Top Pinterest Picks for June

Main Pick 3 Graphic June

Thanks for stopping by! If you are like me, summer is a time when I get to reflect, relax, and renew. What better place to find great ideas than Pinterest! I’ve been surfing around looking for some inspiration and came across these 3 ideas that I wanted to share with you.

Slide1

Name Banners

name bannerImagine the fun our students will have creating their own banner while waiting for the rest of the class to arrive! Later on it will become a great banner to start off the new year. This resource is from The Counseling Teacher Brandy. Click on the banner to learn more.

Slide2

Differentiated Writing Goals Chart

Writing GoalsOne of my reflections was in the area of writing. I know I need to help the kids and myself more mindful of how they can improve their writing. Within any class, the children are at various stages of proficiency. I love this idea from Runde’s Room. It is on my TpT wishlist for the Back to School Sale 😉 For her original blog post, just click on the photo.

Math Beads from Straws

Such an inexpensive way to make colorful math manipulatives! You know I’ll be adding colored straws to my shopping list!

Well, I hope you are enjoying your break and time with those you love! If you would enjoy more pins like this, please follow me on Pinterest. I have several boards to choose from.

When I started teaching, I quickly realized that student teaching didn't prepare me for the real challenges of being alone in a classroom full of young children. The learning curve was steep and time was limited. That is why I created the Literacy Garden. My hope is this will be a place for inspiration, mentoring, and connecting.

    Your banner caught my eye, because my daughter’s name is Emma and my name is Marissa! Love that idea. The writing goals chart would be so helpful in my classroom. Thank you for sharing your pins and linking up with us! 🙂
