My 11 in '11!

Hello teaching blog world! Here goes my first entry to a linky party.. :)

11. Favorite movie you watched: The Horse Boy. I'm a huge documentary fan and this movie followed the  family of a boy with Autism into Mongolia to try out traditional healing methods. A combo of the incredible  love shared, the gorgeous landscapes and the heartwarming end had me hooked :) 

(It was made in 2009, but Netflix has a way of making me discover older gems)

10. Favorite TV series: Can 2 tie? Big Bang Theory and Fringe. So good.

9. Favorite restaurant: Oh my gosh, Mehfil India. A top-quality Indian buffet, close to home! 

8. Favorite new thing you tried: Having recently moved to a new area and new school rich in East Indian heritage, I've been trying my best to learn about and try all the new foods that I can. I recently learned how to make roti, a traditional flat bread. One of the best parts? Leftovers = roti-wiches for lunch the day after!

7. Favorite gift you got: A big yellow le creuset french oven! It's got a permanent spot of my stovetop and I'm trying to cook everything in it!

6. Favorite thing you pinned: I would LOVE to try this in my classroom: 

5. Favorite blog post: I stumbled upon Chalk Talk's Halloween Alphabet Song and a Few Other Ideas while doing a very general "Halloween" google seach (ie. help! Halloween is coming, what should I do with a classroom of excited princesses and spidermans?). I ended up doing 2 of the posted art projects and started exploring other teaching blogs from there :)

4. Best accomplishment: This year was a whirlwind, I graduated and within a few months, I was setting up my Kindergarten room. My very own. I have to say becoming Miss Moore and watching my little ones grow and learn and thrive has been incredible.

3. Favorite picture:  & 2. Favorite memory: My mister and I boarded our first plane together and spent two weeks in Waikiki, Hawaii. The time together, the fresh seafood, the warm evenings, the days spent poolside.. can I go back? Now? Please?

1. Goal for 2012: Keep my eyes, ears and heart wide open.

  2. Thank you for letting me know about The Horse Boy. I'm very interested in autism. My daughter and grandson are on spectrum but doing much better. I'm following you from the linky party. Standing with Clifford kinda gives it away that your a teacher. I hope you'll visit my blog.
