Board Crush!

I am SO grateful for all of the amazing ideas out there in the teacher world!! I am visual. So, following teachers on Instagram is like the best thing ever.  And oh my word...the bulletin boards.  There's just not enough wall space for the number of perfectly precious displays out there! 

At the beginning of the year there are so many wonderful ideas for back to school.  The challenge for me...how do I do them ALL and still match our campus theme.  This year, we decided that our campus theme would be Walker Tribe...black and gold with arrows! I was sold! 

But wait what...did you SEE the sets put out by Michell Griffo from Apples & ABCs this year. I had serious Board-Crush!!  I was so inspired that I had to figure out a way to make them fit our theme. With a few tweaks, I had the hallways all set.  

The Inspiration...(Board-Crush!)

The Result!

Another Beautiful Board...

...In Black & Gold!

I am so happy with how they turned out and I still get that little smirk that you get when you pass your crush, each time I see them in the hallway! 

Board Bonus: I also set up this little photo background during Back to School.

Work Hard, Play Hard, & Be Kind

Happy summertime teacher friends!!! I hope you had a fabulous school year.  I'm so giggly to be able to share a new freebie with you.  But first a little backstory...

Like many campuses, every year my school selects a building theme.  This past year we chose a game theme and our slogan was "Work Hard, Play Hard, & Be Kind!" 

Our team does a wonderful job decorating and our students always love coming back to see what we've done with the building.  The foyer was decorated to match our theme announcement and each grade level hallway decorated in a specific game!

Now the goodies...
I love, love, love the way our staff works together.  We have an awesome rapport!  One tradition that we implement, every year, is Affirmation Bags.  Each staff member has a bag that we place in the lounge or bring to faculty meetings to be filled with kind notes from other staff members.  It's amazing.  Somehow you always seem to have your "bucket filled" with just the right note on just the right day! Of course our affirmation bag has to match our theme for the year.  Check out our game themed bags that I made this year!

Striped bags from Amazon.

 I just love the way they turned out!
