Blog Hoppin' and Mentor Textin'!

Hey friends! I hope you're having a good weekend! I'm enjoying my LONG weekend, and starting this Sunday off with a fun Blog Hop!

Diane and Amelia are celebrating some huge milestones, and they want YOU to be big winners!

You could win THE best sharpener ever... AND a laminator, sticker maker, or $25 gift card! WOWEE!! 

If you are visiting and just hearing about the hop, click on Fifth in the Middle's Button above to start from the beginning (there is a little scavenger hunt to complete)! 

If you are here on the hop, make sure you follow each blog on the hop for the rafflecopter, too!

Good luck! I hope one of my awesome readers is the winner!!! :) :)
Next up, I want to share about one of my favorite mentor texts to read!
I mentioned it on Tuesday in this post, and said I needed to make a unit for it because I do love it so much! There is just so much you can use this book for, soooooo I'm working on the unit now, but here is a little freebie for inferring to tie you over until it's done. :) Feedback is always appreciated if you download it!
I'll let you know when the whole unit is done, and of course, give away a few to my loyal readers! :o)

Click below to head over to the Collaboration Cuties to see other mentor text link-ups and to get to the next stop in the blog hop:
