New Look and Top 5 Posts of 2014!!

Notice anything different? It was about time for a blog makeover!!! I was THRILLED with what Megan from A Bird in Hand Designs created! 
A Bird in Hand Designs
She was so easy to work with and tolerated all my questions. :) I am in LOVE!! I love the unique feel and it's so ME! :)

I've been a terrible blogger lately and I'm not going to make excuses. If you follow Tried It Tuesday, you can link up here all month. Here is the new Tried It Tuesday button for the next time you link up. It will be official with the new link up of February (second Tuesday of the month!).
So, I'm finally linking up with my BBB, Jivey from Ideas by Jivey to share my top 5 blog posts of 2014. Better late than never! Thank you Jivey for keeping the link up open all month! :)
This post was all about using Post Its in graphic organizers for ELA. Now that I teach only math, I would like to find some more creative ways to use Post Its in math. I would love to hear how you use them in math!
This was a post from last January about New Year's Resolutions that my class made. See the post here for details on the great product I used by my BBB, Joanne at Head Over Heels for Teaching!

In this post I shared how I teach Folktales in my ELA classroom. 
It included links to many resources that I used!

In this Tried It Tuesday from last June, I shared about how I used a book challenge throughout the year in my ELA classes. 

The most visited blog post from 2014 was focused on teaching Text Structures. This standard seems to be weak county wide on our state assessment. We spent a lot of time on it but it is still tricky! Check out the post here for some links to text structure resources!

Have a great week everyone!
