May Pick 3 Linky

I'm linking up today with Pick 3:  This Month's Top Pinterest Picks hosted by Pawsitively Teaching and Inspired Owl's Corner.

When you think of May, you of course think of Mother's Day.  I love this Mother's Day project idea from Lolly Jane!

This would make such a cute Mothers Day or any day gift. So simple. Frame, scrapbook paper, cupcake liner and photo.

In the post that features this project, she actually has 25 Mother's Day ideas you can print or make!

My next couple of pins show you where my mind is already...

End of the Year countdown! Blog post includes a FREEBIE of the "Days Until We Are THIRD Graders!" cloud :)

I love this idea from Bright Concepts 4 Teachers!  At the end of each day she chooses a student to tear off a ring representing the number of days left in the year.  She says it's also fun to write a question inside the ring that the students have to answer.  I was thinking it would be fun to write a little reward inside each ring too, like 15 minutes of extra recess or 15 minutes of quiet ball.  You could tear it off with 15 minutes left in the day and then have a little bit of fun!

 And last but foremost in my mind is from Scholastic...
