Virginia is for Teachers…a New Blog!

So here's my take,

I have been busy in my classroom these past two weeks
 (almost done and ready to reveal!!!) as I head back for work week tomorrow! 

Sneak Peak
But, I wanted to let you know about a wonderful group of fellow Teacher Bloggers I have the pleasure of working and collaborating with! …and all of us are from Virginia!!!

I have been part of a Facebook community for Virginia Teachers for a couple of years. Since 2012, we have tried to have an annual summer gathering to share and collaborate. 

Over the years we have grown and some very fabulous ladies suggested a blog where we can all share our ideas with teachers everywhere!

The new blog is called, Va is for Teachers! If you are familiar with our state slogan, "Virginia is for Lovers", you can understand the name of our blog!

My good teacher friend, Heather from Beg, Borrow, and Teach, carpooled with me down to this years conference. On our way to the conference in Richmond, Heather and I took as many pictures in front of the LOVE signs as we could. 

We were able to get to 3 in an hour and a half…not too shabby and oh so fun!!!

There are about 30 wonderful teachers creating and sharing on this blog. The blog went live on August 15th and each day there is a post meeting two fantastic teachers, each giving out a FREEBIE, and a rafflecopter of fantabulous prizes!!!

Make sure to stop by today, as it is my turn to post, give a FREEBIE away, and the prize you could win today is a $10 gift card to Teachers Pay Teachers!!! My co-poster today is Desiree from Paper, Pencils, and Progress Reports! 

Don't miss out on meeting her and getting her FREEBIE! 

This here is Desiree from Paper, Pencils, and Progress Reports!

My FREEBIE is a close reading previewing strategy for informational text!

We had an awesome time at our Summer Meet Up together! If you happen to be a Virginia Teacher Blogger, make sure to come and join us! We were so thankful to our sponsors who gave generously to our raffle prizes!!! 

Get to know you Scavenger Hunt!!! So fun!

We each brought a gift for an exchange!!!

This pic made it to the TpT FB page when they asked for heart signs…Very cool!
It was a memorable afternoon and I wish we all gathered more often!!!

Happy Learning!
