I am excited to link up with 4th Grade Frolics and share something fun that I made this weekend!
So about a month ago, I lost my bell that I ring to get the class' attention. I normally use it when an activity is over, so they know it is time to clean up. They also know, that when I ring the bell they are to: give me the "quiet sign" (quiet coyote...anyone use this gem???), look at me, and of course, be quiet. :) I have been looking for a cute bell to replace my lost one with and I haven't had any luck. Then I found this...
I found it at a thrift store, but I actually have seen it at Pier 1 Imports. I thought I could mod podge it with teacher scrapbook paper and use it in my classroom. What's funny, is when I ring it, I will know what is says under it and
Here is my decorating process: First I organized my supplies- bell, scissors, paintbrush, mod podge, and scrap book paper.
I started by cutting out cute sections of the paper that I could glue onto my bell.
Then I just started placing the paper on the bell, and adding layers of mod podge on!
Here is the finished product!
Before and after:
What type of "noise makers" do you use to get your class' attention?
