You are my Sunshine...

I am so thankful to Mrs. Saoud, from Primary Graffiti  and Jennifer from Rowdy in First Grade for giving me the Sunshine Award! I thought there was a 3rd person but I can't find the comment of who said it. :/
Here are the rules for accepting this award:
1. Thank the person who gave this award and write a post about it.
2. Answer the following questions below.
3. And pass the award to 10~12 fabulous bloggers, link their blogs and let them know you awarded them.

My answers to the questions:
  • Favorite color? Charcoal Gray & Black
  • Favorite animal? Cats
  • Favorite number? 99
  • Favorite drink? Believe it or not I love water, I also enjoy Yerba Mate green tea daily and my fav carbonated drink is Ginger ale.
  • Facebook or Twitter? Neither, although I think Blogger should be one of them.
  • Your passion? Reading.
  • Giving or getting presents? Both, but I think I love buying for others a bit more.
  • Favorite day? Day of the week- Friday- There is an informal-ness about it. Plus I love staying up late. Also, many of my fav shows have been moved to Friday so it is quite a treat.
  • Favorite flowers? Not really sure but I like orchids a lot. Maybe the phalaenopsis-bellina:
Jennifer said... "Now to pass this on to ten other blogs. This is SO VERY TOUGH because I follow so many blogs and I stalk them ALL. I realize some of them have already received the award but TOO BAD!" and I couldn't agree with her more.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Being an ELL teacher I thought this was apropos.
I want to start by saying a quick thanks to my readers. For those of you that I know personally to those of you I've never had a chance to chat with and all those in between. Thanks for coming back day after day to read my crazy tales and ramblings.

For 4 days now, I've been watching and waiting for today to post what I am thankful for. So here goes...
What are you thankful for in your classroom?
Obviously I am thankful for my students, it's true, I've been telling them since last week! I enjoy going in to work every day and watching them learn and grow. I am thankful for my two wonderful team mates without which I would go nuts. With that said I am SUPER grateful for my district provided MacBook. I especially love my purple Speck see-thru satin case. With out this baby I'd be lost.

What 3 blogs are you most thankful for?
This is HARD because there are so many wonderful blogs out there. 3 doesn't really cover it. However, if I have to chose just 3 these are the ones.

HOWEVER, I think these blogs deserve an honorable mention because I love them too!  In no particular order...

What guilty pleasure are you most thankful for?
Well, you see I was going to post all the books I am reading. I LOVE reading, but if this is "guilty" pleasures I have to say it would be Glee. I could really care less about the story line, what I REALLY love is the numbers. Even though sometime I think they leave a lot to be desired, I come back week after week to hear what they are doing next. :P

What are you most thankful for?
-First, I am thankful for my health. I am grateful to my friend who introduced me to my ridiculous diet, way to live, that helped me change my life.
-I am thankful for my job, which I enjoy every day.
-I am thankful for all you wonderful bloggers out there that inspire me and so many others.
-I am thankful for my books, my series, Harry Dresden (which I am currently on), Alpha and Omega, Mercy Thompson. Wait there is more, the latest one, which hasn't been read yet, but I can't wait for is the Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices. All of which I grab any moment I am not reading your blogs or making lesson plan templates. With out my book I think I would go insane.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and don't eat too much!
