Teacher Appreciation Jackpot- May 6, 2012

Announcing the Teacher Appreciation Jackpot Linkup!

Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week, and Sunday, May 6th is sure to be your lucky day! I'm excited to announce the very first Teacher Appreciation Jackpot, an amazing "blog hop" event involving over 125 bloggers! This page is your starting point for the Grades Pre-K - 2 blog hop, and you can find links to the other levels in this blog post.

All of us wanted to show our appreciation for you in a BIG way, so we've all agreed to give away one of our TeachersPayTeachers products for free on that day! Each free gift will be valued at between $3 and $8, so the total jackpot amount is estimated to be over $600!

Because so many bloggers are participating, this event will be divided into three grade level groups. Each of those smaller events is being coordinated by one blogger as shown below:
The big day is not until Sunday, but why not take a look at the items in my TeachersPayTeachers store right now? You've probably heard that there's going to be a massive sale on TpT in honor of Teacher Appreciation week, so feel free to load up your shopping cart now. You don't have to worry that you may end up paying for an item if I make it free; if a product in your cart later becomes free, you won't pay anything for it at checkout. Trust me on this!
Look below to find links to over three dozen terrific Grade Pre-K-2 blogs where you can download your free gifts on Sunday! We appreciate your commitment to your students and your dedication as an educator! It's our pleasure to give away something for free, and many of us will also be offering 20% off our whole store from from May 6th through the 8th. Thanks so much for all you do!

My free gift to you is: Economics: A Unit about Goods and Services, Consumers and Producers (typically a $5 item in my store). Click below to download your free item! (Item will not be free until Sunday, May 6th)
