End of the Year Awards

End of the Year Awards Ceremony

If you have been a follower of mine for some time, then you know I don't do anything without going ALL OUT. This is the obsessive side of myself and the fact that I love party planning & decorating. 

 End of the Year Awards Ceremony Ideas
 We have a lovely auditorium BUT you can't staple or pin anything ANYWHERE. The left riser rack turned into this fabulous photo backdrop! I had an old black cloth tablecloth that we stapled together & then wrapped the red paper tablecloths around it to resemble a curtain.


The Award Goes To

This photo is blurry....wah! This started as a really ugly brown frame with a crocheted clown picture in it! Seriously...so ugly & super scary! My mom bought it years ago so we could use the frame for something. We popped out the clown pic & burned it. Then we spray painted the frame gold. I already had a black foam board that the hubs cut to fit. And of course I had glittery gold alphabet stickers laying around. Voila! 


End of the Year Awards Ceremony
This year I printed out the awards in color on plain printer paper & then laminated them. I have heard from parents that they keep them & hang them proudly on their bedroom walls. I figured I could help them out by laminating this special keepsake. Last year, I was super low on color ink so I printed them on bright colored Astrobrights paper in black and white. I prefer full color but they look spectacular either way. 
This year I did include all of these implementation ideas + award ceremony props! 
Check out my awards ceremony from last year HERE!

Pumpkin Book Reports & MORE!

Thanks to Jennifer over at Simply Kinder, my class did pumpkin book reports for the first time ever! She has the book reports posted FREE here.

Since I don't have a whole lot of room in my classroom, these were displayed in our library. I had 5 students a day bring in their pumpkins and present their reports. They did an absolutely amazing job!

 If you have been wondering where I have been....well read below.
School and this guy have been keeping me super busy! We basically rescued him. His previous owner was going to take him to the pound because she was moving to a place that didn't accept dogs. Call me crazy but how could you leave this guy? He is absolutely perfect and he completes our fur baby family. We are up to 4 dogs now....yes 4! We are crazy...I know. 


I snapped this pic as I was leaving with my mom today. I wish it would've came out brighter. All 4 dogs are in the window! It was the cutest thing ever! 
Be Bulletin Board
Besides taking care of our new fur baby, I also managed to post this new product, the Be Bulletin Board + Bonus Activity. I included the white background shown above or a chalkboard background. 

I absolutely love walking into our classroom. I hear the kids using these words all the time now. It's a permanent word wall that they utilize daily in their conversations and especially in their writing. Speaking of writing.........
Ultimate Writing Station 2 in action
 If you are a fan of the first Ultimate Writing Station...you will die when you see the new one! My students are testing out my newest pages right now. After I have my own class test all of them out as well as a class in each grade level (K-4), I will post it in my store. I can't wait to release this new unit. It has been a work in progress for well over a year now! Yikes! I work so slow!

 After Fall Break, we will star our handprint calendar. I made a ton of updates for this year! This is such an incredible gift and treasured keepsake for parents. These are my nuggets from last year. I just used butcher paper and washi tape and they were able to wrap their own calendars and even decorated the front.
