2012 Blog Best and Brightest

With the year coming to an end I couldn't wait to join "Bunting, Books, and Bainbridge" linky party.

Well to begin I have been very blessed in 2012!  I can't complain a bit!  YAY!  Looking back on the year I have made a couple of huge plunges that I didn't see coming along with a couple of humbling events.  

To begin "Your" favorite post was "Have you ever used Glogster?".  To read click here.   I'm new to the blogging community so all of my post have a few views, but I was ecstatic to see that this one has over 30 views and tops my list!!  The one thing I'm most curious about is an answer to my posed question, but I still don't have many comments there yet!  

My favorite post is "Kids Making Movies" because it was such a hit in my classroom.  How cool is it to get to produce your own movie trailer for a book you have read!  Students gleamed when sharing and were so motivated in creation of the videos I will keep this lesson and activity in my plans for years to come.  

An accomplishment I'm humbly proud of is my entering into the blogging world, Teachers Pay Teachers, and Teacher's Notebook all in ONE year!  I have learned so much from so many people!!  It has been so humbling that you all would even want my original creations and I can't thank you enough for your support! 

Fellow bloggers that I adore from the year are "I teach what's your SUPERPOWER".  At first I fell in love with the name, then I realized how much I admire what she shares and her many wonderful ideas.  Next is "Teaching in Room 6" I love the many ideas she shares and love reading her post!

Can't wait to read your Best and Brightest moments from 2012!!  Please share!

  1. Thanks for linking up! I've used Gloster for myself, but haven't taken the plunge for my students yet. I can't wait to check out your post on it!

  2. Oh thanks so much! You should definitely take the plunge with your students and glogster. It can be a bit confusing at first but it is one of my students favorites and because it is so new to them they love being experts! If you decide to try it please let me know how it goes! :)
