Looking Back, Looking Ahead, & Year-End Sale

I hope you checked out Barbara's Sunday Visit earlier today for an awesome free printable ready for use when you return to school.

Also, if you haven't read about my new linky party, What's Ahead for You in 2013? ~ A Year in {P}review, be sure to click in image below to go there now.  Thanks to all of you who've already linked up and joined in the fun!

Now for the Looking Back for of the title...

I'm joining in with my bloggy pal, Lorraine, from Fabulous 4th Grade Froggies for her linky, First 12 in the Last of 12.

What a fun idea to look back at the first 12 posts I made in 2012!

Here we go!

#1 ~ In With the New!!!  What to Expect in 2012... ~ Re-focusing my blog to fit better with my 'real job"

#2 ~ Teacher Workday ~ Self-explanatory...

#3 ~ My 1st Blog Award! ~ Remember when all these awards where going around the Blogosphere.  See who I passed the award on to...

#4 ~ Photosynthesis/Respiration Freebie ~ I deactivated this product in my store since it used words that are copyrighted by Thinking Maps.  We all learned a lot about copyright this year!

#5 ~ My Go-To Book -- A Linky Party ~ hosted by Stephanie at Teaching in Room 6

#6 ~ Clutter-Free Classroom Project - Week 1 Linky Party ~ Lots of before pictures from my room!

#7 ~ 14 Girls & a Flower Pot ~ LOVED this project and so did my students!

#8 ~ 7 Weekly Pins - Week 1 ~ A weekly feature that didn't make the cut.  I loved doing them, but the posts proved to be too time-consuming without enough benefit.  Still addicted to Pinterest!

#9 ~ FREE Partner Picking Cards ~ This is my all-time top download.  From TPT alone, it has almost 28,000 downloads!!!

#10 ~ Clutter-Free Classroom Project - Week 2 Linky Party ~ My plan of attack.

#11 ~ 7 Weekly Pins - Week 2 ~ It made it for a few weeks before I nixed it.

#12 ~ Classroom Pet Grant ~ I was super excited when I found out about this program.  I was even more excited when I found out I got the grant and could purchase an aquatic turtle for my classroom!!!

Whew!  So much has happened since then, but I enjoyed reminiscing about those posts.  I hope you had fun as well.

Enjoy :)
