Back to school is upon us here in Alberta.  I have already paid a visit to my classroom this summer, despite our official work days starting at the end of the week.  I have a lot to do before the kids come on the 5th, so I thought I would give you a sneak peek of some of the things I’m working on!

I just purchased a Cricut earlier this year to help with wedding decor and decided to give vinyl a try in my classroom. Now I have never been the type of person to ease into a new skill. I like to jump in with both feet.  So this could end in disaster.  Thankfully, YouTube has provided me with many gurus, so I think I will be okay.

Since I teach Science, I decided to spell my name using the Periodic Table. These were SO easy to create!  All I had to do was make a square, cut a smaller square from it, and then add the text.  There is a website that will convert any word you want into elements from the Periodic Table. Check out Periodic Table Writer to get your own name! I chose to do each a different colour because my classroom colour scheme is rainbows.

I also wanted to add some flair to my whiteboards, so I thought I would start with labels for each homework section (our classes are named by grade and then A-F). Nothing fancy, but much better than worrying about them getting erased all the time.  And I thought I would add announcements because I have an extra box…I have a feeling it is going to be MUCH too big….

So that’s it for today, but you should follow me on Instagram @mmekristenfrost to see how everything turns out!  I’ll be back in a couple days with pictures of my bulletin boards!
