Monday Made It: A Peek in My Classroom

Last summer, I was all over the Monday Made Its... This summer, not so much. In fact, this is the first one I'm participating in and my summer's pretty much over. I've still been enjoying checking out other people's awesome creations.

This year it was decided we would have a building-wide theme: jungle safari. I suppose, by the looks of it, I'm focusing more on the jungle part of it. I took down my valence curtains and hung these huge leaves instead. The dark green leaves are from poster board and the lighter green leaves are bulletin board paper. Then I added twine to make a vine.

Hallway windows
I absolutely love my leaves and vines!


I even love the way it looks peeking in my classroom from the hallway. 
I just stop and look sometimes because I love it so much. 
I've also spent some time over this last week labeling like crazy in my classroom. These are the Sterilite mini 3-drawers. I love the way they look now. So much easier to read than the tiny labels I had before. I can even read them across the room.


Finally, I want to leave you with a little smile. I hope you have a great week! I know I will... this week, my mom and I are spending some serious mother-daughter time before I go back to school on the 6th. Lookin' forward to it!

  1. Your leaves are GREAT--and I love the look from the outside too! I stopped by school the other day and made a list of all the things I need to label as well. It's overwhelming! I love the size of yours...you got a lot accomplished!

  2. Oh the leaves are fabulous! We do a huge rainforest research project mid-year that I may need to deck our space with these leaves for now. Excellent work!
