Day Three: An Echo Park Classroom

Well, if I was being completely honest, today is actually Day Four...
but I am blogging about Day Three.

I HATE laminating day, it just means you have to
re-cut everything out hand.
SOME of our {finished} laminating. 

I started cutting while Season continued to work on the cricut.
Eventually, my hands started to get a bit achy, so I switched and concentrated on
getting a bulletin board {at least one} completed...which I did.

'Treasure Hunt' will be a collection of students' outstanding work,
school assignments that really shine throughout the week will
be mounted under the corresponding subject.

{Treasure Hunt-  Close-Ups of Headings}

After that was done, I decided to complete the name tags for the students desk.
Using Echo Park's 'Splash' Collection {of course}and the Cricut
Cartridge 'Life's A Beach', we cut out tags for every student.  
Then I put their names on each one using the Alpha Stickers from 'Splash'.

After that we went back to Sea's house and got back to cutting...
Most of it is done...and ready to put up.
I am excited to see everything come together.
Great Days, 

{PS- Tomorrow is the kid's charity Lemonade Stand
{for the United Way's Back to School Supplies Drive},
so today we are taking a little time off from
school work and concentrating on Baking.
Wish us Luck!


  1. Wow, what a lot of work!!! Lovely, lovely, can't wait to see the finished boards!

  2. Loving this classroom coming together right before our eyes. I think if there was a contest for the best classroom you guys would win - hands down.
    Back to baking, see you tomorrow.
    ps - yes, you can borrow my camera. luv, Ma

  3. Lucky sister and lucky kids to have such a pretty, well-designed classroom. Wow, that is a lot of trimming of laminate!

  4. WOW. I'm a middle school teacher and although I have a theme for my room (SpongeBob), it is nowhere NEAR as nice as your sister's classroom will be!
    Judging a book by its cover, I think your sister loves her job and loves her students. And I think you love your sister.
    Thanks for sharing and for inspiring!

    ReplyDelete apologies for the WORD VERIFICATION...I have been getting A LOT of SPAM lately...
