1. Welcome to Room 36 ~ A Kindergarten Blog
I REALLY enjoy reading this blog from Mrs. Williamson. Here is an idea she shared about writing for the second day of school. (I've already put this is my lesson plans)
The Very Busy Kindergarten
Sue's blog is very well written and she has some wonderful resources on there. She just posted some pictures of her classroom and I'm so envious! I wished mine looked that good. She's doing an owl theme this year (like me) and she shared the directions for this polka dot owl tree.
A Place Called Kindergarten
Mrs. Bell has the most wonderful resources for teachers - especially kindergarten teachers. She also offers all her resources for free (because we are all teachers who don't make a lot of money and already give so much of our time & money to our classes) I'm already in the process of making these super cute bookmarks for my parents on open house in September.
4. Kindergarten Kindergarten
What can I say - this is an established blog that has oodles of ideas, tips and resources. I LOVE this activity for teaching cafeteria manners.
5. Gluesticks, Games and Giggles ~ Tales from a Kindergarten Classroom
Jessie is very new to the blogging world, but I so appreciate the resources she offers on her site. She's posted loads of pictures of her classroom. I'm putting together my calendar and math area and will be using her calendar cards she created. Thanks so much!
6. Keen on Kindergarten
Meredith is also very new to the blogging scene. I used her classroom library as an inspiration for mine. Don't you just want to curl up and read a good book?
7. Kinder FuN!
Michelle is from Texas and what I adore about her blog is that she offers many of her resources in English & Spanish. So great of you have a bilingual class or an Hispanic cluster of students in your room.
8. Not Just Child's Play: Teaching Gifted Kinders
Miss Trayers offers ideas and resources for what to do with those children in your classroom that are gifted and talented. You know we all have them and it's important to serve the needs of those children as well as our kiddos that some in with no school experience at all. One of her recent posts was about the importance of playing house.
9. Mrs. Wills Kindergarten
DeeDee's blog was one of the first blogs that I found. She offers excellent resources and ideas and pictures. Fantastic!! Here is an example of her anchor charts for her daily routines.
10. I couldn't choose a 10th! There are so many other fabulous kindergarten blogs I follow I didn't want to leave anyone out - so number 10 is the entire blogging world of teacher, moms, runners and everyone else who takes the time to share yourselves with others. Thanks again!
