Favorite Pins Friday - More Little Pinterest Loves To Share!

Happy Friday peeps!  Lindsay here . . .

Well I'm back today with another edition of Favorite Pins Friday {a linky with The First Grade Parade}!!!

Yup.  You guessed it. In addition to chasing around my increasingly naughtier (Lord grant me patience!!) toddler I have been busy pinning this week . . . and there was some good stuff! 

Soooo . . . here is my Little List of Pinterest Loves to share with y'all!!

First off . . . in honor of a recent argument, er . . . eh . . . "discussion" that I had with my husband this week, I HAD to share this bit of humor brought to you by Humor Train

So true, right ladies???
Now I love, love, LOVE when I find some fun, easy to implement center games, activities and printables to use in my classroom, and this week I hit the jackpot with all things MATH:
I am a sucker for all dice-related math activities, so it was no surprise this caught my eye!!  Love it - a great freebie brought to you by The Lesson Plan Diva!!

And then another fun math game you can do with those two-sided counters that are collecting dust in your math manipulatives shelf (or maybe that's just me!!) . . . This this activity is one of many from First Grader At Last's TPT store - check out her Fun-tastic Ten Frames pack!

And finally . . . I loved this visual for my kiddos of the different strategies they could use when solving a math problem!  So good for when they are doing their CGI math problems!!  Again . . . its another TPT goodie that is on my Wishlist - brought to you by Class of Kinders.  Check out her Solving Math Problems {Strategies Posters For Addition}!

Another fun teaching idea I found was a Language Arts activity using chip trays from the Dollar Store (seriously such a good purchase - I use them for everything!!).  I like how From Kindergarten With Love used it to sort beginning sounds . . . I am already thinking this would be a great idea for a digraph sort!!

On a less academic, but still school-related note, I found this cute idea for a class faces garland.  How cute would that be to hang up all year, or even for Open House???  I love it!  Thanks to Classroom DIY for such a cute and EASY décor idea!!

And because, as y'all know, I LOOOOOOVE me some organizational ideas and printables, I couldn't help myself when I saw this adorable "This Week" planner page.  Its FREE from The Harmonized House Project so hurry up and download yours today!!

And last but not least, I am still drooling over this vegetarian (just for you Kerri!!) quinoa taco recipe!!  I haven't made it yet, but it will be making its debut in the Messyhair household very soon! Thanks to Cooking Classy for this delicious looking dish!  (Although I know my version won't come out looking quite that pretty!!)

Well, that's it for today folks!  Our lil family of three (and a half) are headed to Palm Springs tomorrow (holy heat wave!!) for a couple days of relaxation, so I am off to pack!  Or at least . . . to make lists about eventually packing!!!

Chat soon!

Lindsay, I love the dice games. I don't know about you, but I love finding games that are simple to learn and to explain. I also love the math strategy poster. I think I would like to make it into an anchor chart. The "face garland" is such a cute idea, you're right it would be great to have up at open house.

Even my big kids could do the face garland and love it. This is such a cute idea and I have never seen that pin before. Thanks for sharing.
