Snowed in & Guest Blog Hop- New Year, New Ideas, New Friends

Did you get snow?  We got LOTS here!!  I had to share some pictures with you.  Here are some pictures out my window in Indiana!!

Then, I opened my back deck.  Look at the snow!!!  You can see the snow!!  It is all the way up and stayed when I opened the door!! 

Since we are snowed in, we have been visiting so many blogs.  There are so many people with so many good ideas.  So, we decided to come up with a way where we can visit new blogs, share ideas, and meet new friends.  We are trying to make this as simple as possible for everyone.  We have set this up in a circle... so basically you are blogging for someone and someone else is blogging on your blog.  If readers follow the links they will come full circle! 

You have until THIS Friday, December 28th to sign up.  We will email you with the name of the person you will be blogging for and who will be blogging on your blog.  The guest blog post needs to be posted ON January 5th.  Email us at with any questions.

For the newbies and for those of you who forget (like me):  After you receive an email who is blogging for you and who you are blogging for, all you need to do is email your post to the blogger you are blogging on.  Do this as soon as you can so that we can make sure that everyone is included.    This post can be about anything... blog about a great classroom management idea, a great new 2013 product you are excited about, an activity you have done that you want to share... the possibilities are endless.  Include pictures and your blog button so that the when the blogger posts it they can link back to you.  Don't forget to introduce yourself and make the reader want to come follow your blog!  Please send this post by Wednesday night so that we can follow up on loose ends.  If you haven't received a guest post, email us and let us know!

Sign up here: 

Go out and visit some blogs!  This should be a fun way to meet new bloggers and to check out some established bloggers. I know I have lacked in the blogging visiting lately and this is where I get a ton of ideas for my classroom!

Let is Snow.  Let is Snow.  Let is Snow.

  8. Thanks for the invite! I teach in Indiana (and my school town got it hard!), but live in Ohio where we didn't get it quite as bad. The drifts are incredible though!
