A Face Lift & 4 Square


This is the pretty after shot!  After my set of plastic drawers got a lovely face lift.  I saw this wonderful idea on Pinterest.  It came from Kinder Craze.  You need to see her room- so beautiful and colorful.  She has beautified (is that a word?) a lot of her drawers and they look wonderful.



This was before the face lift!  I did not like that look at all!  I like my stuff put away and when possible put away where they cannot be seen.  The drawers pre-face lift only accomplished half of this- the put away part.  Not the hidden part.  So I am in love with the new look- looks cute and all my mess is hidden away!

I have finally gotten all assessments completed and began classes last week.  We are starting out with characters and settings.  Clifford, the Big Red Dog is still a great book, even after all this time!





And these take it a step farther with the activity 4 Square.  It is called 4 square because....there are four squares!  It is an easy and quick way to practice the skill of character, setting, problem and solution.  You don't even need to have it typed.  You can just have the students fold the paper into 4 squares and they are ready to go.  Millions of Cats was the book we used for this one.

  4. The drawers look nice! Clifford is the perfect book to begin comprehension since so many kiddos are familiar with him. What grade(s)did you use the book with?
