I know in many places spring has not marched in like a lion yet! I really do apologize to those of you who I saw were in the throes of a few more inches of snow this weekend!! I am not one of those since I am sitting in 70's sunny spring California weather! I do know that snow can continue into April as I grew up in Tennessee and actually had that happen... we even lost spring break!!! Talk about cruel!

Regardless of where you live, I am so excited to share some great products along with a $40 gift card to TPT with you!!!! Yes, you did read correctly... $40!! I have so many items on my wish list that I secretly wish I could win!!!!!  All you need to do, is simply follow our stores from one to the other and when you reach Ladies with Class, you will have the opportunity to enter the rafflecopter for a $40 TPT gift card!! Don't forget to pick up the free goodies along the way and we would love you forever if you took the extra few seconds to leave feedback!!

Ladies with Class is a collaboration between educators throughout the country. We all teach in different school environments, grade levels, with different populations, but the one thing we have in common is our desire to be the best educators we can for our students! Come along and meet us!

In case you missed my original post about linking literature with art, here's your 2nd chance link!  I love linking art and writing in my classroom. I don't know how it is in your classroom, but my students will practically beg for art! We have a project weekly that we work on so I have learned how to cure that begging bug, but I am so energized by their desire and enthusiasm to create and let their artistry flow. 

For joining us in our First Ever blog hop with Ladies with Class, free for the next 3 days is my Spring QR Code Writing Cube with 6 spring prompts for your students to freely respond to. This item will only be free during the hop!  All you need is a device that has a QR Code reader installed on it.  Once you have the app, the rest is simple! Open the app, roll the cube, scan the code and respond to the prompt! You can have students write directly in the Notes app and then email it or take a picture and send to you.  You can also always have them write onto any themed or unthemed paper of your choice!  Your students won't even realize how much they are writing due to the overall engagement of integrating technology!!

March your way on over to Looney's Literacy for more goodies! Don't forget to ROARRRRRR your way over to our Rafflecopter to enter for a chance for a $40 TPT gift card!!!!!  Click on Looney's Literacy button to head to next location!
