2012 Bloggy Best and Brightest

Christina at Bunting, Books and Bainbridge set up a great linky to celebrate the close of 2012.

I'm relatively new to the blogging world. I got started in August of 2012 and have slowly been figuring out this whole teacher blogging process.

My Brightest Blog spot I would have to say is actually STARTING the blog to begin with.
My interactive Math Notebook posts have been getting a lot of looks.  
My Exponents Foldable and my post about the BIG TIME need for MATH VOCABULARY was pretty popular.

My BEST Blog news of the year is winning a Liebster Award.  That was a great opportunity, and came at a time when I wasn't sure if people were really interested in what I had to say.  I was nominated by Gina at Beach Sand and Lesson Plans.... I have to give her a shout out, I'm partial to her name since it is so similar to mine.  She has a great blog!

The BEST Products I created were my Wacky Wordies Fraction Task Cards and My Turkey Survival Kit. My sixth grade smarties LOVED both of these activities in my classroom.  

Finally, my Best Freebie is just a simple writing activity for Character Education that I created to go with a lesson at school on Bullying.  I used it with a book called Just Kidding.  The post link is above. I received a lot of positive feedback at school for it, and considering all of the recent events at Sandy Hook, I believe it is a lesson my students will take to heart.  You can download it here.
