Shout Out Linky - February

I would LOOOOVVVE some help to figure out how to set up a reply option underneath the comments my lovely readers make! 

When people leave a comment it comes to me via email and if their email address shows up I often respond back through an email. If they're a no-reply comment blogger then I can't reply via email and I'd love the option to reply right here on the blog. Especially if the comment includes a question that could help other readers.

I have found several tutorials from google and followed them to a T. No dice.

So, if you can help me set up "reply" in the comment section of my blog please comment below to send me in the right direction OR email me at

I'd be sooo thankful!

If you'd like to link up, the guidelines and the widget are at the bottom of this post.

K...I'm SUPER excited to do my February Shout Outs! 

It was really, really REALLY hard to decide. Remembering that I can do more shout outs next month and the next month and the next month helped.

Shout Out Numero Uno goes to Katie King - Queen of the First Grade Jungle.
She featured my STAR Readers pack in her 1300 fb follower give away a few weeks back.

Shameless plug, I know...but it is a pretty fabulous pack and can be used with absolutely any reading program or format!

It was just SOOO super kind of her to do that for me and I was humbled. And, thrilled!

You can read a little bit more about it on this post (and, go ahead and link up with Katie Knight for her fun High/Low Linky!)

Shout Out numero dos goes to Laureen at Teach with Laughter
Teach With Laughter
A few months back I was one of her first commenters for a post she did about some football themed math centers.

Same thing with her recent Valentine Measuring center. Lucky me!

I absolutely love, love, LOVE her centers! The I can statement pages are SO helpful and easy to follow!

I'm adding some of her packs to my TpT wishlist in preparation for the big Super Sunday sale on TpT. They're sooo great!

You should definitely go check out her blog and TpT store! She's participating in a 14 day freebie blog hop so go give her some lub and tell her I sent ya.

This Linky Party has 3 components:

1. Link a post where you have given two shout outs to two bloggers that have inspired you. One blogger with fewer followers and one  with more followers than you. This seems obvious, but please make sure you give links to those inspiring posts/blogs so others can be inspired, too!

2. Please let the two bloggers you are shouting out know that you're doing so. Leave a comment on their blog - maybe on the post that inspired you or on their post dated closest to when you link up. They'll most likely want to know what it was that inspired you to give them a shout out. :)

3. We love Farley's "Rule of Three" which means that once you link up, please comment on the posts of the two previous bloggers that linked. Then, come back later and comment on the post of the blogger after your link.

We'd love it if you came back each month to link up! :)

    For the Love of First Grade
