Pinterest = Professional Development

Today is the first day I'm linking up with Jivey for her Workshop Wednesday! 

I'm thinking there should be some sort of formula used by school districts: x number of school related pins = x number of recertification points! haha Wouldn't that be nice? I think I'd be set for the rest of my teaching career!

I wanted to start out with a cute little back to school idea I used last year and plan on using again this year. I had these little treats hidden in a cabinet and during a restroom break on the first day I had my aid pull them out as a surprise. This worked great because I was able to give the kiddos a welcome treat and everyone had a snack on the first day!

I just ran across this beautiful idea yesterday and I know I'll be doing this next year. I've never been very good at posting the books we read as a class because I don't know where to put them, so this looks like the perfect solution to my problem!

And because I cannot get a break between these two pictures for the life of me I'll just write about the last pin here! :) I'm planning on doing a major revamp of my reading homework this year and I found this great sheet for FREE! I definitely have in mind doing something like this where students respond more to what they read.
