoing swap (maybe once a quarter or something) and would then consider adding more people and a higher grade level as well.

SO, what are you waiting for!?!

If you would like to participate AND you fit ALL the criteria listed above just click below to fill out the google doc for me.

***The sign ups for this Product Swap are now closed.
Make sure you follow my blog so you'll be the first to know about upcoming swaps!***

I'll close the doc once I have enough people to participate and then we'll get started! Space is limited and it won't last long, so get in while you can!!

If you have any questions at all about this, just leave a comment below with your email address and I'll make sure you get a response!

I'm SOO excited to have you be included in this swap!!

Who doesn't love Pinterest!?!

Today I'm linking up for the first time with Mrs. Plemons' Kindergarten for her "Positively Pinspiring" linky! Everyone LOVES Pinterest, and what a great way to share with each other our great finds each week! I don't know how I haven't linked up before now....oh well, better late than never right!?

If you like what you see, just click on the picture to go right to the source!
I LOVE me some free clip art....especially when its as cute as these monsters from Creative Clips! Just click the picture above to go grab them for yourself. I have a Clip Art Freebie Board on Pinterest if you'd like to check it out!

I love finding new and different behavior management ideas! This idea from Rowdy in Room 300 would be a great way to work on becoming a team at the beginning of the year. Each table has to work together to put their apple together. Click on the picture to read more about this fun idea. This could be adapted to different holidays and themes you're learning about throughout the entire year! (I also have a Classroom Management board if you want to look at it for other fun ideas!)

Literacy & Laughter came up with a "Book Lovers Club"
How cute is that!?!
What a fun way to instill the love of books in your students!

I'm loving all things Fall right now!

Aren't these polka dot block pumpkins to die for!?
The link for these just takes you to a blog post with different Halloween decor ideas, but doesn't tell you how to make it. It wouldn't be too hard though, right?

This is my latest product! There is one for each Dolch sight word list along with bundles. Its a great way for your kinesthetic learners to use letter beads to practice sight words.
(Look for a blog post featuring these packs with a freebie coming soon!)

If you've never linked up before, like me....what are you waiting for!?
I'd love to see your favorite finds on Pinterest this week!

Here's how it works:

1. Write a blog post containing your fave finds on Pinterest for the week. (Education related or just for fun pins are welcome, but please link to your blog post not your TPT store)

2. Please be sure the Pinterest links your sharing link to the correct ideas so people can find the source if they want to try it out!

3. Share the linky button in your blog post and link back to Mrs. Plemons' Kindergarten post for this weeks linky!
