Blog Awards

I was nominated for the Liebster and One Lovely Blog Awards. I already have both awards, but I wanted to thank these creative and inspirational bloggers for the nominations. I hope you will stop by and visit their blogs.

Amanda
Hoppin Into First
You'll see her "before" classroom pictures on her blog. She's moving classrooms this year, and so she's  starting to get ready for the new school year. It'll be fun to see how her classroom progresses.


Julie
The Teaching Bug!
Check out Julie's post on classroom organization. She has a great way to save make up work for children when they've been absent. She also has a FREEBIE "While You Were Absent Folder Cover" you can download.


Stacy
Leading and Reading
You will have to read her post today. It's her "What's Your Guilty Pleasure?" response to a Linky Party. Do you have any of the same guilty pleasures?


Candace
005 Watkins' Way
Candace also has a list of guilty pleasures you'll want to read. Along with her list, she's posted an "In our classroom" FREEBIE that you'll want to check out.


Hillary
Little Miss Bartee
Don't miss out on a "Game Rules" poster that you can download for FREE. It describes behaviors for children when they win or lose a game.


The following amazing bloggers nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you. I'm honored.


Kristi and Crystal
Teaching Little Miracles
They have a post about some first grade blog giveaways. You'll be able to see Kristi's post on classroom desk arrangement ideas.

Make sure you read her post about Pinterest and eduClipper and some great finds.

7 Random Facts About Me

1. I teach at the the same elementary school that I attended as a child.

2. I love to play board games . . . which is what a group of us do on GAME NIGHT at my sister's house.

3. I am a PUG LOVER and have 2 precious girl pugs.




4. I am a VERY early riser. I'm at my best in the morning and get so much done then . . . before the hustle and bustle of the day begins.

5. My favorite dessert: cheesecake - plain New York style cheesecake.

6. And with that cheesecake, it's got to be coffee {black, please}. I always have coffee first thing in the morning.

7. I love hanging out at bookstores and libraries. I wish I could buy all the books I want for my classroom, but the library is a wonderful alternative. I check books out by the armful.

    1. You guessed it! I'm glad I don't live to close to a Cheesecake Factory (my favorite cheesecake). I'd be in big trouble if I did.
