More code fun…leaving your link in comments (in bold)!

February 27, 2011

I posted recently about leaving a direct link in your comments on blogs, as well as storing that hard-to-remember code in Hey! Paste It.

I learned another cool thing that I wanted to share.

I thought perhaps a link that was in bold would really stand out…and I found out you can do this! All you have to do is add some fancy b’s to the beginning and ending of your code (somewhere out there, an html expert is rolling their eyes at me!).

The code to make your link in bold is as follows:

So mine looks like this (minus the color of course):

I’m going to try it in the comment box below this post…and then go add this to the Hey! Paste it site 🙂

    Super cool! I must admit I've been trying this everywhere. I can't get it to work on FB or on Pro-teacher. It just comes out as code. I've stuck to using it when responding on blogs. It is super cool!!

    Thanks for this info. I'm sure one day I'll get around o it. I've promised myself that o would learn to imbed a document image this week I hope I can keep my promise. This week is going to be a busy one for me.

    Btw, I have to share that several teachers at my school are using your printables. When I walk by their rooms & see you wonderful work it makes me smile. I always secretly think two things. She's an ELL teacher & I know who she is. 🙂

    Now for a question (which maybe you've already answered but I didn't see)- what code do you use to make your link a different color.

    Ok, quick question if you have a sec. How long does Hey! Paste it keep the code? I haven't been able to remember the code yet so I've been using hey paste it…and when I went to use it today it was gone.


  • Jennifer June 17, 2011 at 4:40 pm

    I typed this and it works here but when I try to put it in Hey! Paste it, it's not working at all?

  • Kristen June 18, 2011 at 2:17 pm

    Hey Jennifer, I'm really not sure how long the code is stored. I didn't have a problem with mine (though I will check right now). I think your direct link might be missing something, because I can't get back to your page. I will definitely let you know if I hear anything about Hey Paste It!

  • Mrs. Mac July 8, 2011 at 6:41 pm

    I'm trying the bold…thanks for letting me "play" here. Hey, it worked! Thanks! Second time's the charm!

    • The beginning of ALLLL the due dates!! Our spring break is starting this weekend and I know I’m going to come back to a whirlwind of permission slips, forms, and project papers to keep up with!So I’ll be using these magnets to keep all of our due dates posted (and to save myself from the endless questions of when things are due!). If you’d like to see more about the magnets, please see the link in my profile ( your due dates starting to intensify yet?#somuchtodo #classroomorganization #classroommanagement #iteachfourth #iteach4th #iteach456 #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
    • My heart could just burst with happiness today. We’ve worked so hard as a community of readers this year to read as much as possible, in all the extra minutes we can find in our day.Today was our fourth grade Water Fair. The students had to present their projects in front of judges and wait patiently for the semifinals and then results...for several hours.It was a long morning for them.But I watched as so many happily pulled out their current reads while they waited, thrilled for all of the bonus reading time. ❤️❤️❤️ #fullheart #communityofreaders #readersgonnaread #iteachfourth #iteach4th #iteach456 #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
    • Giveaway Closed...congrats @ccbahr!I just listed a new resource that has really made a difference in our class.I’m sure I’m not alone in this...our list of due dates is HUGE right now!! So I’ve been keeping track of all our forms and assignments with these little magnets. They have been SO helpful for my students...and me, honestly (I can lose track of things so easily these days!). Would you like to win a set for your class? You can earn two entries by doing the following:1. Comment with an emoji that shows your feelings about due dates right now.2. Comment again and tag a friend for a second entry.I’ll announce the winning name later this evening!

    • Magnet love!! 🧲❤️ I’ve been using these due date magnets to help organize our important papers and keep those deadlines posted for my students and (let’s be honest) me as well!Because this is the time of the year when so much is going on, so much is becomes very easy for a teacher to get overwhelmed with projects, permission slips, order forms, and more!So now I post our papers, write the due date with a vis-a-vis marker and there it easy-to-see visual reminder that keeps my class and I on track.I’ll share more from this board soon...we have some other resources that are keeping my fourth grade class a little more organized during this busy season!How do you like to keep track of due dates in your class?#classroomorganization #classroommanagement #iteachfourth #iteach4th #iteach456 #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
    • My mind has been a jumble of thoughts this Sunday night, so I'm turning to google slides to help plan things out.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀This week, for example, we need to work on a couple of our routines that have become less...routine. 😬⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀This slide will give us a chance to have a chat and share strategies on keeping a clean workspace. Plus, it has visuals of how our tables should look, which is always a huge help!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Have you tried this with your class before? I think it will be a great reminder for my students this week!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#classroommanagement #classroomorganization #iteachfourth #iteach456 #iteach4th #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
    • I may have experienced a momentary feeling of dread when I saw Monday’s date as I left yesterday. 😂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀But...I absolutely ADORE these magnetic numbers. I learned about this awesome time-saver from @twoteachersinfifth (Brooke and Leah always have the best ideas!!).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀And seriously...this is the first time in my seventeen years of teaching I haven’t routinely forgotten to put the date on the board. It’s a student job to keep it updated...but even if my fourth graders occasionally forget, it just takes a moment for me to do.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I keep the numbers in a little photo storage box by the front whiteboard. The magnetic numbers are by Teacher Created and can be found on Amazon. (⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I love how easy these numbers are to see from anywhere in our room...and of course the time they save!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#teachertimesaver #classroommanagement #classroomorganization #iteachfourth #iteach4th #iteach456 #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
