Welcome to the Party!

My goodness, I am not quite sure what is going on, but I am LOVING it!  I have had so many more visitors to SunScholars in this last week... and so many new faces sharing at last week's link party.  SO happy to have you all here!

I have been very busy with a make-over of my Summer Learning Program.  I am sharing each week as it is complete over at Teachers Notebook (find a link on my sidebar, or under the tab "Summer Learning Program".  I will make the entire 12 week program available at a discounted price as soon as I get through them all... so stay tuned!

I am thrilled to have you here!  Thanks for sharing your amazing ideas with us!  I am so happy to be featuring you each week.  Here are some of my favorites from last week's party...
