I happily decided to go into school this past Monday to start working in my classroom only to find out that summer school was held in my room and the custodians were not finished cleaning. I can't get in until this following Monday...that leaves me one week until PD meetings start! I always panic, but it will get done...
So, since I couldn't get work done IN my room, I decided to do some crafting FOR my room. I have a bee theme, so it's all about the bees!
Here is the ceiling tile art I made for myself. The body is a little bit too big, but it will have to do. Check out my post from yesterday to see the tiles I made for my friends. : )
I decided to try out some bee handprints with my own two kids as a trial for my first graders. I am going to have my mom (retired teacher) come in on the first day to make these with the kids for my skinny bulletin board that goes along the top of my very long white board. It should be cute when it is finished!
|After you attach the head to the large piece of white paper, trim around the whole body of the bee. |
Add the wings to the backside of the bee.
|I used waxed paper cut into a heart shape for the wings.|
|Add pipe cleaners with tape on the back of the head.|
And for the Grand Finale. My absolute favorite! I used wooden letters, scrapbook paper and Mod Podge (that stuff is amazing!). If you are interested in purchasing these letters or for making a custom request, please visit my Etsy store HERE.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my projects as much as I enjoyed making them!
