Kinder Krazy 100 Follower Giveaway!!

Well friends, the day has finally come! I have reached 100+ followers on this little blog of mine (thanks to all of you!) and I've put together a sweet little giveaway to celebrate! I am also celebrating my first year of teaching coming to a close! I can't believe all that I've done and learned in my first year of teaching. Besides having 24 little kinder friends and doing my best to prepare them each day for first grade, I never thought I would've started a blog (and kept up with it), started a Facebook page, AND started a TpT and TN store in my first year! Some might call a girl like that CRAZY....Kinder KrAzY to be exact! :) I guess my blog name fits me then! Alright, let's get to this sweet little giveaway shall we?! Check out the awesome prizes you could win from these amazing bloggers and teachers by clicking on each picture! It will take you to either their entire store or the item they have donated to the giveaway. Be sure to check out and follow each of their blogs through the Rafflecopter below. Again, THANK YOU for all your support this first year and caring enough to stop by my blog! I really appreciate it and love reading all of your comments!

  1. My advice to beginning teachers is to make sure you balance your teaching and your personal life. Remember to take time for yourself - it makes you a much better teacher :)

  8. This was my first year teaching. My advice is don't be afraid to ask questions. I have a great co-teacher, instructional coach,and principal who are always willing to answer any questions I have, and it has been so much help!

  9. My advice is don't be afraid to ask for help and make sure you have an outlet after school for yourself.

  10. My advice is to talk to parents(scary I know) about small things, that way when it's about something big, you already have a relationship with them (and then it's not so so scary to talk to them). Also to always find something positive about your kids/day to talk about. Keep smiling! :)

  15. My advice for first year teachers is make sure you have enough 'bricks in the wall' of different things. Meaning if all of your 'bricks' life is consumed by work and all of sudden work isn't going well your wall will collapse. In other words, make sure you've got more personal life stuff happening than just work so it balances it out.

  16. My advice is family first & don't try to do it all. Share with grade level teammates & enjoy your students! dbednarsk@yahoo.com

  17. I just found you blog and it is adorable! You are pretty amazing to be able to be a first year teacher and have a blog and stores, etc! I am impressed! My brother taught at KSU and my paraprofessional went to school there, too. I think we may live fairly close, as well. I would love for you to stop by my blog sometime! Lola
