National Craft Month

Did you know that March is National Craft Month? I sure didn't. I am teaming up with Lakeshore Learning, my favorite teacher store, to show you what I did with their 3-way easel.

As you know, I am a first grade teacher. This 3-way easel has been such a life saver during this Polar Vortex in Chicago. My little nuggets haven't been outside for recess since before Thanksgiving! Poor things. I am very resourceful with ideas for them but I was running out of options.

Once I UN-boxed this fine quality beauty they were fighting over it. Then, of course, I had to make them earn it. They have been trying to earn fuzzies like crazy to be able to use this during indoor recess! They love to actually be able to use chalk! They are used to sidewalk chalk & don't really get to use a chalkboard in today's world. THEY LOVE IT! It's like giving them finger paints or play-doh! On the other side is a dry-erase board. They love this as well since they aren't allowed to use our big classroom dry erase board during indoor recess...long story.

So here is what I came up with............

I always do holiday photos & I like to change it up from year to year when I have siblings. These pics turned out so cute! The easel comes with the blue clips so this photo shoot idea was perfect. I also have something up my sleeve for Mother's Day as well!
