Oh my goodness! I won an award! It's been a long time since that's happened and it's overwhelmingly providing me with warm fuzzies! A HUGE thank you to Mrs. Zrihen over at A Teacher's Treasure! Thanks for making my day! (You know the "pudding face" commercials? That's pretty much me right now.)
1. The Clutter-Free Classroom
I love this blog! It has GREAT tips and she puts together the CUTEST items! I was even featured during her Classroom Theme series and it pretty much made me feel like the specialest person alive. :D
One of my goals for this academic year was to incorporate (way more) technology. I've already gained a GREAT DEAL of knowledge in that department from Erin! I think it's fantastic!
3. Lesson Plan SOS
These ladies do GREAT work! I love the style of everything they make, design, and blog about. I like their ideas, their writing, their creations. I like to consider us secret BFFs. That is all.
4. The Teacher Wife
Adorability at its finest! I'm impressed by all that she does, especially for her "age." (I feel like an 80 year old man when I write things like that!) Her blog is super cute too. I'm a sucker for WONDERFUL aesthetics.
5. Teaching in High Heels
I love this blog MOST for the "What I'm Loving Wednesday" series. I like series. They're predictable and routine and, like a child, I thrive on those! Gladys has impeccable taste!
6. Mrs. Bainbridge's Class
Christina is AMAZING! I found her classroom website last year (with all the FANTASTIC teacher resources on it!) and it was then that a) I decided I liked her a lot, 2) she inspired me to do 439 projects, and c) I made it my personal goal to be just like her. So naturally, when I found out she started blogging, I was ALL. OVER. IT.

8. Thoughts of a Third Grade Teacher
When I knew I first wanted to start a blog (throwback to 2010!), I started looking at and for others' 5th grade blogs! I actually found very few. There are a TON of primary blogs out there. As I perused I came across this blog--one of my early blog list additions! I now check it daily that we're at the same grade level!
I get LOTS of great ideas from this blog. I love her "theory" as well and I commend her on her efforts as an educator as she's moved around a LOT in a short period of time! I feel this way sometimes and I sometimes consider it a hurdle to the flow of my creative juices! So--yeah. She's awesome.
