The gold star.
Remember earning a gold foil star on your paper at school? It might not have earned you a prize, but it made you feel so wonderful knowing you had done a good job. Not only that, someone recognized your effort and let you know through a five-pointed bit of shiny recognition.
Everyone appreciates that same pat on the back. Bloggers are no different. Not even this one. :0)
You have a chance to pass out gold stars.
The 2012 Fascination Awards for Special Education blogs are now ready for YOUR vote.
Only one-third of the special education blogs submitted to the 2012 Fascination Awards earned nominations. How exciting is it that Adapting Creatively made that cut! Wahoo!
The post that attracted the sponsor's attention is Five Tips for Successful Teaching at Home. The aim of this post is to encourage parents with ways to support their child's learning at home, but there are tips that teachers will find useful as well.
To Vote, head on over here:
- Make sure you have upgraded to Google Plus. If not, you will find the Google Plus UPGRADE button on the top left of the page. Creating your profile will only take a few minutes.
- Click on the double arrow in the Comments to view the entire list of nominees and look for your blog of choice. Adapting Creatively is listed first--how easy is that?
- If you hover your cursor at the end of the Blog URL, a red "+1" will appear that you can click on. It's on the same location where you can find the votes that have been cast for other blogs.
- For blogs that already have some votes, the "+1" should be found immediately beside the vote count, to the right.
You can make a difference.
Many bloggers rake in votes through Facebook or Twitter. Since my time is too limited to participate in these networks, it's all up to readers here.
Thanks so much for reading Adapting Creatively. I appreciate your presence here. If you feel so inclined, I'd love a little gold star from you that says "keep up the good work."
