Tasty Tuesday Giveaway!

I should totally be doing lesson plans or some such teachery-thing, but yet here I am blogging. This is after I spent a while Pintrest-ing (is that a word yet?). I seriously still feel like I'm just treading water as we start to wrap up our second week of school. I think next year I should start to actually DO some of the amazing stuff I collect all year before school actually starts. Seems to me I said this to myself last summer...

I'm really trying to be all sunshiny and focus on the good stuff about being a public school teacher, which is of course the whole reason for this here bloggin thing. I knew the budget cuts would be bad, but holy mama, bad's not the word. It's Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown bad! Ugh. I know you are all feeling the pinch too so I won't elaborate, even though there are some serious clouds getting in the way of my sunshine.

When I'm feeling down, I usually reach for a snack. {This has caused a whole 'nother problem, eek!} But since I can't share a snack with you all, I get to keep all the Sugar Daddies to myself, ha! However, I would like to share something yummy with you in the best way I can. How about a sweet little contest?

This one is as easy as pie (ba dum dum!) I crack myself up. I would love to give away a copy of my Tasty Tuesday writing program to a lucky blog reader. If you are a fairly new reader, check out this post to see what it looks like in action. I sell this on Teachers Pay Teachers for $15 and it basically includes everything you would need to have a successful Tasty Tuesday program in your classroom (including permission to share with your entire grade level!). Download the free preview here to take a peek.
Basically, once a month we copy a recipe, make it, eat it and write about it. The idea itself wasn't mine originally, but all of the recipes, forms and program tweaks are definitely my own creation.

To enter just leave me a comment on this post. That's it my friends! Just say hi, tell me why you like hanging here with me, share a good joke, funny moment, why you'd like Tasty Tuesday or anything to help keep us looking on the sunny side of things!

If you're already a follower thanks bunches. Feel free to invite some friends to the party. If a new follower leaves a comment and lets me know that you sent them, you'll both win a copy!

I'll choose a winner using random.org from all entries received before Monday, September 5 at midnight, EST.

  1. I would love to win the Tasty Tuesday pack! I used to do Fun Fridays about 2 times a month and the kids would make something to eat, but with specials on Friday, it is too hard to fit it in! Thanks so much!

  3. This is such a cute idea!!! Do you have any examples of some of the other "Tasty" things you can make. I just wanted to get a sense, before I purchased it.

  7. I would love to do a Tasty Tuesday! I will even find a way to get it past all the RULES! I haven't taught 2nd grade in 14 years and I feel like a brand new teacher! I love reading your blog (and everyone else's) so I can get good ideas. My grade level isn't the best at sharing, but I just love the bloggers. Thanks!

  8. Love this idea. I am new to second this year 14 years in first and the last 2 in 3rd. I find your blog really supportive and gives me hope that this will be a good change.

  10. Tasty Tuesday is inspiring! (Your entire blog is pretty inspiring!) I just moved to 4th grade after teaching 2nd grade for 8 years. I would love to win this because I see how easily it would be to adapt for kids a little older. With all of the testing done in school, fun and creative ideas like this are just what we need - - the kids are so engaged in how much fun they are having they forget they are actually learning! :D

  12. We used to do Fun Fridays where we would create something that went with our Open Court story for the week. With standardized testing and all of its stress, we did away with it. This is such a great way for the kids to have fun, learn, and practice for testing without even knowing it. Plus, what a great way to involve the parents. The students will go home and tell their parents how much fun they had at school instead of dreading doing homework. Thanks so much for sharing a wonderful idea!

  13. I love the concept of Tasty Tuesday. My class actually cooked some soft pretzels in the shape of the first letter of their last name so I guess we kind of did a Tasty Wednesday : ). I love how much science math and literacy you can fit in a cooking activity and how much the kids enjoy it! jmfridmn (at) aol (dot) com

  19. I love your blog! Tasty Tuesday sounds like fun! :) I could use something fun because my class right now is a tough one. A- i'm gonna go to the bathroom but pee in the garbage there instead of a stall- tough one! :) Have a good holiday weekend! :)

  20. I would love a copy of your Tasty Tuesdays! I'm new to second grade this year after looping with my firsties and am looking for some new activities to do with them since they've already done my go-to's. Plus...I LOVE to cook in the classroom but always struggle with the lack of heating elements and equipment. :)

  21. This sounds so awesome! My kids love eating.... as do I, so they would love this. Also while I'm here, I wanted to tell you how much all my students, parents, and fellow teachers in my building LOVE the clip chart I got from you! You are the bomb dot com. :)

  25. Cute idea! I can tell you something that one of my kindergarten students said. He didn't mean it as a joke, he was serious... During science I asked, "Who can tell me something that floats?" He replied,"POOP!"

  30. Tasty Tuesday looks great - what a fun way to do some writing. I agree with you, it is a difficult time to be a public school teacher. It's hard to see support taken out of the schools that is so desperately needed by our kids. Hopefully, things can turn around soon! Good luck!

  31. I would love a copy of this. Here in Australia we are just coming out of a long cold winter. Your ideas would be greatly appreciated.

  32. I would love a copy of this - what a great way to get my firsties excited about writing! My school does not even have a budget yet as we are STILL waiting on official test scores. Thank goodness for my home laminator and the stack of construction paper and art supplies I got from a Donorschoose project last year!

  50. I am a new follower and think that is such a wonderful idea to add to my writing block! I often try to use classroom experiences to help springboard our writing (i.e carving a pumpkin, making applesauce, etc..) this would be a great resource!!!!

  51. I just wrote a grant for basic cooking materials! I'd love to have some kid-friendly tried-and-true recipes! Here's my funny story . . .
    One of my kids showed up wearing a stocking cap to school this week. Yes, a stocking cap . . . in August . . . in Missouri . . . during a heat wave. I asked him to take off his hat. Its not a hat, he insisted. Against my better judgement I finally asked what it was. He responded: Its a sweater for my head! Aww. . . I love when they are still sweet and innocent at the beginning of the year.

  53. Thanks for all that you share. I LOVE cooking with my kids... my funny story - last year we were making pudding for the letter Pp. And I am showing the kids our tools and ingredients, and one darling asked me why I was using a stick? And I asked her what she meant; she then pointed to my wooden spoon. We then had a very interesting and enlightening discussion about different types of equipment people use while cooking.

  55. I love your blog! Thank you so much for sharing all of your wonderful ideas. I feel your pain about the budget cuts. It's sad when I know several teachers that have had to file bankruptcy and others that have foreclosed on their houses. Keep your chin up and remember our real reasons for doing this job and that it could always be worse!

  56. I'm a new follower! I just stumbled onto your blog from blog hoppin' and I think Tasty Tuesday sounds like such a cute idea! It is so hard to find time for all the fun teaching stuff but with this including math, science, reading and writing how can you go wrong? :)

  57. Ooo! We love to eat in my classroom! This sounds like such a fun reason to write, love it! Here's my little funny: At Orientation when a couple of my new firsties were walking around the classroom I heard one say to the other. "Cool, a microwave. Look! She's got a microwave!" I guess he doesn't have a microwave at home?!? Ha!

Hope this works since I took the time to type it all out...fingers crossed.
