New Blogger Blog Hop!


My new blogging buddy, Melissa from Teacher Treasure Hunter, let me know about the "Newbie Bloggers Blog Hop" started by Janis at Grade Three is the Place for Me!  If you are a newbie like me, you may want to join in the fun!   Here are some things Janis would like us to share:
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 Oregon.
2.  I am going to be switching from 2nd grade to 1st grade...It has been a long time since I've taught   first grade.  My mind is spinning with ideas for teaching these kids!
3.  I have taught since 1992 in 1st, 2nd, and 1st/2nd blend classrooms.
4.  I started blogging at the end of June 2012.
5. This tip came from Marie at The Hands-On Teacher in First!
When you want to leave a comment on someone's blog post and you want your own blog's LINK to show up, all you have to do is type this:

 <a href="URLHERE">Your Blog title here</a>

I copied my info to a "post-it" widget on my desktop, then copy and paste it when I make a comment.

  2. I'm so glad you joined my first blog hop! I'm your newest follower. I never thought of using the post-it widget. I just saved a word document on my desktop for my blog signature. (I have never even used the post-it widget yet...)

    1. Thanks for creating the blog hop! It is a great idea!

      The post-it widget is just one that came with my computer, but I bet you can find many others like it to download.

  9. I like how you keep your tag closer at hand. I've been keeping mine in a postdated post far far far into the future, but that requires so much more effort each time I want to comment, so thanks!

    1. Hi Heather!
      Thanks for visiting my blog! I'll buzz over your way today.

      I adore Toothless Wonders, so that pic had to go on my header. I saw a pin on Pinterest that someone made a poster just of close-up photos of kids who had lost teeth. I am SO going to do that this year!

  14. Yay . . . a West Coast girl. I love Oregon so much - we have a Portland trip planned right before school starts for me in good old (HOT) Cali. My hubs went to U of O and we live and breathe Duck Football :) Glad I popped in today!

    1. Kelley,
      I'm glad you like Oregon! I love it, too. I'm not very good with heat, unless it is when I am visiting Disneyland! The Ducks are very much loved around here. :)
      I am now following you. :)
