pick 3 pinterest party - August

Happy August!

For us, August means that we are half way through summer holidays.  But I know that lots of schools go back this month.


I am joining for their Pinterest Linky party with 3 back to school pins that caught my eye and my fancy.


Thanks for hosting PAWsitively Teaching and Inspired Owl's Corner.


This caught my eye as a great classroom reminder - and I love the use of the clock!  I don't think it would be effective in my kindergarten class ("focus" is not one of the sight words that I hope that they will read by the end of the year), but I could really use it in my office at home.

I think that it is really important, and beneficial to children's learning, to bring nature into the classroom (and the kids out into nature).  Love this rock name idea from Stimulating Learning with Rachel.  Time to go and collect some more rocks :)

This is a crummy photo, but a brilliant idea.  A student teacher in Australia gave her students an oval outline and had them draw their faces with pencil.  She then used their self portraits as a page border. What a lovely way to build class community and identity.
