I had two mismatched filing cabinets.
I hate things that don't match.
Those kinds of things didn't use to bother me but now they do. SO I bought black sheets at Walmart for 4 dollars. I cut them, ironed them, and hot-glued (shhhhh) them on the filing cabinets.
I used zebra duct tape to create borders.
I would love to say that I came up with this idea, but it was my teaching partner's (and she claims NOT to be crafty :)
I now have a PERFECT space for my kids to do the Word Work portion of Daily Five.
Check out my cute helper.
