Winter Wonderland Exchange Ready To Begin...just a few spots remain, come join us!!!!!!!!!

Thanks to all who have signed up! If you are sitting on the fence now is the time to jump off and join the fun. Classes from all over the country are participating and even some digitally from Canada! It's easy to participate just pick a winter project, have each student in your class make one or more. Send 20 projects to my address with a short letter that tells about your class, winter in your area, and a bit about your project. You will receive back a package with one project and letter from each participating class. I love getting mail, and I know our children will be very excited when the package arrives at school. There is some concern as to when the projects are due. I know Winter Break is fast approaching - so we could certainly have the projects due mid January. Please answer the following questions so we don't have any duplicates and I have all the information for everyone. I will email all my address this week. Thanks! ~ Maria
(I know the following people wanted to do these projects: Wendy-penguins, Kelly-Abes or Georges, Julie-Liberty, Sarah-hearts, Sharon-sleds, Claire-snowmen, Beth-Matin Luther and Kay-Cesar Chavez Day. No problem if you change your mind, just let me know.)

Be sure to post the following:

    I can't wait. This is exciting.

  2. Hi Maria!

    I've just nominated you for a Leibster Award! Clink the link for my post about it: Leibster Awards

  3. I like the idea of having the due date Mid-January...say Jan. 18th all mailings to you???
    That will give us more time to do a winter activities opposed to a December holiday activity which we are right in the middle of right now, not to mention gifts to parents. I'm not sure I can get it all done by Winter Break.
    If mid-January is the date, count me in!
    I'm still thinking MLK activity, but it might be a snowman activity instead.
    Can I surprise you??

  4. I just got your email & the 20th sounds great to me. I am going to have to change from Abe/George (we do those in February) to Polar Bear/Penguins Dual Craft :) I hope that's ok!

  6. Hi Maria,
    I received both your emails today but am unable to reply via email because you're a "no-reply" commenter :)
    So can you email me again at beleyne@gmail.com (but this time leave me your email address) and I'll answer your questions about the size of your header and your blinkie idea.
    Thanks so much.
