Well friends I met the goal for today! I found a home for every unplaced item in my new classroom. For the most part my room is ready but I will wait until it is COMPLETELY ready before the big reveal. With that being said, I am so excited about an uplanned yet amazing accomplishment that I just have to give you a sneak peak...
Some of you may remember a post I made a couple of weeks ago about wanting to use the white board in the back of my room as my word wall. Well I have since changed my mind. Instead I have decided to make that white board the back drop to my small group reading table. I will eventually put my workshop stations pocket chart on the board. Above this white board are 3 super ugly metal strips for the adjustment of the board. Well today, I was staring at those ugly strips trying to decide what to do about them when I had a "lightbulb" moment. Earlier this summer I had purchased 7 green hoola skirts from the dollar spot in Target. I had no idea how I would use them but I was feeling impulsive that day and brought them home with me. Today I found out EXACTLY how I wanted to use them. I cut the skirts in half to make them long strips and then hung them to cover the super ugly metal strips!
Hope you enjoyed the sneak peak. Stay tuned for the Big Reveal. Open house is next week for us so it will definitely be ready by then!
