If you're not, you should be.
That's all I have to say about that.
Last year, as I was preparing to teach second grade I began brainstorming ways to spice up my classroom. My dear friend Scarlet and her (now husband) Derek came to visit Andy and I in Columbia. While talking about our schools, she showed me pictures of her classroom and introduced me to Martha Stewart's Tissue Paper Pom Poms. She gave me the how-to and we made tons! Okay, I'm lying. We only made a few, but you can crank these puppies out pretty quickly.

All you need to create this paper wonders are:
Tissue paper (heavy duty paper works best!)
As usual Martha gives a pretty great step by step sequence for completing this project. Last year, my poms made a debut in my classroom and outside in the hallway. These photos were taken prior to the school year so excuse the mess. Oh, why am I explaining this? You're teachers! You understand.
Today, my fellow former Fellow (nice alliteration, eh?) Emily and I started folding away creating poms once again. Emily decided to make a few in her school colors while I went with crazy colors (I'm exaggerating again, they aren't crazy!)
