Calling All Bloggers, Pinners, and Readers!

Hello, hello!  Just a quick post today to tell you a few quick things.

First ...

I just added a new page on my blog called More Teaching Blogs.  If you have a teaching blog, just click the tab and add your link under the appropriate grade level.

This would help me (and others) in SO many ways:
#1 - Many blogs have uber cute blog names like The Teaching Thief but the name in NO way indicates what grade they teach. This sorts that out.  
#2 - I'm sure to discover new wonderful blogs that I have been missing out on and  by providing your link one more place, others are sure to discover your blog too.
#3 - It is just nice having it all in one place. Don't ya think? I know lots of other bloggers have this on their blogs too, but it would really help me if it was right at my fingertips.


I finally broke down and joined the world of Pinterest.  I was worried it would consume me and GUESS WHAT?  I'm checking my phone every chance I get.  I knew it would be like this.  I held out as long as I could.  But now, I have joined the masses and I'm loving it! Feel free to follow as I obsessively pin all summer.

I just got back from the gym and spin totally kicked my bootie! I am so going to feel that tomorrow and perhaps even this afternoon. I think I have earned a few hours poolside, book in hand.

Oh, and speaking of books...check back tomorrow for the launch of Fiction Fridays: A Celebration of Children's Literature! It's going to be great!

Okay... one more thing...

Don't forget to check out my list of Web 2.0 Tools I'm looking to use next year.  I'd love to get your feedback.  Thanks!
