    Did all of your parents sign off on pictures being shared on the internet? I had a lot that said "No!" :(

    Mine all did say yes to posting pictures. I type up a permission form that explains in detail that the site is advertised to class member families only. I also explain that most pictures are group photos and that no names will be on the site. That reassures most parents. I did have some say no on the form that the school sent home. When I gave them the form that I wrote, they said yes. :)

    How can you say that the site is advertised to class family members only and then provide a link here?

    Well, usually it is only advertised to class members. I didn't think anything about posting to a teacher site.

    Rita I am glad that you did. I loved your Eric Carle idea. I may use that. Did I see a gumball machine in your room? If yes, where did you get it from?

    I do love your website- don't get me wrong, but you HAVE to think of the ramifications of saying that you will only advertise to family members of the class and then open up your website through a very public forum. As a parent I would have issues with it. My administrators and board would have issues with it. Be careful- if you promise something make sure you deliver.

    Rosieo- I do have a gumball machine, but we call it a "skittle" machine. ;) I actually got it as a gift, so I am not sure where it was purchased. I know my husband ordered it online though.

    MandaNicole01- Yes, we do have a great chunk of planning time on Wednesdays! I love it! We also have a 15 minute morning recess and a 30 minute afternoon recess daily for planning as well. :)
