RedditGifts Teacher Exchange

If you follow my Facebook page, you may have seen me share a link about the RedditGifts Teacher Exchange! Well, I was lucky enough to have signed up in time and I am so glad I did!
Not sure what I'm talking about? Well, it's a teacher exchange where you can sign up as a donor or as a teacher who would like to receive a care package. You can upload a wishlist and they will tell you to note that most donors give gifts around $20 in value. Once the exchange sign ups end, you are matched with a donor and that person will ship you your goodies!
Well, I totally hit the jackpot because my donor was AWE to the SOME! I got sooo many goodies! I just had to share with you all! If you missed it this year, definitely do it next year!
An overall shot of all the goodies!

So here's what I got: 7 hardcover books, 3 packs of crayons, 1 paperback book, 1 classpack of markers, 2 packs of bright safari themed pencils and 6 reams of copy paper!
How amazing is that?!? Here's some close-ups!

 And I got a note from the sweet sender:
This note says there's even more goodies on the way, which is hard to believe because I already got so many! But, I would love those too! :)

So hopefully I've convinced you to check this out next year and participate! They are still looking for donors as some teachers haven't been matched up yet! So if you are in the giving spirit, go ahead and sign up and make a teacher's day! And if by some miracle my gifter is reading this post, THANK YOU!!!!!

Click this logo below to check it out! They have a Facebook page too, click here.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Little Slice of Teacher Heaven {Erin Condren Planner Review}

Well y'all, I finally took the plunge and treated myself to an Erin Condren Teacher Planner a while ago. I meant to do this review a long time ago... but alas, here I am, finally doing it now!
Everything in this planner is amazing! From the beautiful packaging to all of the useful things inside!
Here's a few pictures!
First up, the unveiling! The planner comes wrapped so beautifully that you almost don't want to open it! It's so fancy! :) Makes you feel really special!

Next up, you get some extra goodies inside of the package that are pretty nifty too! You get a welcome discount, a $10 off card, and a super cute pack of sample labels with your name already on them. Samples that you can actually USE are awesome!!

Another part of the planner I really enjoy is all of the inspirational quotes that you find throughout the whole planner. Some are whole page inserts and some are found along the top and bottom of pages. It's nice to have these positive reinforcements around when teaching can sometimes be full of so much negativity! 

Now let's talk about organizing. There's all types of nifty ways to stay organized with this planner! It includes a helpful hints for substitutes page, a 2013-2014 calendar page, classroom events & volunteers page, multiple pages of student checklists, happy birthday layout and several notes pages! {plus way more}
 Now what about lesson planning? Well, you've got options for that too! You have a whole planning section (as pictured on top) that goes Monday - Friday and can be personalized with subjects/times across the top of the page! Then, you also have a monthly layout for each month (as pictured on bottom) which is great for keeping track of meetings, conferences, etc. And to finish it off, you also have a "Year at a Glance" page too!
 And last but not least, you have some nifty things in the back of the planner! I especially love these pre-made labels! They include labels for things such as assemblies, IEPs, furloughs, etc. You also get 2 pages of blank labels so you can personalize to meet your needs! Other extras that aren't pictured include page protectors, a pencil pouch with some neat personalized labels inside, and a folder!
And one of the most fun parts of picking out a planner is picking the design and personalization for the front! This is the one I chose! I <3 it! I personalized it with Mrs. Roberts across the front and I think it's so cute! The thing you see on the left side is a ruler/page marker. :)
 If you want to check these planners out for yourself, just click the picture above! Erin has all kinds of adorable products!
**I was in no way compensated for this review**
Thanks for visiting! :)

I've been a HORRIBLE blogger these past couple weeks. I wish I had a better excuse, but the truth is, I'm totally overwhelmed at school! And right now, that HAS to be my focus! I promise I have several blog posts I want to share... and I WILL get around to doing it as soon as I possibly can!
While you're waiting and trying to keep the cobwebs away, here's a couple of upcoming things to check out!

The other piece of information I want to share with you, before I hit the sheets tonight, is that I am on the Educents ALL STAR BLOGGER Team and I'm SOOOO excited about it! They contacted me to write a post about incorporating apps/websites into the classroom back in August. I wrote it up and sent it in! I just got word that my post goes live on their blog Saturday morning! I. Can't. Wait! I soooo hope you will check it out on Saturday! I would love to hear comments if you do!
I will put up a post on Saturday with links on where you can check it out! :)
I even got this awesomeness for blogging for them! It's permanently on the right side of my blog! :)
