Background...I've been teaching for 20+ ( I could probably tell you exactly, but I don't want you to think I'm old!). I've always taught in a district where I'm the only grade level teacher. Having been in this situation I've become very self-sufficient. But along comes blogging...it's like having a grade level teacher to bounce ideas, besides soaking up & using ideas.
Blogging teachers are willing to share not only their creations (& I know this takes a lot of time-I've tried) but resources.
Thank You blogging friends. My only hope is that I have the 'stamina' (first vocabulary word 4th graders will encounter on Wednesday-1st day of school) to keep all my followers following.
