Instagram & Fundraiser for Martin Richard

Hi friends!  I have been a little absent from my blog lately, but hope to get back to normal this week.  I had an extremely busy weekend which actually started on Thursday.  Anyways, this post is going to be short & sweet.

First, I have been on instagram for some time, but I never used it much for teaching things until recently.  I am linking up with Michelle over at Apples and ABC's for the Instagram Linky Party.  I will be participating in #teachertalktuesday as well.  If you would like to follow me, my username is @mrs_pauley.  You can follow me {here}.

I love following people on instagram so leave me a comment with your username so I can follow you on there!!  :)

Second, I am teaming up with Sara from Primary Buzz for a fundraiser for the Richard Family Foundation.  Martin Richard was 8 years old when he was killed in the Boston Marathon Bombing on April 15th.  His 6 year old sister, Denise, was critically injured.  HIs mom had a serious brain injury.  Click {here} to go to the fundraiser on Sara's blog.  You will get $78 worth of products for only $15.  Thank you for your donations!!

I will be back later in the week to show you all the fun zoo things we have been doing in my classroom.  :)
