Incredible New Year Contest!

First of all, I'm way jealous of you all still on break AND I just found out that today is a Federal holiday and I'm working!! What's up with that?? I know my non-teacher friends are quick to remind me I just had two weeks off, yeah, yeah, I'm still gonna pout! If you're pouting too, I may have just the thing to turn that frown upside down...check out this contest! First of all, when I was asked to participate, I said yes immediately, just because I'm always up for a good giveaway, but when I saw the other people who were asked, well, let's just say it was hard to get my jaw off the table. I was blown away to be included in the company of the ladies below. Seriously, some of these girls are my blogging idols!! What a compliment to be included among them. Click {HERE} to enter!

I've also uploaded my latest Bump games for January to TPT, just click on the picture below to grab your free copy. This time I included addition and multiplication in one download. Some of my nuggets are ready to multiply so I put the games back to back in a page protector and they can choose which version to play. Thank you SO much for those of you who already downloaded and left me feedback. Mostly because I wasn't sure if you all wanted another version. I love the concept of the game and now that my kids really know the rules, I leave it out for anyone who has free time. As long as you all still want them, I'm happy to share them. Guess I have an excuse to buy some cute Valentines graphics! Who am I kidding...I was going to buy them anyway. If there is such a thing as a digital hoarder, I could be the poster child.

Well, that took about all the extra energy I could muster up. Is it wrong to wake up thinking about your afternoon nap? Well, if it's wrong, then I don't want to be right...


  1. Love the Bump Games! And it was an honor for me to be included with all of you guys in that great giveaway!

  14. Hi Denise!
    This is my first intro to "Bump"! I plan to use it with some of my struggling sixth graders. Can't wait to try it out. Thanks for sharing!

  15. Denise!!! This is such a cool game! I could definitely use this with my 4th/5th graders that need more basic practice. THANK YOU!!! By the way, love the term digital hoarder...I think I may have similar symptoms :)

  16. Whoo Hoo...I'm loving the 1st grade blog and givaways. This is great. Thanks for sharing...

  17. Whoo Hoo...I'm loving the 1st grade blog and givaways. This is great. Thanks for sharing...

  18. This is great! I'm a first grade newbie. I have been following many of the blogs in the giveaway for the last three months and I continue to discover even more of your blogs each day...2 more before I saw your giveaway. I have become obsessed. I would love to win this giveaway. It would help me so much as I venture more into teaching first graders. Thanks to all of you for creating and sharing your ideas and for re-energizing me. My kids love it and get excited each week as they get new things to play and create!

  19. Hi Denise! I am inspired by so much on your blog! I recently made a couple of Find It Shakers and my students love them! My students also love your Bump games. My students needed more subtraction practice so I created a Subtraction Bump It game, inspired by your games. I was wondering if a could share it on my blog if I link back to your original idea. I am new to this world of blogging and don't know the proper etiquette yet! :)Thanks again for all the inspiration!
