A New Linky Party!

Happy Wednesday Friends! I am SUPER happy tonight. Let me tell you why!

First, we got an automated message from our Superintendent that we do NOT have to make up the extra snow days we had this year. Our governor signed legislation where we only have to go by hours and not days. Woot-woot! So that cuts off a full 3 days! June 7th is our last day!

Second, and MOST IMPORTANTLY! My BBB ( best bloggy buddy) Angela over at Hippo Hooray for 2nd Grade contacted me about a week or so ago with an idea for a new linky party. And I was IMMEDIATELY on board!

I don't know about all of you but sometimes this bloggy world that I LUH-HUV to be a part of can drag me down. I want to see visuals of what neat things people are doing in their classroom and maybe some cool freebies. I started blogging because of all of the amazing things I saw going on in people's classrooms on Pinterest. But lately, it feels like I am being bombarded by people using their blog and Pinterest as a means to get people to buy their stuff. Don't get me wrong. I have a TPT store and I promote the items I make on my blog. But I have been feeling an immense pressure to do more, sell more and that was not the point of this blog.

So getting back to basics and the reason I started this blog in the first place, this is the linky that Angela and I will be hosting.

It's super simple. Tomorrow, just take a slow walk around your classroom. Take a close look around at EVERYTHING. What's something you have/do in your classroom that makes your life as a teacher easier? The key words are "Quick Tips." Snap a photo and tell us a little ditty about how your tip helps you. The only rule is that you may not link up with a paid product. Freebies are A-OK! This linky is set to launch this Thursday and will continue weekly on Thursdays. We hope you'll join in on the fun with us!
