streetfind + poster+ paint+ varnish = educational piece of furniture for my class

After I had saved the Ikea darling from the street I sanded it, added new rolls (?), painted it light blue and used all the pictures from a poster for children: "Our singing birds". Somehow I couldn't resist to add a bit of glitter also. Finally I made cards with the names of the birds and very short texts, so that you have to read and try to find the matching picture. Solution/ control sheet at my desk! Grin

That looks great. Your pupils are very lucky that they have such a creative teacher who is prepared to put in so much time and effort. Hope they learn the names of the birds!

This is awesome.  Nature is the best.  I work for a little old lady that knows everything about birds...this makes me think of her.  Very very cute!
