I had this tin lying around the house and it didn't have much use. I decided to spray paint it brown and use it in my classroom to hold the sticks for calling on students. I ended up cutting out vinyl polka dots of pink and white with my Cricut to dress it up a little.
Since I had the tin now to hold the sticks with student names on them. I had to finish painting my sticks. I painted half pink and the other half blue. I found this idea on Pinterest. Once I call on a student I put the opposite side down, that way I know what sticks I pulled out. (Sorry for the blurry picture.)
The next project came from Pinterest as well. You have been seeing everyone redecorate their clipboards in scrapbook paper or the new duck tape. Here is my new clipboard. I still want to add the cute ribbon at the top. I will definitely be making over my students clipboards once I get them from school.
