Freebie, Sale, and Classroom Pics!!! - Queen of the First Grade Jungle

Freebie, Sale, and Classroom Pics!!!

A couple of years ago we were asked to designate a spot for student work in the hallway. We save these spots for Extended Responses or especially impressive writing assignments. 

If you want to try this project out...head to Hobby Lobby (my personal little heaven) and grab foam, mini-clips, and ribbon! 

On the first day of school I will take pictures of my students to add to the display, but for right now, this is what is right outside my classroom. The mini clips allow for easy posting too!  If you would like the Wonderful Work Coming Soon sign, click on the link to go to my TPT store. 

After my student list is 100 % finalized I will add the letter sticker for their names.  

Last year Abby suggested taping together 3 white foam boards to create a large sign and Ta-Da! I love it!

Since everyone is busy setting up their classrooms I decided to put all my alphabet sets and classroom decor on sale for 20% off tomorrow (July 25th) only!

  1. ugh...we totally don't have bulletin boards in our hallways - and I soooooo have been begging for them!! just a cork strip - bleh! I wonder if I can like "make" my own - wonder what I could get everything to stay up with so I can do this "everyone has their own spot to hang work"

    1. We have the same cork strips... I laminate a large piece of construction paper for each student and hot glue 2 clothespins at the top. Then, I staple the construction paper to the cork strip. The switching of papers is still easy since the clothespins are there. You can even hang their names above their paper.

  2. The foam sign is a great idea! I've been looking for ideas to display work & this is great! Thanks for sharing Katie! :)

  3. I love this idea! I'm doing something similar in my classroom :-)

    Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!

  4. I LOVE it! Seeing all of the classroom pictures is making me actually want to get back in there---and I still have till after Labor Day when my kiddos start! (and me the week before)
    Thanks for sharing!

  5. I love this display!! Thanks for the freebie!!

  9. I am soo using this idea! (all black white and yellow of course)

  10. I need to try and replicate your use of clothing pins to hang student work. I HATE dealing with staples when it's time to take things down and put new stuff up!! Everything looks neat but more importantly FUN Katie!!

  12. Hey Katie quick question for ya. Your student display spots with the ribbons and the mini clips-- are those just glued onto colored card stock?

  13. Do you still have this sign in your TPT store? I couldn't find it.

  14. Shockingly, for some individuals there is, and that is too terrible. In any case, that is pride or basic pomposity, take your pick. On the off chance that the janitor was taking home a heavy paycheck that would beyond any doubt make an adjustment in state of mind. cash advance san-diego
