Two weeks from tomorrow I have to "officially" go back to work! OMG where has the summer gone??? I'll tell you where mine has gone...to wedding pics, moving, painting, and my daughter. So busy have I been and now I have to focus on my classroom. With that in mind, I went to school today to work and this is the major thing that I accomplished......I redid an old rug that a fellow teacher was throwing away! I knew that with teaching kiinders, I would need to larger rug to use and the last day of school I found a "beauty" in the hallway, destined for the trash. I couldn't bear the thought of that old rug being thrown away (really I am just too cheap to buy a new one!), so I adopted it. I cleaned it up a bit and today I painted blue and green polka dots on it! 24 to be exact :)
Here is the rug before: sorry for the poor quality, I had to use the camera on my phone :/
The white circles are paper plates that I laid out and traced around so that my dots would be in the correct spot.
Here is the rug after:
I am SUPER excited about my rug. I did the polka dots for two reasons:
1) I love polka dots!
2) I am going to use the two colors as management for rug time. Girls will sit on one color and boys will sit on another. Hopefully this way I won't have clusters of boys and girls sitting around the rug. Everyone will have a spot (pun intended) to sit on.
Anyways, so that is my masterpience of the day. Hope you enjoyed! LOL
