I have been back to school now for two weeks, one week of meetings and setting up my classroom and one full week with my new students. I can seriously say I have not been this tired in AGES! This year my schedule has changed and I half to be at work 30 minutes earlier. I know you are thinking 30 minutes, that's not bad. But it has been HARD! All I wanted to do on Friday night was sleep--and I got a solid 10 hours!
While I was preparing my classroom, I did complete some Pinterest crafts for my room. So teacher friends you may enjoy these pictures!
|I was assigned a bulletin board for the beginning of the year. So I found a cute one on Pinterest. I changed it a little bit and it just may be my favorite one ever!|
I knew I wanted to decorate my door with a text message theme but when I was completed I had some extra room so I found a cartoon of a mad scientist on Pinterest. I hand drew this guy by staring at his image on the computer. And it turned out really well. Check out his original look here!

What have you read lately?
I used my hot glue gun a lot. I glued pom poms to the ends of all of my dry erase markers so the students would have an automatic eraser. We have already used them. They work great.
I made clothes pins with mini chalkboards on them. They started as balsa wood and I spray painted them with chalkboard paint. I have already used them to hang things up on my news "clothes lines" to display student work...but I have not tried the chalkboard. As it turns out, I do not have any chalk! LOL
I also bought some boxed paper mache letters from HL and painted them with acrylic paints. Once they were dried, I hot glued them together to make this little standing decor!
Well that's all for now! I managed to be pretty happy with all of my crafts! Hopefully throughout the year I have time for more!
That's....just what jess is up to! :)
