My First Favorite Pins Friday!

Today I'm linking up with Cara at the Frist Grade Parade for Favorite Pins Friday.  I've never joined this party before, but I've been reading everyone's posts and decided to join the fun!

I will admit, I haven't been on Pinterest a lot lately because I just got overwhelmed!  Between reading blogs, keeping up with Instagram and Facebook, and trying to just enjoy my summer, I had to let something go and it was Pinterest.  I know, I just heard a collective <GASP> from everyone!  Now that Back to School is not far off, I need to get back on there and start gathering ideas again!
Here's a few of my favorite pins that I've found recently.
2013 Blogging Planner {FREE Printable}
I haven't printed this yet, but I think I'm going to!  As my blog has gained more followers, and I've gotten more serious about what I'm doing, I think I need to be a little more organized about it.  I know that will be hard when school starts again.  I have an Erin Condren Teacher Planner and I was thinking of using those calendars for blog reminders, too, but I think I'm going to use this instead.
My New Behavior Reward System
I've read this blog post a million times.  I want to do this so bad, but I'm worried about the management of it all.  I'm not sure I can keep up!  I'm sure I'll bite the bullet and get this going before school starts.  It comes from one of my fave bloggers, so I'm sure it must be terrific!
FUN Hallway Behavior Management Idea. Before you leave the classroom pick a chip with a students name but don't tell who it is. They are the mystery walker and you are watching that student the entire time. If they do a good job in the hall, they get a ticket or prize.
I'm definitely implementing this next year.  I love the idea! 
And, finally, because I haven't read nearly enough this summer because I'm just not that into the books I've chosen, I'm going to try to make it through all 14 of these!  I probably won't even go see the movies because they never do the book justice!
Now go link up with Cara and see what everyone else has been pinning this week!


  1. The planner looks so pretty - I think that makes it all the more fun to use.

  2. I've never seen the Mystery Walker idea! Thank you!
