March Madness, Y’all!

Hope y’all had a good weekend!  I was stuck at home taking care of my little bitty.  Baby boy was diagnosed with pneumonia and we’ve been trying to get him better!!  DANG!!  That stuff is scary!  Thankfully he’s on the mend and getting better with each dose of antibiotic.  Spring can’t get here soon enough!! 

Speaking of Spring, I’ve got a fun little “get excited about March” giveaway for y’all.  I’m teaming up with Jodi at Fun in First to give away TWO big ol’ packets FULL of March fun!!  The lucky winner will win Jodi’s March Reading Supplement Packet and my March Madness Mega Pack of Literacy & Math Activities!!  Fun, right?! 

zzzgiveaway

Jodi’s item is a 4-week reading supplement packet including 41 pages of fluency passages, vocabulary, comprehension questions, home connections, and a literacy activity to go with each passage. 

My item is a 105 page packet full of seasonal, hands-on math & literacy activities including word sorts, literacy games, graphing, word problems, writing/art activities, and more! 

ONE lucky winner will win BOTH packets! 

So let’s get this party started already!!  Here’s what you need to do to enter this little giveaway…

* Become a follower of Fun in First & The First Grade Parade

*Follow BOTH my TpT store & Jodi’s TpT store

Then leave a comment letting me know you’re following all 4!!

For an extra entry…
