A Peek Inside the Classroom


My BACK to SCHOOL favorite diy for the classroom was putting the class rule posters into IKEAS colorful picture frames.  As of now I have placed them on-top of the library. I also LOVE the way the double border looks against the black backing paper!! (so exciting)

My favorite back-to-school DIY

I filled up a gum ball machine with erasers. So fun to use as a little reward, I have it in my math center and usually use it when I see students trying hard during math workshop!
