What is going on in Blog Land? - Queen of the First Grade Jungle

What is going on in Blog Land?

My favorite thing about blogging so far is the friendships I have been able to make.  It sounds crazy to say, but I really do believe I have made some genuine friends through the computer. Hey if Match.com says 1 in 5 marriages starts online, who says we can't make great friends that way too!
Forgive me- I have been in a training all day and my brain is slightly fried.

Any who- the other day I joined a FB group for teachers (thanks Hadar!) and someone responded to a post of mine by saying she had spent 12 years teaching in my small town.  After a few conversations, we realized that Michelle taught at the same school I student taught at, and we have a few mutual friends! Total small world moment!  After finding her blog, I spent a long time looking through her previous posts and was very impressed! Check out this fantastic freebie below:

Go check Michelle out for yourself- lots of great ideas!

No Monkey Business

Next we have Lisa from Learning is Something to Treasure. I happened upon her from a suggestion by Hadar again (sheesh that girl is a wealth of knowledge).

Learning is Something to Treasure

Lisa is new to blogging, but already a pro at this freebie business. Click on the pictures to check out her shop.

My phone literally just buzzed to let me know that she just posted 2 more fantastic freebies!

 And last but not least Mrs. Wheeler asked if I would help her out on a giveaway and of course I said yes!

 She is giving away my Surf's Up literacy activities so go check it out!

  3. Katie,
    Thanks for the very kind words above. I truly do consider you a dear friend. It was a nice surprise and a small piece of "back home" when I found out where you were from. :-) I'll be headed that way to VISIT this summer. I'm thinking you need to come have lunch with Amanda, Meagan and me. :-)

  4. I love this! And I too love how connected to other teachers that share/relate to my enthusiasm and creative energy I feel because of blogging. How nice of you to highlight these great blogs! Next time I totally want on that list. :)
