Giveaway! I for isosceles and K for kidsmathteacher!

Hey everyone!  I'm finally having my blogiversary giveaway!

But first, I am a day behind on the A to Z blogging challenge so I am doubling up today with I and K.

I is for isosceles!  Okay, call me funny but I love triangles.  I thought it was so neat when I found out in junior high that there were different names for them and all about the angles and sides.  Here is how I would have drawn an isosceles triangle before I knew about the cool shortcuts (on the left).  Then on the right is with the equilateral marks (looks so much better!).
A fun triangle activity to do with kids is take any line segment (like a 10" thin strip of paper) and cut it twice to make 3 sections and put the ends together to form a triangle.  See how everyone's triangle is different!  Do the kids know that the interior angles of all of their triangles adds up to 180 degrees?

Now onto K--for Kids Math Teacher!  Okay, I was thinking of doing kite (another geometry term) but then I decided to highlight my blogiversary.  A lot has happened over the last year and I never really thought I would have accomplished so much.  There were days when a lot got done and other days that weren't nearly as productive, but the year went well!

In the past year...

  • I designed and continued to make my blog design a little better (I did it myself--and that was a big learning curve). 
  • I opened up shops on TpT, TN, and BST
  • I started a Pinterest account
  • Made a facebook fan page
  • Learned how to do more graphic design work (I knew a little)
  • Worked on revising several manuscripts and selling one as a printable book.
  • Had some great guest bloggers on here
  • Started a Google + community called Elementary School Teachers
  • I have met great, supportive bloggers and followers just like you!
Wow!  What a year!  I know every blogger progresses at a different pace, I'm slower than some and I know I may be faster than others.  Here are my stats for the past year...
Thanks for making is a great year!  As a thank you I am having a giveaway that will end next Friday at midnight Pacific.

Here are the three prizes!
  1. 6 pack of Lollipics with your custom image!  They will look something like this...

  2. 1 copy of Trouble with Monkeys: A place value story (an original printable book)
