Ahh!  I'm soooo excited!  Lisa over at Stories From Second just nominated us for The Versatile Blogger Award :)  THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! :)

Versatile Blogger Award rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you with a link back to them. {Thanks again, Lisa! :)}

2. Tell 7 things about yourself.

3. Pass this award on to 15 other newly discovered blogs and let them know they received an award. (I'm not sure if I can come up with 15 but I'll try!)

Here's our list of fab newbies (so far): (we'll keep adding more...:)

A Teacher's Bag of Tricks

Here's 7 things about Lisa and Beth:

1. Lisa and Beth met last year while Beth was teaching 1st and Lisa was teaching 2nd and we've been BFF's ever since :)
2.  For our school "Teacher Talent Show" we formed a dance group called the JBE (Justin Bieber Experience) and we rocked "Justin Beaver" shirts for our performance of "Baby"...and we still hear about it! :)  Our amazing teacher buddy, Stef (pregnant and dancing to "Baby"...get it (hehe :), is also in the middle :)

3. Lisa loves wearing funny costumes!  Here we are on Dress Like Your Favorite Book Character Day!  (She's Fancy Nancy, of course. :)

4.  We're both obsessed with Thinking Maps!  We also use a lot of Thinking Maps: Write From The Beginning in our district and have seen huge differences in our writing scores!  Be sure to check back for more TM freebies :)

5.  We both LOVE dogs!

6.  We are both obsessed with Pinterest!  If you haven't been there, WATCH OUT...hehe :)

7.  We both LOVE being teachers and are always pushing ourselves to learn and grow.  I know, cheesy, but true :)

**THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR FOLLOWERS!!! :)  It means so much to us to click on the sight and see 10 followers!  It's amazing and we're so grateful to have your support and kindness to keep us going :)  WE LOVE YOU!!! :) ***

Didn't realize you guys were so new to the blogging world! Congrats on growing so quickly. What's your secret?

I'm a week old & have learned a ton. Can't get my comments to number, but will try again another day. I only have 9 followers. :( Would love for you to stop by. I am having my first give away!
