i LOVE the idea of sharing the love with my fellow teachers as this school year is just starting up. I've linked up with Classroom Freebies and 4th Grade Frolics to do just that!
My friends went back to work today for those beginning of the year meetings and staff development. Since I myself am not returning this year, I was a little sad not to be with them. Anywho... I wanted to share a picture of a beginning of the year bulletin board I made a few years back. It looks a lot harder than it was. I bought a couple of 8x8 books of craft paper that already had cute designs on it. I used my Cricut to cut out my student's names in coordinating paper. I then used Popdots and craft glue to adhere them. I connected the paper together like a quilt using ribbons. My name was in the center. I used pre-cut letters from the local teacher store to make the title: Making Connections in 2nd Grade....well my "t" in connections obviously fell off before I could take a picture :-D I kept it up a good while because I had two outside bulletin boards. When I finally disassembled it, my students had a treasure to keep!
I will upload this to my TPT account so that you can download a better copy, but due to their fabulous sale, it won't let me right now. In the mean time, leave me your email if you wish & I will send the PDF right to ya!
