So, I finally got into my classroom today. Last week, we were moving into our new place. Also, when I went over there, everything that was in my classroom was out in the hallway. I think maintenance was waxing my floor or something.
Here are before pictures (Did you notice any windows?):
So, for one bulletin board, I decided to do a facebook timeline page theme based on an idea I got from pinterest. However, since most people are being forced to switch to the timeline mode, I went with that format instead. I even printed out my own facebook timeline as reference. Instead of paper, I used plastic table covers from party city ($1.99 each...plus you can donate $1 to make-a-wish foundation there right now). I also took some screen shots of the generic things on facebook, such as the search bar, the area to write on the wall, etc.
I decided to have some of the posts be real world problems
for the chapter/unit each class will be studying.
Like I said in the title, it's a work in progress.
I don't like how it looks now.
I took notes on my printout of what I want to do to change it.
I will post an update tomorrow evening after I make progress.
Recognize this, anyone?
For the other bulletin board, I used the big part of the blue table cloth that I didn't use for the top strip of the facebook board. This one is also not finished.
Some of you may recognize these from
a previous #made4math post.
I used leftover streamers from our wedding shower
a few years ago as a border.
OBTW, this came with my supplemental materials for my textbooks (SO EXCITED!):
I will post a more detailed crochet pattern for the flower pencil toppers from last week separately on my other blog. I use that blog for photo scavenger hunts and crochet patterns/projects.
