Getting To the Core of the Matter...
Teachers love having their name on their stuff. If you don't go to the effort things tend to disappear-right? I bet I've lost a book or two but oh well. Anyhow, I just got back from Vegas and now I am packing up again to head for Palm Springs for a common core training. So I needed to pump myself up for this and I decided to do it by getting into a crafty mood. The cover for my binder is no biggy but I run it on photo paper so the color is gorgeous. Now here is where I lost my mind. I decided to personalize my paper and add some cute graphics. How cute is this? I just ran it through the printer and changed out the design a few times. Nothing to it! Finally, I made my own notepad which I think is adorable. It is so simple to do. Now I can face the week with all my new stuff. I never got over the whole school supply obsession. What do you do to personalize your classroom stuff. We all do labels and lots of bloggers offer them up as freebies!
Deanna Jump does the most amazing job of this in her classroom. She presented a workshop on Organization and Ijust want her to come to stay with me for a week and straighten me out. She is a powerhouse at this!
I will go through the steps to make a notepad soon. HAPPY SUNDAY!
