Top 10 Most Popular Posts in 2012

Seems like you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a top ten list on this last day of 2012, so here are HoneyFern's 10 most popular posts of the year. They run the gamut of topics, but all are firmly rooted in the mission of the school: that all children are unique and deserving of an exceptional education. Enjoy!

1. Gifted 101: a post clearing up some misconceptions regarding gifted kids. Droppin' some basic  knowledge on who they are and what they need.

2. Gifted Readers: how to engage them (harder than you think!!)

3. Election Day: staying apolitical as a non-profit was tough; this blog reflects on the value of the election process.

4. Worky Work, Busy Bee!!: one slice of life at HoneyFern

5. Accidental Montessori: Huh. Turns out we share some pretty huge characteristics. Fancy that.

6. Money and School: The blog where the school in question was called to the carpet for their crazy tuition rate; they went ahead and responded about how fabulous their program is (totally true), missing the entire point of the blog (and were curiously silent when I pointed out that even as they defended their crazy tuition price they raised it for the following year)..

7. What Should Children Read?: Everything. Every day.

8. If You Only Ever Watch One Video: I stand by this blog. So powerful and amazing, what the person in the video did.

9. Should Your Gifted Kid Take All AP Classes?: No. In a nutshell. And lots of people who know what they are talking about agree with me.

10. Something Shocking: In which one of my fabulous students does something that is amazing and incredible and makes me so proud I almost cry.

So there it is. I hope your new year is prosperous and filled with joy. I leave you with a video that I hope inspires you to live the examined life.
