Spreadin' Blog Love with a Freebie

You've heard of romance.
You've heard of bromance.
I now introduce to you... blogmance.

You know what I'm talking about.  Some people may call them BBFF's (Bloggy Best Friends Forever), but they are the bloggers that you just love!  You've formed a little relationship with them.  You go to them for help with giveaways or linky parties.  You share products and get them to help you proof them.  They are like a friend you've had forever, except you may have never met them in person or talked to them on the phone. You get my drift.

I'm sending my first dose of blog love out to Kelley of Teacher Idea Factory.

 I blogged about loving Ron Brown and using his music in the classroom when I linked up with Teaching Maddeness for her Turn Up the Music Linky Party. Kelley is Ron Brown's daughter. After reading that post she sent me a ton of his Language Arts CD's!!!  One of the songs, on one of the wonderful CD's inspired the freebie you will get in just a minute.  Don't scroll down yet.  Keep reading.   Y'all, Kelley is so AWESOME!  I just love this girl.  You have got to check out her new Pen Pal packet.  I cannot wait to find me a Pen Pal classroom. {Hint, Hint, to anyone reading.:)}

 Second helping of blog love goes to Sarah of Sarah's First Grade Snippets.
Sarah was a winner of my super short Teacher Appreciation Giveaway.  Since then, I have been lucky enough to receive several of her Monthly Literacy Menus for her TPT store.  They are all AMAZING!  They have everything.  Her September Menu is crazy packed with perfect reading activities for back to school.  Sarah is so super sweet, so go by and check out her stuff.  You will be glad you did.
A little blog love goes to Crystal at Ms. Jones' Junction.
 She is brand new to blogging!  Click on over and welcome her to blog land.

I've been totally behind on blog awards,  so next blog love goes out to the wonderful ladies who said I was a Versatile Blogger and/or have One Lovely Blog. :)  Thanks ladies!!!

Ashlee at Sweet Seconds 
Kristy at Teachin First

My last bit of blog love goes out to those of you who are still reading :)!  One of the CD's Kelley sent was "Word Mechanics."  I love the song "Three Kinds of Sentences" on there and was inspired to make a little activity to go with it.  Click the pic to get your copy.

Don't forget to join my Big Ole Giveaway!!!!!
Have a great week!


  1. I just bought that song- 3 Kinds of Sentences last week. This will be great to go with it. Thanks so much for the freebie. Love it.

    1. Hey Tammy! Someone emailed me right after I posted, but I'm trying to talk Kelley into something that might make it easy for people to be set up with a pen pal. I'll let you know!

  3. Very cute! I'm sending some blog love your way. We all love you!


  4. Thanks Jena for sending some blog love my way!! I am re-cooperating from major surgery on Friday. Trying to get back into the swing of things!! Love the Sorting Silly sentences freebie!!

    1. Ohhh Man Crystal! :( I am so sorry to hear that. I'm praying for a quick recovery so you can enjoy the rest of your summer!

  5. Bahaha blogmance... I love it! I have only been blogging for one month and am already developing some blogmances! This community is truly amazing :) Kelley is fantastic... I actually won a free blog design because of her {loved her blog, so I found her designer and entered their contest... and won!} I love your freebie, by the way! Thank you for sharing!

    1. That's awesome! I LOVE the name of your blog! I always wish that I had given mine some more thought and came up with something a little more original. :)

    2. Aw, thanks! I'm not going to lie... I spent days trying to think of a name and it came to me when I was brushing my teeth one night! ;)

  6. This is great! Thanks so much for sharing.

  7. So cute - LOVE the Sorting Silly Sentences activity!!! I recently posted a couple of charts on my blog for the four types of sentences that would go GREAT with this:

    Thanks for posting this - can't wait to use it!

  8. Jena,
    I am soooooooooooo loving your new term of blogmance. You better get a patent on that quick before someone snaps it up. I can't wait to see what you and Kelley are cooking up with the pen pal idea.
