Throughout November, the subject of "being thankful" gets brought up a wee bit extra in our classrooms. What better way to to say "thanks" than through a linky on our blogs!
Two awesome linky parties are happenin' and I thought I'd join in to party with these fab ladies!

I often feel like a young spring chick in this blog world amongst some big celebrity teacher bloggers, but it's safe to say they have all embraced me and welcomed me into this world with open arms.
I am forever thankful for the ladies below (amongst MANY others).
People I am thankful for:
*Stephanie Moorman of Teaching in Room 6 (the fab girl holding the linky party!) became a quick favorite of mine. When I read her blog, I seriously think I want to be her ;) I am awed by the care and creativity she puts into every single lesson. Her ideas on creating Colonial flags, creating hanger people biographies, and taking a stand about what you believe in are personal favorites of mine. She helped me realize that some of the best "assignments" and lessons come out of a great project!
*Kristen from Ladybugs Teaching Files for being a sweetheart and inspiring me to keep blogging. I am a newbie blogger and a rather young teacher. Being a young teacher (I'm sure many can relate...) I often feel that my ideas are novice. When Kristen contacted me this past summer because she loved an idea I had written about, I was FLOORED. Are you kidding me? One of my teaching blog idols likes one of my ideas? ME? The kindness and feedback she gave me honestly brought me to tears. You can read about it HERE!
*Most importantly, the community of teacher bloggers and readers that have helped me to be a better teacher. The blogging world has put a little extra pep in my step and has helped me have the best teaching year I have ever had. Let's face it, being creative makes everyday so much fun. I am doing things with my students that I never dreamed possible and it is all because of the amazing network of teaching bloggers that are sharing their ideas, and for those that allow me to share mine with them. :)
Click HERE and HERE to link up and share some of your thankful thoughts, and I'd love to hear what teaching blogs have done for many of you readers as well that don't have blogs to share! Thanks for stopping by!
