Welcome to the Jungle ~ 2019 - 2020
A Year at Hogwarts was a tough theme to follow!
However, I am truly enjoying the relaxing ambience of the tropical rainforest for the 2019 - 2020 year. This is the second year that the entire school has adopted my library's theme which is combined with "The Love of Reading" initiative.
Lead by our fearless administration leader, Aussie Gal, our halls have been transformed into lush jungle habitats with the 3 pods (K/1, 2/3, and 4/5) named after the Australian Rainforest, the Congo, and the Amazon.
The best investment I made for this year's set up was buying a huge roll of brown craft paper from the amazing staff at Creative Children in Port Moody, BC.
The paper made all the vines all over the school, paper bag monkey for 80+ students, covered several bulletin boards, and many other decorations!
Massive props go to the staff at Creative Children, who searched high and low for the roll in their warehouse and made sure I had everything I needed despite the busyness of back-to-school shoppers! Love these guys!
Once again, I checked out Marketplace and Craigslist for stuffed monkeys and I was not disappointed! I even located a beautiful green snake too!
