I finally finished decorating my classroom in time for our open house tonight! I decided to do a picnic theme this year!!
This is what I've hung outside in the hallway to display student work! I bought mini clothespins at JoAnns, hot glued little scrap booking sunflowers to them, then hot glued them to the background that I bought at School Box! (actually my amazon friend Allison did it for me....thanks!).
I'm going to try these baskets as the students place to keep their pencils, crayons, glue, etc. I hot glued mini red solo cups inside the basket. Then, I place another cup with a number in each inside the cups I glued down. This is to keep them from falling down inside the basket and also allows the students to take their cup out of the basket to put on their desk when needed.
This is my Picnic Reading Nook! I found those green mats at Garden ridge!! They have a kind of woven pattern on them that makes it look like grass! I took the pic before I glued grass boarder on the baseboard, which I bought at School Box!
This is the backside of my storage shelf that rolls. I'll use this to display student work in the classroom.
I am using the backside of my bookshelf for this board. I used ladybug push pins and ball cnaim necklaces. For every 100 minutes a student reads at home and records on their reading log, they earn a bead for their necklace! The students LOVE this! We have a big ceremony at the end of the year when we total up
how many minutes their beads represent and present them like they do the medals at the Olympics. So fun!
Foam board, scrapbook paper, mod podge, vinyl used to cut out letters on my cricut, and painted ladybug from Hobby Lobby!
So this took me FOREVER! But I think it was worth it! I cut gingham, tulle, and burlap strips and tied them on yarn! The. I got glue the sunflowers onto the ribbons! I used command hooks to hang them around the board. I'm kinda in love with it....
I bought this shelf super cheap at Walmart I think..... And just added boarder!
I bought this dry erase word wall on Amazon.com. It had a construction scene all around the edges with bricks and cones and such. It didn't match my theme so I PAINTED it!!!
I decided to use sunflowers to label my computers! Each one is a letter(because I ran out of number stickers!).
This is the sign I made on vista print for my Picnic Reading Nook! This helps student choose a "Just Right" book.
