My Silhouette Portrait
Last year on Black Friday, I bought myself a Silhouette Portrait machine. I think it’s been on everyday since then, cutting out vinyl for different places in my classroom. I thought I would show you some of the ways I’ve used it so far.
I think this one is my favorite so far! I cut 6 inch circles out of vinyl (turquoise of course) and stuck them to my carpet. My kiddos line up on them and its helped to make our line a lot straighter. Since this picture was taken, I’ve added numbers to each dot with a permanent marker. Each child has a number and lines up on that number no matter what. Its cut down on “he cut me” and I don’t want to go to the end of the line. I can assign new numbers at anytime and the children know that if the person in front of them is absent, they leave their dot empty.
I used turquoise vinyl here to label my morning baskets. The children turn in their red take home folders each morning and eventually their baggie books and homework folders will get returned in the other bucket.
I also added some vinyl to my Author’s Chair. The kids think it’s so cool that the chair has a title! 🙂
