You've Been Framed!

This is a little preview of the poster board frames I will be using this year to "frame" my students' work for our hallway display!  It is going to take some serious time to design a fun and unique frame for each first grade friend, then cut it, paint it, and laminate, but I can see the finished wall in my head...and I think that all the funky frames together will make one precious work display!  I'll post pictures of all the frames on the wall as soon as they are ready!  I need some help, though!  What should the title above the display say?  I was thinking "You've Been Framed!"  But, not entirely loving it!  I would love to hear your ideas!

Hmm... I thought of something along the lines of "Hard work is the FRAMEwork for success. I don't know exactly how to word it, but that's basically what we do in the beginning of the year! We build a framework for success for our kiddos! Good luck finding that perfect title! They look so cute!

What did you use to make the frames? Totally cute!!

Do you have any ideas for a bulletin board header for my summer school classroom?

Stephanie said...

I love the idea AND I think your title is perfect!

Sarah Cooley said...

Mrs. Bear...I used large sheets of white poster board, cut them in half, drew the frame design and cut it, then painted them using acrylic paints! Do you have a theme for your summer school classroom?

What about:
Framing Fabulousness? Or,
Fabulously Framed? Or,
First Grade Fabulous(ness)?!?

But I like yours, "You've Been Framed!" It's super simple and super cute!

And since we're on the topic of framing things, I wanted to let you know that when I was looking through your ADORABLE blog I had the idea of laminating the picture and the title of the anchor charts that are made in the classroom--AND-- possibly laminating with it, an ANCHOR CHART FRAME?!?! (I hope that makes sense)

That way I can save a super cute illustration and title in cute fonts and just use the chart as a write and wipe for future use with the kids' ideas. But honestly that's just because I am not as creative as some and if I draw a super cute picture I will want to keep it around :-)

GREAT blog!!!

I love this idea!!! I am hoping you won't mind if I take your idea and run with it. I am in the process of making my blog so I will definitely give you credit for your idea! I also like the title!

I love this idea. I may also borrow it if you don't mind.

This is an awesome idea! Not sure how big these are, but if you have access to a Cricut machine, you could cut these out really quickly using heavy cardstock. The largest size you can cut is 12x12. And, they have a million different versions of something just like this! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Kelie--these are pretty large--but I might try to use the cricut with something else I am planning for inside my classroom! That is a great idea--and will definitely save some time! Thanks!

These are really cute!

Miss Dennis said...

what about...
"great work belongs in a gallery"
"come admire our masterpieces"
"fabulous learning is a work of art"

or something along those lines?

Karen said...

Love the idea! My first thought was to use the clear sheet protectors behind each frame so you can just slip work in and out.... and now I'm off to figure out if I can use this idea in my own school.

Mary said...

I think that a play on an art museum or gallery would be cute. Something like "First Grade Masterpieces" or "Our Best Works of Art." I am not crazy about either of those but they might have potential! Love this idea!

Love this idea!! Will you label each frame with the child's name? So cute!! This is really cheesy but how about 'Frame'worthy Work! :-) What size is each frame and are you just painting each one a solid color? I may have to do something like this....thanks for the idea! ~Becky

Mrs.Capps said...

Love it SO much!!! Couple questions- will you put their names at the bottom of the frame or do you intend to reuse these? Next, will this be on a bulletin board? How will you attach the work to the frame and the frame to the board? I hate working so hard on stuff to put staples in it! Just curious?? eden_capps@scps.k12.fl.us

I LOVE this idea, and hope you don't mind me "stealing" it! I also like your title: You've Been Framed. Just one question about your frames: what size is the opening in the middle?

Love, love, love it! What a great idea! It would sure dress up the hallways!

I like your title....very cute! My first thought was "Picture Perfect Work". Can't wait to see the finished product!

Lorri said...

I just found your blog! I am super excited! You have the BEST ideas! I have been teaching for 13 years and still get excited about new ideas to use in my room. Thank you for sharing!

Katrina said...

HI THERE! How did you get the bck of your blog to be all white?

Mrs. Lamb said...

I wanted to do this and call them Masterpieces using vinyl lettering

Cristina said...

This is a great idea! I'm borrowing it for my room this year!

Oooooh!!!!! I love, love, love! This idea and the "bee"havior catalog. I hope you don't mind me borrowing. You are so incredibly creative! Thank you for sharing.

You could call it:
Picture this!

Looks like a ton of work, but well worth it! Love it!
