Best Nine of 2017 – Instagram

Best Nine of 2017 – Instagram

Hello! As you may already know, I absolutely love Instagram. There is a huge amount of inspiration for the classroom and I spend far too much of my time on there! At the end of the year many people share their ‘best nine’ images in a compilation grid, which means the images that had the most ‘likes’ over the year. I shared this grid over on Facebook but one of my followers commented that she isn’t on Instagram and asked if I could share the larger images – so here they are! ๐Ÿ™‚

Instagram Compilation Grid

This is the original compilation grid…

Pretty Lights

I shared this after noticing how pretty the lights in my classroom look when I get in at 6.30am. I have them all year round and think they add to a ‘calm’ feeling in the room…

Rainbow Blocks

Oh how we love these rainbow blocks. They ‘live’ in our construction area, but are fabulous outdoors on a sunny day. I shared the first time we used them in this post.
