So I have been in love with Pinterest and it is how I got into blogs actually. (It's a almost like shopping except no money is being spent, well until you actually start working on the projects!) I always wanted to know who came up with the cool project or idea, so I started reading the blogs and loved every minute of it. It helped me to renew my interest in teaching and expanding my knowledge. So when I came upon Kinder Kraziness's linky though Apples and ABCs, I had to add my pins!
When I am on pinterest lately, I have been especially looking for writing ideas and center ideas for my upcoming school year. So here are some great ideas I have found:
This chart would be great a little later in the year to help remind my kiddos with adding details to pictures and (hopefully) their writing. I have been reading more and more about using illustrations as a way to motivate or expand writing and I think this would help.
I definitely would like to start doing writing conferences with my students and this blog has tons of great ideas relating to the Lucy Calkins' writing workshop format, which I am thinking about using and if you have any advice on this please COMMENT! I need the advice.
This is a super cute idea for the first day of school and would make for a great display to put up the very first day of school.
These are some cute ideas for word wall reading and practicing sight words and word families each day pick a card and then show the kids different funny ways to say the words, have them pay attention to sounds and how they change.
Well I will stop now before I start putting all of my pins on here. If you want to see more Follow me on Pinterest.
