|Sept. 2010 - Ben & Jo's first day of pre school & Dan's first day of 4th grade. *sniff* Where does the time go?!|
|The picture on the L is from our 2011/2112 year & the one on the R is from the 2012/2013.|
Both photos were taken mid year.
In 2011, I chose a Monster theme. It was fun, bold & silly - perfect for Kindergarten! Even Dan Jr. liked it!
In 2012, Jo & Ben were learning to read, so I chose a Seuss theme & added a lot of extra posters that were relevant to Dan Jr.'s studies. It was a good compromise, but ended up being a bit distracting after a while.
For some reason, this year I wasn't feelin' the whole "loud" thing. I went for a much more simple, streamlined look. It's a bit of a change, but we all really love it!
I went with a theme from Creative Teaching Press called "Riveting Robots". Super cute.
It was, by far, the easiest bulletin board I've ever punched out! None of the pieces tore & it looks so clean!
|I love everything about this set! The colors and fonts are so fun! It makes me happy.|
All I will have to do is re-arrange the numbers each month. Super easy & no hassle.
|I later took the pieces in this part of the set to Staples and had them laminated. They will be moved around almost every day, so I wanted to make sure they lasted the whole year.|
Oh! Everyone in the family is somewhere on the board. That's been a tradition since moving here. Aren't we cute?! lol
Here's the board in use. I'm still waiting on the other trimmer set and I have to laminate the robot so I can write on it, but for now, it's finished & I'm quite happy with it.
I really, really, really, love my job.
