Every Friday I host a meme on my blog called the
Preschool & Kindergarten Community where
moms everywhere are invited to link up and take part.
We all share the fun things our preschoolers and
kindergarteners are learning and the creative ways of
teaching our little ones. There are some amazing and
talented ladies joining up each week and sharing
WONDERFUL ideas.

The
Preschool & 5K Community began when I
decided to start posting the things that I was doing
with my {then} preschooler. I wanted to have a better
record of the things he was doing during the week and
also have a "quick reference" for others to follow.

For me, it is encouraging to click on the "Preschool &
5K Community" category on my blog and read/review
what we've done during the year. As my blog visitors
grew,  I turned my weekly report into a blog carnival
so that others could participate and everyone could get
great ideas from each other!

If you'd like to learn more about the
Preschool & 5K
Community
and how to join up, please read the
guidelines below.

Stop by and visit their blogs for more ideas!
1. How do I participate?

First, put together a post on your blog for The Preschool
and Kindergarten Community
. Tell everyone what
you've been doing during the week and post pictures if you
have them! Please be sure to include a link back to my site
so that people are able to find other bloggers that are
participating in the carnival.  Feel free to use
The Preschool
& Kindergarten Community
graphic in your post if you
would like). Then publish your post. Once you publish, copy
your permalink and head to my site. You will find my
Preschool & 5K Corner post and at bottom will be a Linky.
Add your name to the list.
Please use your permalink
and NOT the main page of your blog as your UR
L.


2. When will the links and entries be posted?

Typically my posts go up on a Friday morning, so be sure
to check on those days for the most recent post.

3. Be specific in your ‘title’.

Leave either your blog name or theme and provide an age
range for your activities. Something a little like this:

Police Officer Theme {ages 4-5}

4. In your post, please link back to the Preschool and
Kindergarten Community.
You can use a text link or
even grab the button coding from my sidebar to place the
button in your post. Having the button in your post will also
help other moms find even more great ideas to use with
their children when they are able to browse around.

I reserve the right to remove links that are not appropriate
and do not follow
the guidelines listed above.

5. Please link up posts that are ONLY PreK & K
related.

I know that there are so many things we can share with
each other, but this linky is specifically to share preschool
fun ~ not recipes, giveaways, etc… Even after the linky
closes, other moms can go back through the links and visit
posts, but are looking for teaching/learning ideas for their
kiddos. :)


6. Can I link to Preschool & Kindergarten Community
and another carnival in the same post?

Yes! :) All I ask is that you be sure to link back to the
Preschool Corner as well as the other carnival. In the
interest of being fair to other linkys around the web,
it
would be ideal not to link up to more than 3 at a
time, to that readers don't get lost.

7. Visit others!!

When you link up each week, can you take a few minutes
and visit the person who linked up just before you and say
‘hi’ and leave a note of encouragement. It’s a fun way to
meet a few more moms and also encourage them at the
same time. This isn’t a requirement, but we all know what a
short note means when we’ve worked hard on sharing with
others. :)

8. Show and Tell Posts

By linking up, you are granting permission for me to share
your wonderful ideas and pictures with others in periodic
show-and-tell posts.


9. Please feel free to email me with any questions or if
you need more explanation of the Linky tool.
