Favorite Pins Friday and a Freebie

I'm linking up with Cara Carroll for Favorite Pins Friday!
I feel like during the summer I live on Pinterest! This is my first time linking up so it may not be that great but next time I'll add more!  Let's start with my favorite school pins
I love this from Teaching with a Mountain View-We do a lesson on this, and last year this ate my kids lunch.  I'm planning on trying this some with my group that are my higher level kids.  Maybe by the time the lesson rolls around they can help "teach" the others!
They are doing our parent orientation before the school year starts which stinks because I would so love to do these...these would have been a cute way to welcome parents into my classroom!
Now I'm going to pull from my Random Giggles Board and there is honestly no telling what you will find on that one ;)
This makes me giggle because it's so true and we think we are getting away from the Wal-Mart stuff but if your target is like my target it is turning into people of Target it's a little disheartening!

If you're a 90s kid and had at least one Tiger Beat Magazine you know what I'm talking about ha ha!
And I think to end my pinterest post I will throw this one in there

Just something that I think the state of Texas needs to keep in mind when it comes to making these testing laws that are completely ridiculous.  If you had been in our school these days you would have seen kids in tears, and having panic attacks because that couldn't finish a test within a time limit when they are trying to do their best.  IT'S HEARTBREAKING!
Now for your Freebie I plan on putting this in a frame adding a dry erase marker and picking a kid and filling it in.  I'm then going to have the kids that get picked draw a name and write something positive about their classmates.  I'm going to try to make my class more of a family this year.  I didn't have that last year and I've had it in the past so I don't know what was different.  I'm going to try to make every effort possible to unite us! 
Have a happy weekend!




  1. Oh, I like the "this doesn't define you." At my school, we don't have a big state rest I. 2nd grade, but the Aims tests are stressful enough.
    I agree - those little paper people are so cute. Could you do that before parent teacher conferences?
    Thanks for sharing your pins.

    1. Oh goodness auto correct - big state test in 2nd grade!

  2. LOVE your pins!! I just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for the Liebster Award! Check Out my blog post to see how to accept :)
