Good News and a Giveaway!

It’s amazing the simple things that we can take for granted as a teacher! Since the tornado, we really haven’t had a copier, and it’s been really hard! All of these center ideas and unit ideas rolling around, and no way to get them over to the kids! Well, we received copiers and risos today!!! YAYAYAY!!! I’m so excited, it’s ridiculous! My principal just laughed when I told her I just wanted to hug it! I was able to make my copies to do the I have a dream mobile, which I do every year. I was so devastated to think that I wouldn’t be able to do it at all.

Speaking of which, I have a slight problem. My old rooms (in 1st and K) were basically the same, just down the hall from each other. I was able to reach the ceiling by standing on a desk to hang them up. This is my 1st grade room in the following picture. 

 Well, this room at the school we are at happens to be slightly different. It is definitely an older building, and I don’t think I can hang my mobiles up. The ceiling is up higher, and it has beams running through it. Also, it is almost like one continuous ceiling tile, they aren’t squares.

See what I mean? So, I’m trying to think of an alternative route, but I’m stumped. Any ideas, anyone?

Alright, I just completed my St. Patrick’s Day unit, and it goes on sell tomorrow in my TPT Store.
