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.
May is here! I find that May is probably one of the most exhausting months to teach in. The children sense the end of school is near and I am physically and mentally drained. “You’ve got this. Finish Strong” is going to be my mantra to get me through the rest of the month.
We make these adorable fingerprint flowers into bookmarks to give to our moms each year. I also laminate for durability and add a ribbon tassel to the top.
We are working on habitats in 2nd grade. Each students will be drawing and watercolor painting their choice of biomes. Then they are going to choose an animal from their habitat of choice and mold it into the animal shape with air dry molding clay.
This week we are finishing up our chapter on telling time. I have plans to do this with my kiddos; except I am using pretzel rods instead of Twizzlers.
Thanks for dropping by. I hope you find some fun ideas to finish out your school year. Finish strong!
I love the monthly Pinterest Pick 3 Linky hosted by Inspired Owl, PAWSitively Teaching , and Just Reed. I get TONS of ideas to use in my classroom and at home with my own three children. Currently, I am scouring Pinterest for lessons on poetry, Earth Day, and plants and seeds for school and recipes, gardening, and spring/summer fashion for home. Here are my top 3 picks for April.
Just look at this color poem! To think I actually have some paint chips in my art closet that a friend gave me last year too. I made a graphic organizer to help my students brainstorm ideas before they publish their final project. You can grab the graphic organizer below for FREE.
I simply cannot wait to hatch chicks in my classroom this month. I saw this craft and instantly knew we will have to incorporate it into our unit. I am in love with the little fuzzy chicks too. I saw those little chicks at Easter time, however, now I cannot remember what store they were at!
How adorable is this craft for Earth Day? Newspaper+watercolors+creativity=adorable craft!
Thanks for dropping by. I hope you find something useful. Be sure to check out all the other blogs to get some Pinspiration for the month of April.
Wow, I could have sworn that March just started! Here we are in the middle of March and I am preparing for my last week of school before spring break. Where has the time gone? I thought I would join up with Inspired Owl’s Corner, PAWSitively Teaching, and Just Reed for their monthly Pinterest Pick 3 Linky.
Here are my three March Pinterest picks. I hope you find some new ideas and find some ‘pin’spiration to finish out this month!
We are making these adorable baskets for our candy-free egg hunt in Room #7.
I love how cute and simple this is!
Who doesn’t want to grow their own Mr. Potato head? A fun activity to go with our unit on plants.
