Fern Smith is having a linky party on her blog, Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas! Not only is this a great opportunity to reflect my own year's blogging, but it's also a chance to reflect on lots of other blogs and what's successful in the blogging world! Although I'm a little inhibited by some of the large number of views on what I've seen so far on the links, I have to admit I'm pretty proud of my top blogs!
In the top spot, with 953 views is Band Aid or Lasso. This one is about a couple of tricks I use to help the kids remember when to use apostrophes.
In the second spot, Five Tips For Teaching Reading Using Recent Brain Research with 629 views.
Finally, in the third spot with 622 views was Perfect is the Enemy of Good.
Interestingly, 2 of the 3 posts were written in August, when I was a very beginner at blogging. (Although I'd hardly consider myself experienced yet!) I was a little surprised that the third post did as well as it did, as it was just my frustration with myself getting my room set up. I was hoping to see that type of popularity with posts like Did You Check for S.P.U.N.C? or Brainy Kinesthetic Vowel Sounds.
But it was good to reflect. And I'm looking forward to spending more time reflecting on the top 3 posts on other blogs!
