Mr. Slithers.....You are NOT Welcome in my Classroom

 I received a text message from one of the second grade teachers at my school.  She was informing me that Mr. Slithers, pictured below, was found in  my classroom.  No........your eyes are not playing tricks on you, it is indeed a snake.....YIKES!!  The second picture shows his hiding place behind my cubbies.....note the tail in the corner.




 That just makes my skin crawl!!   I am proud to report that our wonderful custodians captured my little visitor and took care of him, if you know what I mean. Poor little snake.....NOT!!! 
Dear Mr. Worker, Next time you prop the door open at the end of the hallway please be sure that you are the only thing entering the school! 
I am hoping that is how my little friend found his way in and I sure hope he doesn't have any friend that are awaiting their opportunity for a visit! 

On a happier note, I thought I would share a few things that I made this summer for my classroom.  I saw this super cute idea on pinterest.  This is my version of the dry erase picture frame.  I found this cool stickable ribbon at Joanns and just had to have it.  I also decided to make a mason jar to hold the expo markers.  I ran out of ribbon so they don't match.......which is driving me crazy!!  Will probably have to fix that soon!! 


I thought this project turned out so cute that I decided to make some for my second grade crew to match each of their classrooms. 


I am looking forward to sharing my classroom reveal.  CHECK BACK!!!

  10. I cannot stand snakes...like I might have nightmares tonight after seeing that picture. We have a pond near our school so snakes have been found inside.

    All of the projects you have shared are adorable and so is your blog...it makes me think of cute little ladybugs. =)

    I am happy to be your newest follower. If you get the chance, I would love for you to hop over and visit me. You can check out my Hug your Heart jar. =)
