Kids Crafts { Add Your Link!}

kids craftsAfter a long week with so much sadness and late nights watching the news I can’t wait to see what you have been up to. Every Sunday while I scroll through the links I am reminded how much I miss teaching and seeing what other teachers had planned for their class. You don’t have to be a trained teacher to share here ( although I know we have many) you just have to have something that helps someone else. So think of this as the staff room and share what you have done this week on your blog.

Also every Thursday on our Facebook it’s Throw Back Thursday and we welcome you to link up something old that deserves to be seen again ( and again) .



Crafty Kids Activities { Add Your Post}

kids craftsIt’s Sunday which means it’s time to add your posts to our Link & Learn linky .  I have been adding links that grab my attention to my Best Of Link & Learn board on Pinterest as well as my other boards so don’t miss them.

If you are new to our linky please don’t be shy find some posts you are excited to share and link them up. There are no strict rules we just ask that you share posts that will help, educate, create or inspire something fun for families.



Kids Crafts & Activities { Link Up! }

link & Learn 2012This week was a whirlwind and before you link up your amazing, creative and helpful blog posts I want to share a bit of news.

Many years ago I said to myself that one day I’d work with Scholastic. You may already know that this blog is syndicated on Scholastic.com but as of this week I am also anchoring the Raise A Reader blog on Scholastic Parents. I am incredibly excited to have a chance to share my passion for literacy with other parents . I am even more excited I get to do it with a dear friend and all around fantastic educator Amy Mascott from teachmama.com.

Check out Raise A Reader here.

Now enough about me! Link up and share.



Kids Activities & Crafts { Add Yours!}

link & Learn 2012I hope you have had a great week. I am so excited to see what you all have to share .

Also this week I will be compiling my favorite links from this linky into a collage and promote it on MemeTales.com , embed it in next week’s Link & Learn post and promote it on our Pinterest boards. What is super exciting about this collage is that each photo within it will be linked directly to the original source ( click and see for yourself! ) You can see it in action below and on the MemeTales website. 

This is fantastic for blogs rounding up ideas from others and great for pinterest!
