Top 10 Pins of the Year Linky Party

I am joining Rachel over at Views from Room 205 for a Top Ten Pins of the Year Linky Party.   How can I only pick 10?

Having students create replicas of stores and other landmarks in our community seems like a lot of fun.

I get a kick out of reading first grade writing and can't believe how much many of them grow as writers in just a year's time.  Here is a cute and useful display to use in your classroom.  It is on my Summer To Do List! 

I love the creative way Mrs. Nichols displays her class rules.  
Cute and Crafty.
Cute and Crafty again!?  Is this becoming a theme?
When I saw these I had to make one for my student teacher.  She loved it!  Would it be silly to make myself one?
This quote summed up how I feel about my marriage of 20 years.  In October, we renewed our vows and included our children in the ceremony.  It was so much more special than even the first!
  I hope to talk my hubby into making something like this over the summer.
What teacher doesn't love Dr Seuss?   I loved him as a little kid & may love him even more as a BIG kid.  I have to make these trees next year.
Any time I can miss eating and learning together, I am a happy teacher.  
Why couldn't I make one of these for the classroom?  It could be a reading bench during Daily 5 & serve as a filing cabinet also.
And I am sure my kiddos would like Mrs. Pippen's take on using their "writer's eyes" to cheek their work.
Hope you found something you can't wait to pin!
