July Pick 3 Pinterest Party

I look forward to this link up with Pawsitively Teaching and the Inspired Owl every month. First of all I love both of their catchy names. Second I have three pawsome little friends at my home, so of course I am a fan and I love, love, love owls. With that being said welcome to July's pick 3 party! Here are my three picks for the month. Enjoy!

1 Cup Whole Milk ¾ Sugar 2 Cups Heavy Cream 1 Tablespoon Vanilla 1 Cup Crushed Oreo Cookies

Tomorrow is the 4th of July shhhh don't tell anyone because it is a secret. Ha ha just kidding. I think everyone knows tomorrow is Independence Day. I just love patriotism and all the decor, parties, and American pride. We are going to a party tomorrow and I decided to bring homemade ice cream and not just any homemade ice cream- cookies and cream to be exact! I hope it turns out fabulous. 

How To Make A T-Shirt Quilt: For Dummies  My son already has so many t-shirts that he is growing out of....these shirts are from shows he's done and different things he is into. I think this is a great way to chronicle different parts of his life.

Ok I'm really not into sewing. I mean I would love to be able to sew, but I have tried and I am not great. I wonder if my mom can sew me one of these from my high school and college shirts. I would love one to commemorate all of my crazy life experiences thus far. 

Only have 60 minutes for math? Here is a Math workshop/rotation model that an upper elementary teachers uses in her room that takes 60 minutes to work!

I clicked on this Pinterest find and boy oh boy did I find a jackpot. This blog has a ton of wonderful ideas. The way she teaches her students has to be in the most hands on genuinely creative, thoughtful lessons I have ever seen. From, math, literacy, social studies, science and on the lessons are interactive and are soooo much more than worksheets. I hope to implement some of these ideas into my third year that I am about to embark on. 


  1. I wanted to make homemade ice cream but my machine broke! I need to get a new one. That quilt is really cute- I don't sew either! I'm going to check out your last one on math workshop. I want to do more of a Daily 5 type of math rotation next year, and it sounds like that blog post has lots of great info in it! Thank you for sharing and linking up!

  2. I steal my children's t-shirts when they leave for college. Well, some of them. And then my sister makes them into a really cute quilt for them when they graduate! Find someone who'll teach you (yeah, I know, in your spare time!) or have someone make it for you!

  3. I have been saving my kids t-shirts to make a quilt. They bring back such memories.
