This is a picture of the chalkboard that Johnny painted black. I am using it as a vocabulary word wall so the ugly shade of green is now a nice pretty black. It matches better but is still magnetic!
I used cake boards purchased in the cake making section as the background. I printed the rules on purple paper in the shape of a circle and cut out Then we taped them on. Next I made a bow for the top, and hung them on a ribbon. I love the cake boards. They match the curtains.
Instead of "I Can" statements this year, we are using "Essential Questions". I am using the chart and sentence strips to write the Essential Questions for the week.
View from the Back
I have 4 hall passes for the kids to use. They place one on their desk before going to the restroom or to get water.
I purchased letters and spray painted them. Then I used a white paint pen to add details.
A fish aquarium is to come later.
Small Group Table
Filing Cabinet Redo
This filing cabinet started out as an ugly gray that was all scratched up. First I painted the cabinet with black oil based paint. Next I used my curtain fabric and mod podged it onto the front of the drawers. I made two: a 2 drawer and a 4 drawer. I LOVE how they turned out. They really add to the room.
I purchased plant and animal cell models for my science table.
I am very please with how my room turned out. I still have things I need to do but am waiting until I can walk again. Although this room is small it may be my favorite one yet. I love it!
