Feelin' Crafty

Every so often I get the urge to craft so I slide on over to my computer, open up Pinterest and start clicking. And then usually I get so overwhelmed that I call my crafting session complete.  Either that or someone is crying and wants chocolate milk. Eh. All in a day's work.

Here are a few of my most favorite pins lately.  I have cited the original source.  Please, please, please DO NOT pin these from my site.  I am including the source underneath the photo that goes directly to the correct owner of the idea. If you pin it from me I am "stealing" their Pinterest traffic and that would just make the Pinterest Police (and me) sad.

I am so making these cookies this week.  How cute are they?!?!?!

I thought this poster was BRILLIANT. All higher order thinking and stuff like that.  This would be a great beginning of the year lesson to define metacognition and then highlight each strategy as it was taught throughout the year. 
Me like.

I have seen this commercial a million times and never thought of using it this way until I saw the pin!  The original pinner noted that he/ she was going to use it as an example of backing up your reasons and opinions with facts in opinion writing.  That.is.awesome.

Although I am not in the classroom this year, I have to admit this made me a bit jealous.  Holy cow, how creative is THAT!??  The rest of the hall displays are just as cute.  *Iwantthatparentinmyroom.

Kinley needs this tree.  Simple as that.  She is three and I think this year she is starting to really *get* Christmas.  I already bought the felt and have a half made version of a Jack O'Lantern.  I hope to finish it before she graduates.

We have done some crafting at home together.  Kinley loves to "do art." 

We went on a walk and collected leaves.  Then we made leaf rubbings when we came home.  So simple, but she loved it!

We also did apple stamping and she loved that too.  I have pictures somewhere!
