However, this also meant....new class room, re-decorating and revamping. OOH...lots of work! Needless to say...there is very little we do in our family that the whole family doesn't get involved in so this task has taken the later part of summer to accomplish but we got it done! Want to share with you some of the class room activity that's been going on.
She has had a Star theme going on already but this year we decided to jazz it up a little with Hollywood, movies, and popcorn.
On this board will go her lunch menu weekly for the kids to see.
Her Star qualities board; simple but cute with the red, black and yellow.
I especially like the red, black and yellow months of the year with the stars on them.
Awe...her little puppets for the "theatre" handed down to her by the former teacher of this class whose shoes will be hard to fill. Don't get any better than Miss Kelly Murphy. But, that is why God gave us our own shoes, right?
Her class rules.
Would you believe that I had enough black material stashed away in my little shed to cover everything she wanted covered in her classroom? Computer center, desk, and other things all got covered just like she wanted. LOL! See...it pays to HOARD at times!
Front of her desk draped with black material and red tulle. (my kind of colors)
Each cabinet is filled with something so we made labels that looked like a movie/theatre and placed them on each cabinet to show what was in the cabinet. I didn't make a picture of every one that we made but just wanted to show you what they looked like.
We actually made these little signs for a lot of different things in her room.
Speaking of library...love this!
Aren't the pop corn tubs just too cute?
Amazing at how just a piece of black material can shine things up.
Just got to have some crayons ya know....
We finally got her desks situated. She has always had 18 kids but this year was going to have 20. Smaller room meant less space so we had to put our thinking caps on. WORKED OUT GREAT!
Each child got a cute book to take home in their little lunch bags along with class information.
Who says you can't use your left over star plates from July 4th????
But right there within arms reach of a towel to dry those hands will be these words....
Love this! My friend Lauren gave me this idea because she too has this wording in her guest bathroom. Of course hers matches her decor but this is perfect for the classroom.
For Open House she set up stations for the parents. I didn't snap pics of every station but thought it was a cute idea.
Station 4 was too cute!
Parents could crab an apple off the Giving Tree and bring in the items needed. However, a blessing happened the night of Open House...parents brought in that night and filled her bins.
The Treasure chest! YES, loaded to the brim too!
For Open House she wanted each child to have something a little extra special to carry home so....
What better than popcorn?
My friend Andrea gave me a pop corn machine and the Manager at our local Ace Hardware donated me the little bags they use for popcorn. Turned out so cute and was a huge hit!
Right outside her class room is her main board and each star has a child's name on it.
Getting her board ready for 1st day of school.
I gave her this plaque when she began teaching 6 years ago.
Chilling out with a Starbucks! YEP, she knows it is going to be a long year........LOL!
Thanks for letting me share my
Pray for my daughter as she leads and guides these kids to a brighter tomorrow.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
