Back to School

Most schools are already underway and I would be lying if I said I didn’t miss my classroom!  Getting my classroom ready was one of my favorite things!  Thankfully, I had a few banners that I put together for some of my teacher friends to keep me busy.  When I cleaned out my classroom, I put all of my bulletin board banners in the lounge.  I sent an email out letting everyone know that they were up for grabs.  I will never forget Mrs. White running down the hall saying, “Why didn’t you ask me first?!  I want those banners!”  She has incorporated all of the banners in her classroom this year and asked if I could make a couple more for her.

She is getting married next month, so she needed a sweet banner with her name.  I did chevron with primary colors because that is her room theme.

Cubs Cash is an incentive for good behavior in the building, I even made a Cub look like he was holding some Cubs Cash!  I embossed these pennants with polka dots since she has polka dots in her classroom as well.  I thought this one turned out so cute!

Mrs. Heather was another one of my teacher friends that wanted me to help her with her room.  She sent me a pin with a theme that she liked.  It was so cute with little silhouettes of children all over the room.  Since the theme of the school was animals, we decided it would be fun to do silhouettes of animals instead.  Since she is teaching Kindergarten this year, we did farm animals!  (The pig is my favorite!)

This is the bulletin in front of her classroom.  I cut out different animals and she glued clothespins to the back for easy hanging without holes!

We spiced up her Word Wall with a banner as well.  I like that the banners could be hung above for more bulletin space!

This is one of my favorite creations for her room!  This banner is the perfect way to help the kids learn their colors!  I love that it reminds me of crayons!

I definitely had fun whipping up some school banners for my teacher friends!  I also wanted to share a banner that I made for first and last day school pictures.  I was contacted by a girl from my hometown that had a little girl getting ready to start preschool.  She had seen my posts on Facebook and wanted a banner that she could hold in the pictures.  I was excited because this was a banner that I was already brainstorming, but she gave me a reason to whip it up!  The banner comes with two sided pennants with all grade levels so you can use it for multiple kids and all the way through school!  To purchase this banner check out my listing on Etsy!

I also edited this banner to say Pre-K for a friend of mine.  Remember these banners can be customized to your needs!

The pennants are double sided for easy assembly.  Simply slide it off and flip it over!

That is all for today!  If you are in need of any banners for your classroom or your child’s teacher, let me know!
