First, the "Ha-Ha." One of the things that makes me laugh the most is when one of the kids sees something with their unobstructed, five-year-old view of the world and then says something so completely unfiltered and true. For example... Last weekend I got my hair colored (a few too many grays have been popping up lately!) and cut, but it was really just a trim and barely noticeable. One of the girls in my class noticed the change however and asked me if I had gotten a haircut. Pretty impressed with her observational skills, I told her that yes, I had. After a sweet compliment from her, one of the boys (who is super literal, btw) standing nearby chimed in, "You did?" He looked and looked at me, trying to see a difference then said, "What did you do, just cut out the white ones?" I was rolling on the floor! Note to self - don't go so long before heading to the salon next time!
Now for the "how-to." I promised a little tutorial on how to make the sign I have on my classroom door. (Click here to enter my giveaway if you'd like a chance to win one for your classroom - you have 'til Sunday.)
It's super easy. You can do it in Powerpoint or Notebook software (and probably a bunch of others but these are the ones I know). I started by inserting a shape, a big black circle in the middle of my page. Then, I added a text box with a large font with the word "kindergarten." Just make sure you have the text box formatted as "no fill" and the background will stay transparent.
! All done.
! If you give it a try and have any questions, let me know, I'd be happy to help. I'd love to see a picture when you're done! Happy Creating!
