  • I ❤️ all of the colors in this fabric! The back side is denim. #studentbirthday
  • There’s no doubt in my mind that the young lady who receives this birthday pillow tomorrow will cherish it. I’m also certain she will go very far in life but being a fourth grader can be rough when it comes to finding good friends. And girls can be mean! I hope she’ll remember to keep her head high and follow her arrow. 💕Also, I have denim for days thanks to remnants of fabric from my bulletin boards. Makes the perfect pillow pockets! (Swipe to see the back)
  • I can’t wait to see the comments for the rest of the year...yesterday was day 1 of my Morning Check-In and this comment was fantastic!
  • Part 1 of 2 math center storage boxes ✅ I’ll thank myself next year 😂
  • Birthday pillow 2 of 25 ✅. (Although with co-teaching & having a para in the room...I may have to up my number!) #TheyAreMyKidsToo #teacherlife #studentbirthday
  • Birthday pillow #1 (of 25) for the 19-20 school year. It’s only the third day of school tomorrow so I went off of the student information form that he filled out Day 1. He seems to like science (he wrote about it at least 3 times). I hope he’ll enjoy this for years to come. #mykidstoo #birthdayreadingpillow
  • Impressed myself & my group today with our “begin with the end in mind” activity. Swipe to see how close my drawing is to the presenter’s. 😳 My brain shut off shortly after. 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • One thing I will probably never do again: ruffles bulletin board borders. I got the idea when someone posted how easy it was...that they just bunched & stapled. Of course, I thought “oh, I know how to create ruffles in fabric with sewing. That would be fast, look better than randomly stapling, AND they’d be reusable.” AND by choosing grey background fabric, i can update JUST the border every year to relate it to our school theme. What I didn’t think about: finishing the edges (or else they’d fray. Instead of hemming, I chose to use the serpentine stitch. Each strip (width of fabric) took 5 minutes of time AT THE MACHINE going full blast to zig zag the sides and straight stitch the middle. 😳 (plus the bunching part and then stapling). I have 2 bulletin boards with at least 15 strips of fabric. In the 5 min it took to sew one strip, I coulda hung the whole bulletin board with regular bulletin board border. 🤦🏼‍♀️ BUT this one is unique and I will enjoy all year!
