So begins the breaking down of my room. A monstrous task, but at least I have some willing helpers. We just got the ok from my principal to take down student work outside & put up a "summer" themed bulletin board. I chose a countdown theme, and also one that reminded my "eager" kiddos that school is still in session. I found the original idea on pinterest.
"Stay on Target, There's still ___ days left of school!"
Easy Peasy. Cover your board (I *might* be using the same background that's been up since January--does blue glitter ever get old?!) Put up a border, I chose this red chevron I found at
Lakeshore, I found it online at Really Good Stuff (click the pic.) You'll also need a target. If you don't have one sitting around (who doesn't?!) Here's some simple instructions: all I did was trace a bowl on red butcher paper to start with, cut it out. Then, I glued it to white butcher paper, and traced a circle that followed the same outline about 4 inches all the way around. Cut that out, and glued it to a red piece of butcher paper, repeat the process a few times (alternating red & white), and .......VIOLA! Target.
To make the arrow, I just cut a triangle out of foil, and twisted some black paper for the straight part. I stapled some "Fringe" cut out of paper to the top, BAM....easy arrow.
The last, is the countdown. 2 sets of squares with numbers on them. I stapled them in correct number order, AND THEN stapled that bunch to the wall. That way, I send a kid to tear a number off each morning.
That's it! Insta-board.
