The Versatile Award

 I want to thank Louanne from My Kindergarten Kids and Mrs. Greene's Kindergarten Korner for nominating me for The Versatile Award... it is my second to date. I did not know of their blogs but now I do. I so love these blog awards. I am still surprised that anyone notices me. I am so thankful that I do offer enough to keep someone beyond me learning and having fun.:)

Blog Award Rules...
1. Thank the person that nominated you with a link back to them.
2. Tell 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass this award on to 15 newly discovered blogs and let them know that they've received an award!

I got #1 done at the beginning of my post! Here are 7 things about me:
  1. I am originally from Long Beach, California. I especially miss CA now when Virginia has the "mix-it" winter weather. Mix it with a little freezing cold at the beginning of the week, may be some snow flurries at the end of the week...
  2. I love to do the Chicken Dance and the Tooty-Ta songs with my students. That is when you can see me get really silly.
  3. My favorite colors are purple, blue, black and green. My favorite colors reminds me of the colors of a black eye healing. I know a weird analogy sorry.
  4. I want to be more organized... I know it helps my students to be too but just the thought of changing things (or in my case buying things) doesn't make organization sound very fun!!
  5. I love to write... I can often be found stringing rhyming words together and creating a song for my students to sing or writing just to get my thoughts in order.
  6. I love to travel and often go by myself. I love to go to B & B's and to visit wineries. My next destination I hope will be San Antonio, Texas this summer to visit the Riverwalk and Six Flags. I am trying to visit all the Six Flags, I have been to 5 already!
  7. I LOVE TO BLOG HOP! I am so glad that I found blogs this summer because I enjoy it so much. I have even gotten my colleagues in on it and they even get giddy when they find something new to try on a blog they have seen. I love finding new ideas or reading about what other classrooms are doing. It is is like the biggest pen pal service ever but created by teachers!

New Blogs:
 I did not know that there were so MANY kindergarten blogs, so many I haven't even found yet! I can't wait to go search for more. Exciting!

Beg Borrow Steal (I had to check out the blog... fun name and I am glad that I did!)

Tales of a Teacherista (1st grade blog)

 Okay so this list was difficult to compile. There are still many more blogs I haven't found yet... how many blogs do you think my Google Reader will hold before it says "Stop! No more"?
