WOW! Thanks Teacher Hub!

All I can say is WOW!  I just found out that TeacherHub.com did a "Shoutout to 26 Awesome K-12 Teacher Blogs," and I was one of them!  Honestly, I can't even begin to tell you how thrilled I am.  Thanks you so much TEACHER HUB!
The first link above will take you to their top 26 list.  I was included in the 5th grade blog category along with Runde's Room, an excellent blog that I also love to read.  I link to the article not to toot my own horn, but to tell you the other 25 blogs are all well worth checking out.  Along with grade level categories, they have categories for Best Resource Blog, Best Ed Tech Blog, Best SPED Blog, and much more.  In addition to the 26 blogs they name, they provide additional links to even more blogs in some of the categories.

I have been a longtime reader of Teacher Hub, so it is especially meaningful to me that a site I respect and enjoy took notice of my little blog.  If you are not familiar with Teacher Hub, please go check them out!  On their home page you will find tabs for information regarding lesson and teaching tools, education news, professional development, real teacher blogs, contests and community, as well as info on graduate programs.  There really is something for everyone at this site.  Here is the blurb from their web site that tells a bit more about them:

TeachHUB.com is the online resource center for educators provided by the K-12 Teachers Alliance.The K-12 Teachers Alliance is a professional organization dedicated to saving K-12 educators time, money and energy while ensuring the utmost quality in the classroom. With so many standards, schedules and students to keep educators busy, it is no wonder you feel overworked, underpaid, and underappreciated.
It is the mission of the K-12 Teachers Alliance to ease the challenges, stresses and burdens facing today’s educators. We cut through the myriad of resources available to teachers and principals to provide a one-stop shop of only the most useful, affordable, or free information and assistance available.

One of the reasons I started my blog stemmed from the fact that I am also a strong believer that the best teaching happens when teachers learn, plan, and teach as a community of professionals that share thoughts and ideas.  I wanted to share what I do.  As you can see, Teacher Hub has a similar philosophy.   If you have a chance, visit their site and browse around. 
Once again, thank you Teacher Hub!

Just a quick note to those that have asked for the rubric I used for the t-shirt book talks.  I only have a hard copy of the rubric and directions, and I was planning to bring them home, scan them, and post them this weekend.  Unfortunately, we had a "thing" at dismissal on Friday, and I completely forgot to grab them when I was finally able to leave the building.  I will do my best to get them up this
week.  Sorry for the delay!

Finally, I wish you all a very HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY tomorrow.   I will be spending the day with my mother, so I'll be back on Monday with a new post.

  3. Are you still possibly able to send your book talk rubrics?!? I know this is a CRAZY busy time, so no worries if it doesn't work. Just thought I would check before I started trying to create one myself!

    Thank you!

    1. Katie, I am so sorry. I can't seem to find the rubric I used. It wasn't in the file I thought I stuck it in, and I don't have a saved copy. I found a rubric online and just printed it and whited out a couple of areas and wrote in my own thing. I will keep looking, but I don't want to hold you up.
