Our school has no air for the summer now that we are trying to conserve energy. The no air makes working in your room crazy hot.
See my high-tech cooling system!
My whole purpose for going to work in my classroom was to cover more of my tables in contact paper. I got this idea from an awesome blog Ladybugs Teacher's Files. She puts contact paper on her table every year. I love her room so much. I actually have room envy. This is my first year of putting the contact paper on my tables.
This is the before!
Supplies that I used: Contact paper, scissors, black electric tape, and a thumb tack
This is what happens when you rush!
Things that I learned:
- What ever you do, take your time. (Or you end up with the above picture)
- Do small sections. I chose a speckled contact paper and you could not see the seems.
- Use a thumb tack to pop any air bubbles.
- Don't worry to much about the sides of the table because you cover the side with electric tape.
The after! It looks so much better.
Another table I covered today!
I have a few more tables to cover. I hope to be done soon. It is making such a difference in the look of the room. A few of my teaching buddies stopped by and said when I was done their tables were waiting. However, I do not have that much patience.
