Liebster Award!!

Thank you to Krissy from Krissy's Kindergarten for nominating our blog for the Liebster Award.  It's an award for new bloggers and to help them gain more readers/followers.  I will answer the 11 questions from Krissy and then I will need to find 11 other blogs with less than 200 followers.

1. Why and how long ago did you start blogging?
I began my search for ideas on other blogs for my kindergarten classroom and teamed up with another K teacher at my school and began our blog in 2013.

2. What one word sums up the heart of your blog and why
Diverse...our teaching styles are different, but we are able to share ideas and use them effectively in our classrooms.

3. Is there something you learned late in your blog journey you wished you knew before?
Same like Krissy...being consistent and wondering if my choices to post are good ones.

4. What is your favorite past time other than blogging?
I like doing crafty things (baby shower diaper cakes) and baking.

5. How many hours per week do you dedicate to your blog?
NOT ENOUGH...I had hoped to blog once a week, but life can get crazy.

6. What category of blog posts do you enjoy the most?
I love Farley's Monthly Currently, classroom organizations, and technology.

7. Where does your blog inspiration come from
The first blog that I followed was Kindergarten Crayons by Fran Kramer.  She has lots of great tips and ideas.

8. Which post that you've written are you most proud of?
I liked my directed drawings and artsy ones.

9. Is there any post you have been planning to do, but have postponing it for a while now?
Five for Fridays and the Good Idea one....just don't know if I could come up with 5 things or if my idea would be a good one for others.

10. What is your favorite aspect of blogging?
Meeting other educators and sharing ideas.

11. Which recipe, project, or idea on my blog would you be most likely to try yourself?
I have been looking at the Common Core Books for LA and Math for awhile...Will be picking a copy up after payday tomorrow :)'s my 11 nominees...

Leslie from Color, Cut and Glue

Stephanie Ann from Sparkling in Kindergarten

Laura from Luv My Kinders

Karen from Kennedy's Korner

Cherilyn from Mrs. Harrison's Hive

Lindsay from Just Keep Teaching

This was harder than I had thought and I hope I didn't double tag some.  

Now that you've been nominated, here are the "official" rules for accepting:
1. In your post, link back to the blogger who nominated you as a thank you and "shout out."
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you (the ones I answered above).
3. Nominate 11 blogs of your choice that each have less than 200 followers. Provide them with 11 questions to answer or have them answer the questions above.
4. Let your nominees know that they've been nominated and provide them with a link to your post so that they can accept.
5. Send your nominator a link to your post so that s/he can learn more about you as well! (You can just put your post link in the comments below!)

Looking forward to meeting new "bloggers" soon,

Woohoo...It's Fall Break.

I can't believe that we finished up with the first quarter this past Friday.  We are officially 1/4 done with our school year.  I am pleased with the progress my little kinder kiddos have been making, but there's still a lot to learn and do.

It's time for Faley's October Currently...I love seeing what other fellow educators are up to.  Here's what I am up to this October..

Fall Break had officially started this past Friday at 2:05 p.m.  I am looking forward to sleeping in a little longer, but it won't be too long since I will be dropping off my hubby at work this week...we only have 1 car.  

I have to begin report cards and get ready for Parent Teacher Conferences since those will be starting soon after we return from Fall Break.  I also need to get moving on my Wonders PD's due sometime in November.  So maybe, I won't have too much time to relax this Fall Break.

I love living in Hawaii, but the heat and humidity is ridiculous.  Temperatures are reaching 90's and my portable only has oscillating fans.  We are roasting in there...not fun to be all sticky by 9:00 a.m.  Hoping that the trade winds will return soon and make it somewhat bearable to work and learn in our classroom.

Since we will be beginning our Go Math chapter about teen numbers...I will be posting I can compose teen numbers  for free for the whole month of October.

 I can compose teen numbers

Happy Fall...xoxo,
