EDExpo 2015 Top 10 Teacher Blogger Products

Hey yall! Happy Monday!
 
I'm here to share with you today all of the amazing new products that I got to explore at the EDExpo 2015 last weekend in Atlanta. Each blogger got to visit each booth and speak with the vendors about their newest products. Then we each came up with an individual top 10 list, which were compiled to create the Top 10 Products for 2015.
 
 
 
Here are all the lovely bloggers that I got to spend the weekend with (minus a few who were still exploring!)

 
Ready for the products? Hold on to your britches, because there is some seriously awesome stuff here!
 
I like a countdown, so let's start at 10.

Fiddle Focus took the #7 spot
These are so great for those students with sensory issues!

The F.U.N. Empty Number Line was #5 - a great way to make math interactive for your kiddos!

The #4 spot also had a tie - Goldieblox and Boinks Fidgets!
Another great STEM product, this one geared specifically towards girls, and also another product to help students with busy fingers.

Taking the #3 spot is the Say It! game by Felix Fun.
This game is so much fun and an easy way to get in those vocabulary terms!

#2 was the Reading Game - great for primary kiddos!

And the #1 product, according to teacher bloggers, was the Touchtronic Numbers & Letters by Junior Learning. These work with an iPad and were super fun!

Atlanta Blogger Meet Up

Hey yall! TGIF, right???
 
It's been a LONG week....so long, that today is the first day I've had a second to sit down and tell you about my amazing trip last weekend!
 
I had the opportunity to attend the 2015 EDExpo in Atlanta as a teacher-blogger with some other bloggers (be sure to check back soon for more info about this!), and we had a fun meet up while we were there!
 
Since we're native to Georgia and we had to show a little Southern hospitality, a few other peaches and I worked together to throw a little shindig for our bloggy buddies.
 
What. a. NIGHT!
 
I was blown away when over 50 amazing teachers showed up!
We talked, gave away prizes, talked, ate, talked, drank, talked.
And then we taught all our Northern buddies how to say "yall" in their best accent :)
 
Here are a few ton of pictures from the meet up.
I bet you would recognize some of these gorgeous faces!

 
 













 
Here are some of the amazing prizes that we gave away!
A HUGE thank you to Blair from Blair Turner Paper, Kimberly from KG fonts, Krista from Creative Clips, Nikki from Melonheadz, Kaci from Mrs. Hoffer's Spot, Educents, and Peach State Pride.
