Time to Pamper Yourself! Jamberry Nail Wraps Giveaway!

jamberry nails giveaway

Have a special occasion coming up? Or maybe your daughter has prom this year!

Do you smell that? Take a deep breath….Ahhh…..Yep, that’s the smell of summer. Well – the smell of “almost-summer”. The school year is winding down, we’re thinking about how we’ll be spending those glorious summer months with our family and friends – it’s a thing of beauty! You’ve done so much work this year – heck we all have! And we deserve some TLC, for sure! In the spirit of all things “summer” to come, I’ve put together a little “Teacher Appreciation” giveaway, if you will. Of course, this one’s just for the ladies (sorry guys, although you should enter for that special lady in your life).  

I just became an Independent Consultant with Jamberry Nails (super simple to do, by the way). Jamberry Nail wraps  come in 350+ designs – I’m sure you’ve seen them come across your feeds already! Just to be clear – they’re not false or press-on nails, nor are they nail stickers. They are vinyl nail wraps that adhere to your nail when heat is applied. The best part? They last 1 – 2 weeks on your fingers and up to 6 weeks on your toes and they don’t chip like nail polish does. 

So with the summer season fast approaching, upcoming events like weddings, family reunions, and manys-a-day lounging on the beach (a major job perk) why wouldn’t you want to take a few minutes for a little pampering, after the year you’ve put in! Think of it as a well-deserved pat on the back just from me :)   

So, on to the giveaway!

Click here to enter to win your own set of Jamberry Nail Wraps!

Almost time to kick back and really relax!

It’ll soon be time to kick those shoes off! Don’t you want your toes to be pretty?

 

Good luck everyone and happy pampering!jamberry nails giveaway

NextLesson is a marketplace to discover and manage 21st century projects. It was started by parents, is guided by teachers, and built for students. The folks over at NextLesson are dedicated to the task of building a better tomorrow by working on one simple, driving question, “How can we unleash projects students love?”

The site offers free and priced lessons and projects for all grade levels. Projects on this site offer a unique component as they are very interactive for students and highly engaging.

Math, English Language Arts, History and Science resources are available and are searchable by topic, grade level and the Common Core (which I know is important for those of you who are knee-deep in CCSS).

New resources are constantly being added and are created by teachers, for teachers. Sign up is free and takes just a moment! And guess what?

 

NextLesson has agreed to give one of you a $25 gift card to the site! How awesome is that?

A Middle School Blog Hop Just For You!

This post has TWO very important purposes.

 #1 Thank you to everyone who entered (and contributed to) my Back to School Giveaway. The winners have been contacted (and they’re very excited). Check your email/junk mail - I still have one winner who hasn’t gotten back to me yet – maybe it’s you!

#2 Kristy from 2 Peas And A Dog has generously volunteered to organize a Back to School Blog Hop for Middle Years – complete with freebies and a giveaway! I know, another giveaway SPECIFICALLY for Middle Years. How often does THAT happen? You’re welcome!

Alright. Kristy asked us to share a great tip for Back to School survival in our blog hop posts. My best tip would be to take those first few days to really get to know your kids. I know that you’re behind, almost before you start with the curriculum that you’re expected to cover. However, it’s in those first few days that the middle school students before you will decide what sort of a teacher you are, which will in turn impact the kind of year that you’ll have. That whole “Don’t smile until Christmas” advice from eons ago is simply garbage. Smile. Enjoy yourself. Get to know the dynamic, intelligent and funny people in front of you. Tell them about yourself and your family. I don’t mean take five minutes to introduce yourselves – but really talk to them. Don’t pass out the text books first, please. It can wait. What is more important, a promptly distributed text book or learning a bit about the students you’ll be teaching this year? I do realize that we have to pass out the books as well, I’m just saying don’t start with that. 

So, other than starting the first day with a big coffee and always having a stash of Advil in your desk (let’s face it – you’re going to need it) to survive and thrive this year, I’d say make sure to take QUALITY time to get to know your middle school students. They can be a fickle bunch and being treated with respect is huge for them. Rather than simply talking about respect – might as well start showing it to them right off the bat by having a conversation – asking them questions and really listening to their answers.

One way that I like to get to know my kids quickly, is through student surveys. Enjoy the rest of the hop! Oh, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway below!
