Three New Bulletin Boards

I’m playing school age teacher for the rest of the summer. Our school age teacher quit. So, I moved up front and I’m trying to get some semblance of control in that room. The first thing I talked to them about was not wanting rules, but rather guidelines. And that I thought one of the…

It’s International Cat. Actually, here in the Marks house, everyday is International Cat Day. Everyone knows that cats rule the world. We humans are here only to serve our feline overlords.

The Golden Hour

It seems that I’ve taken quite a few pictures of sunsets. Yes, sunsets only. I’m rarely cognizant enough to take pictures of the sunrise. That’s something I should rectify at some point in time.

Summer Bulletin Board

I recently finished the summer bulletin board in my classroom. As usual, the babies painted. My theme was summer. The saying I chose was “Summer Is Flip Flopping Fun”. I did things you’d find during summertime, including flip flops with the babies’ footprints on them. I found this neat foil cardstock at the craft store…
