    Default Blogs, blogs and more blogs!!

    Good evening all,

    I know that I am not on here that much (more of a lurker) as still awaiting my first graded inspection and always seem to be busy 'preparing' especially with all the changes.

    I like to read blogs that are interesting on the early years that help me to think about my practice and how I can improve upon what I am doing.

    I like the one Alistair Bryce Clegg and recently came across Claire's Little Tots.

    Just wanted to start a thread if anyone was interested in recommending any blogs they found interesting, useful as hoping to expand!

    Many thanks.

    What's in a blog?
    There are so many bloggers...some ok.... many just not inspiring but still worth reading.
    I like to read blogs that challenge and let me think 'outside the box'

    Try Sue Cowley's 'Freeing the angel'

    It's "Clare's little tots" - you can get it on blog loving or she's got a website by the same name

    Simona don't you dare be so rude to me. I am constantly told on here to "Google" for myself. I didn't post the link because I'm on my phone and I can't. I don't know if some things get lost in translation with you but you are quite often very rude and blunt and I don't appreciate it.

    I am not rude nor blunt but factual
    All I said I had been 'unable' to locate the link
    Now I have done so I have also shared it for others to take a look.

    You just had a go at me for not sharing a link like I was purposefully trying not to help others...pathetic accusation.

    Please read my response to you...I did not accuse you of anything
    I Just asked for a link which I had not been able to find

    I do appreciate what you are saying by allowing others to do their own research but I explained clearly why I asked.

    There were also 2 previous comments in this thread were other cms had posted links...one to Teacher Tom and 2 additional ones.
    When I found the link I posted it...not sure why that is wrong?

    Thanks Simona, looks interesting.

    I like the way she has linked areas of learning to activities, always useful as a reminder :0)

    I really like it...it is a blog with a difference
    Great pictures of children cooking and their 'end products' look like the children have made them!
    I also liked her stressing her practice is 'child led'.
    Good luck to her ...I hope she continues with it.

    I told you where it was located. I wasn't able to link to it from my phone. There was no need to be so snotty towards me pointing out that you all help me AS IF I wasn't trying to help you.

    Yes and then sarcastically added that "we all do for you". Why are you now backtracking after your vicious comment? I wasn't not putting the link up on purpose I wasn't doing it because I can't from my phone

    Right ladies do you think that now we could keep all comments on this thread relating to Wiggle Wiggle question concerning blogs.

    Our poor member wont want to post again if its just going to turn into an argument.

    there is proof we have continued with the thread focus by responding appropriately on a few occasions and ignored insults and name calling.
    Personal attacks should not be allowed in this forum...fair is fair to any member....let's not lecture those who are willing to keep this forum for what it is 'sharing information' and on a professional level.

    Your 'poor' members are free to post and add to what is a very interesting thread
