Ideas, Books, and More!

Good Morning, blog land!

I have jumped back into pinterest with both feet, and I wanted to share some awesome things that I have found.

I am not an organized person by nature.  I TRY to be, really I do, but I think that I am missing that gene.  It drives my mom, who is SUPER organized, crazy.  In order to be organized, I need pictures, step-by-step instructions, and prayer!  I found this pin, and automatically thought, "That's for me!"  Check this out:

How awesome is this idea?  Why haven't I thought of this before?!  Now there is NO excuse for my firsties (or me) to not put things back the way they belong!!

Speaking of organization, look at this:

You know the saying a picture is worth a thousand words? 

I found a really neat acronym anchor chart for kids to remember what they need for a complete sentence.  How neat is this?

One thing that I have wanted to implement in my classroom is silent signals.  I was blog hopping the other day and found this:

I will ABSOLUTELY be using these next year.  CLICK HERE to head over to A Cupcake for the Teacher's blog and check out her neat ideas.

Okay, last thing and I'll end this marathon post.  I saw this book:

I am very intrigued, but don't want to get it until I get some feedback from my bloggy friends.  Has anyone read this book?  Have you heard anything about it?  What do you think?

I look forward to hearing from you!

Happy Tuesday!
