Let's Get Acquainted...Meet 2 of My Bloggy Friends

Today I'm linking up with Flying into First Grade for her Sunday Let's Get Acquainted Linky Party. The topic this week is meet 2 of my bloggy friends. Now since I'm a fledgling blog I don't have many friends to choose from, but it was still a tough choice.

My first pick is Tessa from Tales from Outside the Classroom & Tales from a Blog Designer

Tessa designed my blog & did an absolutely fabulous job!!! She was so easy to work with and had my blog design completed before I knew it.

Check out this great freebie she has in her Tpt store. {Click the picture to head over there} It's a short-vowel game, where students read the word and decide if it's real or fake. This is a great game for student's to play especially if you use DIBELS and have to give the NWF test. 

My second pick is Caitlin & Carrie from Table Talk with C&C

Table Talk with C&C

I just adore their blog. They are sharing some great ideas over there & the kids in their classroom are really lucky to have 2 great teachers.

I found this simple, yet amazing freebie in Carrie's Tpt store & immediately downloaded it. This will be perfect for my 2nd graders to organizer their coins when counting. {Click the picture to head over there}
And if you are joining in on the popularity of QR codes then head over to Caitlin's Tpt store & pick up this gem of a freebie on measurement. I love when my students can self check & this measurement activity has them doing just that through QR codes. {Click the picture to head there}

Okay this is the last one I promise. This one isn't a freebie; however, it is inexpensive & on my wish list to remind myself to purchase this pack. Reading is Thinking...with Post-Its. When I saw the blog post describing this I knew it was for me, especially since I had just gone over this with my littles about how good readers are constantly thinking, questioning, etc. while they are reading. {Click the picture to head over to Carrie's Tpt store}

Sorry this turned out to be a long post, but I hope you found it useful & have found some new friends.

    1. Theresa,
      Thank you so much. I too love your design & name. A blog after my own heart. I absolutely ADORE polka dots, it's also the theme in my room. I've considered a door sign that says "Welcome to the Polka Dot Palace!" :) It's great to find other new bloggers. I'm your newest follower.

    1. Hi Carrie,
      Oh your welcome! I do love your blog, so it was only natural to feature it. I think it's so great that you and Caitlin are co-teachers and have started a blog together. I've seen so many great things on your blog. Keep up the great work (I know that sounds corny, such a teacher line) but it's the truth. You guys are inspiring.



I love reading your comments!!! And will respond to each one by e-mail, make sure that you have that option enabled. If it's set to noreply-comment, then I can't respond to your sweet comment. Check your settings today so you can receive my comment back. Thanks for the love!
