Blogs That Make Me Smile!

Happy Labor Day Weekend. Having been named a Top Ten by Tamara at TLC this week, it's now my pleasure to unveil my Top Ten. One of mine (4th Grade Frolics - yay Tara!) already got it from someone else, so without further ado, hats off to ten of the teaching blogs that make me smile:

Runde's Room - Jen is SO creative you simply must go visit her room.
Learning With Mrs. Parker - Sylvia's sunny spot will make you smile.
Books That Heal Kids - Rox's reviews are right on; check out her book shelf.
Jasztalville: Where Inquiry and Creativity Meet - EnJOY the journey with Ms. Jasztal.
Sunny Days in Second Grade - You will LOVE Denise for her dynamic energy and enthusiasm.
School Counselor Blog - Danielle's top-notch school counseling ideas will amaze and engage you.
Rainbows Within Reach - Debbie adds music and color to your educational adventure.
Fun In First - Jodi's FUNderful site will leave you wanting more.
Mrs. Kincaid's First Grade - Another first-grade FAVE; you'll love Mrs. Kincaid.
Sweet Blessings - Shannon inspires me with her positivity and passion.
UPDATE:  I just noticed that Runde's Room got the award from another blogger (congrats, Jen!) just prior to my post so I'm adding another pick.
Primary Graffiti - Mrs. Saoud's sensational site speaks for itself, so skip on over!

Any blogger can give this award to those that make you smile!

1. Just write a blog post proudly displaying your Top 10. Make sure that they do not already have an award.
2. Contact these bloggers by leaving them a comment with 2 links- a link to your blog's Top 10 post AND this post's link-  so they can grab the fantastic award button below.
   Have fun affirming one another and keep on smiling!
