There has been so much going on in my life this week that I don’t know where to start!
Hurricane Isaac came and went but my household didn’t have power for four days so I couldn’t write a post. My family did, however, have plenty of time for board games, play dough, chalk board and dry erase board writing, reading, coloring, tracing, hide and seek, building towers, playing house, trains and trucks, indoor soccer, and several other rainy-day activities in our PJ’s. But, the fun really kicked in when we stayed at “Nonna”s on the third night. >>>>
But, the biggest news right now is that I accepted a teaching position to teach Kindergarten at the school across the street from my house. Some people have asked me if that means that I won’t be posting on TMT (the mommy teacher) anymore, but that is not the case! 😉 I will be trying to post at least once, if not up to three times a week so don’t stop visiting or spreading the word about TMT !
My first share is my BEfORE pic of my classroom that needs A LOT of love….
My first step was to cover those dreary blinds and the cheapest alternative (on my budget) was DIY curtains made from plastic table covers…
Other than being an affordable curtain solution, they are easily replaceable if they are damaged and they add plenty of color! I used colored paper clips to hang them on the top blind… (matching the color of the curtain to the clip to camouflage it and it worked. Just $12 and I don’t have to look at the wall of blinds anymore. If I had a smaller space, I would have bought table cloths from target and turned them into curtains…
But, covering 5 huge panels like that wouldn’t have achieved the affordable goal I was going for!
Anyway, I will be posting activities and learning experiences soon….this past week was just CRAZY! Hope yours was great 🙂
