The Blogging Mom!

One of the reasons I LOVE blogging is checking out other people's blogs and all the amazing ideas they have!  I've learned so much since I started blogging this past summer!  One blog I have enjoyed checking out is... The Blogging Mom by Molly Phillips!  You have to check it out!  Molly has games and lesson activities for all elementary levels!  Her games are precious (darling graphics) and perfect for my second graders!
Let me introduce you to Molly.  She has been married for 18 years.  She and her husband are both educators  and have 3 kids, ages 14, 12, and 17 months.  Needless to say...they stay very busy, but still find the time to make creative lessons!!! Molly started making items for Teachers Pay Teachers when she found out she was moving to fourth grade.  In her search to find fun and creative game ideas, she was finding that there simply wasn't a whole lot out there for the upper elementary grades.  In her words..."It's sort of like everyone thinks the fun is supposed to go away when you hit fourth".  Well thankfully Molly does not have that frame of mind in her classroom... she is all about fun and cooperative learning, and because of that, her TpT store has lots of fun math games, which make wonderful center activities.  As a matter of fact, some have even dubbed her "The Game Girl" because she can turn just about anything into a game. In addition to games, she has some reader's and writer's workshop materials, as well as lesson ideas for other subjects. 
Make sure you check out my friend Molly's blog at The Blogging Mom and look for a teacher's corner where you will see links to all of her lesson/game ideas!!!  Have a great week at school!!!  -Yvonne
