I'm currently having a Fun Friday Chart Makeover Crisis. As you already know, I am sick and tired of the clips.
You've heard me say it over and over. Sick and tired. I confiscated three clips from two different girls' heads of hair today because that's how sick and tired I am of clips. Give me those, I said. Now.
You also know how I tried to use magnets.
But the student numbers didn't exactly magnetically attract to the magnets which defies all sorts of science to me, but there you have it. My class got to have a free for all Fun Friday last week which some enjoyed immensely while others felt as if it was the biggest injustice since the last time recess was canceled due to that wayward leaf blowing too dangerously near a child's precious eyeball.
(No, that's not true. Scoff. That would never happen.)
SO THEN I decided to use velcro.
Hubby thought I could stick the velcro dots on top of the existing magnets and not re-make the chart.
He has not come to terms with my illness of All-Things-Must-Be-Cute.
I re-made the poster on the weekend. I made the poster (minus the velcro) because one must laminate the poster with the labels on it so that one has durability and never has to make it again. Clearly, two times is enough.
I laminated it at school on Tuesday.
Yes! It's green. I'm trying something different here, people. And the velcro circles are white. So cute, I tell you.
And then I ran around like a crazy person on a Tuesday morning after a holiday . . . and was I distracted and still a little sick . . .
I had just enough time to cut out the laminated poster before I had to go pick up my kids from the playground. I mean, why wait? I had to finish this darn thing. It's been a thorn in my side and I needed to show you-all the finished product!!!
So I grabbed my best Laminate Cutting Scissors (there is such a thing and no, you cannot borrow them, and yes, I do hide them) and cut away.
Not the laminate.
For those of you not familiar with my illness,
this is not cute.
Now my poster looks like this:
Raise your hand if you think I've lost my ever loving mind.
