Cork Boards

My home project today was to cover some cork boards with fabric.  I’m really diggin some black, yellow and gray!  I think they turned out pretty good.  You wouldn’t believe how many times I burned my fingers!  I finally got smart and used the end of the scissors to press down on the fabric. 


I went in school today to work on my room.  I have had to move rooms this year, first time so I’m not complaining.  Starting from scratch is a scary thing!  I know that I must have ADD/ADHD.  I had so many different projects going on at the same time.  I think my room looked neater when I arrived than when I departed Smile  The last thing I worked on was my large bulletin board.  I just knew I had enough border, and didn’t!  That was a sign that I needed to pack things up and have at it again tomorrow.

Pinterest Projects

I have completed a couple of Pinterest inspired crafts this summer.  I just finished making a pencil with The Writing Process on it.  I was planning on using it similar to my clip chart.  Students start with their clip on Prewriting.  As he/she completes each task they will need to move their clip accordingly until they get to Publish.  I’m a little worried about wear and tear even though I plan on having it laminated.  I’ve had my behavior clip chart for 2 full years and I’m going to have to upgrade it. 

I tweaked this project from something I think I got from Pinterest.  If anyone knows who did it originally, please let me know so that I can give her credit. 


I will also use the table numbers that I posted about previously.  I plan on attaching them to a craft similar to this one:

And finally I love the Daily Five and CAFÉ printables that I found on TPT by Gingersnaps.  I love the colors and it’s a free download SmilePinned Image

Please share any crafts/pins that you have found inspiring.
