I picked up yellow sand buckets from the dollar store.  I had to switch out the shovels so they would match my pink & green theme.  I decided this would be a perfect gift for several of our friends who have summer birthdays and needed boy & girl versions. by nanette

pinner says Football made by me, my mom, and my husband.  This is my son's football we have in our yard.  My husband cut the football out of wood.  My mom painted it with outdoor paint, I cut out the vinyl letters with outdoor quality vinyl, clear coated it a few times, and then my husband attached it to a stake.  So far, I've made one more, and currently working on two more. by rhea

I knew someone like this. I always knew it deep down, but after I cut her out of my life, I realized she was most definitely doing to me what she had done to every single other person she had ever met. I'm so glad I've gotten to a point in my life where I know I'm worth more than to allow some people to rent space in my head. by LucyB

Guided reading... Behind my table I have these Sterlite containers (I love my containers!). Each group has a drawer where I store their books and materials for the upcoming week.

Give each student colored index cards/post-its for their work space. During independent work time or group work, the students use the cards. A teacher I used to work with put red cards on popsicle sticks at the student work centers & prompted them to hold it up when they needed help, rather than calling out. Her classroom was always so quiet! by briana

Painting in a bag (my little one was about 9 months old here). This was a craft that we made for my mom. I put white paint on blue paper and stuck it all into a gallon sized storage bag. She just squished the paint around. I also like to put white paper in with blobs of different colored paints. . . she can see how they mix together to make other colors.

This is a file of a teacher big book of the song lyrics to Must Be Santa. I needed to practice the song with my students for their Christmas program.

Contouring is so easy to do, yet so many girls don't do it. I rarely leave the house now with out bronzer on my nose and cheeks. Make sure to play around & see where your natural shadows lie. Normally bronzer goes in the hollow of your cheeks, around the nose, jaw line & hair line. Blush ONLY at the apples, and highlighter on brow bone, cupids bow, cheek bones, forehead, and nose. by cheryllynnboyer329
