I've been fussing over this daunting list of things to do before the children show up on Wednesday, not to mention all the things that really must find themselves done around my house. You know the feeling. I did manage to accomplish quite a few projects, minus the grocery shopping and trimming the hedges of many small villages. (Sorry, only "The Three Amigos" fans will appreciate that one.) I might have gotten to those things if I hadn't spent my Sunday afternoon and evening drawing, cutting, glueing, and Mod Podging this.
(The colors look better in person.)
Even though I could have spent my time doing a truckload of other things, I couldn't put this project down. It's so important to my classroom, since it's my one and only rule. (Read here if you'd like to know more about my rule.) I've been on a signage kick this summer (see here), and I just couldn't resist revamping one more thing before school starts. Thanks Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for a summer of creativity.
