I am linking up with Bunting, Books, & Bainbridge for 2012's Best & Brightest Blog Linky party.
It has only been about 2-3 months since I have really got into Blogging and I am really glad I did. It's been the best way to get great ideas, buy wonderful TPT products, and see how other educators do some things differently in their classroom. Talk about real INSPIRATION! I also started a TPT Shop about a month ago, which I am also glad I did. With me not working this year due to being back & forth between Canada it helps out some. I am gradually getting the hang out everything and trying to improve on my technology skills.
One of the first TPT products I made were the Snowman Word Problems and Snowman Ten Frame Counting Number Sentence. I find these very useful in kindergarten when I am beginning to teach word problems to young children who are beginning to learn how to read. Even though it's a simple printable it was a common purchase among TPT buyers.
One of my favorite blogs from 2012 was a super short and simple blog about a Blogging Tech Tip. I had always wondered how bloggers were able to add their blog link at the end of a comment when I first started blogging, and well Classroom Compulsion gave me that tip! I seriously have to refer back to that blog post every time I comment on some one's blog because I just can't ever remember what exactly to type.
I have many favorite 2012 blogs that I think are just fabulous, but here are my main squeezes that I refer to for great ideas, inspiration, or just to glance at every now and again- 2nd Grade Shenanigans,
Apples and ABCs, Oh Boy 4th Grade, Tunstalls Teaching Tidbits, and saving one of the best for last.... Smedleys Smorgasboard. I don't think I can narrow it down to just one of their blog posts because these wonderful teachers are always inspiring others with what great things they do in the classroom.
