Playing Tag & New to come! 2 Free Frames!!

I have been tagged 5 times (maybe more...hehehe) and I am going to answer one set of questions in this post. I realized that trying to answer 50 questions in one post would be torture for all of you! I am going to add the other links of those who tagged me even though I haven't answered their questions yet. 

I also noticed that I am almost at 600 followers!! Holy cow!!  I am going to have a giant celebration when I reach 1000, so hopefully not too much longer...hehehe I am so thankful and completely blessed by all of your amazing talents!! I feel honored that so many of you get excited about the graphics and put the many freebies to good use!! Thank you so very much!!

Here is the first set of questions:

P.S. I am breaking the rules...on the basis that I am not sure who has not been tagged & I don't want to add another 10 questions....I will need to look through all of your blogs a little closer...LOL!

Here Are The Rules:
* Post these rules
* Answer the 10 questions that the tagger posted for you
* Create 10 questions of your own to ask the people that you're about to tag
* Tag 10 people and link them with your post (and let them know they've been tagged!)
So…let’s get to know each other a little better, shall we?

I have been tagged by Kim over @ Mrs. Collato's

1. What is your favorite thing to do with your students?
Every year, I had my students prepare a designated area for a "Kindergarten Garden". The students spent all year maintaining, harvesting and growing various veggies. It was a great way to really integrate a TON of science and gave the kids a real-life application. They always enjoyed the hard work & were so excited when they got to harvest and eat what they had planted. Students insisted on growing their own gardens in their homes and they always ate the fresh veggies from their own garden. One year, we prepared a Mother's Day Salad with lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, and onions  using veggies from our own garden!!

2. How long have you been blogging?
I started blogging in October 2011. I am still fairly new to blogging, but I absolutely love it!!

3. What is the one item you are dying to get for your classroom?
Well, I am not teaching this year, but I wanted  anything and everything I could get my hands on to  make learning  memorable for my students.

4. Where do you get most of your teaching ideas?
I have a brain full of ideas and I am inspired at all times! Ideas spring from the process of learning, the desire to learn and from continued collaborative work with great educators from all over the world!

5. Heels or Flats? (I saw this question elsewhere and I loved it)
I am DEFINITELY a HEELS kinda gal. While teaching 7th grade, we had a jeans and t-shirt day. I wore a cute pair of converse. When the bell rang, I ran walked quickly across the hall and one of my students walked passed me pretty quickly and I said, " hi" as usual. He turned around and said, "Mrs. T, I thought you were a kid!" Hehehe. I am only 5 feet tall and about 125lbs (shhhh...don't tell, I really need to work out!!), but I blend in when I am not in heels...LOL! I have worn heels since high school & I love my shoe collection!! Even my Kitty loves my heels (-;

6. How many hours a week do you spend on school outside of school hours? (Blogging, Planning, Grading Papers, etc.)
LOL! I don't even teach this year and I am still spending most of my day thinking of lessons to put together to use in the future.

7. What is your favorite font to use?
I like the Janda fonts, but I really like anything cute, but clear. If it's cute, but you can't read it or the kids can't read it - then it's worthless...I am far too creative to choose just one.

8. Where do you get your favorite clipart?
Well, I create it myself...Tehehehehe!! My alternate self, The 3AM Teacher!!

9. What is your favorite beauty product?
I LOVE everything Clinique! This is my Favorite summer product. I spray it on my face (even over make-up) and within a few seconds, my skin looks great and  replenished (I know...sounds dorky)
Moisture Surge Face Spray Thirsty Skin Relief

10. What is your favorite song to use in Education?
This is another one that is too difficult to also...I have been out of the classroom for over a year and I am a little rusty on my kid music...LOL!

Here are the other amazing bloggers who tagged me! Thank you so much for thinking of me & I will be slowly answering the questions over the next week - I wouldn't want to bore you all to death on one post...hahaha...I'll spread it out so you get a good night's sleep the rest of the week...LOL!
