Newbie Blog Hop

Grade Three is the Place for Me!

 Janis at "Third Grade is the Place for Me" started this great blog hop for people like me that are new to blogging.  What a great idea.

 The only rules are to tell a little about yourself and then add your blog to the list. Easy enough, I can do that. Here are the prompts:

1. what state you are in
2. your current teaching position
3. your teaching experience
4. when you started blogging
5. share a blogging tip / blogging resource
#1 I am in Colorado.
#2 I am teaching third grade for my 7th year.
#3 I have been teaching for 21 years now in K-3rd grades.
#4 I started blogging in May, 2012.
#5 Give things away on your blog, don't just tell about what you are doing.

Now I'll be busy checking out all the new blogs.  I'll have some pictures of my new classroom soon with some freebies.  I've been working on all of our new curriculum and setting up my room with Whole Brain Teaching.


  1. Hi ! I found your blog from the Newbie Blogger Hop, and wanted to stop by. Your labels are too cute. I am completely obsessed with polka dots :) Also, I agree that as new bloggers, we need to give away Freebies, but I can't seem to figure out HOW to do that. Any help would be greatly appreciated :)


  2. I found you on the blog hop. I'm your newest follower. If you get a chance visit my blog "Calling Plays in 2nd Grade".

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I thought I would come check yours out too! I will be posting pics of my classroom next week as we don't get our keys until this Friday. BOO
