Moving in to a new classroom can be a blessing. I had the opportunity to go through all of my materials as I was packing my old classroom and decide, do I really need this? I am the queen of getting rid of things (my husband can agree to this statement) but moving out of my classroom gave me the chance to decide; donate, trash, keep or refurbish. Sometimes in my quest to live simply I give away things that could be useful to me. I am trying to find a balance and so I decided to take on a couple of projects this summer that will allow me to use the materials I already have in my new space.
I want my kindergarten classroom to be organized and purposeful. I know that kinders can be messy- so I want to make sure that I model organization. I have a few projects in mind (I will blog about them-don't worry :) ) that will help me with that- but first I had to go to Hobby Lobby! I have heard people talk about Hobby Lobby but I just thought it was a Hobby Shop- you know, the kind with model cars and plane kits?! I spent over 2 hours just roaming the aisles! A ton of things were on sale and I filled my cart! Eventually I went through and picked out just the things I knew that I would be using and figured if I need to go back to Hobby Lobby to pick up a few more things- oh well!
Here is what I bought:
I also picked up some cute woodland animal stickers- not sure what I will use them for yet but I will find a place for them! Some foam pads to spruce up my crate seats from last year and a "warm and fuzzies" bucket/pom poms that I will use for class meetings.
Well, there is my loot! Look for more posts once I get crafting! :)
