July's 3 Classroom Idea Pins

Hi Folks! I just got back from a weekend away and have picked 3 Pins to share through Pawsitively Learning, Just Reed, and Inspired Owl's Corner's link-up– Thanks, Ladies!


I have to move classrooms this summer, so this month's Pick 3 is about classroom set up and decor. If you are not interested in classroom details at the moment, then you can just move along until next time... oh, after you enter the $100 TPT giveaway that I'm part of this week– skootch down to bottom of post to check it out!

As I said, I'm busy setting up a new classroom this summer. I would save these classroom Pin ideas to share for next month, as more teachers might be interested, but if you are like me, you like to get ideas and then let them stew a bit in your brain to make best use of them. I also want to have them in mind as I do the set up so I can accommodate them from the get-go, and not have to redo what I've already done. 




Pin number one is from GritAndGlory.com and one way to let kids use a white board. I have a white board that is going to be near my makers space, and although I might use it as display, I would like to "give it to the kids" so to speak. It could be as simple as Expo markers being used for graffiti, or it could be that I give them a supply of post-its to use. I could put up a word that we are discussing and then have them draw and write about that. An advantage is that I could gather the post-its so I have a bit of a record when it was time to change topics. Or it could be less structured and just let them go at it and see what they do.  



Pin number two from PlayBasedLearning.com.au shows two ways to make hanging display or drying space for paintings. I love letting the kidpeople paint, but the drying space is always an issue. My old room was in a centrum, so I had much more space out in the central area for drying artwork. Both the circular and rectangular devices in the picture are for drying laundry. I want whichever one I use to be over by the makers space, too, as that is where painting will happen. I think the rectangular one would offer more drying room but it takes up more space, of course. I'll have to keep my eye out this summer whenever I'm in laundry departments with these in mind.



This idea comes from AGoldenAfternoon.com and is so cute and so easy I hope to use it somewhere. I have my eye out for washies that go with my color scheme. 

Well, that's all for my Pins. I do need to share, though, that I'm part of a blog hop going on this week. You can pick up a freebie letter writing packet right now which is usually on my TPT store, AND you can enter to win a $100 TPT gift certificate. Just think of all the materials you could put in your cart if you had $100 to shop with. Click on the picture below to go to the post to find the goodies. 


Now check out all the wonderful Pins on this month's Pick 3 linky party below!



Thanks for stopping by!
