Did you notice anything different? Yup, check out the new blog name! After spending that last 10 of my 14 years teaching in kindergarten, I am moving to 1st grade! I am totally excited! Don't get me wrong, I ADORE Kindergarten! It will always have a special place in my heart. However, I was ready for a change and there was an opportunity at my school and so I went for it!
I decided to keep my blog and just change the name. Now, I need to get my blog button fixed as well!
My mind has been racing with this opportunity to start a new room. I do plan to stay with my green and blue theme. I have been inspired by some blog posts and Pinterest. So, of course this involved shopping. So, I am linky up with Ladybug's Teacher Files: Summer Shopping Linky Party-June Edition. Yeah, I am just going to make in time to post for June! I am sure there will be more to post in July and August as well!
On to the goodies I have found so far!
The baskets came from Dollar General. I have plenty of baskets and tubs, but I am working on getting more in green and blue to go with my color theme.
I am sure that you have seen the tissue paper Pom Poms floating around blogland. I wanted to give it a try! This my first go at it. Not bad, but hope to do better with the rest!
Last is the plastic tableclover. This for an idea that I am kicking around....
I saw some blog posts about using butcher paper to make scrunchy borders for you bulletin boards.
I got the idea from the pictures and links below-they both provide the how-to's!
You also HAVE to check out Just Another Day in First Grade! Awesome!
Anyways, I went to get my fadeless paper (it lasts me a good 2-3 year without having to replace it) for my new bulletin boards. When I got home I realized that they were white on the back. That would not work for the boarder part. I was bummed! But them I saw the above tablecover at the Dollar General! I tested it at home and I think it will work great for the scrunchy boarder! If it works out, I will get more with also blue to complete my boards. I'll post those once I can bet back in and get it done!!
Have a great Saturday!
