Funny brain teaser I give my kids every year:
Do they have 4th of July in England?
(The kids almost all say no, because England lost the war.)
But the answer is yes. The calendar in England has a July 4th.
I know, I know... cheesy right?
Now on to making every day Red,White, and Blue with a patriotic room theme!
I have posted about it before here.
I will give you the highlights.
|Also known as my teacher bulletin board.|
|I love having a border around my white board space!|
I created these posters last summer as part of Made It Monday. Find them here.
|Dressing up my file cabinets.|
|The kids are called a "Congress" instead of a class. So this is their classroom library.|
|Don't want to forget the patriotic bulletin boards. |
You can see more of them here.
Now on to the new stuff!
|A giant bucket to collect our pop tabs for Ronald McDonald House, our school charity drive.|
|plastic table cloths|
|Here I come, Made It Monday: patriotic flower pens!|
|This giant paper clip is going to be my reminder to "keep it all together."|
Found at Hobby Lobby on clearance!
|This is one of the trays for turning in papers. Found it at Hobby Lobby on sale!|
|More trays for my desk. Found at Target, 2 for $4.00!|
|Even my teacher bag fits into my room theme.|
One last thing that EVERY teacher who likes their custodian needs.
|A GIANT MAGNET! $4.00 at Michaels!!!|
I plan to use this to pick up all the dropped staples from my hallway and classroom bulletin boards.
Hope your 4th of July is full of friends, food, and fireworks!
