Teachers, lets face it, we need hobbies! At the end of the day (or week), we need to relax and re-energize. Aside from the gardening and jogging, I have found a new hobby... Blog Hopping all of the teacher blogs I can find. It has opened up a new world of teachers and their 'tips and tricks', classroom pictures from around the world and different experiences that I'd like to try. So, when you settle down at your laptop and you need a little 'pick-me-up' a good place to start is at the Connect-a-Blog Teaching Blog which is like a hub for other great Teacher Blogs to be found! It's highly addictive but for all of the knowledge and ideas you gain from it, its worth it!
Plus it helps to put that zing of enthusiasm back in so that I can try something new with my students the next day!
And if you prefer facebook, there's Top Teacher Resources where you can find the latest updates about teacher-created resources and tips from teachers and educators alike. Happy Blog-Hopping!
