I Saw it On Pinterest...

I'm linking up with Amber from Adventures of a Third Grade Teacher to share some Pinterest-inspired ideas!

So here are a few of my favorite ideas found on Pinterest lately!

I want to make all my drawers in my classroom look this good!!

I love the use of spray paint and scrapbook paper with my favorite (labels) to make these drawers simply awesome!

I want to use framed scrapbook paper to write my learning targets on each day.  Use a dry-erase marker and erase each day and start new.  So cheap and cute!

Clothespins with pushpins attached so that you don't have to staple papers to bulletin boards anymore, just pin it up and go.  Even kiddos can do this easily and quickly and no holes in their papers!!

I love this classroom management technique.  Reward for good behavior: earn a piece of Mr. Potato Head for each complement you receive in the hallway.  When Mr. Potato Head is all put together time for some sort of reward!!

Hel-lo!  What a great idea for whiteboard erasers!!!!  Cheap, fun, and easy!

I need a drawer per week or per unit.  This could get costly, but I'd love to do this rather than a filing cabinet which I never open...

I just want my legs to look like hers this summer.  Yeah right.... but it's on my Fitness Pin Board for wishful thinking!!!

I love this quote above because haven't we all experienced that feeling!  Well this next year in math, I want to use that awkward moment as a teachable moment.  I want to explore wrong answers, what makes them wrong, and how we can make them right as a class.  How's that for deep thinking?  I love it!  Here's a little video found on YouTube that we saw in a class for my Math Specialist Endorsement and although the grade level is far from mine, I really like her way of finding her "Favorite No" or wrong answer and using it as a teachable moment.  Check it out!  It's a little over 5 minutes long, but I think it's worth it.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think about my Pinterest-inspired ideas and this cool method on YouTube above.  Chat with ya soon!
