Thanks to Shibahn at and Ms. B at Http:// AND to Ms. Cranfill at for nominating me for a Liebster Award. I guess the third time is the charm. ;) I am finally sitting down to answer the Liebster Award questions, and to nominate 11 other teachers for their blogs.

Here are the details:

Planning the lessons and meeting the needs of all my students.
2. What is your least favorite thing about teaching?
Filling out report cards!
3. What advice would you give to a first year teacher?
Take it one day at a time, and one step at a time. Start with the most important things to master first, and go from there.
4. What do you find to be the hardest part about blogging?
Finding the time to share all my ideas! ;)
5. What is your favorite teaching blog?
Any teaching blogs with freebies and technology ideas that are relevant to first grade. 6. Since I am getting into the Christmas spirit, what is your favorite Christmas movie? Hands down, It's a Wonderful Life!
7. What is your favorite Christmas tradition?
Christmas Eve with my parents at my house. We let the kids open some of their presents.

We read Gingerbread Man books, and made our own Gingerbread Man ornaments! We also have a party, eat yummy snacks, listening to Christmas music, and play a game.
9. What is the best purchase you have made on TpT?
Anything FREE!!!! ;)
10. If you had to be something other than a teacher, what would you be?
I cannot imagine anything outside of the education field. I'd like being an LMS or a curriculum specialist. Maybe even curriculum writing. If I had to go outside the educational field, I'd work for a children's advocacy center where I could help prevent child abuse.
11. What is your favorite children's book?
Dr. Seuss books have a special place in my heart. ;)

Here are the questions that I'm asking the bloggers I nominate! (Some are borrowed from others.) ;)
