Back-to-School Pinspiration



It's summer. The sun is hot, the beach is calling. It's reallllllllly hard to think about school. But even though my mind feels like it's a million miles away from school, the calendar disagrees. Luckily, over on Pinterest, the pinners keep on pinning! And it's a good thing, because if it weren't for all this Pinspiration, it would be EVEN harder to wrap my mind around the cruel fact that summer is not actually infinite.  

Today, I wanted to share a round up of 5 of my favorite Pinterest boards that are keeping me inspired this summer and helping me to prepare for back-to-school time! These boards are focused on organizing and managing the classroom....because I envision myself as a VERY organized teacher every year in July. Ha!

Click on the title of each board to check it out on Pinterest and follow along.

1) ATUE: Oraganization
This is one of our collaborative boards here at All Things Upper Elementary, and it is one of my favorites.

2) One Mess at a Time
This is my personal board where I pin all kinds of ideas that inspire me to clean up my big fat mess.

3) Classroom Management and Organization 
A collaborative blog owned by Rachel Lynette with tons of teachers contributing their own finds.

4) Organization
This is where our fearless leader, Jennifer Findley, pins her organizational finds!

5) ThirdGradeTroop
This collaborative board (owned by Charity Preston) isn't specific to organization and management, but there are tons of relevant ideas pinned to it all the time.

All that Pinspiration has helped me keep the creative juices flowing this summer and I've made some organizational products for my TpT store. Here are some freebies for you:

These Chevron Nameplates are a free item in my TpT store. Click the picture below to download a copy of your own.


These Paint Chip Inspired Calendars are FREE on my blog, One Lesson at a Time! Click the picture below to check out the blog post and download a copy of the calendars for free from Google Drive. 



Do you have a Pinterest board dedicated to organization? If so, leave a link in the comments and I'll come follow you! Because, let's face it, this girl needs all the help she can get.

Enjoy your summer, my friends!!

  5. Pinterest never fails to give lots of awesome inspirations for organizing stuff. It’s nice to know that you have adequate source of ideas when you’re planning to organize your classroom materials. It’s kinda hard to maintain orderliness in a classroom, especially when kids aren’t used to returning the things that they got from a shelf. Hehe! Kidding aside, I hope you’re not having any trouble with organizing paper works! Thanks for the share! :)
