August Pinterest Pick 3

This month's Pinterest Pick 3 will be things you can use in your classroom during the month of August. I have recently given my classroom a makeover using mostly ideas found from Pinterest. Since most of you are probably getting ready to spruce up your rooms for back to school, I'm going to share three of my favorite ideas.

The first I chose is a bulletin board idea.

I loved the bright colors and had to copy this. I made one for my ELA vocabulary and one for math vocabulary.

 I also used this idea on my big board out in the hallway for displaying student work.

The next idea I used for my new classroom was for my word wall. I saw this display and loved it. I got my ribbon at Hobby Lobby and downloaded the letters from Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits fan freebies on her facebook page. She had them as large letters and I just printed multiple to a page to make the smaller to fit my board.

Here is what mine looks like.

This Pin taught me how to recover my glider cushion. You do have to do some sewing for this one but it was super easy!

My glider cushion was dark brown which did not go with my new chalkboard bright theme at all, so something had to be done. This is how it turned out and I loved it.
