It's the FIRST EVER "Loved That Lesson" Linky!


It's finally here!  I have been mulling this linky over for a long time...I have wanted to find a way for teachers to share really successful lessons from their classroom.


Whether you are a blogger or a blog follower, this is your chance to check out and share some amazing lessons!  If you are linking up, these should be the lessons that make you proud to be a teacher…the lessons where you had fun…where the students learned…where you discovered something.  These are the lessons where you WISH someone had seen the magic that happened in your classroom!  If you are a blog follower--just sit back and enjoy.  Leave some love if you see something you like...

Want to link up?  Here’s all you have to do!

1.  Share about your lesson in your blog post.  As always, photos and clear examples make your post more enjoyable and meaningful.

2.  Make sure your lesson is one that another teacher can learn from and use.  If you use a product in it, that is fine—but the lesson should stand on its own.  For example, I did a post the other day where I explained about a division game I played with my students.  I DID link to my division resource at the end—but the lesson in my post was sufficient enough that another teacher could have taught HER students the game without spending a dime.  My intent with this linky is to share great teaching ideas and to keep improving the quality of the educations we give our students. We all have so much to offer each other—and this is one way to work smarter.  Let’s learn from the best!

3.You must include the linky image and link BACK to my page so others can find your great posts!  I am also asking (honor system) for you to do your best to visit and comment on AT LEAST the post before you and the post after you. 

4.Help market and share the posts you find and the linky image above.  The more we can share it, the more the linky can grow and people will seek it out for great teaching advice.


This linky will be the second Sunday of every month—because I know Sundays are big for teacher planning!  I also figured “Second Sunday” is easy to remember.  This summer I have some ideas to get us through July and August so don’t fear!

So…what next?  Grab the image now if you want to save it to use each month…start thinking about a great lesson you have done recently—or keep your brain thinkin’ over the next weeks so you are ready to link up in June if you aren't ready this month. 

P.S.  Don't forget to check out the great giveaway from my product swap!  Just check the post below!
