This was made by unwrapping crayons, laying them on their sides, and putting a hairdryer to them! It was very simple, and took about an hour (with the unwrapping crayons, gluing them down, blasting them, etc). I love how it turned out!
This was made in the same kind of fashion. I glued crayons (in their wrappers) to the edge of the canvas, and used my hair dryer to help them melt down. I then turned the canvas around, and added the flowers! I used a die-cut to make the flowers.
The stop light is my best friend. Specialists at my school work on a green, yellow, red system and the stop light is an excellent visual for my kids to see what color they are on. The signs next to it say,
Green: I tried really hard, I did my very best, I paid attention
Yellow: I tried some of the time, I didn't always do my best, I didn't always pay attention
Red: I didn't do do my best, I didn't pay attention, I gave up trying
M - Make Good Choices
U- Use Good Manners
S - Speak when the teacher allows it
I - Involve yourself in all activities
C- Care for Music Room Equipment
"I get by with a little help from my friends!" Although my students aren't really familiar with this song, I love it! It's lyrics are perfect for the elementary music classroom.
"Each person is like a single note, together we make a masterpiece"
On the first day of school I had each of my children color in their own music note. That way, they will always know that they contributed to our masterpiece!
Did I mention that I have two rooms to decorate too? My projects never end.
