Pinspired and Positive Thinking Thursday = Two For Thursday!

Today I'm trying a fun new link-up sponsored by Just a Primary Girl:

I have to say that I LOVE Pinterest - so many creative ideas!  I have 283 pins.

Here's a pin your can check out about an Anchor Chart for Reading:

I also found a perfect pin to help me with my measurement lessons that I'll be doing shortly at
Measuring to the Nearest Inch:

Here's a non-school pin with information about the Old State House in Boston:

See that balcony?  Every July 4th, an actor dressed in colonial clothing stands on that balcony and reads the Declaration of Independence at 10 o'clock.  Some day I'm going to go hear it myself.

Now it's time for some positive thinking with Jennifer from Mrs. Laffin's Laughings:

Last night while reading my April Oprah magazine, I came across an article titled "What Do I Really Want To Do All Day?"  This article includes an interview with Maureen Taylor who is a career coach in California.  Here is her response to the question, "How do you choose the right career?"

Think back to who you were in second grade.  Some psychologists believe it's around that age - the first period of time many of us can remember - when we become individuals, when we fully grasp the meaning of right and wrong.  It's also when we tended to gravitate toward what made us happy.  In second grade, were you an athlete, a bookworm, an artist?  You're still the same person.......

The next question was "And how do you know if you're in the wrong career?
You're not only stressed out - which is normal - you're drained....When people are in the wrong position, they're tired all the time.

When I was in third grade, I know that I wanted to be a teacher - that goes along with the first answer; however, teaching really makes you tired all the time.  I still love being a teacher, even if I'm tired all the time!

Until next time,....


  1. Hi Susan,
    Have you discovered Sharpie Flip Chart markers? I really like them because they don't bleed through to the next page- I get them at Staples.

  2. I am exhausted every day too, but I can't wait to go back the next day. I think we've found the right careers! Thanks for sharing these thoughts.
