Happy Friday, which in the summer almost seems like every other day, only everyone else around me seems happier that it is the weekend!
I am linking up today with Cara Carroll at The First Grade Parade for....
It took awhile for me to select pins for this post, because it seems I pin a lot! I mean I had a lot of pins to look through. I think I could do this linky everyday for the rest of the summer and not run out of pins.
So I picked just a few of things that I am really, really, going to try (not just dream about).
This one is from Scholastic and there is a whole article discussing critical thinking activities for early finishers. I really like the way this one is set up and I have room on my math board to make this, so on the to-do list it goes.
This one comes from Kindergarten Kindergarten. I love the pictures on each box of the students reading. I have this on my to-do list too. I just need to make another trip out to IKEA to buy more magazine holders (and anything else I happen to
This pin is from Tales from a Second Year Teacher (well first year when it was pinned :)) I love this simple way of introducing color to my reading area - with bath mats. I have used a colorful shower curtain before and taped it down but this is even better. A few mats, a few pillows and voila, classroom color scheme achieved!!
Okay I had to do one more. This one is from Two Tangled Teachers. I love anything that includes a real photograph of the kids like this, the bookmarks, the winter scenes, I love them all. I think this is a great back to school idea, on the balloons they are writing their hopes and dreams!!
Speaking of dreams, there is this one from houzz and about a million other ones!!
I am sure I will find so many more things to pin as I read through all the other posts! Happy pinning!
