Top Ten Back To School Pinterest Boards

Top 10 Back To School Boards on Pinterest...Can you feel it? That Back To School excitement is in the air!  I went to Staples last week, to buy a calendar, and school supplies were everywhere! So, of course, when I got home I had to do a little surfing on Pinterest for new classroom ideas!

If you're a Pinterest fanatic like I am, you are always looking for new and innovative ideas! But girl.....surfing around that sight can eat up a lot of time!  Sometimes I sit down on a Saturday morning with a cup of tea and my computer and the next thing I know my kids are asking me "What's for lunch?"  So I thought I would save you some time (and help keep your family from and make a list of my Top 10 Back To School Boards on Pinterest! Here goes!


Yep, that's me!  I've been pinning for a long time and the first place I always stop are my own boards for inspiration! I have over 8K pins with boards that would be great for all K-3 teachers. If you are looking for ideas for Back to School or Classroom Management you can check them out here. Do you  see all those boards right down below?  Those are all from Firstieland and FILLED TO THE BRIM with great teaching ideas! You can follow me right here to keep up with all my latest pins!

First Grade Fun Times

Alisa, from First Grade Fun Times has over 250 pins that will get you rockin and rollin for September.  She has a cute pin on shoe tying strategies (now YOU KNOW we all need to see that one!)  Every year I have a "Shoe Tying Club" in my classroom. I found some cute cardboard shoes with real laces at the Dollar Tree.  I give one to each of my students and have them practice at home. When they can bring their shoe back to school and show me that they can tie their laces, they became a member of the shoe tying club and their name goes on our bulletin board.! Check out all of Alisa's September pins here.
