Calling all boards!!

It is time to build our trifold boards!!  2nd has already started, but I need my other grade levels to bring in the following by Monday.
 
3rd:  small trifold is perfect.  There is more on the table than on the board.
4th:  LARGE board.  48 X 36 is perfect
5th:  Large board also   48 X 36
 
Thank you for always being so willing to help us with these boards!  My room is a WRECK during this time, but it shows how hard they are working!  This is my favorite time of year...when they put it all together and get the chance to show it to others.   They are so proud, and that makes me proud!  I love my job!!

2nd Grade GT: It is board time!

We have finished with our projects and we are ready to put them on the trifold boards.  Each student needs to bring in a Trifold board to display their work on.  The best size for this project would be a 48 in x 36 in trifold board.  I can't wait for you to see what they have created for their parties!

Help!

Several of you always say to let you know if I need help!  I need help!  I need someone to come in and make some giant letters for me.  I want to use them in our makerspace, but I need to get them made first.  I have all the materials, and can get you started, but I don't have the time to make them. I can also use someone to help with the labels on my computers.  ANY TAKERS??
