$25 Appreciation TPT Gift Card Giveaway


I started this whole online teacher journey life about 6 months ago. When I got my first few non real life friend followers on Instagram and FB, I was thrilled. I remember trying so hard to get 50 followers on TPT. My blog was almost non existent. But 6 months later, I am thrilled with how my teacher blogging/TPT journey has grown, but with sooo much room for more great things to come. First and foremost, I've gotten to know so many teachers. I think that has to be the coolest thing! I saw the rally and support we provide each other, when I held a fundraiser for a friend with cancer. I was just a few months in on TPT and Instagram, but over 80 teachers donated to the fundraising bundle!

As a big ol' Thank YOU to everyone for being so supportive, I am holding a quick Rafflecopter giveaway. 

You will get $25 dollars to spend on TPT! I wish I could tell all my school parents to get me that for the end of the year gift...haha. Will TPT barter gift cards for all the body lotion I got? 

Just enter below and I will pick a winner Monday night!

  2. Congratulations! This year we didn't have an end of year as we were out on strike. Yesterday school officially ended. One wonderful gift was baking from one of my little grade 2 girls and her family at the picket site.

    1. Hi Charlene! You guys were on strike at the end? Wow, so what happens in that case? School just kind of unofficially ends?

  3. Congratulations! I think it's awesome all of you bloggers help friends in need. You all rock! I work at a Title 1 school so I get a lot of Dollar Tree items :). My favorite, and I haven't killed it yet, is a blue orchid that one of the families game me. It's gorgeous (I hope I don't kill it..I tend to do that with indoor plants).

    1. Thank you!! lol about the plant because whenever a student gives me a plant, it dies pretty quickly. This year. someone gave me a plant after spring break. so I just made that kid in charge of watering it because I knew I couldn't keep up with it.

    1. Good idea about making a keepsake book because I never know what to do with all the letters and cards I get from students all year long! I could even probably just get an album and put them in there. Thanks for the idea!

  12. My favorite to give is books. Sometimes that book is the only one in the house. My favorite to receive is a half eaten candy bar. I was upset the day before and the student gave me the candy bar the next day. I came from the heart since this is all that he had to give.

  29. Our room moms usually take charge of this. This was my first full year of being Mrs. Lyons...each kiddo took a picture of their face and made a lion around it. They also wrote what they loved most about their year. Such a cute sentimental gift! included was a very nice visa gift card...but the lions were much more appreciated. :)

  33. Congratulations on your wonderful success in such a short time. I have been retired for 8 years now, but I own a small tutoring business. I received a gift card to Subway, and my husband and I really enjoyed that. I am having so much fun this summer finding free materials to send in to my office for my tutors to use with my students. Unfortunately, I have cancer and am going through radiation :(, so I am not tutoring, but want to stay involved. Thanks for your great giveaway.

  42. I only received one gift this past year. It was a notepad holder in my favorite color (turquoise) with rhinestones! It has a little pen holder on the side. It was very thoughtful, as I didn't expect anything, as I teach in a 83% free/reduced lunch building. It's even more special to me, because it came from a sweet, sweet student. I saw her less than a week after school let out, because of very sad circumstances. Her father was murdered :( I just held onto that sweet girl as she sobbed. Ugh, awful!

  46. I didn't get any end of year gifts. I am a Reading specialist and sometimes only have students for a few months of the year. Also, my school has a lot of families that are very poor.

    So, my favorite gifts were hugs from students and promises to keep reading over the summer.
