Classroom Decor Tip

Today I just wanted to share a quick classroom decor tip with you! I know, I'm a little late...I've already been back to school a whole month! :/

To start here are a few pictures of my classroom...

Now here is a little tip for ya...
If you are like me, you like to use your whiteboard for many purposes. In the past it was really easy for my whiteboard to become cluttered and unorganized, looking just like a big hodge podge at the front of my classroom. I started to use borders a few years ago to create separate areas on the board. It would take lots of time to cut the border and add tape or hot glue magnets to make it stick. I really wanted to purchase the magnetic border that you can find at many teacher stores and websites, but when I calculated how much magnetic border I would need I couldn't fathom spending that much money! One day while I was at the Dollar Tree I discovered these little cling borders. 
I bought one pack and thought I would give it a try! I am so glad I did. I took the border to school, cleaned the white board with a damp cloth and stuck the border on. This is the third year I am using the border and it works perfect. 

The best part was that to create the border for my entire white board it only cost me $10.00!!! In a close second place, it is also sooooo amazing to come in on Monday morning and not have any of the border on the floor as a result of the a/c being off all weekend {which is what used to happen when I tried to put the border up with tape or magnets}.

Happy Decorating! :)
