It's a Bright Ideas Round-up!

Welcome to the November edition of the Bright Ideas Link-Up! This one is a special one! Over the past 10 months, we have shared thousands of great ideas through our monthly Bright Ideas event. This month, we’re re-capping all of those great ideas, just in case you missed any! Below you will find some of my bright ideas from the past several months: 

One of my most viewed "Bright Ideas" post showed one way I work more problem solving into my classroom.  If you have an extra pocket chart--you are good to go!  Click the picture to take you to the full post to see more.

Another popular one was my post about how my library is organized.  This is a constantly evolving system...but I know where almost all of my 5,000+ books are!

Finally, I thought I'd share out my post about using cooperative name tags in the classroom.  This SO comes in handy when you want to make groups...and some of you might want to switch up those name tags pretty soon--are they starting to look a little rough around the edges?  Check out my post about it!

So there you go!  Three "Bright Ideas" for you to take with you...and check BELOW for a zillion more!  Pull up a cozy blanket and a snack and let yourself  be energized!


  1. Your classroom library is so inviting!

  2. Love your problem-solving pocket chart! That really motivates me to incorporate more problem-solving into my classroom! Thanks, Meg!
