Best of the Midwest!

Last week we had our Minnesota Nice blogger get together.  I had to chance to meet these lovely teachers.
 It was so nice to talk and compare notes on everything teaching.  We also decided to work on something fun together.

I am so excited to announce our Best from the Midwest Freebie Blog Hop and Giveaway!


First, here is my freebie!  I make transportation tags for my students to put on their backpacks.  These are meant to be put in name badge holders.  I bought mine at Walmart for only $1.97 for a pack of 12.  I also picked up a pack of little zip ties.

I then made my tags to fit exactly inside the badge holders.
I'll add my students' names and transportation information once I get my class list. I put my name and room number on the bumper. 
They are black and white but I copies them on purple paper.  Each team number has a different color to make it easy for hallway helpers on the first few days of school.

Just zip tie the tag to their backpack and you're set!

To get your freebie, click below.

Head on over to my friend, Amber's blog to get your next freebie.
She is a BRAND new resident of Minnesota!

Don't forget to also enter our Best From the Midwest Giveaway, too!

Here is what you could win from the giveaway!
