Happy summer! I've started CREATING already and I bet many of you have, as well! I love getting ready for the new school year. I've had a BLAST working this spring as a teacher at an outdoor education school. How cool is it to be PAID to hike, belay, etc.? Yep. Pretty fun! The best part - I accepted a new position teaching 6th grade and was a bit nervous to work with a new grade level. However, the outdoor education school had all 6th grade students! AND, I fell in love with the age level! The 6th graders are TONS of fun! I've enjoyed every minute of it!
I admit, I got on the lightbox bandwagon! I've seen some great ideas and want to join in on the fun! I bought a LightBox from Amazon, then purchased Vellum paper from Staples and printed out my own phrases. I chose many phrases from Kid President like this one below. I personalized by adding my own Emoji I created using my iPad Emoji app.
Speaking of Emojis, I had fun creating Emojis of myself, then cutting them out using my Cricut to create stickers.
My next project was tons of fun. My husband is residing our house and was throwing our old shutters away. So...I grabbed 2 up quickly to make signs for my classroom!
I decided this one would be used for birthdays. I haven't decided if I will hang up names or pictures yet...it may depend on how much time I have once school starts!
My other project I created earlier and wrote a post about it. I bought a frame at Hobby Lobby and wrote with chalk on it to hang by my desk. I'll post it here since it is a "creation" !
My classroom theme will be black/white/chalkboard/burlap so I think it will all fit fine!
Finally...my Erin Condren Planner! I've been busy planning out the next year and filling in school dates. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this planner!!
Lesson planning and keeping organized takes time. Why not do it in style? It helps me feel better! (smile)
Next I will work on creating some stickers for weekly planning so that I don't have to write the same thing each week. I use to create the whole page via PowerPoint and glue in the planner. But this planner is simply too pretty to do that! I will opt for cute stickers this time. Want your own? Click my share link HERE!!
