So Thankful! and So Excited! :)

Hey everyone,

I am so thankful for all of the support and encouragement I have been getting lately from not only people I work with, but also my new teacher blogger buddies!  I cannot tell you how thankful I am for your help in spreading the word about my little Lock Smocks!  Last week I shared the wonderful post from Amanda Nickerson from One Extra Degree about Lock Smocks... you can check that out here incase you missed it.  

This week I am so excited to share this Five for Friday post by Amy Lemons from Step into 2nd Grade with Mrs. Lemons!  Check out her post to see how she is using her Lock Smock in her classroom!!!!! 

I cannot even begin to express how thankful I am and how excited I am to be mentioned in these two amazing women's blog posts!  Their posts have helped spread the word about Lock Smocks and I am so grateful!  

If you would like to know more about Lock Smocks or get one for yourself, check out my etsy site The Price of Teaching.  Or you can check out my previous post here.

Do you have a classroom blog?

Hey everyone,

I have been going back and forth for a few weeks now about whether or not to start a blog for my classroom.  A blog that will give parents up-to-date information about what is going on in our classroom, more than our weekly newsletter usually gives, and a chance to allow students to "blog" about what they are learning.  I teach 2nd grade and didn't know if this was something my students would be able to do with minimal help, when I would find time to let a student or two blog each day about their learning, and if it would be beneficial for students and their parents.  So I wanted to get your thoughts on it.  Do you have a classroom blog?  Do you post things daily as well as have students post about their learning or what you're doing in class?  How do you find time to let a couple of students post on the blog?

I would LOVE any ideas, comments, your thoughts on this.
