classroom keyboard

A little over a month and a half ago I started a new job as a computer room teacher. I'd been a substitute for several years and really liked it, but wanted something more regular. I knew I didn't want to teach full-time, so this was a nice alternative. I get to get to work with all the students in the school {K-5}, but don't do lesson planning and all the other time consuming stuff that teachers have to do :-)

I honestly don't know how they do it!

Anyways, I started mid-year and the computer lab was looking run down and a little drab. I had seen this large keyboard idea online and knew it would be perfect for this large empty wall space! 

I used sandwich size take-out boxes for the 3D effect and printed the letters on colored paper. 

It was so.simple. A little time consuming, but well worth it! The kids love it!

I glued the "keys" on with rubber cement and so far they've been staying on well!

After I take some more pictures, I'll show you a few more other projects from around the room...
