Classroom Decor, Pigeon and More!

-

My first Made It involves one of my students' all time favorite characters.  I've been wanting to get some custom art for my class but that costs a fortune.  I also wanted to somehow tie in my woodland theme for next year within it.  I finally came up with the idea of mixing characters with my woodland theme and that resulted in this painting:
Pigeon: Acrylics on a 16x20 inch canvas.
I love how it turned out and can't wait to hang this up in our classroom.  It would be so easy to incorporate him into different themes too.  Now I can't stop thinking of him deep sea diving in scuba gear for an ocean theme or him wearing safari gear in a jungle themed room.  Endless possiblities!

Now this next idea is my husband's brilliant work.  He suggested that I NOT paint a cover on Pigeon's book.  He said that I should incorporate my author studies within the painting.  What?? An interactive painting? Yep, his book cover will be changing each month along with our author studies and Pigeon will be reading one of the books we will be reading.  The first one is Chrysanthemum because that is the first book we will read as a class! 
All I did was print a cover from online and I trimmed around Pigeon's hand to make it look like he is  holding the book.  LOVE it!
 A couple years ago I created an objectives bulletin board that was just recently ruined this summer while moving classrooms. As much as I love using my Cricut, I knew it was going to take me forever to recreate it that way.  I decided to remake it digitally with my new clip art. 
To create this bulletin board, I cut out the headings and glued them onto my scrapbook paper.  I then laminated the whole sheet and adhered a sheet protector where my objectives will be slipped in.
Doing this is much easier to do than writing them on the board every single day.
 The beauty of the headers being separate is that they can be attached to any color scrapbook paper to fit any color scheme.
I tried a few different ones with them.
These objectives were created by Debbie Crockett.  I love them because they include a student friendly version on top and the CCSS on the bottom for me to reference to.  You can find her sets HERE.

This is how they look all put together:
I shared a picture of them on Instagram and I had several requests for the set, so they are now in my TpT store.  If you are interested in this set of headers, please click below.

Made It 3 is another one for the woodland theme:

A few weeks ago I created a woodland owl set but I received requests for various animals on a set.  So here it is!  Now I can't make up my mind on which version to use in class. I love them all!

My newest sets now include monthly drawers to get even more organized :) I'm kind of liking how they look set up as a tower.

These Woodland Labels are available by clicking HERE.

Those of you who purchased my Melonheadz Edition of the drawers, please re-download because I added new drawers to that set as well!  Take a peek below to see what they look like.
This set is available by clicking HERE.
Can you tell that I love brights? I created some cards to hand out to my kids.  My original ones were owl themed but I wanted to create a set that would match my Melonheadz Kids.  What I'm liking the most is that they are editable so the front of them can be customized for any occasion.  This is what they look like when they are customized:
My plan is to create all my birthday cards at the begining of the year and have them ready to go for each student.  I usually have a stash of cards in my desk, but what would be more special than having a card given to you with your name on it?  I think the kids will get a kick out of it. 

That's it for me!  I have a really tricky Made It in mind for next week.  I hope I don't mess it up!  Make sure you and go link up with Tara for Monday Made It and check out what everyone made!

  12. I really like the objectives board! So clean and easy to update! I'm awful at writing them in, so having them printed ahead of time would save a lot of headache.

  20. I bought your melonheadz drawers and I am currently trying to put together the three drawer organizer :) I'm wondering how you put them together - did you laminate and cut them out, glue them on the outside, the inside? Any advice would be helpful :)))
