So, the idea?? Well, we all know how important it is for the kids to know their goals for the day. The problem has been posting these in a way that students and administration can walk in and know what is going on during the day! So the idea that was posted used picture frames as wipe off boards for the "I Can" Goals. The original post actually described getting 8x10 picture frames from Michaels for $1.50, but I went there today and didn't want to spend $10 per frame, but I did find these and they were only $7 on clearance!! The awesome thing is that they can be posted to a bulletin board using push pins or mounted by the magnetic strips already attached to the back!
Here is the original idea that had me inspired...don't they look lovely?
Ok...so here is what I found at Michaels for $7!!! It came in a pack of ten!
|Here is a view of the package - Multi-Purpose Acrylic Magnet Frames|
|You can see the magnetic strips on the back - they are heavy duty!! Perfect for a chalkboard!|
Ok...so here is what they might look like when I finish them all....my printer needs some adjusting for sure, but this is what I have. If you are looking for the copy from the original author (Michelle at My Own Twist On Things), you can download the form here. I'm so glad that she shared with everyone!! Go to her website to see the step by step!! I just wanted to share how excited I was about her idea!!
I've only shown you the first four that I have made, but there is one for every subject. The nice thing about the cases that I have bought, is it is very easy to take a page in and out, so if you didn't have science every day, you would just pop it in on the days that you do!!
|Sorry about the flash!! These are only four - there are more!!|
Thanks again Michelle! Maybe if I do a project a day, I will be ready for September and all I will have to do is put this stuff up! Stay tuned for my next project!
