1st Pin- I found this pin and thought not only how pretty, but how appropriate! I needed something like this in my classroom last year without a doubt. It is designed for children who need a break to shake and wait for the glitter to settle. I see this as a positive tool to use for my little kiddos that need a sensory break, brain break, or any break for that matter.

2nd Pin- I have always been Montessori-inspired… My constructivist mind luckily always gets the best of me! This pin reminded me of my grandmother's house- engulfed with baskets! Natural wood is clean, simplistic, and essential… need I say more?

3rd Pin- Now, I don't have tile floors in my classroom, but I just HAD to share this! These chair socks are adorable and may even prevent those ear-terrifying screeches when metal chairs scrape the floor… Plus the pattern seems simple enough!

4th Pin- This Mumma's Life was a great mom when she thought up this brilliant idea! I am familiar with sand writing, but honestly didn't think too much about using salt. I have been somewhat obsessed with making/finding sandpaper letters as a tactile writing center. I have reexamined my initial plan and am on the salt tray fad now!

5th Pin- Dandelions and Dragonflies gave a beautiful tour of her classroom- where I picked out this special find! I have always struggled with putting my mentor texts for writing workshop in a designated area… they just build up so quickly throughout the week! Between my read aloud books and mentor texts, I surely have an intermingled collection! This bucket serves as a perfect spot for students to go when they need some writing inspiration.
