My First Blogger Award!

So, almost a month ago one of the AMAZING blogs that I followed nominated me for the Liebster Award.
So the rules of the award go as follows:
  1. Show you appreciate the blogger who nominated you with a thank you shout out!
  2. Nominate 5 other blogs, who have 200 followers or less, by leaving them a comment
  3. Post the award on your blog
  4. Keep up with the blogs you've given the award never know when they are going to hit the blog world, big time!
Mrs. Virdell's BlogSo, I have to first thank Mrs. Virdell's Blog I love connecting with other special educators, and she has some great stories of a 18+ Transition Program.  Be sure to follow along and see all of the amazing things she does with her students.

The next part is the tricky part!  I follow more than 200 blogs.  There are SO many amazing ones for very different reasons.  It was so hard to not only pick 5, but also pick 5 that had less than 200 followers.  If I left you off my list, know that it is not because I don't love your blog! Most of my blogs deal with special education and adapting curriculum.  I know that I am always looking for other blogs with the same mindset, so I am choosing a few of my favorite from that area :)

1.  An Adapted Curriculum Classroom is a great blog with great resources in using the Unique Curriculum. I am always looking for new ideas and new ways to integrate the Unique Curriculum.
2. AAC Girls is a companion to a great to the website with lots of ideas.

3. Eat. Pray. Teach. This is a Fantastic blog that I found via twitter. @Room5friends is a Special Ed. Teacher/ Intervention Specialist for students with moderate to intensive special needs in grades K-3 and has some great ideas she does in her classroom.

4. The Autism Teacher is another member of my PLN.  Nicole is an amazing teacher for children with autism and other abilities in a special education classroom.

5.  Sped-Adventures ... adventures of a special education teacher  I teach a class of students with severe multiple impairments in a center-based special education school. My students range from 9 to 14 years old, and all have moderate to severe cognitive impairments as well as physical and/or other disabilities. I am in my 8th year of teaching, and my 3rd year with this disability level. I love my job and my students and am always looking for ways to improve!

I know there are so many that I have left off the list.  Go follow these blogs and check out my blog list for my others.

One reason this blog took so long to write (and I have been behind in blogging in general) is because Destination ImagiNation has taken over my life!  Next blogs up will be about Destination ImagiNation and calendar time.  Have a Great weekend!


  1. Thanks so much for the award, Andrea! Also thank you for that great list of other special ed blogs! I'm always looking for new insights, and there are so many great teacher bloggers out there!
