Pay It Forward

I got a package from my good friend Kimberly in Maine. You know her from 1st in Maine. (If you don't know her, go introduce yourself and find out what she's reading. She always has great recommendations!)  It wasn't just any package. It contained special items that were chosen to represent her beautiful home state of Maine. Take a look at all this awesomeness!
Raise your hand if you want to meet at  Nonesuch Books for
coffee Saturday morning!

I didn't have Blueberries for Sal in my classroom library...Now I do!

I love this moose sun-catcher. I wish we caught more around here in
the winter!

Kimberly got a package, too. Her package came from Sandy at Rubber Boots and Elf Shoes. Sandy blogs from Canada.

Sandy had gotten a package from Greg at Males in Early Childhood. Greg is from Australia.

Greg got the package from Kerina who is a blogger at Learning for Life in Northern Ireland.

Kerina got the package from Karen at Flights of Whimsy in Australia.

She got the package from Maureen at Strongstart who is from British Columbia, Canada.

Maureen's package came from Sherry and Donna at Irresistible Ideas For Play Based Learning in Melbourne, Australia.

Their package came from Tennessee...Scott sent it to her from Brick by Brick.

Scott had the package sent to him from What Do We Do All Day in Brooklyn, New York, who got it from Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns in California, who got it from Our World Classroom who got it from Pink and Green Mama, who got it from... well I don't know where it even started! I don't even know where it may end. At this point I don't know where it will go next!

Would you like a package from my corner of the world to share with your classroom? I get to pick three bloggers to Pay it Forward to. I would love to send it as far as possible! Across the country or across the world would be great!

If you would like to receive a package from Muskegon, Michigan and would be willing to pay it forward to three others, this is what you do...

Leave a comment below telling me you'd be willing to pay if forward and I'll get things rolling. I have some ideas of genuine Michiganness things to send you, but it will be a surprise until it arrives at your door! Don't forget to leave your e-mail address!


  1. Yeah! I love that you love everything. They are special to me too.

    First in Maine

  2. WOW! I would love to pay it forward.I live in Bethlehem, PA nicknamed the Christmas City. It would be loads of fun thinking of things to share and sending them along. I will understand if you find others farther away I know Michigan is not too far from PA. Maria ~
    And ... thank you so much for being willing to be part of my Winter Exchange.

  5. wow - thanks so much for sharing the 'chain' that your parcel is part of - enjoy :) Kierna

  6. Hi Jenny! Is it too late to join in and pay it forward? Or do you already have your three people?
