Thank You for Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Thanks to everyone who’s been supporting the efforts of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here’s my main Go Pink post. If you’d still like to help, please check out the link in the post to my daughter- and daughter-in-love’s team page for their participation in the Susan G. Komen San Diego Race for the Cure on Sunday. And thanks for your support of Small Hands Creating Hope for the American Cancer Society!
Thank you for photo permissions!
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.
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. I love that the photos add to the post content and also bring attention to your link.
Thank you to link-up participants!
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.
