If you are a teacher, today we are celebrating you! Hello, it is Jen Evans from Heidi Swapp’s team back to share with you some of my favorite classroom ideas. From one teacher to another, these are a few ways I love to make a classroom feel like home while also staying organized.
One of my favorite ways to celebrate a holiday, classroom theme, or lesson unit is with the Heidi Swapp Lightbox. It is easy to slide the letters in and out. You can even have your students do it!
You will be surprised how the children take pride in coming up with inspirational quotes for the classroom too!
If you need a shelf to place your Lightbox on, check out the unfinished wood section of the store and find this one! Just add a coat of your favorite paint to match your classroom décor!
I love having some of my favorite supplies right next to my desk. This Heidi Swapp Instax Tropical Photo Holder makes a great photo display but also can hang some office or school supplies from it as well! Slide your favorite washi tapes right across the bar too. Just pull the tape right from the roll on the bar.
Use the clips to hang photos or inspirational quotes – or both! Save these free printables and print them as a 4×6. You can also print them with an Instax Share Printer like I did here! Hang and enjoy!
Just paint the board your favorite color and then glue the can to the top with E6000 Adhesive. Just let it dry flat overnight! It’s a great way to keep your supplies close to your desk!
Lastly, I knew I needed something large to hold my collection of Lightbox Inserts. Having them in an organizer really helps keep them sorted and saves me time looking for what I need.
I used this jewelry storage container to store the letters and icons.
It is tiered so it can hold a lot more!
With the icon images easy to see the kids will have a lot of fun finding what they need to decorate the Lightbox!
If you are a teacher, thank you for all that you do to shape the future and for making your classroom a fun creative place to learn!
