It's another one of my "Just Pinning It" posts. I added some extra comments in purple.
Not quite sure if I'll turn this into a weekly thing but I was Pinning(v.) today. I've actually not been on Pinterest in over a week. Not sure if you believe me or not but there were actually no withdrawal symptoms. I'm shocked, too.
So, here are a few of my most recent pins.

"Pajama Day tomorrow"
"Permission Slips Due"
"Field Trip Thursday!"
This app was awesome. About half of my classroom parents signed up for it last year, and so did I to make sure it worked. You can send out all kinds of reminders. This was great for field trips (where you need special clothes, a lunch, special shoes, etc) and tests. I'll be using it again next year. There's an app too--and you can schedule them in advance. Oh..and it's free.
2. Daily 5 Rotation Cards
I ended up making a digital presentation for my D5--but I began the year using these because I loved the looks of them.
(I haven't downloaded this yet, but I plan on it. I just really like that I can add levels and print labels)
This is the Classroom Library Company's accompanying app for managing book borrowing between teachers, parents, and
It allows you to scan, level, and inventory your entire Classroom Library as well. There's even a handy label printing function that allows you to print through a wireless connection! We have over 178,000 titles loaded with as much reading level information as we can find. We're constantly updating Guided Reading Levels, Lexile, Accelerated Reader, Reading Counts, DRA, and Reading Recovery and we are adding more every day
I did spend my 99cents on this--I was unhappy--left negative feedback...and the creator emailed me the next day. They've made some improvements. Once the school year started I didn't have time to level/inventory my library. I let it go by the wayside but maybe this summer I'll pick it back up.
4. Dollar Store Photo Album
I'm going to put flashcards into a cheap photo album....POOF...instant dry erase flashcards
I keep forgetting to get photo albums!!!
5. Spiral Bind books
I had my D5 book bound last summer. Fabulous. I plan on bringing some of my other books (Daily math, Daily writing, etc) to Staples and seeing if they can do it with those. I've used one Daily Math book for 5 years and the spine is wearing anyway.
