STAR Project, Giveaways, & Blog Award

I finished another semi-crafty project.  I don't get on Pinterest as often as I used to, which might be a good thing.  However, everytime I do someone I know has pinned a set of wooden letters spelling READ that have been covered with paint or decorative paper.  I had to do something like it.  Our class motto is going to be, "Be a Super STAR".  STAR will be an acronym representing our classroom rules. I found the idea for what each letter could stand for over at the Second Grade Teacher's Club.  From there, I added details about what each really means to me:



Here are the letters I made to go on the wall.  They are painted black on the front.  The sides of each letter are painted to match the coordinating star.  Once I get these up on the wall, I will hang smaller posters underneath with the matching descriptions for each letter.





Have you seen this linky & giveaway?  You have until July 11th to link up and be entered to win an Erin Condren gift certificate ($50 value).


This summer giveaway is going on until July 4th!





I have been blogging for just under 2 months now.  I have learned so many fabulous ideas from so many of you.  Today I received this lovely surprise from Julie over at Math is Elementary:

When I visited her site, I also found out there are some "rules" for this award. 


1.  Follow the person who gave you the award.
2.  Link back to the person who gave you the award.
3.  Pass the award on to 15 new bloggers.


So, here's my attempt at 15 blogs, in no particular order.  I apologize if you've already received this award.  I guess it just makes you that much more deserving :)  Oh, and I know some of you are counting to see if I really chose 15.  I confess...I didn't.  If you aren't following one of these sites already, I encourage you to take a peek.

Thanks for the award, it made my day, night, evening and all in between. Hey, those accordian flowers are VERy easy to make. On a scale of one to ten, I'd say one. Get a mini stapler and it is even easier.
