Knock My Socks Off and Give Me That Crown!

Who needs a Grammy or an Academy Award when are bestowed the Liebster Award?

I would like to thank Linda Nelson over at Primary Inspiration, my agent and manager, George Clooney for his never-ending faith in me, and Brad and Angelina and the kids for their love and support along the way.  I wouldn't be where I am without them!

Go check Linda's Blog and grab her new freebie game, Long I Bullseye, to help your students master the long sound and its most common spelling patterns.

Now for the hard part!  I am supposed to award the Liebster to five newish blogs who have less than 200 followers. I ran into a little 63 minute glitch...I could only find FOUR blogs that didn't have the award yet that met the criteria.  Over an hour searching in the wee hours of the morning! The good news is that I have now been introduced to 52 other awesome blogs! So, with a tap on the shoulder of each blogger and a sprinkle of Liebster fairy dust, I present the Liebster to:

1. Kindergarten Teacher, Tara West, over at Little Minds at Work.   Oh, how I admire the energy of those K teachers!  Go grab her freebie at her TpT Store for an Estimation Jar.

2. Check out the oh, so funny blog of first grade teacher, Miss Squirrels at   Really, reading her blog at 5am had me laughing out loud...several times! I heart first grade teachers but I double heart FUNNY ones!

3. Kaci Hoffer is a Kindergarten Teacher.  Visit her blog and get to know her!

4. Second grade teacher, Ms. Lies,  over at . She has a cute Lorax freebie posted.

Yea, bloggers!  Don't forget to check out my giveaway in the post below! FREE BOOKS! Have a great day!
