March: Dive Into Reading Display

During the month of march my school has a two week Interim. The students all go on exciting trips around the world as well as participating in unique activities. This year a few of our trips focused on water: scuba diving, surfing...... so the idea for this display was easy! Dive into reading!

I cut out the waves, fish and title using the Silhouette Cameo. Because Interim is all about the activities that the students will be experiencing we like to make a display with books on each topic. I used the Silhouette Cameo to print out the name of each excursion on a fish and then cut out that fish. I place each fish under the corresponding book on the display.
We had lots of fish! The display turned out really cute. You could easily take this same idea and just leave the fish blank!

March: She Believed She Could So She Did, Women's History Month Display

March is Women's History Month, for our display I found some awesome propaganda for and against Suffrage. If you do a search on Pinterest for Women's Suffrage, you will find many options. I took the different posters and comics and made one side of the display all comics for Suffrage and the other side against it. I originally had all the shelves with comics as well but it was a bit overwhelming once the display was up. I cut out the quote for the display name using the Silhouette Cameo.
