The Classroom Creative

Have you guys heard of the new website The Classroom Creative yet? It's really an amazing site for parents and teachers alike! Here's a bit about it:
"Back when we were both teaching, we dreamed of a totally free website that would make lesson planning easier. We both remember late nights scouring search engine for unit ideas.
After searching 1000s of blogs and sites, nothing was exactly meeting our vision. So, we’ve spent the better part of the past year building this site. We wanted to feature and totally organize all the amazing ideas we were seeing…
So…this was born.
The classroom creative will feature the best of teaching, parenting, homeschooling, and creative blogs broken down in easy to navigate photo galleries by grade, subject, and unit. {You can explore the galleries by clicking on your preferred grade level above}.
Galleries will be updated daily with the newest and most creative ideas we can find on the web.
We also have sections of crafts broken down by holiday and season, a teacher’s lounge section to help with classroom management, and a parent’s corner to help with everything from meal planning to homework.
With the amount of information in search engines, looking for ideas to educate our children is an exhausting process. The Classroom Creative takes the dirty work out of planning, and give you more time back to work with your children.
We hope this site brings together parents, teachers, and homeschoolers while inspiring curiosity and creativity in your homes and schools.

This site will keep growing and changing to meet the needs of our hardest working readers: teachers, parents, homeschoolers, and therapists. Have ideas you’d like to see featured on the classroom creative? Submit your idea here.
Thanks for reading. Come by often.
Thank you,
Karen and Nicolette"
What a great idea! I am so glad I know Nicolette (yep, same Nicolette of the blog Momnivore's Dilemma that I hang with) and have known about this site from the beginning. It has so many great tips and ideas!
There is also information on social emotional and sensory play for all us parents with non-neurotypical children. This area (located under the preschool tab) has been very helpful!
There are quite a few crafts me and my kids will be doing this fall off the site for sure! I hope you all check it out, it really is a wonderful resource.
