I am a first grade teacher who has rediscovered a love for firsties this year. I have taught pre-k, kindergarten, first grade and even second over the past 16 years. I have been married for 17 years to my wonderful husband and have been blessed with 2 very active boys.

Ten Pin Linky

I just love the downtime during the summer to read blogs, peruse Pinterest and dream of the most fabulous classroom.  I am linking up with Ashley at Just Reed for The Ten Pin Linky.  This week's theme is Classroom Decor:)

1.  I love my apple theme:)  Such a cute door hanger! 

Apple Teacher Door or Classroom Sign - cute painted apple signs - teacher signs - teacher gifts

2.  I love organization almost as much as I love the color red!

3.  This door decor is a MUST HAVE for me this year!

4. I love the lantern apples.  I already hung my apples, but need to make my stems a little bolder.

5.  Telling time is such a hard concept for firsties.  I want to start much earlier in the year.

6.  Love this idea.  I would change the papers up a bit, but super cute for the library perhaps.

7.  I love that the time is magnetic:)  I can't tell you how many times I lose my timer!

8.  I always look at this  pocket chart but never purchase it.  Thinking I will use it this year as a vocabulary chart.
9.  I love cute organization that helps me and the kids.  These are both super ideas!

10.  Another MUST DO this summer.  I love the Dr. Seuss picture frames that were made by covering square canvas frames with the plastic Dr. Seuss bags (from Target I believe)! 

There is nothing like a little Pinterest for a  little  lot of inspiration!  I would love to to follow me on Pinterest!

  1. Hi Tammy,

    It's my first day off, so that's exactly what I'm doing - reading blogs and Pinterest pinning. I'm an apple theme fan. Love the apple theme photos.

  4. Thanks for linking up. I have that same apple tree door décor pinned. I considered posting it as one of my favorites, so I'm glad you did! :)

  5. I love that door. It is so cute and perfect for an apple theme. I've been wanting to make some kind of tree for my room for a while.

  6. Love coming to your blog to see what you are up too. I will have to link up tomorrow with this linky. I have sooooo many pinterest ideas that I want to put into my classroom. I love the Dr. Seuss READ picture. Cute Idea.
