It’s time for July Pinterest Pick 3 Linky with PAWSitively Teaching, The Inspired Owl, and Just Reed. I simply cannot believe it is July already. Where in the world did the month of June go? At the end of the month I like to look back and see what all I accomplished. I then set new goals for the upcoming month. I can always count on Pinterest to give me some motivational ideas.
My July Pinterest Picks
One of my goals is to pull out my Silhouette machine and make some of these adorable teacher tees. There are so many cute ones to get inspiration from! I love to wear a comfy tee, cardigan, and jeans on casual Friday… and these tees fit that description.
I am having so much fun trying out new apps this summer. If you have time check out Nutshell. It lets you snap 3 photos then add captions and graphics to your images. Then you create a mini-movie of your 3 images. Best of all…it is FREE!
I’ve been working on my classroom little by little each weekday. My two oldest children have basketball open gym each day (one in the am and one in the pm) and it is not worth my time and fuel to drive home. Therefore, I stay at school and be productive.
First, I purged my room of unused and unwanted items.
Second, I arranged my classroom for flexible seating. I had some seating options last year but have added to it for the upcoming year. I love looking at other’s adventures in flexible seating on Pinterest. I can get so many wonderful ideas.
I hope you get some motivation and inspiration from my pins and boards. Be sure and check out all the other bloggers taking part in this linky to get ideas from them too.
My long awaited summer break has finally started! I always begin my summer break by giving a little T.L.C. to my back patio. This is where my family and I spend most of our time in the summer. If you drop by you may catch one of us out there…reading a book, grilling, swimming, paddle-boarding or just enjoying the peaceful sounds nature and country living.
My first task I decided to tackled was adding some colorful flowers to my back patio. I saw this idea and loved how they had the Tiki torches in the giant planters.
So I set off to Lowe”s and purchased a few items, enlisted the help of my three kids, and put together my own version. I am liking it so far. Fingers crossed the citronella plant I planted in one of the planters wards off misquotes like it advertised.
Now I have this idea on the Hub’s honey-do list. My current patio swing has no cushions (hazard of owning a new puppy) and no canopy through years of weathering. Now I am on the hunt for some chic patio pillows to throw on it.
My children and I are going to try something new this summer. We are going geocaching! Ever heard of geocaching? If you are like me then it is probably new to you too. Here’s a short video about it.
How fun does that sound? We are excited to go out to explore, discover, and find! Check out my Pinterest board below for some more fun summer break activities to enjoy with your kids.
