Pinterest and Post its

First let me say that pinterest is addictive so be careful!:) Anywho I was pinning away this morning and ran across this classroom clock project which I've been eye balling at Lakeshore made out of post its or scrapbook paper. I didn't have any scrapbook paper so post its it was which by the way I have a ton of because Staples has them for $1.00 with a limit of 2 until today or tomorrow and Walmart and Target price matching their add! Ok back to the project here is the project on pinterest and mine which is unfinished because I want to laminate them all together before I cut them out.

After I finished what I could with that one I decided to start on my story wands and my trusty o printer was out of ink!  No worries I had all of these Post its, a sharpie and  popsicle sticks. 

Here are some pictures of my Story Wands which will be used during Reader's Workshop. I do plan to laminate them so they will last all year.

Can't wait to see what you guys are doing!


  1. Those are SO cute! I will have to look into making some! I've been afraid to get on Pinterest. I'm already on the computer too much as it is. :)

  2. I just saw the story wands in the Lakeshore catalog, and I said to myself... I can make that!! I love yours and can't wait to make my own!! :-)


  3. Is it wrong I pinned this post on pinterest? I love this idea! Thanks for sharing. I am so going to do this! Kim SaylorsLog

  4. This is an awesome idea and I have the Lakeshore Story wands but just one set. I love that I can make more for Literacy Stations. Thanks so much for the creative idea!

  5. So glad you joined my linky party! Love your ideas!

  7. What clever and original ideas! I guess I never thought about using Post-Its with the wands. I teach fourth grade social studies, and I 'm thinking I could so something similar with nonfiction text structures. Thanks for sharing!

  8. I'm so glad I found your blog because I love these ideas!

  9. Hi there! I'm a new follower! I found you on the linky party. I did something similar with my clock, but I found tiny bright colored star die cuts - wrote the number on them - then taped them directly on my clock. It turned out super cute. I don't have pics, but when I get in my classroom in a few weeks - I'll post one! Come by and say hi!

  10. I love this idea, but, do laminate them BEFORE you put them on the sticks, right? Or is there some ju-ju magic way of laminating something hard like popsicle sticks??

  11. Thought about that and I took them off the sticks and laminated them and cut them away from the adhesive and slid the stick thru. No ju-ju magic way of laminating a stick that would be easier though:)
