Day 14 of Teacher Blogging Challenge

Day 14

       is feedback for learning, and how well do you give it to students?

I believe feedback is specific, concise, constructive, and actionable. 

I, unfortunately, am not consistent  with the type of feedback I described. One bigger pieces (paragraph writing, papers, and projects), I do provide at least one positive thing that was done well, and one piece (that fits the above description) that needs improvement.

On small pieces, like processing guides or maps, I generally circle whats wrong, give a prompt or clue to make the kid think about the what wrong, and deduct points. With 139 kids, I just can’t commit that dedicated time to the smaller formative pieces.

ATTENTION: TUMBLR DELETED MY FIRST RAFFLE POST. SO PLEASE REBLOG THIS ONE TO ENTER. I’m so sorry. I hope they don’t delete this one. 

Now, here we go. This is the moment you’ve all been waiting for! A huge fitblr raffle, with everything you’ve ever desired in your quest for healthy living and more! :D But it’s also a raffle. You see, I have to have surgery - to remove the excess skin from my breasts and repair the damage done to them that was caused by losing 70 pounds. The surgery costs $10,000, and no, insurance won’t pay for any of it. As a single 21 year old living in Chicago, with a full time job and trying to run my own business, I still can’t afford it. So, I decided to try and raise money and also giveaway some really awesome stuff! 

Here are the rules/regulations/how to enter: 

  • Must be following me
  • ONE REBLOG ONLY. Extra reblogs do not count and will not get you any extra entries! 
  • Check out my gofundme page here: http://www.gofundme.com/natashas-surgery
  • TO GET EXTRA ENTRIES: DONATE! For every dollar you donate (for some reason, the minimum is $5 and I can’t change that), you will get an extra entry! So $5 gets you 5 entries, $10 gets you 10 entries and so on! 
  • FOR ONE FREE EXTRA ENTRY: Share the link of my gofundme page on Facebook. The website shows me how many shares there are/who shared it, so yeah!
  • This applies retroactively to those who have already donated! So if you’ve already donated, you’re good to go! 
  • Likes do not count! 
  • I will ship internationally! 
  • The winner will be chosen randomly by random.org. 
  • NOTE: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DONATE TO BE ENTERED. You will get one entry by reblogging this post, so even if you don’t donate - you still have a chance!
  • NOTE: If this post gets deleted again, I will have to figure out another way to do this. I’m sorry in advance if that happens again :/

What all is included in the raffle? Well here you go: 

  • Fitness Basics Resistance Band
  • Fitness Basics 65cm exercise ball
  • Fitness Basics women’s athletic gloves
  • Fit N Fresh Lunch on the Go set
  • Fit N Fresh Smart Portion Chill containers
  • Fit N Fresh Vortex Hydrator
  • Halloween Owl themed water bottle
  • FitPlan (like a fitness journal)
  • Nike Speed Jump Rope
  • 1 Nike “Beast” Dri-Fit T-shirt in a women’s Medium.
  • 1 Nike “Eat My Dust” Dri-Fit T-shirt in a girl’s Large (so fits womens small/medium)
  • 1 Nike “Just Say Yes to Endorphins” Dri-Fit T-shirt in a women’s Large
  • 1 pair of Nike Pro compression shorts in a women’s Medium.
  • $50 Whole Foods gift card. 
  • $50 Dick’s Sporting goods gift card. 
  • 2 boxes of organic Clif Bars in the flavor of your choice. 
  • 2 Activate Apparel (the etsy shop) shirts OF YOUR CHOICE, IN YOUR SIZE.
  • 1 pair of Nike Free Runs IN YOUR SIZE, in your preferred color. So whoever wins will give me their size and some color preferences, and I will buy them for you (I work at Dick’s Sporting Goods). 
  • 1 workout outfit of your choice IN YOUR SIZE! Again, just give me your size/color/brand preferences, and I will be your personal shopper for the day! So you will get a top, bottom and sports bra.
  • 1 customized meal/workout plan. 
  • I WILL BE ADDING A TON MORE PRIZES AS TIME GOES ON! 

Oh and one more thing… I will be choosing ten runner-ups to get free meal/workout plans from yours truly (I am a certified personal trainer). 

Awesome right?! This raffle ends on December 1st of 2013 OR if I reach my ultimate surgery goal, whichever comes first. 

So get to reblogging! Good luck! May the Force be with you!
