Let's Get Acquainted and a Freebie!

Some of our Bloggy Friends:  This was a hard decision and we are cheating a bit!  We thought that since there are two of us, we could each pick two blogs and so we have four blogs to share about!

 We've just recently gotten to know Amber!  She has great ideas and freebie she shares on her blog.  We love how 'homey' her classroom looks!  We enjoy seeing her linking up with lots of the same linkys as us!  We're loving Amber's Father's Day Booklet: My Rad Dad!

 We love how these girls always post a common core standard for an activity or lesson they share in their blog posts!  Also, they have lots of great technology ideas!!  And they are blogging partners like us!  We just grabbed this fun Summer themed dialogue activity.  We're excited to see what our kiddos come up with!

We love Molly's enthusiastic comments to our posts!!  It is so nice to see such kind comments!  She has started a monthly freebie linky.  We just linked up this month!  Check it out!

Julie has great ideas!!  We love getting a peek into her classroom and seeing what activities her kiddos are working on!  

And we have a freebie to share too!
