Simply the BEST! {giveaway!}

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!!!
I am so lucky to be a part of this AMAZING giveaway and hop...put together for you!
My friend Amy over at Teaching in Blue Jeans organized all of this and I KNOW you will love it!
There are over 100 teachers giving away products from their stores!
You can enter the giveaway below and continue on throughout the hop to read about each product in the giveaway!


The item from my store is my Elmer the Elephant (printable & craftivity!) pack.


If you've been following me, you know that I LOOOOVE Elmer! :)
Seriously. LOVE!!! Him. :)
Elmer teaches the kids a wonderful lesson.
I always start the year out with Elmer, but I know many people who use him at different times too.
I refer back to him throughout the year!!

This is the original Elmer book.
We start our Elmer unit with this!!


We talk about ways that we are different.
We talk about what it would be like is everyone was the same.
We talk about why it's okay to be different!
It's always a great discussion!!!! :)

Then we make our own Elmers!
We share them and talk about all the differences.
And how amazing and special all of them are!!!



After sharing, we write about something that makes us different (but special!)


We also make these little milk carton Elmers!
How cute are they?!
I blogged about how to make them {HERE!}



I also have the cutest little Elmer stuffed animal that I bought on Amazon!
I don't have a great picture, but you can see him on my desk in this one! :)
{The Elmer book is there too ;)}


There are so many other Elmer books so you can keep Elmer fresh all year long! :)

My friend Carolyn posted this costume on my Facebook page....
I NEED IT!!!


Thanks for stopping by and thank you for all the hard work you do!!
