2015 Teacher Tool Gift Exchange

Today Miss Decarbo is having a linkup for the teacher tool gift exchange that happened last Saturday night!

I attended the 2015 Spring Teacher Blogger Meetup in French Lick, Indiana last weekend and I can't be happier that I did! Not only did I get to meet so many of my blogging friends, but I even got to fan out and talk to bloggers that I have been admiring for forever! 
This meetup was hosted by Holly Ehle for the second year now and it was, how do you say... AMAZING!!!

A really nice get to know you activity was a teacher tool gift exchange! My gift came from a beautiful lady that I've known for about a year now... JENNIFER from Stories and Songs in Second.
Jennifer really went all out and was so generous with her gift! We actually joked that I was the perfect person to get her gift because my classroom has a nautical theme... Ready?!

There were stickers, pirate pencils, gold coins, a parrot brother for Shilah, and an awesome book, Port Side Pirates! I was overwhelmed by Jennifer's generosity! 
The really cool thing about this book is that there is a sing-a-long CD that goes with it! 
Our classroom Shilah even has a little buddy to kick it with on my desk! They make a cute couple, don't cha think?

Thank you so much Jennifer for all of these goodies! Both my students and I love them ALL!!!

If you want to tell Jennifer how much you love these things too, or ask her any specifics about them, you can chat with her on her Facebook, Instagram, or Blog

Thanks so much for everything, Jennifer! I hope to see you at the meetup next year! ;)

  9. Ahoy, blogger matey! I am so glad you loved all of your pirate loot! I bought a duplicate book and parrot for my class too, and we loved using both when we read the Magic Treehouse Adventure, Pirates Past Noon! Thanks so much for the wonderful shout outs in your post! May the rest of your school year be smooth sailing! Can't wait for next year's meet-up!
