Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!
When I saw this idea, I knew I wanted to implement it for Teacher Appreciation Week.
First I printed out a large letter of the teacher's initial. I also printed her name next to it. The large "J" was printed very lightly so that it wouldn't be seen.
Next, I lined up my crayons in the order that I was going to use them.
On a scratch sheet of paper, I marked the length of my cut and started chopping away.
I glued the crayons right onto the paper.
Then I framed it.
I really like the way it turned out.
The glass that is normally in the front of the frame was removed and placed in the back. Also, in the back, I added a picture and wrote, "Thanks for making 2nd grade so colorful."
One done, another to go.
The letter A was much more difficult and time consuming, but it turned out pretty good.
I simply love the way they look. I may use the idea in the boys' room, but on a larger scale.
One day down, 4 more to go! Stay tuned for a full week of Teacher Appreciation ideas!
