Helllloooooooo out there!!!!

Helllloooooo out there!!! I am alive and coming back! I don't have a lot to say tonight, but as I've been blog stalking, I'm learning that doesn't really matter! Ha! I got a little discouraged because I still don't know as much about this blogging thing as I want. I keep suggesting a blogging class for our next PD but I have not gotten much response to that! Imagine. Learning about something that is current and interesting!!! My district is even into blocking certain, inappropriate websites on our server. Such as, FACEBOOK. Well, I can kind of understand that, although I really want to start a classroom page that my students' parents can be a part of, but oh well.  The other day, though, Pinterest was blocked! Are you serious!!! I get all of my cute teaching ideas from Pinterest because my brain just does not think cute. I wish it did. But it just doesn't.  So I have to depend on all you other cute people to supply the idea, then I can tweak it to make it my own. Thank you, cute people.  I appreciate you. Luckily, after several freakouts! comments were made, the problem was fixed and Pinterest is back!  Thanks again to all you cute people whom I can steal ideas from.
I promise to be back soon! I hope I can hear from some of you! Send me a cute idea you are doing in your classroom right now!


  1. I am jealous! You can get to Pinterest....WOW! It is blocked. Etsy is blocked...there are some teacher blogs that are blocked! We have serious blocking issues and are always trying to figure out a back door to sneak in to go around all of the blocking!

    I AM happy to be your newest follower. I would love for you to visit me when you get the chance. =) I am a 1st grade teacher!

    1. Your district needs to realize how valuable Pinterest is! I get so many cute ideas that go right along with our standards! It's not like we're all on there shoe shopping...not most of the time, anyway! :)
      I'm following you now, too!
      Thanks for coming!

  2. You sound a lot like me, I started out blog stalking and then decided to start my own. I didn't (still don't) have a clue how to do much on the blog and at the moment things seem to be piling up at school, so it's hard to find the time to do much searching.

    I'm your newest follower, I'd love for you to follow me back, maybe we can share tutorials that can help us both.

    BTW I teach first grade.

    1. I couldn't find you! What is your web address? And go to Ladybug's Teacher Files for some Tutorials about blogging. On her site I learned to add this...
      Funtastic Fun in First Grade
      I'm quite proud of myself! :)

  3. Everything is blocked at my school too! Well, we do have pinterest, but I'm waiting for that to become blocked too.... :( (I even wanted to do a facebook page for my class, but would have had to sit down with my principal to approve it---and then of course everything would have had to be done on MY outside of school time... so I passed..)

    You have a cute blog! I'm your newest follower! I'm also a first grade teacher--come check out my blog if you get a chance! I'd love for you to be a follower too :)

  4. Everything is blocked at our school! You are lucky that you have access to everything that you do. Love your blog & will be checking back soon.
