Product Swap

Mrs. Stanford came with a great idea, to swap products from our TPT stores, she will find you a partner and you are going to swap products, but you must print, laminate, and even work with them, grab a kid into the process. How Cool sounds that!!!!! I leave you more info:

1. Email  (it is still ok for people to email... I'll send them to the form :)

2. As soon as you receive a swap partner from Jessica please email them immediately with the product name that you would like to review from their store.

3. After receiving the product from your swap partner print, laminate (if possible), and/or create the product. Take pictures throughout the process if possible. Make the product look its best!!

4. Write and schedule a review of the product blog post for August 1 at 12:00 noon EST and once it posts link it to the linky that will appear on

5. The post should include (but should not be limited to):
- a button to the blog of the creator of the product at the top of the post
- a picture of the product with a link to their tpt store
- a few pictures of the product put together/being 'used' ( i know most of us aren't in school, but even if we fill it out or find a kiddo to do it would be great)
- a raving review to draw new buyers to their store!

I have been nominated!!!!!

Wow!!!!!!! Melissa from More Time 2 Teach, nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award!!!!! I'm so happy, thanks a lot Melissa : )

Now I have to follow some really easy rules:

1.Thanks the blogger who nominated you. Done!

2. Include a link to their site. Done!

3. Include the award image in your post. Done!

4. Give 7 random facts about yourself. mmmm, let's see:

    * I love to stalk read other teachers blogs. They inspire me, and have changed my way of teaching, thanks a lot!!!!

    * I spent half of my teaching time with one 4th grade class, the one I blog about, and the other half with my incredible 6th graders!!!! I should blog about them too, but then I will have to start another blog, and I'm not feeling comfortable with this one yet, I have too much to learn ; )

    * I'm a book worm, I love to read, read, and read everything that I can grab that's written in English.

    * I speak Spanish, I learned English as a second language since elementary school, I have studied it my whole life, but is thanks to the teacher's blog that I follow that I have become more fluent both oral and writing. So once more thank you!!! By the way if I have mistakes is because I'm still learning.

    * Eventhough I was born in Mexico, I'm in love of the U.S., and I think that is why my kiddos love it too.

    * I'm addicted to scrapbooking. I have only made two complete albums, and I'm planning to work on more. Don't you love to look at the pictures in such beautiful displays?

    *I love vanilla scented candles, I have them all over my home, but I can't light them too often, my kids and DH don't like them a lot : (

After sharing a little bit about myself I have to nominate 15 other blogs, difficult task as I follow so many great ones, so well here we go:



A Cupcake for the Teacher

Confessions of a Fourth Grade Teacher

A Differentiated Kindergarten 

Tonyas Treats for Teachers 

Third Grade Bookworm 
4th Grade Frolics
