Blog Mixer Linky Party

As I am trying to start blogging - I love to stalk blogs...just not sure about actually finding the time to blog myself - I am ending this day with a Blog Mixer Linky Party that Yearn to Learn is hosting. This is a great way to find some new blogs that you might not know about!

Here's what you need to find and list.

1. A blogger who is a "New Kid on the Blog"
(Let's say someone who has blogged 2 months or less and has less than 200 followers)

2. Post a blogger in your same grade level

3. Post a blogger in a different grade level

4. It's all about the button. Find a cute blog button and post it.

Ready, Set, Go!

1. My kid blogger is The Bubbly Blonde Teacher. Be sure to check her out!

2. I love all of the second grade blogs! I will have to say that Swimming Into Second is great - you should check her out. She is very creative and teaches next door to me :)

3. I fell in love with Shai Winston the first time I ran across her website over a year ago. Now she is moving to 3rd grade and has started blogging. Check out her blog at Ms. Winston's Teaching Blog.

4. I LOVE the blog button from A Teeny Tiny Teacher. I think it's adorable.

Go link up with Yearn to Learn and start hunting around for those blogs to spotlight!

Attempted to Work in My Class Today

I went into school today for a little over an hour to try to wrap my head around how I wanted to arrange my room this year. My school is blessed with wonderful custodians who puts a lot of our "stuff" back where it was before they moved it out to wax our floors. I am posting some pictures of my class that I took today. I am going to TRY to go back next week...but I am also trying to get my oldest son ready for college and trying to spend as much time with him as possible.

I wish you could bulk order the items in Target's Dollar Spot! It would be so much easier on everyone...Target would probably make a lot more money off of us. I have been searching several Targets to get the baskets to redo my classroom library. I have 12 of them now - I really need about 30. YIKES!

Stepping Into A Land Unknown

I have been blog stalking for several months now. I have went back and forth wondering if I would be able to keep up with a blog if I started it. I don't know if I can, but I am going to take that step and try.
