So the weather isn't cooperating for a day in the sun today which means I must go into my classroom and get busy! (Those orange bars better be off of those doors or I just might lose it...in public this time.) If I could just get my room looking like I was ready for the kiddos I'd feel a lot better! Our staff days are August 21-23 and our Open House is exactly one month from today...so technically, I still have time but here's the thing...there's a lot of other stuff that needs to be squeezed in during that time and I need to be able to still have my pool days...so it's crunch time for me.
Have you seen that cute idea about melting used crayons in those shaped ice cube trays?
Well, I bought the cute ice cube trays, peeled my old crayons and seth them outside...
like everyone else did.
Day 1: All day on the table which resulted in no melting.
Day 2: All day on the pavement (concrete is hotter, right?)...again, no melting.
Today is Day 3...the sky is full of clouds and I'm feeling a lite sprinkle which tells me that this idea is a bust for me. Oh well...too many other things to work on in the meantime. Maybe I'll just keep them outside for the rest of the summer and see if they're done in time to be a Halloween treat or something! :)
