Another Thing Your Ed. Prep Courses Don't Tell You

Photobucket

Sure, you'll wear ~many~ hats as a teacher:  teacher, snack-provider, disciplinarian, nurse, speech therapist, and soother-of-boo-boo's-and-owies.

But there's a good chance you'll also need to be a PIRATE, and possibly even...

... a MOOSE.

Make sure to staple paper headgear so that the prongs face to the OUTSIDE of the band, otherwise you'll risk ~major~ snag and scrape damage.

That's what I'm here for: teacher fashion heads-up and advice.

Here's a great pirate hat and eyepatch template from Made It~

The Sassy Pepper shows us how to make a very cute "Sunday" or fancy hat with newspapers...

Want to make the traditional triangular newspaper hat?  Click here for a photo tutorial~

Paper bunny ears found here...

... and why not use a paper plate to make a flower crown?

Winners for my Bailey Book Give Away have been selected, but I haven't heard back yet from the Scholastic representative.  Once I do, I'll let you know who the winners are (nope, I'm not trying to leave you in suspense)!

  5. Sometimes I am a reindeer.... I love our reindeer hats. Also, sometimes I just wear crazy hats (all yellow for yellow week, or full of fall designs for our fall party...)
