Teacher Appreciation Jackpot Update!

Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week, and Sunday, May 6th is sure to be your lucky day! I'm excited to announce the very first Teacher Appreciation Jackpot, an amazing "blog hop" event involving over 130 bloggers!
We wanted to show our appreciation for you in a BIG way, so we've all agreed to give away one of our TeachersPayTeachers products for free on that day! Each free gift will be valued at between $3 and $8, so the total jackpot amount is estimated to be over $500! We'll post the actual amount on Saturday, May 5th.
Because so many bloggers are participating, this event will be divided into three grade level groups. Each of those smaller events is being coordinated by one blogger as shown below:
               PK - Grade 2- April McNair on A Modern Teacher
               Grades 3 - 6- Laura Candler on Corkboard Connnections
               Grades 7 – 12- Adrianne Meldrum on The Tutor House
I can't share any more details just yet, but be sure to check back each day this week to see the events unfold! Watch for blog posts tomorrow from your favorite bloggers to see who is participating in this one-of-a-kind event!In the meantime, why not take a look at the items in my TeachersPayTeachers store and comment to let me know which item you would like as your free gift? Keep in mind that the free item will be valued between $3 and $8.  I'd love to see what interests you!
Thanks so much for all you do! We appreciate your commitment to your students and your dedication as an educator! Thanks so much!-Yvonne

  2. Thank you Amelia! I will put it first on my list of choices. Make sure you keep checking back to see if that is what I decide to give as my freebie. Thanks for your sweet comment!-Yvonne :)
