So today is Made4Math Montuesday!! (Just go with it.) Due to our hectic weekend, I didn't have much time to think about what I wanted to do, but I think I was pretty productive considering today turned into a busy day as well.
Often times, I throw together bulletin boards at the last minute and leave them that way for the entire school year. All of the ideas I've seen on blogs and pins have inspired me to start slowly. See, my mom is what some would call a scrapper. She wants me to scrapbook with her so badly...but I just can't seem to get into it. She gave me a whole bunch of scrapbook pages and even one of those machines that cut out letters:
I decided to use these resources to start creating a bulletin board slowly at home.
At first, I came up with this...
(the letters came from scrapbook paper that had numbers on it)
...but the gaps bothered me, so I added a cartoon
someone gave me a while ago.
I think that if you click the picture, you might be able to read the cartoon...if you're curious.
I figured this could be in the upper lefthand corner of a bulletin board that displays the current unit. In the near future, I will be purchasing colored tablecloths for the backgrounds of my bulletin boards...one of the many ideas I found on pinterest.
I know it's not much...but at least I tried! I hope this coming weekend will bring the inverse of this past weekend so that I can come up with more ideas for the classroom.
