Favorite Pins Friday

Ok...I admit it, I'm a Pinterest addict.  There I said it...the first step is admitting it, right?! Some nights I get on my Pinterest for an hour (or two)... man that's embarrassing to admit...I really should be reading or planning or making TPT items, or working out....or sleeping...ok you get it!  So, I'm going to link up with Cara at The First Grade Parade.  Here are my favorite Pins for the week:
1. I've heard great things about Teach Like a Pirate & finally ordered it... It should be in just in time for me to go on vacation to Indiana for airplane & car reading..o ya, that reminds me, I can't forget my sea-bands! 

2. First day of a school sign from First Grade Schoolbox...I'm def. going to be making one of these asap, I think I will use $1 foam board & turquoise chevron border

3. Interactive word wall from Tales-of-a-First-Grade-Teacher. For my first couple years of teaching I had a huge word wall & it was behind the students...I moved mine to the front of the room, bought some ribbon & Velcro circles & will look similar to this.

4. Rise & Shine Binder from Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits. I absolutely love this idea!  No more rushing to find bell work bright and early every morning, the kiddos just open up their binder (or in my case folder) & use an expo marker to do 2 or so re-usable pages!  It's also awesome practice with HFW. Talk about saving trees.  The kit also has other papers bell work, including place value, number lines, a hundreds chart, and games.  Awesome!   

5. LOVE.LOVE.LOVE this e-card!  I'm excited to meet my new kiddos and get my room ready but I'm NOT excited to wake up at 5:30 every morning... I've gotten pretty accustomed to sleeping in *cough* 11:30 *cough*.  This e-card pretty much sums it up!'s something really random that I just love...enjoy & have a Happy Friday!  Tally


  1. Just saw that you posted about Sea-Bands...have you ever tried ginger gum? It's sold as a medicine, near the Sea-Bands and Dramamine - it really helps me with my motion sickness! Good luck!

    1. No, I haven't tried ginger gum... I'll have to though, I think my sea-bands are worn out..I've had them a while & I was starting to get motion sickness on the plane & in the car...not fun! I'll definitely try it, thanks!

  2. I love it Tally! Your site looks great! I think I might go to something like that for my wordwall this year too! Something easier to manage! I love it!

    1. Thanks Heidi, that means a lot to me. I can't wait to see your word wall! Hope you and the family are having a fantastic summer!
