Blog Mixer Linky

I figured I would join this linky party because I am so new to blogging.  Here we go...

2.  A blog that is in the same grade level as myself would be A Day in the Life of a 2nd Grade Teacher

3.  A place for great lesson ideas is Lesson Plan SOS.

4.  A cute blog button would be ...
