Do you have a room with NO view?

Or worse yet, an ugly view?  Well, at my school we have a set of windows in the hallway right outside of my room that have a view to quite possibly the ugliest trailer in the world…it is used as a “closet ” for the janitor and is just horrid to look at every day.  SO…I decided (with the help of a lovely parent volunteer) to cover the windows.  Here are some pictures in case you have a spot that could use some help, all you need is bulletin board paper and trim.  I added rope with tulle at the top (not a good idea if your school is infested with bats…but otherwise a lovely touch =) The green is just cut up crepe paper.  We used shades of blue on the windows because of our ocean theme…but in years’ past I have done rainbow colors instead.

 Another idea is simple, but cute to assign the grade levels n each hallway, I used triangles cut out of construction paper and then cut out letters with bulletin board trim at the top.  Cute, huh?
 And just another random pic of the back of my room…I know some folks say kids shouldn’t be over stimulated by their environment…certainly that isn’t what is going on here…right?? lol


  1. You guys are so lucky you can hang things like that. Our fire marshall won't allow us to do so. As a matter of fact, it is common practice with some administrators to rip things off the walls when they are present just to avoid a write up for the school. Matters not if they keep it in tact! Anyways… your school looks amazing! When I envisioned being a teacher, that was the kind of environment I wanted to create!


  2. Ummm…YEP! My classroom faces a brick wall. I am not even kidding. I'll have to take pictures and post on my blog. I teach in a super old building,(93 years old) and the gym was an addition. My room faces the outside wall of the gym. Every window faces the brick wall. LOL

  3. I love your First grade pendant banner in the hallway! I've seen the pendant banners on Pinterest and added it to my to do list this summer. Well, I was at Hobby Lobby and got a great deal on a scrap-booking paper pack so I started tracing pendants. I was watching a movie while tracing and cutting and now I have tons of pendants! Probably enough to share with my entire grade level of 8 teachers! LOL

    Love your blog and I'm following you now!
