Teacher appreciation week is coming up, and I wanted to do something to say thank you to each and every one of you on behalf of your students and the communities you serve.

First off, one blog reader will win an autographed copy of ANY book I’ve written (all four options are below) PLUS a $25 gift card to TeachersPayTeachers! You can enter using the Rafflecopter at the end of this post. The contest closes at midnight on Monday, May 4th, and a winner will be selected and notified by email on Tuesday morning.

Giveaway: Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

But I don’t want to just show appreciation to one teacher. I’d like to say thank you to ALL of you who are doing the challenging and important work in the classroom each day. So, I’m making one of my curriculum resources free on Sunday and Monday, May 3rd and 4th.

Your gift: download for free on Sunday and Monday:


I chose to make my Puzzle Strips free because it’s a resource that can be used by any teacher, for any subject area, at any grade level. Once you show students how to use them, the possibilities are limitless and puzzle strips can be integrated into every unit of study, from word problem strategies to grammar practice. You can use them as center materials or as a review/assessment tool…and best of all, kids can create them on their own! Click the preview button here to learn more and see examples.

Be sure to add this product to your TpT wish list and come back on May 3rd-4th to download it for FREE. I’ll also be discounting my entire store 20% from Sunday, May 3-Wednesday May 6th.


You can also visit Laura Candler’s Corkboard Connections. Laura and I have teamed up, and she’s offering the exact same deal on her blog–you can win an autographed copy of one of herbooks plus a $25 TpT gift card, AND she’s giving away one of her products free to ALL teachers!

So, after you’ve bookmarked the Puzzle Strips for your free download on Sunday, enter the giveaway below and head over to Laura’s blog to enter there, as well.
