5.5.08- Happy Cinco de Mayo! It's been a stressful weekend for this site. A certain education forum has decided that any ideas shared by it's member belongs exclusively to them, even when the poster of the idea has given other websites permission to use it. So I have been ordered to remove all ideas obtained from this website, and have been banned as a member. This is really sad, because I thought it was a great community. Please be aware, if you are using this site, that they see themselves as the owners of your ideas once you have posted them. If you are a ProTeacher using this site, this is the reason you can longer find any of my posts in the archive-please keep word about this site alive, as all references to it have disappeared and people are wondering why!! In other news, we have new postings on Classroom Deals (Free), Physical Classroom (Classroom Pictures), Classroom Management (Communication) and Reading (Friday Book Teas). We had our first idea e-mailed in (thanks, Corene!!), and it was a fantastic one. Please feel free to send in any ideas or attachments (I will not claim ownership on ANYTHING posted here) and keep spreading the news about this site!

4.24.08- I've been struggling with the advertising on this site lately. I'm really not doing this to make money, as I cannot take credit for 80% of the stuff on here. It's just a collection of ideas and activities. However, some extra income to spend on more idea books wouldn't hurt. So I've been trying to find the best way to insert USEFUL advertising, that might help you guys in the process of your browsing. Googleads didn't like our site, and the other types of ads I've used have been terrible. Ads for scam lotteries? No thanks. But I think I've finally stumbled upon one that will work. Everyone knows and loves amazon.com, right? Well, they let me pick out specific items that go with the ideas you are looking at and advertise them on the page. This helps you, because these are honestly useful products (I have to hold myself back from buying them all!), and if you purchase anything at all through one of the links on here, my classroom will get 4% of the purchase price. Not bad! So if you have to do any shopping from amazon.com, just come on back and enter the site through one of my links. The money will be going straight back into the classroom and into the site. Good karma!
