Bug of the Week and More Classroom Photos

In kindergarten at my school, everyone does star of the week. I decided to do "Bug of the Week" to go with my theme.

Here is the bulletin board I made for it:

As you can see in the picture below, I will put pictures from each of the students on paperclips that are already on the flowers on my board. It makes for a very easy change out! 

Here is the paper I send home with the student before their week:

Bug of the Week -

I also created this bulletin board for our "Bee Rules". I plan to make the binder as well! Be sure you click the links to check out the original post by Sarah at First Grader... at Last.
I made the banner using my Cricut machine.

I saw an adorable project on Pinterest. They made yarn balloons that sort of looked like lanterns. Well, I bought the yarn, glue, balloons, and tried twice... but I failed miserably! I guess some projects just aren't meant to be!

So... instead I sent my hubby to Hobby Lobby to get these paper lanterns. You get three for $7.99! Look how I used them for decoration and for table colors:

I think it's so fun! I plan to hang the word of the week from the paperclips so the students can have it right at their tables. (Yes... once the tables arrive I will have them instead of desks!)

Hope you have a wonderful week!

I've been looking all over for turquoise lanterns - wish we had Hobby Lobby.
We give a monthly "BUG" award at our student assemblies for most improved students - "Bringing Up Grades".
