Share-A-Blog Sunday ~ Ms. Fultz's Corner

Good Sunday morning to you!  Can you believe April is almost over already?  This year is really flying by!

In this week's edition of Share-A-Blog Sunday, Christi from Ms. Fultz's Corner stands tall in the Spotlight!

Christi does her blogging from The Buckeye State, Ohio.  Anyone else here from Ohio?

Teaching for 7 years, Christi is a 3rd grade she teaches all content areas to her students.  She has a Master's degree and a Reading Specialist License.

Listing reading and writing as her favorite subjects, Christi also says this about her blog:

"Most of my hits come for reading and writing workshop ideas, though I'm gaining on math too."

I must tell you though, I see some great math and science ideas on Ms. Fultz's Corner as well.

This is what Christi shared as one of her favorite teaching moments:

"Working with kids means there's hardly ever a dull moment, as I'm sure you know. I think my favorite was when my students found out I was engaged. One of the boys asked what that meant and another boy piped up instantly with, 'She's having a baby... duh.' So precious! I love all those moments that let me see things from a child's perspective again."

Never a dull moment, indeed!  It is so funny to hear some of the things they come up with!

Christi shared 3 things with us to help us know a little more about her:

1.  "I admired my third grade teacher so much that she honestly inspired me to grow up and be a third grade teacher too. I think she'd be pretty proud of me and hope I can be the same kind of role model for my students, no matter what they grow up to be." 

2.  "I am a terrible singer. I can't help it and it's always been that way. I sing loudly at home to my husband's dismay because it brings the joy to my heart. However, I only pretend to sing happy birthday to my students at school. I don't want to harm any of them permanently." 

3.  "I love to be crafty and find ways to tie art activities into my standards too. I think it increases motivation, effort, and excitement. I recently upgraded my embroidery machine at home and find crafting helps me balance the sometimes stressful job of teaching. I may or may not make dog clothes for our three pups. =)"

Now you know it's time for me to talk about things I've found in common with Christi.  As usual, there are quite a few!

My favorite teacher was my 9th grade Geometry teacher, Mrs. Stevens, so I can totally relate to feeling inspired to be what I am today!

I, too, can't carry a tune in a bucket...much to my husband's and sons' chagrin!

Crafting is one of my favorite hobbies and it really does help you relax and focus on something other than the classroom!

If I could sew, I would be making clothes for our 4 dogs, too!

And...we have the same school mascot...Knights!!!

After spending some extra time on Ms. Fultz's Corner, I have to say that it was difficult to narrow down my favorite thing.

I love the post Making Science Fun...I wish I had been there for that!

I also love the look and feel of her blog.  It's very fun and colorful without being hurtful on my old eyes.  I really like all the pictures within her posts as it gives you a glimpse into her everyday classroom life.

If you haven't found Christi's blog, Ms. Fultz's Corner, I encourage you to head over and check it out!

You know what to do...leave her a comment or two and tell her who sent ya!

Enjoy :)

  1. My favorite teacher was my 7th and 8th grade English teacher, Mrs. Cervone. She had this dry erase prize wheel and whenever someone got an A on something they got to spin the wheel for a prize. I never worked so hard to get all A's in my life. She was really great!
