When I do a theme, I like to go all out.
My principal walked in the other day when I was putting up my bulletin board material and was admiring my theme! (It fits her perfectly too since she is a former barrel racer from what I hear!)
Anyway, I joked with her about the possibility of me getting a class pet, to which she said, " Sure, what are you thinking of getting?"
"A steer!" .....the look on her face was priceless!
She didn't miss a beat and said, " Sure, it'll teach the kids responsibility !"
ANYWHO, I decided there were a few anchor posters I was going to have to create on my own!
I found a CUTE poster about good fit books (using the acronym COW....how clever is that?) on pinterest, and when I clicked on the link it took me to Amanda over at One Extra Degree-- LOVE her blog! She had been inspired by Christina Bainbridge at Bunting, Books and Bainbridge!!! I added my own fonts and borders, changed a few things around and inserted my own clipart to customize it to fit my classroom! So now, I have my Stamina and Good Fit Book posters!!!
Feeling like I'm making a bit of progress here...things are slowly coming off my checklist!!!
