There’s a LOT going on with this event, so let me break it down to you visually.

Twenty amazing teacher-bloggers are celebrating the fact that it is almost time to go back to school. (I know, I know, but hear me out!) We all love summer, but it’s time to start thinking about getting back to school. We have decided we all will need some fun to break up all those days of professional development and endless meetings, mixed with late nights and weekend spent decorating your classroom. So for the next 10 days, we are celebrating with freebies and a prize a day! Yes, we said a PRIZE A DAY… FOR 10 DAYS. Even if you’re not a math teacher, you can figure out that that’s TEN prizes up for grabs!

To keep it fun and exciting, you won’t know what prize you have entered to win until the winner is announced the next day!
