Budding Blogger Linky Party and a Freebie!

It's Friday and Donut Day!  Two of the best things linked into one day!  We are counting down the last twenty-six days of the year with a letter from the alphabet.  Today is "D" day and we are celebrating with Donuts!

I am linking up today with I {heart} recess for her Buddy Bloggers linky party.  This is for bloggers who have under 200 followers.  I am excited to meet new bloggers and introduce myself to people who may not know me!

1. Why did you start blogging?
I was encouraged to start blogging by mom and my teaching partner Jessica from Joy in the Journey.  I had started a TPT store and they thought having a blog would get more exposure of my products.  They also encouraged me to share some of my teaching ideas.  I never thought I would do it, but it has been wonderful since I started!
2. What is your favorite subject to teach and why?
I love teaching science.  I was never a great science student in school, but I always loved the experiments and hands-on learning.  I love exploring the unknown with my students in science and discovering new and exciting things through experiments and hands on learning.
3. Describe your teaching style.
I like to make learning fun.  I like to take my students on an adventure with learning new things.  I feel each child learns differently so I need to make sure I am covering various learning styles to accommodate each student.  I do not mind a loud classroom, if my students are learning in the process.  We have fun!
4. Give three interesting facts about you.
- I went to five different schools from K-8th without moving once!
- I have over 1000 books in my classroom library that belong to me! (I have a slight obsession with books!)
- I have run three half marathons with my best friend Kate.  Two have been the Disney Princess Half Marathon and one was the Chicago Rock and Roll Half Marathon.  I would love to run a Marathon one day, but right now I am not in shape at all to run any long distance!

5. Do you have a TpT store? If yes, post the link.
I do have a TpT store.  It is not very big, but I have a million ideas in my head I am hoping one day to make products for.  Please check me out at:

Here is a freebie for you!

Freebie Fridays

This was lots of fun!  I cannot wait to meet some new friends through this!  I hope you all have a great week-end!



  1. Mmmm...donut day sounds delicious! Nice to meet you Rosie!

  2. Over 1000 books! Love it! Why did you go to so many schools without moving? That seems very strange (and hard)!

    I'm going to go check out your store now (I've been following your blog for awhile already!)

  3. Hi, Rosie. I'm a new blogger and found your blog on the budding bloggers link as I was searching for bloggers to nominate for the Liebster Award. I was just nominated by my friend and colleage Jen from That First Grade Blog and am paying it forward by nominating you for the award since you are so close to having 200 followers. I am now following your blog and would love it if you would follow my blog as well. Please read my blog to find out more about the Liebster Award. Thanks. Lori from Mrs. Ross's Science Class.
