Pinterest Scavenger Hunt Contest and Favorite Pins Friday!!

I am linking up this Friday with First Grade Parade for Favorite Pins Friday!
What a great way to take a look back and get some new ideas from all the link ups.
Hint: There is a surprise at the end of this post that you won't want to miss...

Pin #1:  It seems like everyone has heard of the awesome behavior beads from Run! Miss Nelson's Got the Camera.  Alison at Rockin' and Lovin' Learnin' designed these Rockin' Behavior Beads!

Pin #2:  This is a tutorial posted in March by Mrs. Stanford's Class but I just found it this week!  It shows you how to lock an iPad to keep a student on a certain activity/app at center time.  I think this would give me the assurance I need for those tech savvy kids when I can't be looking over their shoulder:)

Pin #3: Personalized hand sanitizer bottle DIY from Head Over Heels for Teaching.  
I want to make these for my teacher friends and my daughter's teacher!  

Pin #4:  Box of 150 Children's books for about $34 (after shipping and handling).  AMAZING DEAL!
Pin #5: Here is a Cucumber Salad with just 5 ingredients and 10 minutes of prep time!  Perfect for summertime!  Love!!

Speaking of Pinterest, there is a new Collaborative Board for grades 4-6 Pins set up by the amazing Diane at Fifth in the Middle.  I am a lucky contributor!

  1. 150 books for only $34? That's a steal of a deal. Have you tried it? I'm curious how many books would fall within the 4th grade reading level (although I'm sure I could find good use for all the others.)

    I love your new collaborative Pinterest board!

  2. Love the board! I don't see the pin code in any of the descriptions but I'm glad I joined the board anyway because there are great ideas there! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Thanks for the shout-out, Holly! Miss Nelson and I had a great time getting together making the Rockin' Behavior Beads and Intermediate set. I'm loving the new Collaborative Board. I've gotten some great ideas already and have been pinning! Thank you!
