chick brooding cabinet, via Ana White    While I love this cabinet and the idea behind it; having had baby chicks in my garage, I know that they make a HUGE dusty mess!!!  By the time they are old enough to leave the brooder, there is a thick layer of dust all over everything!  I would not want this in my house for that reason :/ by Kelly Michelle Chard

blogger writes, "5th grade teachers - This read aloud is a MUST!! It tells of the true story of Pocahontas. It goes along great with our social studies curriculum and is fun and interesting for students to listen to. I will be reading this for my second read aloud of the year (and it will be my 6th year of reading it aloud to my students - even I love it!)" by patrice

To get rid of any carpet stains... Love this cleaning idea, I have been using it for a while now but I don't vacuum the baking soda up just use the liquid solution first, then sprinkle the baking soda on the stain liberally, wait for it to dry on its own and then vacuum..... stain mysteriously disappears by simona.

For all cat owners out there: I think this is a great idea for anyone who doesn't like the mess that their cat leaves when they go to their litter box. Give them their own little litter box cubby room. It gives them their privacy and you can contain any mess on the outside of the litter box and easily clean it up. by penelope

This pin is from a third grade teacher who lets her students play boggle quietly when they are done with their reading work. I would use it in my classroom and use the letters that make up the vocabulary words from the story that they are currently reading. I think it's such a neat idea because it integrates reading and spelling. Students like any type of game during the school day. by ericka

This is a great reading chart to have in any grade, including 4th - 8th grade classrooms! It is a chart that talks about goals students have for their reading and when they achieve different steps they can move up on the poster. I think it would be a great incentive in the classroom for kids to want to read more! I would probably make mine a little more colorful and creative, but I love the idea! by becky

I like the idea of this dog feeder. Not only because of it’s stylish design and the fact that raised bowls are better for your dogs. I like it that it comes with a drawer underneath that you can store food, treats or your dog’s toys. An especially nice feature for dog lovers with limited space. by colette

- good idea - keep the dogs out of the area, and don't have to worry about cleaning it up for the kids to play. - one day, when we have dogs, and a yard.....Outdoor Play area. I love this idea. I still have room in the backyard for the dogs to run around but the kids play area stays nice and tidy. by luella

Love this idea to teach kids giving a book a chance.  "Blind Date with a Book"  Activity for independent reading.  Wrap up books and decorate with key words that relate to each.  Students pick a book, unwrap it, record it and read for 30 pages.  Good date=keep it, finish it, review it.  Bad date=return it, and write about why it wasn't the book for you.  Great "get to know yourself as a reader" activity!  I am SO doing this! by juliana

Send or deliver a box full of balloons to a child you love.  Fill each balloon with a little love note, joke, dollar or other treat.  She’s Crafty came up with the idea to send her nephew 20 $1 bills in balloons for his birthday, but I also think it would be great fun with other things besides just cash, and to do it “just because” for a child (or two or three!) who could use a fun surprise. by nanette

Beauty is not just this for me. Its the fact that her heart loves God and people. The fact that she is not afraid to voice her opinions. The fact that she has no qualms about living her life to the fullness of it. That and these aforementioned things are an understatement too. I love her. <3 by proteamundi
