Okay, school is back in session, so I wanted to share a few things I made for one of my sons previous teachers.
First is a bulletin board for the birthdays of the children in the class. I used Create-a-Critter for the candle flame and balloons and I used Storybook for the big letters. I used regular construction paper and laminated it. Laminated paper cut wonderfully on the expression. I used colored laminated copy paper for the various candle colors.
The next bulletin board I did was the Accelerated Reader board. We are the Sipple Stallions so the teacher thought it would be cute to use little horses for the board. I cutout the bookmarks from the Animal Kingdom cart and I also used Platian Schoolbook, and Hello Kitty Font. Again I cut these from laminated construction papers and they held up nicely the entire school year. -- Opps, don't have a picture of this one.
Now for my favorite project. This was so fun to make. It is a homework reward board. The teacher found the idea on-line and she just wanted me to copy it and then color it – I HAD BIGGER IDEAS. Here is what I came up with. I used several carts on this – Everyday Paper Dolls, Plantain Schoolbook, Hello Kitty Font, Life’s a Beach, and Locker Talk-- sorry I do not have all the measurement for this. I printed the game cards on the computer. This was fun for the kids and they used it all year.
Another thing I did d for the classroom was decorate the door for end of year testing. They have a little competition each year to encourage the students. Here is the door I did for her. I used Plantin Schoolbook, Walk in my Garden and Create a Critter for the little inch worm.
I inked the edges and curled the petals – I thought the colors were nice and bight.
