Best of the Midwest

I’m so excited to be a new resident of Minnesota and get to participate this awesome blog hop and giveaway! What’s better than FREEBIES and a chance to win some great items

Hey Everyone! School is starting right around the corner, even if you don’t want it to be sadly 🙁
Hopefully I’ve got something that can make your day a little brighter.  I was trying to think of ways for students to get excited about reading and the upcoming year and I came up with…..Back to School Bookmarks!

What better way to get excited about reading?! Especially in the younger grades! My plan is to print the bookmarks, cut them out and then have the students decorate the back with their name before laminating! That way each student has it personalized and hopefully it will be lost less than the generic bookmarks!

Hop on over to Learning with Mrs. Leeby to get your next FREEBIE! 🙂 

Here’s what all you can win!   I’m sure you follow most of these awesome blogs below – so enter to win!

    Oh shoot, I couldn't get the link to Mrs. Leeby's blog to work. It just prompted me to pin it…but maybe I'm doing something wrong?

    I couldn't hop over, either. It just wanted me to pin.

    Try clicking on the corner, I didn't realize it was covering up most of it and I couldn't figure out how to remove without doing it for the whole site.

    Thanks for hopping!!
