WP. org, Here I Am!

You may notice that my blog looks totally different!  My transfer is complete.  Yay!  I am going to take a few days to get everything working.  Thank you for your patience.

WP.org-Here I Come!

I’m moving…not into a new house, but hopefully over to WordPress.org.  I feel a bit like Hermit Crab in A House for Hermit Crab by Eric Carle.  I think I’ve “outgrown” WP.com.  Not that I haven’t enjoyed you, .com; but I think the possibilities of .org are better.

Here’s how it may affect you.  Amy from Blogging With Amy has told me that I can keep my domain name; which will greatly help!  So, my Facebook fan page should stay intact.  I’m not exactly sure what will happen if you have subscribed via RSS feed or by email…sorry!  I am, however, going to offer a give away when my new blog is up and running to those who subscribe again and to any new subscribers.

I will take a break from my posts until .org is ready.  I am HOPING it will only take a few days; maybe a week.  But you know how stepping into the unknown sometimes goes!

In the meantime, please feel free to contact me via my FB page or email if you have any questions: becky(at)thisreadingmama(dot)com.

As a blogging Hermit Crab might say, “Plug-ins!  Blog buttons!  A host I can control!  The possibilities are endless.  I can’t wait to get started!”

I’ve Reorganized

I’ve been working the last day or two to reorganize my categories.  My hope is that it will be easier to find past posts.

I’ve also reorganized my blogroll to include only the blogs I follow, not websites.  If you’re looking for the websites, I’ve moved them under Resources in my navigation bar.

Just wanted to keep you abreast just in case you wondered where something went! 🙂

My “Party Post”

Last night, I visited Confessions of a Homeschooler and noticed information about The Ultimate Blog Party!  I thought I’d give it a try.  If you blog, I would encourage you to do it as well.

So what is This Reading Mama all about?  My name is Becky and my passion is teaching and living literacy.  While teaching music in a private Christian school, I was introduced to the Montessori approach.  I went on to teach K-1 in a public school, implementing as much Montessori as I could; while getting my M.Ed. in Reading.  After having children, I became a private reading tutor out of my home.  I never thought I’d be homeschooling, but here I am…and enjoying spending this precious time with my three blessings.  I just recently started a blog to encourage other mamas (homeschooling or not) that they can teach their children to read and write…and it doesn’t have to be the equivalent of pulling teeth!

Most of what you’ll find on my blog fits into these categories:

  • building phonics & word knowledge (Word Study)
  • building sight word vocabulary
  • spelling and writing strategies
  • comprehension strategies and activities
  • Teaching Tips each Tuesday for mamas regarding literacy

I hope you’ll come visit and decide to join This Reading Mama on a literacy journey!

Become a Fan of This Reading Mama

I’ve been working long hours on getting a Facebook fan page set up and successfully linking it to my blog.  You’d think it’d be easy, but I’ve managed to baffle the mind of two other people who are very computer savvy!  I do have a fan page, but it’s not working as it should quite yet.

But for now, if you’d like to become a fan, login to facebook and search for “This Reading Mama”.  Click on the button “Like” (beside the title “This Reading Mama”) and you should begin getting my posts directly to your FB wall.

Thank you for following this reading mama on a literacy journey!
