A friend pointed this classroom decor idea out to me on Pinterest, and I thought I'd give it a try. It looked simple enough.
After putting it together, I was thinking it didn't look exactly like my inspiration, but it was still cute.
That is...until the students walked in the door that first morning. Their reactions deflated any improper pride I had over my creation.
"Whoa. What is THAT?"
"Is it a pilgrim?"
"No, it's a pioneer!"
"It's a CAT!"
We had an unplanned mini lesson on scarecrows, and I think we're now all squared away as to what the heck our door is supposed to be.
