Favorite Pins Friday and Giveaway Winners

I am O.B.S.E.S.S.E.D. with Pinterest.  It has gotten even worse since I’ve been in a cast all summer.  I’m ready to get some Pinterest projects going for my new classroom at my new school!  WAHOO!  So just to justify all of this pinning I’ve been doing lately, I’m linking up with Cara at First Grade Parade to share some of my favorite pins!
Teaching Pins
I love this!  I really want to do some sort of focus wall/main stage in my classroom this year!  It would be a great way to display the learning objectives for the week.
Food Pins
YUM-O! And it uses ground turkey which I love!
 Quotable Pins
This is the perfect quote for me.  So often I worry about things but this quote reminds me that I need to have patience because God may not be done with exactly what I’m going through. 
I love to be silly… especially in my classroom.  It helps me connect to my kids.  Hey, if I have to teach nouns and verbs by making up a silly song and marching around my classroom in a witch hat, then so be it! 
This is absolutely going in my boyfriend’s stocking for Christmas this year!  How cool is this?!
And my giveaway ended last night!  A special congratulations to Pauline and Lauren.  Pauline received my Detective Theme Classroom Schedule Cards and Lauren received my Common Core Writing Curriculum!  Didn’t win but still have your eye on something in my store?  Well, I’m having a sale so go ahead and grab what you need!
Smiles and Snapshots! :)


  1. A cast? I'll have to read through your latest posts to see what happened. Hopefully you don't have that much longer with it, and in the meantime can spend some much needed time relaxing!

    Love to Learn

    P.S. That Chili Macaroni looks sooo good!

  2. I nominated your blog for the Liebster Award. Check out my blog for the details. :)
