I'm Brenda from You Might Be a First Grader... I've been teaching first grade for 5 years now (wowie wow wow) I also did a stint in 2nd grade. I love this age group.
I'm here to offer a freebie, a tip, and a chuckle.
First all a tip...
I've been blogging for about a year. I really try to reply to as many comments as I can. My particular layout doesn't offer a 'reply' option so unless you subscribe to comments on every blog you post to (which may result in a TON of emails, lol) you may never know that you had a reply!
I type a reply and then so many times I see this nasty thing in the address bar (I should look there before I type my reply but live and learn)
|the dreaded 'no-reply' commenter|
