Pandora for the Classroom

So I found this AMAZING blog with many, many, many Pandora stations for the classroom. 
I use Pandora Every morning in first grade as part of our morning routine. The kids come in, put their things away and get straight to work. I have calm Pandora music playing the Whole time. 
Pandora is free but for extra you can pay to get the commercials to stop. They aren't often but they do interrupt and get the kids off topic of working :( 
Here is the link to that Amazing blog with so many Pandora stations for you to check out. 

Here are a few I enjoy in the Classroom! 
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2
  • Classical radio 
  • Disney (children's)  
  • Peaceful Holidays 
  • Piano Magic

Personal Favorites! 
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2
  • Josh Groban 
  • Bing Crosby 
  • Bing Crosby Christmas
  • Christmas (of course!) 
  • Today's Pop (when I'm in the mood) 

 What are your favorite Pandora stations, personal or for the classroom? Comment below and let me know!

Spring Book Sale!

Twice a year our local library hold a book sale. For teachers this is the Best time to get books, especially if you are changing grades... Yes I am moving to Third Grade! I am so pumped, but more about that later. Third grade reads books then takes an AR test, the more points they get then they get a reward. AR BookFinder US is so amazing! They give you all the info on the books then you can print it out or save the information. 
I spend $69.50 on all my books, I am so specific because I went in with $70... You can't get much closer than that. 
As you can see Zeus wanted to help me sort them.
P.S. I bought the cutest shoes! I ordered them online and it was a nightmare! I won't be ordering from this company again. I am hoping that they hold up. They are Not Tom's but I wish they were! I will keep you posted.
