Guest Post-Mrs. Wheeler & a Craft Freebie!!



Hello friends of Miss Kindergarten! My name is Megan Wheeler and I am a first grade teacher and blogger over at Mrs. Wheeler’s First Grade.  I have been blogging for a little over two years and I love it! It consumes way too much of my time!!  If you’d like to learn a little more about me, click here!  I am pumped that Hadar has let me do a guest post for her awesome blog!!

Now we all know that Hadar is a crafting maniac, so naturally when she agreed to let me guest post, I had to give you guys a crafty idea!!!!  So here we go…..I like to display exemplary work so the class has a visual reminder to do their best.  I created these frames this summer as my display:




I bought 3 unfinished frames from Big Lots (around $6 ea) and spray painted them to match my classroom.  I applied about 3 coats of paint.  Once dry, I added some embellishments (ribbons, buttons, etc).  I hung them on the wall with Command wall mounts.  I hung the phrase “Picture Perfect Work” with cutout letters above.  Each week or so, I change the work inside and make a big deal to the class.  Students who have their work showcased get a certificate.  Please visit my tpt store to grab a copy for free!! Please become a follower of my store while you are there!
Well, that’s all for now, my new friends! If you liked what you read, please head over to my blog, www.mrswheelerfirst.blogspot.com, take a look around, and become a follower! There are lots of freebies! See you there!
