Best Thing I did
I opened my TPT store in 2012! I have to admit, I must have been hiding under a rock, because prior to that, I had only heard about TPT in passing. I joined in late 2011, but didn't officially 'open' my store until Jan. 2012. I had my first sale on Jan. 1 :) It was the best thing I could have ever done! TPT helped out with the twin's birthday and Christmas. It is now growing our new Disney fund! Can't wait to head there in the spring!!!
Looking back at my bloggy year, my best post has to be My Heart Will Go On! It was a post I did right after our day aboard the Titanic. It was a great day and I love looking back at how much fun it was. I absolutely love the Titanic and enjoyed seeing how excited my students were to learn about it.
This leads me into my favorite product of 2012....My Titanic Lapbook! It was neat to have an actual passenger who traveled on the Titanic for each of my students to become during our unit. It was fun to make, and have gotten feedback that other's are enjoying it in their classrooms!
My most popular product is my Soil unit. It was one of my first products I created back in January. I was and am still super proud of this product.
Best Freebie Shared
I created a Reading Comprehension poster set and posted my Making Connections poster from this set as a freebie. It was my most downloaded product and one that many of the teacher friends in my district ask for.
Best Bloggy FriendsThis year has been a great year of many new bloggy friends! I loved going to the Carolina Blogger Meetup and meeting so many bloggers I felt like I had 'known' for the past year. Here are a few:
Amber is my # 1 bloggy supporter and real life friend! We began this adventure together and couldn't imagine it without her. I love getting together with her and bouncing ideas off her. She has great ideas that she uses in her classroom.
