We are linking up with Blog Hoppin’ again today for “Three for Thursday”. We are starting school on Monday and are CRAZY busy trying to get ready, so it’s just me (Ericka) posting today. Tina and I loved seeing Kasey’s classroom on our blog yesterday, but we weren’t quite picture ready….future post coming. We have also really enjoyed seeing everybody’s classrooms…hello, teachers are SO inspirational and creative! Reading all the suggestions for new teachers, well the timing couldn't be better with our school countdown moving so quickly. Hey folks, let’s be honest, we all need a little refresher on the things we need to be doing to keep things fun and fabulous! Okay, so without further adieu:
My Favorite Font: Okay, so I thought this one was going to be hard to pick, but then I realized that I totally have a go to font, that’s DJ Chunky! Woot, woot. So cute! (You’re looking at it, isn’t it fun?!) The other font I am using is ABC bulletin, LOVE!
Favorite Blog: This one is an easy one for me. I have to admit there are a ton (read:TON) of blogs out there these days that I love! So many teachers have it going on! When we first started our little “blog stalking” adventures I kept seeing this fabulous blog “What the Teacher Wants”. Now, I love it for so many reasons. First and foremost their stuff is great for any grade, but really applicable for 1st and 5th which is what Rachelle and Natalie teach, so makes sense! I have used Rachelle’s ideas and printables for my classroom so many times I feel like I owe her royalty fees! Then I kept thinking “I recognize her name”, it was bugging me bad. So, let further stalking begin. I looked her up on facebook. Lo and behold we share a lot of friends. Turns out, Rachelle and I went to the same University, we were both President of our local Alpha Phi sorority chapter (I think I was a decade, yikes, before her) and we teach one town apart in the same school district! So fun! So short story long, we eventually met at a common core district training and I feel like I’ve known her forever. If you have not done so (which does not seem possible) go check out www.whattheteacherwants.blogspot.com It is awesome!
Favorite Online Resource: Ding, ding, ding! Winner, winner chicken dinner! PINTEREST is my favorite online resource. I have posted of my
addiction love of pinterest before, but SER-I-OUS-LY, if you are a teacher you can consider it your duty to be following all of the fabulous teacher boards. So many great ideas in one place! Amazing! Click on our names to follow our boards!
