For today's theme, I am supposed to link to one font I love, one blog I love, and one online resource I love.
This is sort of hard for me because I really don't design much with super cutesy fonts. My main reason is my school computer (new and old) do not allow me to download any fonts. It's rare that I create things on my home computer, which means I have to use the standard fonts that come with my computer. Maybe while reading some of your blogs today I'll get some great ideas and places to download for my home computer.
If I really did have to pick a font, I'd say one of the fonts over on Kevin and Amanda's Font Blog. She shares some of the cutest "handwriting" fonts. And they're all free! I'm sure a lot of you have used their blog before, but if you haven't, go check it out. It's amazing how many cute fonts you can find there!
My favorite blog for educators is Free Technology for Teachers by Richard Byrne. It's a HUGE resource for me. I'm constantly finding all sorts of neat sites and resources for using technology in my classroom. His blog is fantastic.
Lately, my biggest online resource has been Pinterest. It's amazing the number of teacher resources that have been "pinned" on there. I especially love this gal's collections of pins. They're so well organized and she has HUNDREDS of great ideas within her boards.
For you SmartBoard users, one of my former professors at JMU has a GREAT site full of SmartBoard lessons, all are free: Harvey's Homepage! Most are geared toward math, but not all. Lot of fun games here, too!
And finally......Worksheet Works. I'm not big on pencil and paper in my class, but this site has saved my butt before to come up with work to leave with a sub on short notice. Again, everything here is free!

Cannot wait to check out all of your blogs later tonight (or let's be real, it'll probably be this weekend when I'm not so tired!). I love finding new blogs and online resources to help me be a better teacher. Sharing is caring!
