Fabulous Pinterest Pics for September!

I’m joining up with Marissa from the Inspired Owl's Corner, Lisa from PAWSitively Teaching, and  Ashley from Just Reed! for the Pinterest Pick 3 Linky.  Come join the fun in finding some wonderful ideas to help us through September. 

The first is a favorite of mine.  I love these coloring books by Krista Wallden.  She’s created others and they are just as awesome. What makes them even better is that they are all free!  With the crazy weather being too hot, too cold, or just rainy, these are great for indoor recess or for free time. My kids always ask when the next month’s sheets will be out.

 Here are some of her coloring sheets from February:

#2 has two parts- organization in the classroom and something to help you keep all the class files organized.  I've always struggle with keeping stuff organized on Google Docs, so when I discovered this post about color coding and numbering your folders,it was a game changer!  Since I'm such a visual person, everything is easier to find and it's very simple!  

I love this next pin because for just a brief moment, on the first day of school- everything is pristine!  The crayons have perfect tips, the pencils are all the same size with no chew marks, and all seems right in the world and then the little ones enter.  So, I love any trick that could help keep me organized all through the year.

The third pin is another favorite- the What If Anchor chart.  We’ve all had the kid... What if my crayon breaks? What if I’m thirsty? What if I finish early?  I love the approach to these burning questions that kids have so that they don’t interrupt important instructional time and are able to learn to problem solve on their own.

If this was the top 4 Pinterest picks, I'd have to add this lovely poster to hang in your classroom.  There are 2 choices to choose from.  I love how it sets such a positive atmosphere to the class.  


  1. Those coloring sheets are adorable! I love that What If poster too-great for getting them to problem solve on their own! Thank you for sharing your pins and linking up with us! :)

  2. My kids always love Krista's coloring sheets, too! I like the "what if" anchor chart as well!

  3. I was able to get the copy center in our district to blow up the Classroom Rules into a poster and I put it on my door. It looks so cute! Thanks for sharing!
