I'll start out with a few of my favorite classroom finds as of lately.
A (super cute) desktop file system for papers that need copied, filed, sent home, passed out, etc. I have seen this idea done other ways but I like that this one doesn't take up much space but is still in my face enough to remind me!
An observation system with post-its! I love this idea for writing workshop conferencing (or even guided reading groups). I like to keep a notebook with a few pages dedicated to each student and you can easily just transfer the post-its to the larger notebook and use them for parent teacher conferences, report cards, and planning!
I love this idea for home or school! I decided to use this idea for my classroom, but on a smaller scale. Stay tuned later this week for my DIY project to spruce up my classroom library! (Stay tuned?? Am I 80 years old talking about television programs? Oh dear.....)
Love this idea! Last year I had the same system set up but I used the plastic magazine boxes from the Target dollar spot. My papers were always falling over and getting curled up. This system will work much better and take up less room! Not to mention I already have those containers....score!
Now for some non-teaching Pinterest finds!
Sweet potato fries. I. am. obsessed. Seriously, I can't get enough of these lately! For my craving fix, I bought a bag of frozen fries but I'm planning on trying this homemade recipe soon!
I'm going to attempt a project like this with some bookshelves I have. I wish my bookshelves were white or black, but they're "maple" finish. I'm going to have to figure out what pattern I can use to convince myself I shouldn't buy new bookshelves :)
Homemade bird feeders! This would be fun to do with your kiddos. Me? I just think it would look cute hanging in my backyard :) I love watching the birds. I'm an old lady like that.
I need this ottoman for my family room. I know this trend is a few years old but I love the storage this ottoman will give us! Now I'm just trying to convince hubby. He doesn't believe in redecorating. I know, it's a sin.
How cute is this idea? I already have these items sitting around (besides the flowers, which I could get from my garden). Flip a wine glass (or martini/margarita) upside down and voila, cute centerpieces! I like the idea of putting other things under the glasses, too. Christmas bulbs, beads, etc.

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday!
