Instagram Linky Party

The holidays felt like a whirlwind this year with getting out of school so close to Christmas. I'm pretty excited to have two more weeks to rest and relax and do the things I love to do though.

Speaking of things I love...I joined Instagram over the summer and started following some fellow teachers. I quickly realized there was an amazing group of people on there willing to share their ideas and I have been hooked ever since. It's been a great resource to find inspiration for the classroom and a place to get quick feedback on a question.

When I saw that Kickin' it in Kindergarten was hosting a Teachers of Instagram Linky Party I knew I had to be a part of it.

The idea is to share your three favorite Instagram posts from 2013, so here we go!

1. Something Cute
My pup- Dakota
 2. Something Fun
Our classroom elf- Bacon
 3. Something that Caught My Eye
The sunset from my driveway one evening
Follow me on Instagram @coveredinglitterandglue 

Head over to Kickin it in Kindergarten's blog to be a part of this linky or to check out other teachers who are as Instagram obsessed as I am!

  7. TWO WEEKS?! I go back on Thursday :( Your puppy is super cute, and I love your elf mischief! I didn't have a classroom elf this year, but after seeing all the shenanigans on IG, I think I'll be joining in on the fun next year!

    Hippo Hooray for Second Grade!

  8. Your puppy is too precious! I love the elf on the shelf in the bandaids! I did that one too!


  9. Confession: I've had an Elf on the Shelf for 3 years and have NEVER taken it out of the box!! I always have such terrible guilt looking at all the creative elf antics on Instagram/Facebook/Pinterest... But, I just **know** I would totally FAIL at changing it up every day. Maybe next year... ;) LOL!!

    Happy Teacher Heaven
