I really wanted a way to put up some personal family photos and quick reminders around my "teacher" area. I didn't want it to take up a lot of space, I have a few frames but I really wanted it up off the counter because I plan on using that for materials this year. I was in Michaels again looking for something when I found these..
Cork squares, they came in packs of four and were on sale for 60% off so I got 8 squares for less than $3! They are perfect for the space I am wanting to use them in.
I wanted to dress them up to match my classroom so I got scrapbook paper in my colors, and spray adhesive. I cut the paper to fit each square and glued it on.
Simple, functional, makes me happy :)
I had this space above the clock in my classroom that was empty. It's right between two bulletin boards and it looked so blank. I decided to create a poster to put there. So I came up with this....
Here it is in that empty space.
I love the reminder every time I look at the clock! You can click on either of these pictures to download this print free!
Finally for this week I re-decorated my plastic drawers that will hold my science and social studies units. I used scrap book paper from Hobby Lobby and double sided tape to attach it. Since It's just me using the drawers I think it will hold up fine. I created the labels and printed them on business card stickers. I laminated them before sticking them on so I can write on them and wipe it off later if I need to. I know my units keep changing so I like to be able to change the labels easily.
My classroom is really coming together. Looking forward to sharing the finished product soon. Right now I am waiting for a whiteboard to replace my chalkboard, then I can finally finish the front of the room and I'll be ready!
