I've been pulling late nights and having fun creating new items for my classroom. So far I've made another banner, this time red and white polka dots and more a pages to add to my plan book. I've repainted a shelf and found some cute new accents to go in my room.
The shelf was an old wood bookcase. I painted it with leftover paint I had at home and added some black and white polka dot ribbon to the edges. I also glued some black and white shelf liner I found at the Dollar Store to the back panel. It won't really show, except when the kids remove their boxes. I found the polka dot box ($4.99) and the READ BOOKS at TJ Maxx for $5.99 each, but I also just saw the READ BOOKS at Marshall's for the same price. Below is how my students store their individual books that they create in class. I purchased the boxes from IKEA last year. They were $2 for 5 boxes. I made labels for the front with student numbers so that I can keep reusing them. I just found some black with wihite polka dot fabric to use on the wall behind the shelf I can't wait to put it up.
