These are a few of my fav-or-ite things...

wow. blogging is addicting. or do you call it blogging when you are just looking at other peoples projects? 111 views! too bad 100 of those are mine and 11 are from my friends at the 2nd grade teachers' club. anyways...

i am loving these right now.

i could totally turn this into a class project with all of the chewed up crayons that end up on my floor.

i found another person to stalk now. (lucky you, chris)

how cute are these!?! they are made using those giant paper clips all of us teachers looooove. i could use these to keep the little one's papers clipped up on the writing wall (below) with the kiddlet's pictures on them (instead of the p)! or even on my white board to clip up lunch calendars or make up work. or what about making a bunch and giving them to the staff as welcome back gifts. and i could keep going but i still am not sure if anyone is even looking at this ;)

Okay and my last favorite thing... to share for today at least is this.

blogging 101: always keep track of where you are stealing ideas from so you can give them some credit. sorry. if you see this and you are the creator... let me know. believe me, i know all too well about wanting credit for things i make. i'm a teacher. remember? back to the picture. i am thinking this would be a cute project to make and display for back to school or open house. maybe some life cycle project or an all about me project?

okay ... that's it for now. 

maybe when i wake up in the morning i'll have 2 followers.

Table Tents

Okay ... so I haven't figured out the direction I am going in with this whole blog thing. I am thinking it will just be a place for me to post all of the cute things I find or create for the classroom? Anyways... on to today's internet find: Table Tents! These have to be the cutest things I have ever seen. Right now, I am trying to think of a way to bring this idea into my classroom. It is screaming READING AREA! to me. Here is a sample of one... ikat bag made a cute princess themed one. She also posted some links to other table tents. What do you think? Are you in love with these as much as I am?

Here goes nothing...

After someone on The Second Grade Teachers' Club (ning) posted a link to Chris' blog I began to stalk... and by stalk I meant I looked at every post she ever posted. Please don't be scared. I also began to think. I have a website that no parents look at. It's pretty much just for teachers and my nosey family members. Maybe I should start blogging instead. I am going to give it a try. It's gotta be better than Twitter. Oh and my sister turned 21 today.

Yes. That is a Tinkerbell birthday cake. and yes I did say she was turning 21. I made her a card with the Cricut. I'll upload that later.
