I hate having to pick other blogs because I'm always afraid I'll leave someone out! But, in no particular order, here are some of my favorite blogs with less than 200 followers:
There's something about Australia that just calls to me - it's definitely on my Top 5 Places I'd Like to Visit. Until I can afford the airfare/time off work, I will settle for reading this sweet blog from an Australian teacher. The similarities and differences between the education systems fascinate me - plus she has some marvelous freebies!
I love this blog. And I'm not just saying that to win shoes, I promise! (You have to check out the shoes she paints - I am dying to win a pair in a giveaway!) I particularly liked her class book based on Mo Willem's Pigeon!
Mandy is another of my favorite blog authors - she shares a lot of freebies and ideas. I love her Guided Reading posts!
For pure reading enjoyment, you cannot beat Waiting on Butterflies. I seriously don't know why this girl does not have more followers! She is hilarious, I love her posts! When you click over to check her out make sure to go back to some of her older posts, but beware, you might lose track of time because you'll just keep reading and reading!
Here's a new little blog I found - she shared a cute reindeer craft freebie and a holiday unit in case you're looking for some last minutes activities! She's also got her first giveaway going on until December 14th - hurry over to enter for your chance to win a $10 Target gift card!
Okay, here's where my wild side comes out (if you knew me you'd be laughing at the idea of me having a wild side, I am more Garfield than tiger if you know what I mean.) I know the rules say to pick 5 blogs, but I have to make it 6 because I can't leave out Erica. This girl leaves the sweetest comments -- consistently! On those days when I wonder if anyone actually is reading anything I write, Erica always comes along with a comment to pick me up. Her blog is also funny and she has some cute ideas!
