After a great meal, we swapped teacher tools. Thank you, thank you, thank you for my teacher tool! I love it!! Sharpies and TPT giftcard....who could ask for more :)
Then....drumroll....everyone (EVERYONE) at the meet-up won a giveaway prize! WHAT!!!?!! It was so exciting and there were so many great products. Here is my prize:
After the giveaway, there were more prizes. Yes....MORE prizes by so many great sponsors.
These are brand-new, not on the shelf markers and pens!!
Okay....there were fantastic prizes and teacher tools but you may be wondering, "what did I learn from this meet-up?" LOTS. But I will stick to three main things that I learned from my fellow bloggers.
Instagram. You may not know this about me...but I still have an "old-fashioned" cell phone. Basically, I can call, text, and take pictures with my phone; therefore, Instagram has not been on my radar. But I learned the importance of really connecting as teachers/bloggers through this social media. So I am now on Instragram, but am still working out how to integrate it into my life. We will see how that goes.
Windows Live Writer. My friend Jenny, from Luckeyfrog's Lilypad, has mentioned how much easier it is to write a blog post using Windows Live Writer. She walked us through the steps of this program. I can really see why she uses this to write her posts! I still need more practice, but may be jumping on this bandwagon very soon. Thanks Jenny!!
WELL....now it is your turn!! One winner gets all of these prizes below (and MORE!) The Rafflecopter to enter for all these goodies is at the end of the hop! To enter...just keep hopping :)
