How Do I Participate in Math Monday Blog Hops?

You may have read that Math Monday Blog Hops are changing this fall. You'd like to participate, but you're not sure what it means. Here it is, in a nutshell:

You want learn about new teaching lessons, resources, and ideas. 
That's super simple! Follow links to ideas from other educators on themes that interest you. Each week will contain a new theme. If you want to come back to a theme to see what new links have been added, visit the Math Monday Blog Hop Index to find links to this year's themes.

You want to post links to your math ideas: lessons, resources, and reflections.
While this is also easy, it contains a few more steps.

Let's say you post a blog entry on your favorite math-related children's book. You want to share it with the world. You will:
  1. Go to the Math Monday Blog Hop Index. If a link on your topic is live, follow it. If a link on your topic is not live, save it until the week that topic is featured.
  2. When you arrive at the Blog Hop that best fits your post, look for the blue "Add your link" button.

  3. Click on "Add your link."
  4. You will go to a page like this:
Add the link (cut and paste) that goes DIRECTLY to the blog entry that relates to the theme. Give it a title that will capture the interest of readers. Add your email; it's required, but goes to no one but me and the Inlinkz file.

If an image is offered, select the one you wish to use. If you don't like the way it's centered, click on "Crop" and move the cropping device as desired. Push DONE and you'll soon be able to see your entry in the Blog Hop!

Note: Please do not post links to commercial products...i.e. things that you are personally selling. Freebies are great. Book reviews, too. But please save TPT/TN and other commercial products for another time. THANKS!

Entries, by theme, will stay open until June 1, 2014, for the 2013-14 school year. Come back regularly to add new posts and to learn new ideas from others!

Have any questions? Post below. And happy blog hopping!!! :)
