I've been missing from blog world. Still working on making this a part of my routine.
Our school theme this year was "We Walk by Faith, Not by Sight". I played with words for days, and came up with a mystery theme. We can't see faith, but it's there. We need to search for the clues. Get it?
I bought these cute little detectives at Scrappin Doodles for my beginning of the year papers, and ended up using the concept for my bulletin board detectives. I like the board so much so that I haven't taken down my little people or the saying and just keep posting the kids work on the same board.
I put cut each student's name out of magazines (think ransom note, except not creepy) and glued them on a chapter book that was old and falling apart. I laminated the magnifying glasses and just didn't cut out the middle so they looked "real".
