Pinterest is making me crafty.....

I'm sure by now you've all heard of Pinterest. (if not- You must be living under a rock!) I too have been bitten by the Pinterest bug and thought I'd share some of my summer projects for my classroom.

Isn't this birthday balloon wreath adorable? I plan to (attempt to) make one of these to hang on my door for student birthdays. This idea comes from 

Another great Pinterest find I plan on attempting to make this summer are these adorable pom-pom flowers made from tissue paper! I am planning on hanging them from the ceiling in my room to match my theme (be on the lookout for more about that later!)
This site has a great tutorial- 

And of course I have to make these adorable storage containers! I'm pretty sure these have been pinned a million times!

Here is the link for the Teacher Toolbox! 

Here is the link for the crate seats- great tutorial! 

This teacher blog has a great video with information on how to best make your template and whether Mod Podge is better than tape!

Well, I hope to be able to get into my classroom in the next couple of weeks. Since my center underwent a ton of remodeling, I am anticipating a ton of work to be needed to get my room ready for the first day of school! In the meantime, I will be working on these ideas in addition to a million others! If you have worked on creating any of these things for your classroom, please leave me a comment and share any tips or tricks!

Diving in....

Welcome to my blog! After spending hours upon hours reading other teacher's blogs, I finally "bit the bullet" and decided to start my own blog. I hope this blog can be a resource to other teachers, as well as a way for me to keep a "digital memory" of my experiences and adventures in teaching!

Won't you please join me on my journey?
