April's Show & Tell Tuesday

Time for . . .
Hi! I'm super excited to have the opportunity to share some items I'm pretty thrilled about.
I'm a pretty simple gal, it doesn't take much.
First, I love my Crystal Light plastic holders.  I use them to hold my pens upright.  Unfortunately, CL is not cheap, so I can't buy one for each kid in my class, so I use them at home.  I keep them on my desk for easy access.  I color everything!
. . . Also loving my new clear stamps!  I nearly jumped out of my skin when I saw these at the craft store.  It's genius!  I'm obsessed!
And, finally, love, love, love my new "Sparkle" necklace from Vintage Farmhouse.  It's just as lovely in person as I saw it online, maybe more.  Love the vintage look.  I love vintage everything!

That's it for this month's Show & Tell.

April's Pinterest Picks for the Classroom

Hi There!
I'm so glad you stopped by.
Today we're joining April's Pinterest Picks with
The Inspired Owl's Corner, Just Reed and Pawsitively Teaching.

So let's just jump in.

Love this idea from Dabbles and Babbles
Word Rocks
I think this would be a great creative outlet for kids to work on after the big tests, 
on Fun Fridays or Motivate Me Mondays.

This is a super cute idea by Jonathan Fog on Ehow: Family Tree.
Students can create one and then present to the class, describing each family member - looks, Personality, Likes, Dislikes, Famous quotations, etc.) Another creative way to use this tree would be organize collaborative groups.

The Pinspired Teacher's Testing Sign
It's free through her Teachers Pay Teachers Store.
So cute.
