The year is almost over and what a year it has been. We have moved across the country, I have been published for the first (and second) time and Childhood 101 won an Asia-Pacific wide blog award.
Here is a month by month overview of the most popular posts (yours or mine!) since Childhood 101 started in the last week of May.
My first post which identifies so much of what I believe early childhood education SHOULD be about.
A post which continues to be popular with Google searchers.
One of my posts from the Emergent Curriculum series; how we share responsibility as parents AND teachers to create the best possible learning community for our children.
This series contained lots of ideas for teaching children about money and no- or low-cost ideas for family fun.
The highlight of October would have to be our trip to Singapore for the Nuffnang Asia Pacific Blog Awards. It still amazes me that we brought home the ‘Best Parenting Blog’ statuette! We had a great time getting to know other bloggers and I certainly learnt a thing or two about travelling overseas with a toddler!
November seemed to be all about play with Explore. Dream. Discover., Why Do We Keep Exploring this Message? and Playful Learning exploring why play is essential to learning. I also included some information for parents about children starting school.
The hit for December had to be the prior-to-Christmas inspiration for Mums of the Everyday Glamour series of posts written by a great group of gals (all Mums), exploring tips and tricks for finding a little bit of glam everyday. Oh, and the DIY Kids Ice Cream Shop and felt ice cream tutorial were popular too!
What an adventure starting this blog has been. I would love to hear what your favourite post has been!
