Four Awesome Blog Posts That Have Lasted the Test of Time

that have lasted the test of time

I've been on summer vacation for a week now. 
Like most teachers, I've been doing some catching up on cleaning. Unlike most teachers, I haven't been cleaning my house.
 (It's rather dreadful right now, but I just don't have the energy yet!) Instead, I've been cleaning up my blog!

I realized I've been blogging for 5 years now! As with any cleaning project, I've found a lot of things I need to throw out. 
(Those first few blog posts aren't very informative.)
Just like anything, the more you do it, the better you get! 
I've tossed out a few posts, and I've updated a few posts.

But, just like any cleaning project, I've found a few gems!
Back when I first started blogging, (back in 2011 and 2012) I did a lot of guest posts on other blogs.

I realized today that those posts are still out there, and they're still pretty valuable thoughts! (If I do say so myself!)

A few years ago I did this guest post on the amazing Rachel Lynette's Minds in BloomKeeping Your Students Engaged with "Turn and Talk".
That's something I use every day, several times a day! Be sure to click the photo for the link!

Several summers ago, I had the opportunity to do a post for Really Good Stuff's blog, The Teachers Lounge about how I set up Open House at the beginning of the school year. Here's that link: Ideas for a Successful Back to School Open House.

Really Good Stuff
It was 4 years ago, but I still use these same strategies and ideas today!

Keeping the brain happy has always been important to me. Here's a post I did 4 summers ago for The Filipino Teacher: 12 Simple Strategies for Brain Fitness.


Here's another post I did about card games to practice math facts on Raki's Rad ResourcesCard Games for Fast Facts.

Who knows what else I'll find while cleaning!
