2012's Blog Best and Brightest


Christina from Bunting, Books, and Bainbridge is hosting a linky!  We get to showcase our best posts from our blog for this past year.  What fun!  When you finish reading mine, go join up and tell us about your blog's shining moments too!  Just click on the picture above to be taken to Christina's blog so you can link up. 

My highest viewed post was technically post in 2011, but it was only 3 days shy of 2012 and it has been my most viewed post by far!  It was a simple, little idea that I got from a workshop with Robert Probst- Tabletop Twitter.  


A fun post that was my second highest in views was my Name Fun and a Freebie post.  It was a fun post about teaching students their names and I included a freebie of reading posters.


I have a huge interest in RtI and so I frequently post about it.  RtI works and works well at my school.  Here is my highest viewed RtI post, which also happens to be my third highest viewed post this year.


Through this wonderful place called blogland, I have connected with Tammy, from Forever in 1st.  She has the best ideas and so much knowledge about writing.  You definitely want to check out her blog and read about how she teaches.  Her students are truly blessed to be in her room and I am blessed to call her my friend!  Go check out her ideas- be sure to check in each Saturday for her reflective Saturday Sayings- and then link up and show us what has been your best this year.  :)

  1. I remember the Tabletop Twitter. I just went and looked at it again. I believe it was the first post of yours that I read and commented on or at least pretty close. I've been hooked since. You're the real deal. Thank you for being a blessing to so many, including me.
