I'm linking up with the lovely and sweet Cara (do I really even NEED to say she's from The First Grade Parade??? Guessing you already knew....cuz she's THAT fabulous!) with her Favorite Pins Friday linky.
Here are some of my favorite pins (go ahead and follow me on pinterest along the right side if you'd like)...
From my School Stuff board:
Water bottle cages attached to chair legs to hold water bottles! Love this! We're tripping over water bottles left and right in my classroom. BUT, they're a necessity since we don't have air conditioning at our school. Our first floor rooms on the blacktop side of the building are generally 85-90 degrees....and we're downstairs. Bless those upstairs teachers' souls.
No website is listed for this particular pin...if you know where it came from, please let me know...I'd love to give credit!
I love my friend Susan Moran over at Thank God Its First Grade (hope her cross-country move is going well!)....she posted this sweet freebie that I plan to try out...
I'm obsessed with all things chalkboard. In fact, I'm in the middle of a bloggy make-over and can't WAIT for the big reveal of Growing Firsties - chalkboard style!!! Only a few weeks out! :)
That said, when my friend Lyndsey Kuster from A Year of Many Firsts put these out I just about wept with how adorable they are!
Sometimes when I'm working on Character Traits with students or for a TpT product, I get stuck thinking of the same old traits. This next freebie is great to have on hand! It's from the blogger behind Workshop Classroom. You can get to it on TpT by clicking the picture.
All year long my class used (and loved) these Partner Picking Cards from Making It As A Middle School Teacher. You can get to them on TpT by clicking the picture.
From my Crafty Stuff board...
Turning toddler scribbles into art....I have loads of these types of papers and love this idea from Squash Blossom Babies.
I intended to do this last year and never did....it's from La Classe Della Maestra Valentina...I can't understand a word of the blog (I think it's in Italian?) but I sooo love the idea and am thinking I'll have my daughter make one.
Cara...it was a BLAST to shop my own pins! Hoping to link up a few more times for this fun linky! Thanks for hosting!
If you'd like to see what else I'm pinning...click here to follow me on Pinterest. Or the P under the flower button along the top right works, too.
In case you've had your eye on some of my TpT products, I'm having a Star Spangled Sale along with a bunch of other lovely bloggers....you can get to my store by clicking the pic below....
And, thanks Tammy & Christy at Fluttering Through First Grade for the fun graphic!
