  1. I don’t know anyone else who does this sort of thing – so THANK YOU! This is a great resource, Jama…I hate that I miss so many posts around the kidlitosphere because I’m so busy with kids and work and such, so this is a trememndous help.

    Enjoy your week!


    1. Glad you find it helpful, Matt. I actually make these archives to help me keep track of my posts (helpful for linking back or general reference). Have a good week — how much snow have you gotten so far? Things are pretty quiet here today after yesterday’s several inches of accumulation (most we’ve had in 2 years).


  2. Thanks so much for doing this, Jama! I often remember having seen a poem on your blog, and months later can’t quite recall when & where, so this will be an easy way of tracking it down.

    We’re supposed to get between 12 & 18″ here in MA!! It’s coming down very lightly now 🙂
