Thankyou, Ipad and freebie!

What an amazing sale for Cyber Monday and Tuesday. A BIG THANKYOU to everyone who supported my store! Not only have I now reached and surpassed my end of year goal but I have also reached my goal for buying an Ipad! I was sure I wasn't going to be able to get it until next year, but I am the proud owner right now! Here it is, I'm just a tad excited!
Just ignore the bags under my eyes, it's been a long week! And I still have camp next week!

So a huge THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU to each and everyone of you who have purchased something from me, now I have an Ipad to show for it and way too much clipart! TpT really does change lives!

So now I need some advice from you all - I have some apps already loaded for the classroom and now plan to go through my pinterest board to see everything I pinned for "when I get an Ipad", but do you use an app that you absolutely love? I am especially looking for great Listen to Reading books for Grades 3/4 children.

If you haven't popped over to my store recently, I recently uploaded this freebie of game pieces (pawn and bishop) and dice for use in your resources. Click on the picture below to download the pack.
P.S. Funny Story! I had a first today, we had a HOT day timetable at lunchtime! It was too hot to let the children go outside so we stayed in all lunch and played games. Since today was my yard duty day it worked out perfectly! NOT looking forward to Summer at all! Does anyone have any snow they can send over? Or at least cold thoughts?

  1. Congrats on reaching your goal Alison! I don't have an iPad but looking at maybe getting myself one for Christmas. I'll check back for some great apps that others recommend.

  2. Congrats on reaching your goal, Alison! I love my iPad, so I understand the excitement! Anytime I find app recommendations I also save them to my Diigo account - you're welcome to take a look: http://www.diigo.com/user/noveltea/Apps

    We also had a HOT day timetable instead (and really, it was just not pleasant outside!). I'm really not a hot day person, so I'm looking forward to going to the U.S. over Summer. (At least when it's cold you can warm up easily!)

    1. Thanks Stef! I will definitely check your account out! Ta! I'm glad we weren't the only one with a hot day timetable! How exciting to go to the US over Summer, I was hoping to go too to visit Grandma, but I don't think it's going to work...... I totally agree, you can always warm up!

  3. So excited for you Alison!
    We didn't have a Hot day timetable, although I think we hit 40 C today and there were many "How hot is it?" comments from some of our littlies. I didn't mind the heat, I don't like Winter, brrrr.
    Bring on playing under the sprinkler, yay!

  4. Yeah Alison! Great job! I got my Ipad after last quarter - how great is TPT? Definately like the page called "Smart Aps for kids" on Facebook - they have great free apps every day. Another source of some good free ones is called "Apps Gone Free" - get it from the ap store. It has about 8 free apps each day.
    Not looking forward to the heat tomorrow - we have our school fete eek!
