I was so excited to be invited to a bloggy meet up! I have to admit, I've been so jealous of other bloggers, where they're meeting in Texas and Chicago and such. Earlier this year, I was proud to display the button to the side and link up with Fifth in the Middle as a VA blogger.
Unlike the rest of the country, here in Virginia we are sticking hard to our SOLs. (Yes, we get the joke and often retell it!). While Virginia likes to brag that our standards were some of the basis for the Common Core, we are only an affiliate state - we support, but don't follow, in other words.
So, we have some weird ones out there - life cycle of the white-tailed deer in second grade, for example, in lieu of frogs - so I always love to get comments on TPT about following the standards. :)
Anywho, thanks to Karen over at Mrs. Stamp's Kindergarten for inviting me! If you are a VA blogger and would like to join us, it's going to be in Northern Virginia at Potomac Mills (of course! I think there's a Lakeshore store somewhere up there as well, but that might be Fredericksburg....I'll have to look up more details on that. Better start saving my money!). I'm taking a buddy of mine, Valerie over at Enriching Kinders, and can't wait to meet up with others! Even if you're an aspiring blogger and haven't quite gotten it started yet, please feel free to come!
Details: We're meeting at 1pm at Bahama Breeze (Potomac Mills, Woodbridge) on July 25th. I hope to see you there! Contact Karen for more details and to RSVP!
