Don't Bug Us, We're Reading!

Have you noticed my new blog design?  My friend Megan from I Teach. What's Your Superpower and A Bird in Hand Designs has an awesome package where you can Build Your Own Blog, so that's what I did!  I loved the original design I had, but just wanted a little bit of a "face-lift" and that's what I got!  Check out all her blog designs- they are super cute!

I Teach. What's Your Super Power?A Bird in Hand Designs



We started ACCESS testing this week, so I won't have any classroom-related material to share with you for three whole weeks, but I did want to share my spring bulletin board, which I'm pretty proud of!  I picked up a new pack of punch-out letters and some paper bugs at Lakeshore one night last week and put up this board before I went home on Friday:


I was a little disappointed with the lack of pop, so I reached out to my Insta-friends for some inspiration.  My friend Beverly had a great idea- add some tissue paper flowers!  Well, I sat down on Saturday with a huge pack of tissue paper and this tutorial and got to work!

My first one was a bust...even my husband laughed at it!  My second try was much better.  In fact, it looks almost exactly like the flowers from my wedding bouquet!  


After trying some ombre colors and various sizes, I put them up on the bulletin board.  Makes me happy every time I walk by!

Much more "WOW" don't you think?  I love it!  I seriously thought about spraying perfume/air freshener in my hallway...I'm still considering it.  Maybe as an April Fool's joke?   

Enjoy the rest of your week!
