Well, it's that time of year again---thinking about Back to School. I have to get into my classroom within the next week..or knowing me, it won't get done. I tend to talk on those teacher "work days"---and not really "WORK." What can I say---I love to socialize! :) Okay, that's beside the point.....Five years ago I started doing themes in my room. I've had Bears, Stars, Monkeys (LOVE the Trend Monkey Mischief), and the past two years we had a school wide theme around sports. This year, our school wide theme is Learning is an Adventure----so I get to save a little money, and reuse my monkeys!! YAY!! I thought what about a SAFARI??? I played around with clip art today on PowerPoint...believe it or not, I've never really messed with PowerPoint.....so forgive my Welcome Sign. My little inside border doesn't line up the greatest---but ahh, if I mount it on a piece of heavy brown cardboard, maybe cut it to make it look a little jagged around the edges, it may not look so shabby. While making the Welcome Sign, I was thinking about a little back to school treat incorporating animals. The kids will need a snack after those long summer month, and animal crackers are a great choice. I will bag a handful up, and add this to the bags. Enjoy!
