Flat Stanley Unit Giveaway & Award

I don't usually ever blog twice in one day, but it just so happens that I've been sick in bed/on the couch for two days now and had a lot of computer time on my hands :( so it brightened my day when I was awarded the Lovely Blog Award by Tori @ She truly has great ideas! Check her out! I'm so excited to have made some new blog friends!  See the end of this post for my blog award recipients - Hopefully I can brighten their day! Do any of you new bloggers ever get discouraged with how cumbersome and tricky it is to learn the blogging world like I do? Sigh.

 And next up... FLAT STANLEY!  As I said earlier - my kids LOVE him.  I'm so excited to use this integrated all-things-flat-Stanley unit with them in our remaining 2 weeks of school.  You can click the image below to grab the unit on Teachers Notebook, or you can click here to get it on TPT.

Also... I'm going to do a little GiVeAwAY of the unit to the winner of my HUSBAND's random choice next Sunday! :)  Here's what you need to do:  1 - Follow my blog. 2 - Follow my TN or TPT store 3 - Leave a comment.  (PS - If you blog about this giveaway I'll give my husband extra encouragement that you deserve to win:)
Here are a few Flat Stanley crafts we've done:  We read Flat Stanley and the Egyptian Grave Robbery several months ago with our Ancient Egypt Unit and made these cute mummies.  Currently we're reading Flat Stanley and the Japanese Ninja Surprise, so on Friday (by student request) we did some ninja star origami - wouldn't recommend for first graders without additional adult assistant.  Next week we're going to be making ninja masks, but I couldn't resist making mine beforehand and doing a ninja photoshoot with myself some... uh... friends afterschool.  :) 

And FINALLY here are all the FABULOUS blogs that I found and am awarding the Lovely Blog award. It really was fun to sift through so many teaching blogs to find these hidden gems!  Here are the award rules: 

1) Follow the person that gave you the award.  

2) Link back to the person that gave you the award.  

3) Pass the award on to 15 new bloggers.

  10. It is really important to teach the rules and regulation and manners at early age when they are in learning process. While you are teaching them to write always start with the slate and pencil then after use the fountain pen that will make your childs handwriting awesome.
    Other than that the blog is really awesome.
