Spring Blogger Meet-Up Blog Hop

A couple weeks ago, I headed down to French Lick, Indiana to meet up with some AMAZING teacher bloggers. This wasn't just a little lunch meet up, this was a first class event. Holly from Mrs. Ehle's Kindergarten Connections knows how to throw a party! 


Check out this hotel! Holy Moly! And this is a hotel in INDIANA no less!

Some teachers made an entire weekend of the meet-up, but I was only able to attend on Saturday. We had lunch and chatted. It was exciting to be in a room of like-minded educators! We even exchanged notes of what works, what doesn't work, and lots of fun facts, too! 






I learned about laser fingers that I can use with my kids to help with fluency! SCORE! LOVE these!









I also learned about phonto, an app that allows you to use your own fonts for your pictures. This will be great especially since I love fun fonts!

Oh, and have you heard of Frixion gel pens? I hadn't, but boy I'm glad I know now! Fun colors AND they are erasable! Doesn't get much better than that! 


There were fantastic sponsors of this awesome event as well and we all got tons of goodies from them. And . . . here's the GREAT NEWS! You can score these goodies for yourself! All you need to do is continue hopping through this blog hop until you find your chance to win them for yourself! You could win a Vera Bradley bag (I'm loving mine), a gift certificate for an Erin Condren product or Jamberry Nails, goodies from Crayola, Boogie Boards, Scentos, Creative Teaching Press, and Kaeden Books. That's a lot of awesomeness! 



Well, what are you waiting for? Hop on over to see Heather and find the hidden treasure!
