Newbie Bloggers Blog Hop

I saw this amazing blog hop about newbie bloggers and I knew this was meant for me to join.


1.What state are you in? I live in (central) Indiana. I have found a few other (fabulous) bloggers from my state. :) 
2. your current teaching position I have taught 2nd and 1st grade. I am currently about to start my 5th year (wow) in first. I never ever say myself teaching this young of a group. When I signed up for student teaching I wanted 5th..or 4th..or 3rd. I got assigned to 3rd and I was a bit discouraged but I had the best mentor teacher ever. When it was time to job hunt I was eventually given the opportunity to teach first and I jumped on the opportunity. I am so glad I did. I love it. 
3. your teaching experience Oh...seems like I kinda answered this one in the last question....
1/2year 2nd grade
1yr first grade
1yr second grade
3yrs first grade 
4. when you started blogging  March 2012
5. share a blogging tip/resource
Get the blogger app. (available in iTunes or the Droid app store)
I hardly ever use my digital camera any more so I find myself using the camera on my phone. It's a pretty good camera and the best thing is it's pretty much always with me. I don't really like syncing my phone via usb to my computer nor do I like emailing photos to myself all the time. I use the blogger app to upload photos that I want to include in my blog but I don't always publish from the app. I'll click save that way when I'm on my laptop I can write my blog post and include the photos.

@Sara I have the blogger app on my iPad. I have a droid phone though so sometimes I use an app called 'bump' to transfer pictures.

I'm so glad you popped over to my new blog! :) I LOVE your is so true. The app is great...I use it all the time. So far I have just been editing my posts and reading comments, but that's brilliant. I've been wondering how I could use it for pictures, and you just answered it! :)

Ps-You Might be a First Grader just might be the cutest blog title EVER. I love it! You could totally make a class book and each kiddo could make a page "You Might be a First Grader If..." I might even do that. :) But seriously, obsessed with that name. :)

I'm a bit late to be joining the blog hop but I did it anyway! I was very happy to find you! I just posted about the same book boxes at Ikea (I was super excited to find those, I spent $40 on them last year!) and I've branching out to Daily 5 this year and reading the Daily 5 right now! It seems we have a lot in common! I am your newest follower, so glad I found you!

Heather said...

OH! And thank you for the tip on the app, I'm going to go add that right now!
