Thank you, awards, new products and GIVEAWAY! :)

I don't think that it has ever been this long since I've posted!  I actually took a personal day today to catch up on some things.  1.  I slept in   2.  I registered for a team event in May   3.  I am going to blog stalk and blog!!!!!  I don't even care if I get other things finished!  :)

Get ready- this is going to be a SUPER LONG post!  I'm a talker and I haven't "chatted" in a while!  ;)

Up first for discussion- Thank yous and awards!

Elizabeth from Fun in 4B awarded me with the One Lovely Blog Award!  I'm so honored!  ;)  The word lovely and Danielle are often not in the same sentence.  ;)

Now for the rules for this award:

1. Link back to the blog that gave you this cute award.
2. Pass this award to 15 other lovely bloggers.
3. Follow the person who sent it to you!
I also have a BIG thank you owed to Claire over at first grade smarties.  She nominated me for the Top Ten Award!  ;) 
Now- perhaps it is cheating- but I'm going to award these blogs with BOTH the One Lovely Blog AND Top Ten!!!!!  ;) 

Sarah from Snippets by Sarah. 

Jodi at Fun in First.

Mrs.McKown from Little Literacy Learners.

Traci from Dragonflies in First.

Barbara from Grade ONEderful.

Sheree from Peterson's Pad.

AND MORE... my blogging stamina is down.... :( 

Before I go- here are 3 new TPT products that I submitted.  (I also am working on a recycling unit and finishing up my addition strategies.)

Problem Solving Strategies:
The last Common Core Math Operations and Algebraic Thinking Set:

This has taken me about 7 months to complete!  It has all of the Math Mention newsletters, math skill cards, a class action plan sheet and recording progress for each quarterly math skill, I Can Notebook broken down by quarterly skills and assessments for each broken down quarterly skill. 

On to the GIVEAWAY!  :)  I will be giving away 1 of my products to 3 winners!  ;)  I will draw names on Wednesday March 21st!
