Fixed and a Giveaway!

Well….I’ve learned a lesson. Don’t delete pictures from Picasa. Even if you never use Picasa. Because apparently they are linked to your blog and all your pictures will be gone and the links will be broken.
I spent 3 hours or so going back and uploading the pics again to Picasa and then going through each post and re posting each picture. Ugh. At least I’ve only been blogging for 6 months. So there weren’t too many posts I had to go back and re fix.
 Let me know if you see any broken pictures or links that don’t work!

And now for a giveaway!
So many bloggers have helped me when I have questions and can’t seem to figure out stuff so I want to give back!
I’ve created a new math pack all about making combinations of 5 and 10. These are important anchor numbers for kids to know and will help them later on when they begin to use a variety of strategies when solving problems.
The 26 page packet comes with a variety of math games designed to help students learn the combinations that make 5 and 10. Students will use dot patterns, finger patterns and numbers to make different combinations.

Check it out!

I make most of my stuff in black and white and then just print on coloured cardstock! It saves ink and I like the look better.

So here’s the deal. There are 2 ways to get this awesome possum pack.

1. Write a blog post about the giveaway. If you write a post on your blog and mention my giveaway……..I WILL SEND YOU THE PACK FOR FREE!!! All you have to do is write a post about it, link it back to my giveaway and then leave a comment on my blog saying that you shared my giveaway and leave your name, email and the URL of the blog post. I will then email you the pack for free! To say thanks!

  24. New follower here. Would it be possible for us to pin the giveaway instead of blog? I am a blogger, but only use it for parents/children in my classroom.
    Thanks!
