Pinterest idea crafts

After finding Pinterest this summer I made a couple things for my room.  Here are my beautiful creations:

I loved this idea of the flower pencils.  I was always loaning out pencils and they would not return to me.  This has worked great!  We’ve been in school for 4 weeks now and I still have all my pencils and I can quickly see who needs new supplies (already).
The happy birthday balloons were all over proteacher this summer.  I wasn’t thrilled with the idea of using pixie sticks so I bought glow sticks at the Dollar Store.  They turned out great and the students can’t wait for their birthday to get one. I got the container from the dollar section at Target.
I also wanted some benches for my library area that could also hold books.  I found these at IKEA and I found the fabric at Walmart and made these cushions to match my polka dot room.

First try at posting

Here are some tent cards I made to display in front of my student's favorite books in our library area.  I printed these on card stock and then laminated them.  They work great.  Enjoy.
