Back to School Summer Projects/Michael's Stores 'Create 2 Educate' Contest

Hi all! It's been such a busy first few weeks of school as the beginning of the year always is?!! I wanted to share some projects I worked on over the summer for my classroom for the 2014-15 school year. I entered all of my projects into the Michael's Stores 'Create 2 Educate' contest and almost ALL of my projects were asked for permission to be used on their site! YAY! That was so exciting!! I worked on the projects throughout the summer and here is a peek of what they look like! I will try to post more pics soon for my 2014-15 classroom reveal which will show how they are being used!

I made this frame for the first day of school!

Here are some pictures on the process of creating this frame.
I hand-painted everything except for the apple!

Here are some options I played around with before I chose the actual layout of the words.

Here are my new 'trash' bins for my students to use at their tables
when they are cutting or working on projects.
I also made a 'headphones' bin for my listening center.

I made these Crayola supply holders to hold my Sharpies and highlighters.

Not sure what I'm using these little bins for but I couldn't pass on making them!

My new 'Goals' board! I will set goals throughout the year.
The pencils will be a reward my students will have to earn when meeting our first goal!

Last but not least, what turned out to be my favorite project!
My new pencil holders made from mason jars!
