Spruce up your Spring!

Hi there! I'm Krista from The Knitted Apple back with another blog post on Who's Who! 

Spring is almost here and it’s time for a little spring cleaning.   At home, the first sunny day always inspires change.  I often have grand plans for my change-of-season reorganization, but then reality hits.  I have not been gifted with extra time from a magical time fairy, so I do what I can and move on.

One place I do make time for a little "sprucing" is my classroom.  By this time of the year, name tags are tattered and worn, bulletin board paper is fading, and the classroom just looks TIRED.  I usually devote at least a couple of hours to refreshing the room and it makes all the difference.  I dig out those brand-new pencils, markers, and sticky notes that I stashed back in August, make some fresh new name tags for the kids, and dust off the curtains and shelves.  And while I’m digging through my stash, I inevitably start to organize the area surrounding it, which leads to more cleaning.  My classroom gets the “spruce-up” I imagined for my home.  I don’t mind though, because seeing the happy faces of my students when they spot the new supplies and classroom layout makes it all worthwhile.   

Here’s a little spruce-up I created just for Who’s Who readers! If you use newsletter templates you will love these spring templates I created! These templates are made in PowerPoint and are easy to use.  Just click the image below to download.  You will be downloading a zipped file with two templates and instructions from Dropbox.  FYI- You do not need a Dropbox account to download the files.  If you are asked to sign up, just click the button below that says, “No thanks- just download my files.”
