I Can't Wait ...

No, I can't wait...

... to share with you my 3 favorite pins from Pinterest!  I am so excited to link up with these amazing bloggers and I can't wait to see the pins they have suggested too!  A great big THANK YOU to Pawsitively Teaching and Inspired Owl's Corner for hosting this party!

This party is open all month long, so add your post about your favorite pins in the link-up below.

Here Are My 3 Best Pins:

January is the perfect time to get organized with these Dry-Erase Work Mats For Small Group Lessons:
I LOVE this idea.  You apply lined dry-erase contact paper to laminated construction paper.  Students use dry-erase pens to practice writing letters, numbers, words, and sentences.  The teacher can also write a word for the students to copy.  You can order the lined dry erase paper on Amazon.

January is the perfect time to build a snowman using math:  Students get the main white parts to build this snowman, but they must "buy" all of the smaller parts and accessories with the coins the teacher provides.  The Snowman template is free HERE.  Math and Art merge in this project:

My January "organize everything" rack:  I use several dish racks in my classroom to organize files, but I especially use this idea during parent conferences.  The rack holds several student files and the silverware holder is perfect for pencils, pens, and my iPhone (on "silent" of course!).

This is my favorite Pin EVER!
