 Amazing Gifts Have Arrived From Miss L

A while back I entered a contest ~ and won! It was Miss L's 1 Year Blogiversary. She promised a Mystery Prize Package made specially for the winner. Well she certainly delivered on that promise! Pictures speak 1000 words they say so ...

First, the treats that keep every teacher going. Coke (you will noticed that it is gone already) chocolate and that extra special gift card every loves! I love the French on the Coke and candy.

A mountain of my favorite school supplies. A large Canadian smelly marker (how fun), a variety of Post-its, 2 packs of ladybug push pins, retractable whiteboard markers (I've never seen them before), cool, fun pens, and 2 awesome containers to store everything on my desk.

An awesome mug to enjoy my hot chocolate in while wearing my new, red (favorite color) homemade scarf.

Last, but not least, my favorite item ~ a Canadian hockey puck!
Yes, hockey is my favorite sport to watch, although I have to admit I am a Penguins fan. Go Pens!
Still love the Canadian Puck!
Miss L is still a university student (graduating this Spring) but you would never know it from reading her blog. She has much to offer all teachers. I especially like her posts that contain helpful information on using technology in the classroom. She is even presenting at a conference why blogging is important for teachers. Be sure to take a look at her blog!
Thank you Miss L you will always have a friend in Pennsylvania!

 Canada, Ohio, and Michigan

Sorry for the delay in posting these. Our dear friends from Canada sent their project electronically. I will be printing it and including their project in your package. Packages also arrived from two of the Great Lakes states ~ Michigan and Ohio! By the way this summer on vacation we explored the Great Lakes and surrounding states. They have some of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. We are getting close to having all the packages. My students get so excited when the mail comes! They love finding the states on the map. I can't believe how this project has made our country real to them.


Michigan ~ gotta love the duct tape!

That's all for today... I am sure there are several packages waiting for me at school. Can't wait till Monday!
A huge thanks to Andrea of Mrs. Forehand's Phenomenal Firsties for answering my picture question.
To add pictures quickly and easily from my phone I followed her directions. I added Blogger to my phone, signed in, pushed on the pencil icon, filled in post title, then pushed on the camera icon, took picture, pressed use, and repeated for all the pictures I wanted. Rather than complete the post on the phone, I saved it as a draft and completed it on the computer. Much, much easier than the old way. Thanks ~ Andrea!
