Favorite Pins Friday!

Okay I'm a little late...favorite pins Saturday! But I am addicted to Pinterest, as I'm pretty sure we all are, so I couldn't resist linking up with The First Grade Parade! Call me crazy but I am getting really excited for the beginning of school so most of my pins lately have been related to school.

 FREE Editable Chevron Binder Covers--lots of colors for organizing
1. This is my favorite pin of the week. These are free editable chevron binder covers by A Year of Many Firsts. I have already personalized them with the titles of all my binders and printed. Done!
Chevron Pencil Bucket Labels
2. I so wish I had these last year. If I had a dollar for everytime one of my students broke a pencil and started waving it at me during the middle of a lesson...I am SO making bins with these cute little labels this year!

4. I love this! It's stuff we all know but a great reminder and a great way to stay focused at the beginning of the year. Very helpful!

1. 10 things to do everyday to stay organized! Whoa...I need to do this!
2. OBSESSED with this skirt!
Better Life Bags
3. I am dying for this Better Life Bag. These are so cute and handmade. The owner of this company didn't even intend to start it! She just wanted a cute diaper bag so she made it herself and posted a picture on facebook and everyone went crazy! She decided if she was going to start a business she wanted to give back in some way. She found women who were having trouble making a living to help her craft these bags. What an amazing story!



  1. I have little buckets for sharpened and unsharpened pencils. It has been a lifesaver! I highly recommend that you introduce those in your classroom! I love the labels you pinned!


    1. Hi Sarah! I know, I don't know why I have never done them in the past! I just checked out your favorite pins and I am obsessed with the missing tooth subtraction! That is the cutest thing! Can't wait to use that this year, my kids will LOVE it.

  2. Tess, I just found your blog today through the Picture Book linky party. Wow, the story about the woman making the bags was so wonderful! I'm so glad I found you. If you have a second, come over to my blog and pick up some freebies on my latest post.
