March Bulletin Board

I thought I would share my March bulletin board in my classroom.  I made a tree from bulletin board paper a few years ago and laminated it and I use on my bulletin board most of the year!  I just change the leaves, theme and sign to make it work.  For March, I put up my green leaves which I made from a sample book of wallpaper I got for free at Crayons to Computers.  Then I added glitter shamrocks that I found in The One Spot at Target.  I attached the shamrocks with my ladybug push pins for good luck.

The sign says, “Good Luck Is Nice But Hard Work Is Better!” which is so true…  I used a font I made called Ckawesome.  It’s available for free in my store.  Here is the link!

I love bulletin boards but as a teacher and mommy, I don’t have tons of time to make elaborate ones!  The tree is a nice way to spruce up my classroom each month.  My students like to check out the tree and ask me about it.  I hope you like it!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Classroom Snapshots

I am really feeling my classroom so far this year.  I spend so much time in there that I want it to feel nice and homey.  I also want my kids to like it and want to be there!  I thought I would share some pics, so I made a college.

The top 3 pics are bulletin boards in my room.  Calendar, Wild about Fluency, and then the ABC center alphabet banner.  I am going to put fluency goal numbers on the zebra bulletin board and then put students name under their goals as they reach them.  The alphabet banner I found on Teachers pay Teachers for free!  Love it.  I hung it with clothespins on silver elastic string.  The tins in the middle I found at the One Spot at Target.  They have little chalkboard labels on them.  I filled a vase with colorful plastic letters and tied a purple bow on it for decoration on a table in my classroom.  I saw it on Pinterest a couple years ago.  Lots of goodies are from Crayons to Computers including the “C” décor on my desk, all the felt I used for bulletin board backdrop, and some of the picture frames.  I have several pictures of my little boy.  I can’t get enough of his sweet face.  I tell my students all about him too so it gives them a face to go with the name.  🙂  I also got 2 packs of wallpaper samples at Crayons to Computers, which I am loving.  I used them to make the leaves on the “apple tree” at the bottom, and for background paper for some other projects.  I use the cart of drawers for students’ materials.  Works really well for me as an Intervention Specialist.  I can put students’ individualized work and activities in their drawer, and keep their finished products in there as well.  My word wall is the “technology themed” one I made and it’s available in my TpT store for $2.00. The “Masterpieces” heading at the bottom is where I put all the artwork and notes my students give me.  ❤  I hope you like it!

My school year has started of great and I feel so blessed.

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good for those who are called according to his purpose.”

Romans 8:28

Student Awards

I presented students with end of the year awards.  It was so nice to see them all smile and feel proud of themselves.  I read the award aloud in the small group and then gave students the chance to comment on their awards.  I used materials all from Crayons to Computers, including the paper, cut-outs and stickers. Here is a pic.
