All About Me T-Shirts
I have clothesline and clothespins to hang these in my classroom. I'll post a picture when I finish the project, but don't sit by your computer waiting for that post to appear anytime soon. I can be slow with classroom decoration projects!
Respect for other students.

Respect at lunchtime.
