Sorry I've been gone for a while.  I took a hiatus for a few reasons:

1. It's been crazy busy around here.  I have a very active almost 3 year old and a diva 9 month old.  The 3 year old naps like a champ, but as for my diva... And as I am/was planning on blogging during nap time, that rarely happens.  Then my husband's grandfather passed away about a week ago, so we have been spending a lot of time with family.

2. I wasn't too crazy on the theme of my blog.  Yes I am VERY interested in interactive notebooks and flipped classroom, and most of my upcoming posts will be on those topics, but I am self-diagnosed ADD and what if I do something really cool that I wanted to share with the world?  So I needed some time to think and I came up with a new name for my blog: Hippo Hooray for Second Grade!  I L.O.V.E. hippos (!!!) and this slogan is actually the one I use on my classroom door.  Sounds perfect to me!  And since I have no readers, I'm sure no one will even notice it changed :)


  1. I found you!! I can't wait for you to share everything you know so that I can steal it!!! Lucky you---you get to do it first I just get sloppy seconds when the come to third grade. In all seriousness, I love what you have started here and can't wait to read more!!

    1. Aww thanks Lisa! You have TONS of great ideas that I steal from you! Don't worry, I'll give you credit for them :)

  2. Yay! I found you too! Can't wait to work with you in Second Grade so I can use your help to try some of this ou too!
