Favorite Pins Friday!

We are linking up with Cara at The First Grade Parade for Favorite Pins Friday...

Classroom Inspiration (Courtney)

A few years ago I decided to go with a bee theme in my classroom. I have a black/yellow/white color scheme going on in my room and thought I did a good job...that is until I saw this pin. It has given me some new ideas and some inspiration for my home away from home!

Task Cards (Courtney)

I love task cards and how students can work on them independently, however, was not happy with how I stored them (Ziploc baggies). I found this great idea from teaching with task cards.

Yum--O (Courtney)

In my house we LOVE puppy chow! It is so easy to make and we typically take it to many family get togethers. When I saw these twists on how to make puppy chow, I had to pin it. Your cup of cake has SO MANY different ways to make puppy chow that sound ah-mazing:)

Rocket's Math Word Tree (Sarah)

Since I just started pinning, I came across this one just last week on Throwback Thursday over at School is a Happy Place, a wonderful blog! Just picked up a hardback copy of Rocket Writes a Story at B&N (in store) for $10 (special value). Not only does this bulletin board look precious--love how the tree is a place for math focus words.  I plan to incorporate a math word tree this year... Stop over to Amber's blog!

Boggle Word Work (Sarah)

Here's another pin of something I will be adding to word work this year--Boggle! Found this one at Create*Teach*Share. Rebecca gives you the letters and an activity sheet to get started with this goodie!

Chalkboard Inspired Wrapping (Sarah)

Last, a fun one--how to wrap with a chalkboard look from Nashville Wraps.  Someone shared a pic of chalkboard wrap last week, and I love to order from Nashville Wraps for my small business.  Never new they had a website where they share ideas... Check it out!

Don't forget to stop over to The First Grade Parade to take part in the Favorite Pin Frenzy!

Have a wonderful weekend! See you on Monday for Monday Made It!

  5. I've never seen the chalkboard gift bags. Thank you for sharing that. I have the task card organization pinned. It's on my to do list, which is currently about a mile long.


    1. I know exactly what you mean! The list is growing when it should be getting a little shorter... :0) That's what happens when all those ideas get flowing!
