In an effort to make my room more colourful I decided to create stickers with musical terminology to stick on my classroom walls.
I used all of the available words in the Quarter Note cartridge on Cricut Design Space. I sized each word so that they were 3″ tall, no matter the width.
I tried to evenly distribute them among the 8 colours I wanted to use. Using the colour sync tool is amazing. It ensures the reds are all the same shade so they all cut on the same piece of vinyl or paper.
I ended up having about 4-5 words per colour.
With 8 different colours.
I didn’t have one big open wall so I decided to spread them out around my room. As you can see, my sound proofing is gray, walls are gray, floors are gray and my new cupboards are gray. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very lucky to have a renovated room. It really just needs some colour.
(Excuse the mess. I have a lot of junk that I can’t seem to throw away but it’s either broken or useless to me. It ends up on these filing cabinets.)
After applying all the words (Which was no small feat) I made a list of the words as a checklist and let my students search for the words as a scavenger/treasure hunt. The one thing that made this difficult was the cursive writing.
