I stole this idea!

So have I mentioned lately, that I love Pinterest? I have found some amazing lesson ideas, and this is one of them that I have very cheerfully "borrowed". My 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders worked on monochromatic self-portraits the last 2 weeks. They were assigned to use the "color" of their table (each of the tables in my room is assigned a color, so that I can call specific tables to line up, get their supplies, etc). I have a red, blue, yellow, green, orange, turquoise and a pink/purple table (the basket on the table is one of those colors that could be either pink or purple, I insist on calling it purple, since I detest the color pink, the kids call it pink, just to spite me I think! :P ). Anyways... once the students were done, they placed their papers into basket that were labeled with the colors, this saved me from pulling each class and having to separate them. I hung them up in the hallway today, what do you think?

HAHA! I have a post that I am working on that is titled, "I'm A Thief!" I have stolen so many ideas this year! One of them is yours- the decoration on your door. Hopefully, I can post mine tomorrow- Blogger is taking soooo long to load photos.

That's hysterical! I think all art teachers are thieves in this way, and we should be proud of it! I want to see pictures of what you did with the door decoration!

This is Leann by the way. I too think I may have stolen quite a few of your ideas. I know I stole a quote from the hallway. It's now my door decor. :)
