TOP 10 of 2012


It's been a wonderful year! I'd like to thank the readers here for taking time to read, comment, share and pin the posts here. I get so many of my classroom ideas from things other teachers share, and little illuminations provides me with a way for me to pay it forward (just a little) by sharing here. I am so thankful to get to know so many wonderful folks via the blogosphere and social media. I was even lucky enough to meet several bloggy buddies this year in person! (note to self: I still need to finish that post about the meet-ups at NAEYC!)

To start the year off, I thought I'd share some of your favorite posts. These are the Top 10 little illuminations posts from 2012!

   10.  Perky Penguins In Pre-K
    9.   Jump Rope For Heart
    8.   All in A Day's Play
    7.   Pet Week Play In Pre-K
    6.   Baby, It's Cold Outside
    5.   A Gift For Dad, A Book and A Bloghop
    4.   Discovery Bottle Inspiration
    3.   Cloudy With A Chance Of Weather
    2.   Making Literacy Connections With Our Names

 And DRUMROLL, please......  the NUMBER 1 post of 2012 is:

    1.   Signing In And Out Of Pre-K

In all honesty, posts about bulletin boards are year-round hits---the number of visits to those posts far outnumber any others. I didn't include them in the list above for that reason. I thought I'd include a list of the TOP 5 Bulletin Board posts of 2012 here:

     5.  Back To School Bulletin Boards...Redux
     4.  Spring Bulletin Boards
     3.  Dr. Seuss Bulletin Boards
     2.  Fabulous Fall Bulletin Boards
     1.  St. Patrick's Day Bulletin Boards

  1. Happy New Year Ayn! Have a great 2013!

    1. Thanks, Scott!!! Hope 2013 is a banner year for you, too! :)

  2. It was great to meet you in person this year, Ayn!! Your Discovery Bottle post was my favorite ... I am planning to have the kids make their own coming up in the new year.

    All the best in 2013 ... and maybe we can meet up again in DC next year!! :-)


    1. Laura, it was great to meet you, too! It was definitely one of the highlights of my year! The discovery bottles are addictive! The kids and I are still coming up with new ideas every week! We will have a discovery bottle museum before too long--but they are great fun to make and play with!

  3. Happy New Year! All the best for 2013 and I'm off to have a quick look at some of those popular blog posts.


Thank you for visiting little illuminations. I'd love you to share your thoughts!
