What I'm Pinning Wednesday

Today I am linking up with Laura from Kinder Kraziness for What I'm Pinning Wednesday!  Who doesn't love a little Pinterest linky?!  Here's what I am pinning lately!

This is the new and improved playroom from Jen over at IHeart Organizing.  I absolutely love every single thing she posts!  And if I had her skills, I would do this in my home someday too!  But what I really fell in love with is the shelving unit from Ikea.  I think these would be perfect for classroom library shelves.  They come in bigger units as well.  They are a little pricey, but I hope they would be a forever investment for the classroom.

This pin comes from Patty at Second in Line.  And no, your eyes are not fooling you.  That is a child standing on the teacher's desk!  As a reward for passing Otter Creek, a math facts program, students get the coolest rewards.  If they pass the addition tests, they get to stand on their desk and have their picture taken.  If they pass the subtraction tests, they get to stand on the teacher's desk and have their picture taken.  If they pass the multiplication tests, Patty has a window ledge students get to stand on as their classmates cheer for them.  And if they pass the division tests, they get to stand on the same ledge and cover their friends in silly string.  Each time they reach one of these goals, their picture goes on a wall of fame too!  How easy and FREE is that!

This colorful pin comes from Kylie at Down Under Teacher.  She did not have room for a word wall so she utilized her windows.  I doubt I will ever have a classroom with such a large wall of windows, but I was still greatly inspired by this photo.  Next year, I want to have a carnival/circus theme classroom.  I think, using a bulletin board, and covering it with a background color, then adding the individual colored paper for each letter would be adorable.  It may also help students distinguish where the words belong.  Plus I think it would add a lot to the theme.  Cuh-ute!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes
So this last pin has absolutely nothing to do with being a teacher, but I would love to find these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes, from Kevin & Amanda, on the teachers lounge table.

    1. The problem with making them is I would probably eat them all! They look beyond delcious.


  2. Those are great ideas for passing math tests! I know our students would love that!
