School Ideas

Days are quickly passing and my summer break will soon be over.  By this point in my summer I start thinking about what new things to include in my classroom.  I have been seeing a ton of stuff on Pinterest that I plan on using in my room. I thought I would show you a few of my favorite ideas so far.

I love these!  I really want to make one of these using just two crates for my reading area.
I could so see making this to put in my 4-yr. old's room.  I am sure she would have those bins filled with stuff quickly!

I want to make something like this to keep track of how my kinders are going home.  It is 
really crazy at the beginning trying to keep track of how 20 five year olds are going home!

RIT dyed clothes pins!!!!  What a great idea!!!  I could use these for all sorts of things in my classroom!
(The pic. link has a really cute Christmas Tree card hanger project also!)


I love this chart to track behavior within the classroom.  This hold everyone accountable and gives everyone a chance to grow! 


Okay,  I am sure I could continue to share more favorite ideas, but you would be here a long time!  So I am going to start with these!  I really think I will be incorporating a few of these ideas into my classroom this year!


  1. I used the "going home" clip chart last year. I almost think it was a waste of my time to make it. It may not be for kindergarten though.

    I also used the behavior "clip chart." I LOVED it. It was the most effective behavior system that I used. The kids were SO motivated by the chart. I gave 1 ticket if they were on purple (2nd from top) and 2 tickets at the end of the day for those on the top. At the end of the week, I drew 5-10 tickets and those students got to pick a prize from the treasure box. It worked like a charm most of the time.

    God Bless
