So who likes giveaways??!!
Does this even need to be a question? Of course we like giveaways… the thrill of typing your name in and the possibility of getting something free is well breathless! Well I say we need to celebrate this new year and my birthday with a giveaway! My birthday is the same day as the distinguished Dr Martin Luther King Jr. so I always get a day off. I tell the kids at school it is because it is my birthday and aren’t they lucky they know me. Well this usually doesn’t work but this year I’m at a school with K-3rd graders so I think my chance of having believers is much better. No disrespect to Dr. King- I do always clue in the kiddos…eventually. Oh and never mind how old I am because I look much much younger and you would be very surprised at my true age. Actually I always forget how old I am and ask my husband because having to do math is so not an SLP thing but now science…. ok ok so I digress. I did start working in the field as an SLP before you needed your masters and I worked for 7 years before deciding to go back to college and get it. Did I tell you I had a toddler and an infant at home then and drove over an hour one way to get to graduate classes? I won’t even tell you what I carried in my back pack! Oh what, you want to know about the giveaway? Why am I doing this? Well…(sorry we are almost there) I have been very lucky winning things in contests like a big wooden cube that is now in our motor room at school, iTune cards, an iTouch, and some other stuff. And I just won an iPad from Tj & Pals facebook giveaway (sorry Genie I know how hard you have been trying!) Finding a dollar in the parking lot after a long night of conferenes and then a quarter in the hallway, being an EdBlog finalist and having it talked about in Points of Pride at the school board meeting and more! I want to pass along some of my luck to you. No I’m not giving away my iPad! How about some app codes instead!
Here’s the deal- I have 5 codes for the Articulate it! app from Smarty Ears. Look back on my posting here for some information on the app. You can also read more about the app in action on the Smarty Ears website. There was just an update this week too! All you need to do is leave a comment about anything or nothing. I will do a random drawing on Saturday 1/14/12.
Oh there is one catch…you know the fine print…. all I ask is you do something nice for someone else. Hold a door, carry someone’s bag, smile, wish them happy birthday, pick up the gum wrapper that missed the trash can, pay my taxes (ok I tried to slip that in but nevermind!) or any small gesture to make someone smile.
