Carnival of Projects
DIY:: When you have to hang something with exact holes, photocopy the back and use as a template. Are you kidding me?
Wooden Growth Chart Ruler - love this. We just removed our pantry door with all the kids' measurements. Want to re-create it and this might be a good start. I also might want one in my classroom!!
Create your own bowl out of a record album by melting it in your oven! So simple, and the outcome is something you can have on display in your house. Coast Music Therapy tip: choose a record that has a special meaning to you (but maybe has a few scratches) as a daily inspiration to store your trinkets.
DIY make a small heater for a small room in your home on a boat, etc. anywhere it gets cold - and do it for pennies a day! Tutorial video in link. Two flower pots, one large and one smaller, a metal bread type tin, and 4 small votive candles for every four hours of heat. Tricky and clever way to get toasty!
Heating your home office for 8 pence a day-too cool! Could have used this during the blizzard last year!! Potheadforkandle - www.keepturningle...
Idea Paint - cover a wall for students to collaborate on a larger, interactive space.... #ettipad
Whoa. So super awesome. Especially for when you want to be outside but are too lazy to do much of anything. :) Now I just need a tree to hold it!
Have students decorate an umbrella as a gift for classroom volunteers. Add a tag that says, "Whatever the weather, we think you shine!"
Tea Cup Bird Baths and Feeders I have teacups and saucers galore!!! Hmmm.....
Lorax trees! Too super cute and super easy to make. Who is coming into Room 204 to help make them??
Ok so here is my $30 pocket chart with magnetic dry erase board. The frame is from Target. It is Room Essentials Clothes rack with extension arms on both sides. I have one hanging out. I added a magnetic dry erase board another teacher threw out. Put red duck tape around battered edges. Drilled 6 holes and zip tied it to the clothes rack. I added 2 large baskets under it to hold manipulatives. So sturdy I can put multiple charts on it with shower curtain hangers. Oh and it has wheels to roll.
Purchase stair risers from your local home improvement store...paint them white and add some window boxes... small herb garden?
