Budding Blog

Before I started to hit the sign out button I noticed my buddy Meg over at First Grade Hugs and High Fives had a new post titled Budding Blog. It's a linky party for those who have 200 or less followers. I had to jump on this. I LOVE linky parties. I think it's a great way to cross paths with others and to learn new and cool things about your current buddies.

Why did you start blogging?
The number one reason why I started blogging was because I wanted to interact with some of the bloggers I had admired and stalked for a few years. I also, wanted to share my ideas and also give POSITIVE feedback to those who created products that I've used in the past. Let's just say to it's also a great way to meet cool people who understand this teaching profession we eat, sleep, breath, and live.

What is your favorite subject to teach?
I must say reading is my favorite subject to teach. I LOVE getting children excited about reading. The progress is amazing that you see in these little readers. The eagerness in them just makes my heart melt. My favorite part of the day is "Read to Self." Seeing those firsties laying around in our classroom doing "real" reading makes my heart SUPER HAPPY!!

Describe your teaching style.
My style is simple. I like structure when there needs to be structure, but I also love hands on activities. I could care less if my students choose to do work laying on a rug or standing up next to their table as long as they're working I'm happy. I'm also about praise, praise, praise. I always want my kiddos to feel they can take risks in the classroom. My children feel safe, loved, and cared about.

Give 3 interesting facts about you.
1. I'm an OCD neat freak!
2. I can't start my week off with anything in my laundry basket.
3. I LOVE LOVE LOVE thunderstorms.

Do you have TPT store?
Yes, I do! I have two great freebies posted so far about Bucket Fillers. I plan to spend the summer creating great products. Please visit my store One Fab Teacher
