    I love Mrs. Pohlmeyer's Kinder Page! I can't get it to open anymore :eek:. I use this site all the time in my lesson plans.
    Anyone else having trouble?
    Please tell me that it is just my computer. Here is the website-
    http://mrspohlmeyerskinderpage.com/-35k Let me know if it works for you.
    She has such wonderful ideas and lots of pictures. I really rely on this site. Thanks.

    It didn't come up for me either. Maybe she moved her site to a new web address?

    I tried this site the other day and couldn't get it either. :( I'm hoping it's just a "technical glitch." I really love it!

    I had her as a workshop presenter last year. She is now a principal and was going to take down her site after a year or so.

    I need just a chance to copy down what I might need.
    If anyone finds out how to do this, pass it on.

    I tried emailing her too, but the email address doesn't work. It makes me so sad when great sites like this go offline. I would do anything possible to help maintain or host sites so they are always available. I wish I knew how to contact her. There was another email address I tried so I'll cross my fingers that it will go through. I haven't gotten a returned error yet.

    Thanks for trying. Who knows, maybe she will get word of this and respond.
    Fingers crossed.

    I'm not sure if anyone remembers this, but about a year ago Mrs. Pohlmeyer posted on her site that she would be taking it down. She was bombarded with emails asking her to leave it up. People were offering to pay her fees, etc. She posted again stating that she would be leaving the site up without any updates for awhile, but would definitely be removing it in the future. I would not be surprised if it was gone for good. Back when we thought it was going away, my friends and I copied and pasted the entire website to word documents just in case.

    That was such a wonderful idea. I found the website in March, so I don't have all of the wonderful ideas for the whole year!

    Was she just not wanting to maintain it any longer? I can always take over maintenance on great sites like that. :( I have seen this happen with so many great sites before, but I don't know about it until the site is already gone. Then the domain gets taken over by some search service and all the links that were pointing to it get hijacked by them.

    If anyone knows of this happening with other sites, let me know so I can try offering help.

    P.S. I found an address so I am going to write to her. If anyone can tell me more about why she was planning to take down the site, let me know.

    Teachers Unite:soapbox:!

    We need websites like Kinderpage.

    We are all in this together! If we know of ways to keep these great sites going, let's work together and make it happen.

    With funding for education going down the drain, we teachers rely on these education sites to find and share great ideas.

    If you maintain one of these site, first off, Thank You:hugs:. I would not have made it these last few years without your help. If you think that you will need to shut down your site due to cost or time or whatever, let us help you. You have helped us so much, we owe you that much.

    O.K. so I'm not the only one upset over her site not functioning. Good to know. Keep me posted.
    Thanks,
    Gina :)
