My Grade 4-8 Friends...This Post is For You!

Hello Friends!

I am writing today to tell you about a new and exciting collaborative group I have just joined.

I am teaming up with 8 other fabulous upper elementary and middle school teachers to bring you our very best tips and tricks specific to upper grades.

We are NOT doing another collaborative blog.  It's much more fun than that!

There will be no reading involved on your part!

We will be collaborating through Periscope!

You may be asking yourself, Peri-whaaa??  

Periscope is the really awesome and super easy-to-use new app.  It allows you to share videos in LIVE time!!

That's right, we are going to be sharing LIVE videos of all our best teaching ideas specific to grades 4-8.  You can even send us comments and questions we can read and answer LIVE.  How cool is that!?!?!?!

The videos will only be 5 minutes long.

All you need to do in order to join in on the fun is download the Periscope app to your phone.  It is SUPER easy.

Then, you can follow all our pages on Periscope.  Right as we go live your phone will let you know!  Of course, we will give you an advanced notice of when to hop on Periscope.  But, if you miss the live version, you can watch it any time for 24 hours.  After 24 hours, the video goes away.

Here is who you can watch!

I hope you will join us!!


  1. Really excited about this! I think that I have everyone followed (some didn't have photos so I was worried I followed the wrong person!) but I have not been able to find Erin at Lovin Lit. I have tried all sorts of combinations of her name and her store/social media name and have not been able to find it. Could you share what her exact periscope name is? Thank you!

    1. Hi Miss Martin!

      Erin's Periscope is Imlovinlit. Can't wait to get these started! :)

  2. This will be a great way to see what other teachers do! I was unable to find Jen Runde on Periscope. Can you list the names we should look for?
