Easy Pointers

Thank y'all SO much for your sweet comments on my classroom reveal. I really enjoyed reading them!

I start New Teacher Orientation on Monday. 
Where did summer go? 
I think I am "protesting" my classroom for a few days.  I brought home lots of little things to work on, but I think I want to "work" from my couch for a few days : ) 

Today I made some easy little pointers for my classroom. I got this EASY (and cheap)  idea from one of the teachers on my team. All you need is a hot glue gun, dowel rods (I used size 3/8 by 12) and some cute little wood pieces from Hobby Lobby. 

Then hot glue the dowel rods to the back of each wood piece. 

Excuse my pajama shorts, I told you I was working from my couch! 

TA-DA! Cute pointers!

The dowel rods were $2.47 for a package of 8 and the little wood pieces were only 67 cents a piece.  

Back to the couch I go! : ) 


  1. Cute and easy. Good craft!

    I go for new teacher orientation on Monday, too! I'm excited to teach, but... um, can summer be a little longer first, please?! Sheesh!
