| April 24 - Classroom Decoration
Decorating your doll classroom is very fun - and easy sometimes, too! I love pretending I'm a teacher, teaching all my students, but sometimes teaching can be hard - even a play teacher is hard work! It's easy, though, to get organized. This craft is an easy and fun way to get your class where they ned to go!
First, I gathered all my materials and supplies for the project - Velcro-straps, tape/glue, scissors, and ribbon. You can get almost all of these items at a craft store!
Then, I went to my computer (if you don't have a printer, ask a parent to take you to your local library - some libraries have desk-top computers with printers! If not, you could write it on a blank sheet of paper.) and typed up 5 subjects; art, library, computer lab, music, and phys. ed. (gym). I also added recess and bathroom, too. I printed them out, cut them out, and went back online and printed a circle that said "We are Here" in big lettering. I printed and cutted the circle out, too.
After the cutting, I colored in the subjects and the circle in different colors, so the decoration will be easy to see. Some examples are hot pink, light blue, neon colors, orange, yellow, eg.
After coloring, I pasted the colored subjects onto theleft hand side of the consturction paper and pressed down, making sure they are secure. You could make them angled, straight down, patterened - any way you prefer.
I placed down the soft side of the Velcro straps on the right hand side of the construction paper, right across from the subjects and pressed down, checking if they are secure. I put one rough-sided Velcro strap on the opposite side of the "We are Here" Circle. Then, I taped ribbon to the back of the construction paper, like a hook, and viola - a door hanger!
Hang your project on the door of your classroom and remind students where you are going. If they are lost, tell them to just go back to the classroom to see where the class is!
Have fun! :)
