First stop: Lakeshore Learning where I found these super cute borders and matching accessories. I have 2 square bulletin boards in the front of my new classroom on each side of the white board. Thinking black or red fabric on each board; and to keep both bulletin boards matching.
Onto Walmart where I found this much cheaper apple border with matching accessories. I am thinking of red fabric with the border. I bought 2 of the square buckets and am going to print out labels for sharpened and broken pencils. I know I have seen cute labels floating around blogland. I am definitely more resourceful than creative:) Did I mention these are all in the 88 cents section? I LOVE a good deal!
And finally Kohls! I know I had to go when Jessica at Mrs. Stanford's Class posted that all Skippy Jon Jones hard covered books and stuffed animals are $5.00 and part of the profit goes to Kohl's Cares. Sounds like a win-win to me!
So now I have a question for you! Which boarder-the black and primary apples or the yellow with red and green apples? I would love your opinions!
