I'm really lovin' these linky parties. I did not plan on posting a second time today, but I wanted to share my trash to treasure final product! Oh Boy! 4th Grade is on my list now!
Here is my trash ( it was however, my husband's tresure). It hung in our apartment for a long time, didn't quite get "lost in the move", but has yet to find a home in our new home...until I stumbled upon a home-maker's blog (see previous post here).
So, I thought and thought and thought and decided to turn this into a classroom calendar/dry erase board.
I will go back and add in our classroom's schedule when it is determined in the fall. I've also decided to put a lunch section above the calendar. I will have a calendar manager that will change our special area and lunch choice daily. SO SUPER EXCITED!!
The designs and text are written in sharpie on the wrong side of the glass. I printed what I wanted on the computer and held it up to the light. The little designs around the calendar are a leaf, a snowflake, and a flower...all found online and traced. The blog I got the idea from used vinyl stickers, but I don't have one of those awesome machines.
