Calling All 3rd, 4th, & 5th Grade Teacher Bloggers!


I know I am missing so many upper elementary blogs out there since I don't have a lot of time to surf the web so I decided to have an "Upper Elementary Linky Party"!  This way I can follow all of you, if I am not already (and perhaps you can follow me too).  I also want to provide my followers with other upper elementary blogs to read.  I love sharing ideas, strategies, and tips that we can all use in our classrooms.  I love my lower elementary and secondary friends too but this time its just for 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grades.  Just link up below!   Please make sure you snag the pic above and add it to your blog or blog post and link it back to this post.
Thanks!

  2. Thank you for organizing some upper elementary blogs! I teach third grade and although I follow a lot of blogs, it is so time consuming to hone in on some just for upper elementary. I hope to learn how to do a blog during the summer!

    1. You are very welcome Kimmie! I hope to find some new upper elementary blogs, add them to my blog roll, and network & collaborate with them. If you want to learn how to create a blog you have to join
      Teaching Blog Traffic School I've learned soooooooooooo much from it (and I'm still learning).

  11. I got your email. Sorry about that. I am working on my computer at school and I had already linked up. When I tried to post from school on my blog, it wouldn't let me because it said my browzer was not supported. I didn't want you to think I wasn't following the rules. I will just have to do this at home after conferences tonight. =) Have a great evening!

    1. No problem at all! I just wanted to send a reminder. My computer at work won't let me do a lot of things in the blogging world either :) Guess they want me teaching and not blog stalking. LOL!

  12. Thank you for hosting! We're always outnumbered by primary teachers, so I love connecting with other intermediate bloggers as well.

  62. Hello,
    My name is Leslie Mejia and I'm an 8th grader at the San Francisco 49ers Academy. The 8th grade girls are currently working on the Technovation contest. The Technovation contest is basically a contest for young girls to create an app to help the community. My group is working on an app for 3rd-5th graders. We want to help them practice/study/learn more. I was wondering if you guys could do us a huge favor and take our 3rd-5th grade teachers only survey. We'd really appreciate it and thanks for your time!
