Curling up with an iced coffee and my laptop to peruse Pinterest on a rainy Sunday morning is the perfect way to reignite the creativity of even the least creative :). This summer I've had the opportunity to delve into a few pinteresting projects!
In fact, this morning I tried the "baked" hard boiled eggs available on my YUM board, I baked the eggs at 325 for 25 minutes then plunged directly into ice water. They were very easy to peel and the yoke was bright yellow. Somehow I always manage to get a greenish tint when I boil them. The only difference was that there were small brown spots on the whites where the egg touched the pan.
Last week I started working on the "no name" and "how we go home" boards during a craft day at my teaching buddy Karen's house. Getting creative with friends (and maybe a mojito or two) is even more fun!
|Used to hang papers with no names on, students are responsible for checking for their own paper and resubmitting properly.|
|I plan to use clothes pins with students names on them. Parents will clip them to the board at orientation to let me know how their child will go home all year. No more outdated lists for this girl.|
|Magnetic fishing pole!|
Pinterest inspires me to find/make/create new ways for my classroom to look more adorable and run more efficiently. I find new teaching ideas, lessons, units, and activities to use to supplement my curriculum. You can find new and sometimes better ways to organize yourself, monitor student growth, and generally create more engaging activities for your students!
How did you get creative this summer?
