Random Ramblings...

We are finally able to get into our classrooms this week.  I have been looking forward to this all summer!  Oh boy!   I must have forgotten that I left it looking like this...

Before having a mini panic attack I quickly hung up my new fabulous fabric banner (very simple to make) and displayed my new fancy framed print on my desk . 
I am obsessed with this print so I decided to add my own personal touch (polka dots of course) and make it my teaching mantra!  Love it!  I think this is going to be a great year. 

Ps- My Bestie and I are doing our first giveaway (100 followers Yay!) so head over to First Grade Glitter and Giggles for the details. 
Toodles!

I really like the banner you made. How did you do it?

Ms. Durbin said...

Thanks Ashley! I found a tutorial for the banner on The Inspired Apple blog.

I love the banner... I'll have to check out the tutorial! I also love the mantra. That is truly something we can all relate to and keep in mind. I am afraid to go into my room because of how I had to leave it. I still have a few weeks too!

Really creative fabric banner! I am liking everything I am seeing so far (your resources are lovely, too!). I am a new follower and new to Blogspot (though not new to blogging!).

Looks like we share the same color scheme and mantra!!! Love the banner. I'm doing my room in similar colors. I also bought a "keep calm and carry on" key chain. This is my new mantra at home and school!!

Thanks for the comment on my story map posters. Headers for the posters can be found here: http://mrsrojasteaches.blogspot.com/2011/07/few-updates.html
