I'm SO Excited! And I Just Can't Hide It!

I LOVE surprises and today I received an awesome one on my blog.  Drum roll please.....

I have been nominated for TWO  Awards!  And here they are..


I'm going to "mushy gush" for a moment, but it feels really good to     know that I am adding value to this awesome teaching community of bloggers.  You all have inspired me SO much, that it feels good to contribute in my own small way.  

Most importantly, I must thank these terrific bloggers who nominated me. Please check out their wonderful blogs.

In nominating blogs for the One Lovely Blog Award, I'm going to bend the rules a bit.  I'd like to use this award to introduce you to  some of my blogger friends at Edublog.  This is the site where I will be hosting my classroom blog.  

These nominees represent classroom blogs from all over the world.  What I love about Edublog is that it can be password protected.   You are going to love these blogs and the ideas they have to share on making a classroom blog great!

Here are my nominees for the One Lovely Blog Award.

Classroom 2 Kids (Canada)
