I am linking up with the one and only Cara Carroll of The First Grade Parade
for her Favorite Pins Linky Party.
Before I ever got the guts to be a blogger I pinned....I pinned a lot!
My pinning has slowed down a bit lately but pinterest sure is my go to spot whenever
I need to get the creative juices flowing!
Here are some of my recent pins that I am loving.
This is absolutely amazing! I want my husband to build one yesterday.
I am in love with this braid. I wish I had 6 more arms to make this happen.
I can do a french braid in my hair, but it is not nearly this good!
If I was ever really really rich (like Jennifer Aniston- I'm watching Friends right now) I would have someone do my hair everyday. I am not so much a hair do-er.
We have a small room in our house that was a baby nursery, but since I don't have any little babies anymore it is going to become my office. My two little gals share a room now.
Did you hear that? It's the choir of angels singing that I have my own space to make my own mess in.
Here are some things that are inspiring me to get my rear in gear.
I am loving the use of these clipboards. I'd go with something a little more lady-like, but I love this concept. plus it's easy to change it it's not working for you.
How cool is the idea of slipcovering a boring old office chair? In the tutorial the woman does it in my style too- no pattern and a lot of staples!
This is such a fun sign. Might help me keep my head focused and in the game!
I have been thinking about this repurposed crib forever. We still have a crib up that needs to come down. I think I would love to do this. I can't decide if I should keep a kids art desk in my office space or not. My thinking is no matter what they are going to follow me in there so it may be nice to have a space for them to keep busy.
This has been an awesome inspiration for me.
I'd like to do a little something like this in the office and also in my girls' room.
Lastly, I'd like to sum up my summer as this so far...or maybe all year.
I am still almost a month and a half out from heading back to school. That's not to stay I haven't bought some things at Target and Walmart. But, I haven't done much physically to get stuff going. Just a lot of mental preparation!
I just keep telling myself I need to get the office together to get work done- that's double layered procrastination.
But I have looked at these two cute apples units I am going to dive into in the fall!
I have them in my overflowing cart on TPT!
These are from Around the Kampfire
This goodness is from Just Wild About Teaching
Also I imagine many of you are getting ready for the fall too!
I have put together a little something that is great for practicing those short vowel sounds that we need to smoosh into our kids heads.
I am a huge fan of phonics and really teaching kids how words work and come together.
In my school we are moving away from Reading St. so I created some phonics printables to serve as independent practice for my kiddos.
You can also use them for morning work, homework, intervention or small group work.
There is a lot of detailed coloring involved as well which is great for working those fine motor skills!
I'm even thinking of letting my class use skinny markers or colored pencils...oooo...exciting!
There are five printables for each vowel and also a bonus set of mixed practice work.
Here's a preview.
