Pop-Tastic Award

I was recently nominated by Charlie Roy for a Pop-Tastic Award.  I like the idea of the Pop-Tastic Awards; highlighting wonderful bloggers who may not necessarily have wide audience.  I'm honoured to be nominated by Charlie, whose blog I've been enjoying for about a year now.  My 6 nominations for the Pop-Tastic Award are...

The first 5 folks are educators that I've met in the past five months and they are doing great stuff on their blogs (and in their schools!)  My last pick, Ted Munat, is a bit of a departure.  Ted is the father of Sharky, who has Asperger's.  Ted's blog is where he writes about the joys and challenges of parenting Sharky.  I think Ted's blog will be of interest to educators; most educators will come into contact with children on the autism spectrum and it is important that we understand the challenges these kids and their parents face.  I hope you check out all of these blogs.

Here are the  Rules & Regs for the bling:

  1. When you receive The Award, please post it on your blog, linking back to the person who gave it to you.

  2. Please visit Veggie Mom’s Post , which explains the origins of The Award, and Sign Mr. Linky, so she’ll be able to keep a record of all whose Blogs are Pop-tastic! Feel free to leave a comment, too!!

  3. Pass The Award along to SIX Bloggy Friends, whose creativity merits inclusion in this circle. Link to their blogs in your Awards Post, and notify them that they’ve received The Award.

I strongly suggest looking at the other blogs that Charlie nominated.


  1. Claire, I'm honored. Thank you. I'm going to spend some time making better use of my new google reader setup before I blog on this to see what I can do to widen my circle.

    I appreciate the link to Ted's blog as anything we can do to help educators better understand "children on the autism spectrum" provides a more full perspective.

  2. @bgilgoff, I'm interested to see who you nominate!

  3. Claire, I'm floored and thrilled that you would think enough of my blog to nominate me! Thank you so much!
    Thank you for the link to Ted's blog. I spent a total of 8 months last year working in Special Ed including students with autism spectrum. The children and families have deeply enriched my life and teaching.

  4. @blogjunkie, I've really enjoyed getting to know you over the past few months through the KnowWeeks courses, your blog and Twitter. You do a great job in your blog of reflecting on what you are learning and how you are teaching. I'm interested to see who you nominate!
