Newbie Blog Hop

While I was wasting  spending time with the 4th love of my life ie: Pinterest ( see my profile for my other 3) I discovered this really great estimation activity at

This is the one I saw. But Kristen, the teacher who created this has 4 for each month August through Septemeber. AND she is letting others use it for free. I love free!

Then as I was scrolling down I saw this button for a "newbie" bloggers linking party. I really loved doing the picture book linking party and actually saw some action on my humble little blog here. :) So I thought this one would be perfect for me.

These are the questions to answer:
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 teach in Michigan!
2. I teach 2nd's the best. :)
3. This will be my 6th year teaching 2nd grade kiddo's. I also worked in my schools Title 1 program as an aide. That was a FABULOUS experience and really helped shape the kind of teacher I am today.
4. Honestly, I apparently joined blogger in February of 2010 but I did nothing with it. Then I started blogging back in August of last year. I only did a few post's before I stopped. I really got into updating things and working more on it just a couple of weeks ago though.
5. Experienced bloggers are VERY willing to help you. I asked a question in the comments of one of Marlana over at Little Country Kindergarten's blog( you can follow her here: I wondered how to create a link from your comment to your blog. She told me  where I could find the instructions ( which I am going to work on next actually) and also said I could email her about it too. So ask away friends! :)

SO....This is a blog hop! You're next!


  1. Okay, totally going to take your blogging advice and ask you the same question! How DO you create a link from your comment to your blog?!! And love that estimation activity!

    1. I have instructions on my Blog Baby Blog page! Let me know if you need help.


      I Teach. What's Your Super Power?


      That is the link that Marlana gave to me. It took me a few tries before I got it right. :) If you follow that where it says Hyperlink Code in black print that is where you put the name of your blog. That was the part that tripped me up the most. :)

  2. It is great connecting with you through the blog hop! Can't wait to explore your blog!!
