August Pinterest Pick 3 Linky!!

Welcome to August's edition of Pinterest Pick 3 Linky hosted by Pawsitively Teaching and Inspired Owl's Corner! This month's Pick 3... is all about August classroom ideas!! Enjoy!



I've been wanting to try these velcro dots with my calendar and keep putting it off. Then the school year starts and I just start all over using staples on my poor numbers. I keep seeing this pin and how fabulous it looks. This August, I will get this done :) 



Excellent read now that the school year is so close to starting. I have about two weeks to prepare with these useful suggestions!



I've been buying containers to give a few goodies to my teacher besties. I have many wonderful teacher friends/teammates and want to motivate them prior to starting the year. These baskets are adorable!


Check out some more Pick 3 Pinterest finds from these amazing Bloggers!!! 
Enjoy XOXO

Back to School Bilingual Resources


Hello everyone! If you are already back to school or in the planning process, I hope these bilingual resources come in handy. There is also a FREEBIE for you at the end. Enjoy!

1 ~ As my students are walking in the first day of school, I like to have this activity book printed while they all get settled in. They can color, write about themselves, their goals, and even start practicing syllables, editing, and writing skills as I am welcoming students or even organizing supplies. I also include pages on classroom rules and QR code practice! (Available in ENGLISH & SPANISH).


This resource is also included in a must have bundle you can check out here:



2 ~ A resource I begin using right away is this awesome word wall book available in SPANISH. Students will use this book to record word wall words throughout the year. The book is the perfect tool for writing time and students can even practice reading the words during independent reading.



3 ~ Along with the word wall book, students practice SPANISH high frequency words with these interactive and engaging pages.



4 ~ Time for a FREEBIE! As soon as my students walk in, I have a DAILY quick write ready for them. I use these writing cards to help me keep track of prompts I've used. I keep these on binder rings and just flip to a new one each day. Enjoy!


Need more bilingual resources? Check out my Monthly Word Work BUNDLE for a year's worth of activities!

Have a wonderful school year friends! Until next time, XOXO!
