Thank you for photo permissions … and request number 3
Thank you to the wonderful bloggers who have given me permission to use your photos in my posts (with credit to you, a link to your post, and a comment letting you know I’m using your photo, of course)! If you haven’t seen my request for permissions, here’s a link to my post: Request for Montessori Photo Permissions.
My request …if I may have permission to use photos from your blog, please let me know! Although I use Montessori photos most often, I also link to posts with crafts, art projects, and educational activities (especially unit studies posts with family activities). If you have posts with similar activities, I’d really appreciate photo permissions for them. Being able to use a photo from your post adds to the roundup post content and also brings attention to your link.
Thank you to link-up participants … and request number 4
Thank you to everyone who links up and to everyone who reads and comments on the Montessori Monday posts! I always enjoy seeing the ideas that are linked up each week, and I appreciate the encouragement you give to each other in using Montessori education at home or school.
Thank you to everyone who links up and/or visits the participants in my Family-Friendly Giveaway Linky (which you can link up with at any time and has outdated links removed each Sunday)!
My request … please link up regularly. I love to see what Montessori-inspired activities you’re doing (and Montessori Monday is typically one of my first sources for activities when I do a roundup post).
