the making of an interactive door


OK I posted this a little early...
I am now going back and linking this up with my bestest buddy Tara for her 
WONDERFULLY Fantastic....


after you read about my door come back and click on the pic above
and 
head over to Tara's to see LOTS of cool Made Its











my mom had an interactive door
for years before she retired
and I have been doing them since I started teaching
we both used a chart tablet  or chart paper on the door.
I wanted something SUPER cute and decided to do it this way...
I am going to be honest...
a few years my class make-up was NOT conducive with an interactive door... so they didn't do it
BUT no fear... I try it every year with my kiddos and you can tell right away if it is going to work...
THIS YEAR it is going to work... YAY
I usually change questions or titles... every week or two.
I am so excited to share this with you guys and look forward to hearing what you have to say :)

and on a side note
it is somebody's 5th birthday today!!!

he started PreK last Tuesday and LOVED it!!!
I was a little nervous for him...
BUT I did NOT cry which was a feat in itself!!!
my little bub is growing up!!!
Happy Birthday BUB...
and poor baby woke up with a fever and runny nose...
so dinner plans have been canceled and a full day of cuddles and new toys are on the menu!!!

    1. you could attach your yard sticks with the 3M Command velcro sticky tabs that are removable...they hold pictures up I'm sure they'd hold up a yard stick.

  5. I am in LOVE with your interactive door! Is this on the actual door to your classroom? We have a small glass window in ours that we are not allowed to cover or else I would TOTALLY be making myself one of these cool doors! You have so many great ideas!

    And Happy Birthday to your precious little man! Hope he feels better soon! :-)

  6. I LOVE this idea! I'm trying to think of how to rearrange things so that I can do it! I have a glass window in both external doors, but maybe I could find narrower paper rolls! Happy Birthday to your little guy!
