Rockin Resources: Linky Party

This is a fun linky party created by Teacher Idea Factory.  The goal is to share ideas that you use in your classroom that you live by!  What are some great resources and tricks that work for you in the classroom?? Here are some of mine...

Here are some of my favorite things to use in the classroom!

1.  I LOVE using the "Have Fun Teaching" letter videos on YouTube.  Here is a sample video of the letter B.  I let the kids sing and sometimes dance while the video plays!  I use this the first day of the week, when I introduce a new letter!  The kids get so excited and it is a fun way to keep them engaged!

2.  I am all about Finger Puppets.  I use them all the time in class to engage the kids and keep them looking at me!  This is my favorite one....the octopus finger.  I actually did a blog post about it a while back {check it out HERE}.  

3.  Pinterest.  Need I say more?  I am so thankful that Pinterest is not blocked at my work, because I feel like I use it all day long.  I use it for inspiration, for videos that I pinned, craft ideas, or pictures.  Here is a link to my "Kinder Video" pinterest board that I use to keep videos that I want to show my students!

4.  I love using Digital Clip Art from KPM Doodles.  Here is the link to check out the shop on ETSY.  {click on the photo}

Let me know if you link up too so I can see your favorite goodies to use in the classroom! :)


  1. Michelle . . . thank you so much for joining in on the Linky! Your resources are fantastic. Your finger puppet is killer. i can think of one child in particular in my classroom who would flip out if he saw it :) Have a great week and thanks again!

  2. I love your rockin' resources. I wish Pinterest wasn't blocked at our school. I have things pinned on my boards that I would love to have access to at school. I also linked up. I would love for you to come visit me!
