Boarders for bulletin boards!!

I have always double boardered my bulletin boards- but this year I used four boarders
on my hall bulletin board.
It really made it stand out in the hall.  I also painted my boards black so I do not have to worry 
about paper or fabric. If I change my mind- it is an easy fix.

On the inside of my classroom there is a black boarder painted around my boards- so I just used three
boarders.  All the boards in my room have the same boarder for some consistency. 

You don't have to paint all the way to the edge. I hot glued the polk-a-dot boarder to the silver 
frame. It peels right off when you are ready to take it down.

Featured Teacher... Kayla Lawson

Kayla Lawson's first year to teach was last year. She taught kindergarten at Priceville Elementary School... and she ROCKS!!!!
I love how Kayla was consistent with her color theme throughout her classroom!

Thing 1 and Thing 2 are supporting the 7 Habits.
Do you see the adorable bags she has for her students to store their materials!!

Her students used the Seuss behavior chart to clip up and down!

Love the Horton quote above the alphabet!

This is Kayla and her sweet husband (who used to spend days and days mowing the school's grounds free on his off days before a mowing company
was hired- Husband of the Year)

Kayla's room was too cute!! Can't wait to see it this year because she is doing a summer classroom make over!!!
Thanks Kayla Lawson for letting me share your AWESOME Seuss-tastic classroom with the followers!!

If you are thinking of using a Dr. Seuss theme or even a Jungle/Safari theme you might be interested in our Elephant Glyph.
Here's a pic of the Elephant Glyph Kayla used for her hallway bulletin board during Read Across America Week this past year.

Here's a close-up of the oh-so-sweet elephant!
Click on the pic to go to our TpT store and look at the product! You'll love the math activities that go along with it.

Most Requested Item of All Time (for the Glyph Girls at Least)

Since starting our blog and posting pics of our classrooms, we have had tons of requests for instructions on how we made our hand-cut Alphabet cards that hang on the wall. You know how hard it is to find something cute that matches your classroom theme and doesn't look just like everyone else's! Well, Angela, being the super-talented-amazing-creative-artist that she is, just picks up a pair of scissors and starts cutting. Sometimes she sketches first, but she can really do it with just scissors. She created the Alphabet display for her own classroom several years ago and we were all in absolute awe.  Several teachers in my school begged and pleaded her help in making one but there is only so much of her to go around.

Soooo, I'm very pleased to announce that we have finally finished the Original Alphabet Patterns for you to be able to create your own alphabet display! You can customize the colors and accents to fit your decorating color scheme. We've included  all of the patterns, detailed instructions and lots and lots of photos. 

If laminated well, these will last for years in your classroom. Or at least until you're ready to redecorate again!!! It does take a little time to make, but we think you and your students will love it as much as we have. Click on any of the photos to go to our Teacher's Pay Teacher's store to purchase the patterns.

End of the year FUN!!!!

This is one of my most
favorite books of all!!!

So I save it for the very end of the year, or I have done it on book
character day....

and let them have at it!!!!

Then of course I used the skin color and colored myself back to
the same ole' me!!  Which was great until it rained!!
