New Bloggers Blog Hop

I am breaking the rules of two posts in one day, but I just had to post the "Newbie Bloggers Blog Hop". I only have been blogging since April and am so amazed at how helpful everyone is. So join in "NEWBIES"!!!

Janis at Grade Three is the Place for Me!  is having a newbie blogger blog hop.  Since I just started my blog in April...I had to join in.  I hope that you will check out some of the other newbie bloggers!  For any other newbies, link up and tell everyone:

1. What state your are in.
2. Your current teaching position.
3. Your teaching experience.
4. When you started blogging.
5. Share a blogging tip/ blogging resource

1. I am in El Dorado Hills, California.
2. I currently teach 2nd grade.
3. I will begin my 18th year of teaching. I have taught 2 years of 6th, 3 years of 4th, and 12 years in 2nd.
4. I started blog stalking last summer and begin my blog in April.
5. If you don't know something just ask. Fellow bloggers are extremely helpful. Remember to bookmark a blog you like or one that is helpful!!


  1. I'm your newest follower. Come check out my newbie blog!

  2. Thanks for joining the blog hop! I love your tagline! Have you seen the free printable "The classroom runs on love, laughter, and diet coke"? They have other versions. I'm framing the "This school runs...on diet coke" for my principal! :) One of the bloggers I follow made them...but I don't remember which one...I'll have to google it!

  25. Hi Christa,

    I found you through the newbie blog hop and am so happy to have found your blog. I do have to say you have great taste in blog design! Alicia at Dreamlike Magic designed my page as well. I'm still in the process of adding some stuff, but I"m thrilled so far.

    I see that you teach in California, as do I. What reading program are you using at your school? We just adopted a new program called Reading Street.

    I'd love it if you could hop on over and check out my blog!
