Summer is the perfect time for ice cream, but we are trying to eat healthy and lose a few pounds this summer. We have TONS of blueberries in our freezer, so I looked up ways to make blueberry frozen yogurt, without an ice cream maker. It was super easy to make and delicious.

This past spring, my mom asked me if I had anything I could use a little dish drainer for. I instantly said yes, without knowing what I would do with it. I have seen so many Pintrest projects with them. It was white and old looking. I spray painted it to match a color in my classroom. I then just attached the ribbon and now I have a charging station for my Kindles! Last year, I used buckets. They were really cute. Plus they were great, because the kiddos could take the whole bucket to their seat, but they NEVER ended up charging them and then they were always dead. This way, I will set this right next to my power strip and they can instantly plug them in when returning them each day.
Lastly, my team does a LOT of team planning. Before school starts we create a scope and sequence that maps out our entire curriculum for the entire year. We then use Unit by Design to create integrated units that we teach throughout the year. After creating our UbD template, we take a calendar and break it down even further. We don't do this so that we all are teaching the exact same thing each day, but instead so that we can share books and materials in an organized way. So, most times, we would end up searching for free calendars, while we were planning. I decided to go ahead and create a calendar for the entire year, as well as some planning pages that we could use as a team and I could use as a teacher/blogger/TpT seller. It goes from August-July.

Have a great week!
