August Pinterest Pick 3 Finds

I haven't quite wrapped my head around the fact that school starts tomorrow for me. I'm feeling nervous, excited, and overwhelmed! I learned so much last year, and I'm ready to take what I learned to make this the best school year ever! 
This month I am focusing on back-to-school related pins. Some of you might be in my shoes, and if you aren't you will be at some point soon! I always come away from this linky with so many great, new pins that I've never seen before!

Have you ever read any of Maria Dismondy's books? They are wonderful, and perfect for the beginning of the year. I love the compare/contrast activity the blogger shared using this book. This would be a great lesson on celebrating diversity at the beginning of the year! And if you are interested, here is a YouTube video of Maria reading Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun. And you can scroll down under Resources for a reading guide here

I can remember making a life-size paper doll when I was in third grade. I've always wanted to have my students make them for Back to School Night. I wish our B2S night was more of an open house, but the parents expect a teacher presentation, and need a place to sit and listen to me give the presentation. The kiddos' paper dolls might get squished! Maybe they can make mini versions to sit on top of their desks.

I think my teammates would love this little gift on the first day of school! I plan to buy polish for them in our school colors. A little pedicure set with the tags attached would be really cute too!  Such a fun, free idea and printable!
