Este fin de semana nos encontramos con una grata sorpresa. Nos han premiado con el Black Wolf Blogger Award.

Normas para aceptar el premio:
  1. Agradecer públicamente a quien nos nominó:

Lorena Sánchez desde Asturias nos concede el premio BLACK WOLF BLOGGER AWARD  por nuestro blog de aula.
    ¡ Muchísimas gracias !
    2.Debo contestar a las siguientes preguntas:
  • ¿Cuál fue el primer libro que leíste? El primer libro del que tengo un recuerdo claro es "Un tiesto lleno de lápices"
  • ¿Porqué escribes? Por varias razones: unas más egoístas como las de mostrar nuestro trabajo, exteriorizar mis opiniones sobre la educación e incluso aprender continuamente de los demás  y otras más altruistas como: la necesidad de compartir y abrir las puertas de nuestro aula.
  • ¿Tienes una musa o inspiración? Tengo 80, cada una de ellas con nombres y apellidos de niños de quinto y sexto de primaria.
  • ¿Escribes lo que vives o vives lo que escribes? En nuestro caso no hay diferencia. Nunca hago copia y pega. Nuestro blog es real, con los pies en el aula. Los recursos y actividades que aparecen son las que realmente llevamos a cabo día a día.
  • ¿Cuál ha sido tu gran amor? Mi gran pasión , es mi trabajo y los locos bajitos ( algunos ya más altos que yo) que me miran cada día.
3. Ahora debo nominar otros blogs:
