Pinterest top 10 for next school year

Pinterest is an explosion of wonderful ideas, and at times can be overwhelming. I decided to wade through my "For School" board and pick the top 10 ideas I want to implement in my classroom next year.

1. Interactive Student Notebooks - I wish I had found these sooner!

2. T-Shirt Book Project

3. Magnetic Boggle - What a fun easy game that is already differentiated!

4. Easy Dry Erase Markers with Erasers - I have dry erase markers, I have pom poms, I have a glue gun.

5. Adjectives Frame - not only would students be practicing adjectives, they would be building confidence in themselves! Plus the photos would be great on our end-of-year slide show.

6. Personalized Class Stationery - We write letters throughout the year and I know the kids would get excited about writing on their unique class stationery. Plus, I'd get to use them too!

7. Roll a Brain Break - I always forget the different Brain Gym exercises and get stuck doing the same few. This is easily posted on the wall/board and has tons of variety. Plus, it's FREE!

8. Cell Phone Pals - I'm always looking for fun ways to buddy up my kiddos.

9. Organization! I'm not an expert at it, but I get better every year. My file cabinet is not backed up to a wall this year so I'll be hanging those file pockets up this year.

10. Classbook - The Social Networking Bulletin Board!

There are so many more pins that I want (and will!) use in my classroom this year, but these are on my MUST DO list. What are your favorite pins?
