Back to School Ideas

 I have about a month left before pre-service week, but I am already anticipating back to school prep. Thankfully, Pinterest makes finding and organizing ideas so much easier.

Check out what I found this week:
This is such a great way to keep behavior notes organized.  Now, I just need to find this container.

I love this tutorial!  I can't wait to make a mini for my back to school literature.

With all of the chaos of back to school, I need to keep my blogging organized!  
I have always struggled to keep classroom jobs organized.  I love the idea of having a daily "helping hand." 
This is the greatest!  I can't wait to make this for Back to School Night.
Last year, I used tubs along the counters for centers, but I love the idea of organizing centers throughout my classroom.
I am still contemplating having a classroom pet.  Does anyone have any advice?
This is the Daily 5 JACKPOT!
I love how these turned out.  Do you give colleagues a Beginning of the Year gift?
This pack is fully editable!  Perfect for beginning of the year organization!

Check out the back to school finds other teachers have pinned.


  1. You have some great pins there! I may or may not have borrowed a few... I really like the parent flip book for open house. That's something I might put together in my last precious weeks of summer! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks, Kristin! I can't wait to make the parent flip book, too. I really think it will be the perfect resource this year.


  2. Glad to see/read that I'm not the only one chomping at the bit to get started with the '13-'14 school year. Nice blog. Hands down Pinterest has to be a teacher's best friend. Happy teaching. 5 bow ties
