Yesterday I talked about the computer words in each lab. You can see my post here. In addition, I decorated using websites likely to be used by the students working on language arts projects. Some of the websites in this lab were Biography.com, CitationMachine.com, GrammarBook,com, DistinguishedWomen.net and Shakespeare.org.uk. The websites were cut using Arial font because it is the same as the default font for browsers. These sites were interspersed between the computer terms and a few graphics.
In this lab I used books and writing graphics.
I especially liked these images next to the Shakespeare.org.uk. They came from the Cricut Sentimentals cart. I used a sharpie in my Cricut to write "ink" on the ink well. The pen is three separate pieces of vinyl, light gray for the spine and nib, white for the feather and black as the base. Each of these pieces fit on one 12 x 12 piece of vinyl. I used Oracal 631 for all of my images. This is the same as "Cricut Vinyl". I purchased the vinyl from Craft Vinyl. Nick did a great job of getting me what I needed in a timely manner. He does it all so give him a call if you are looking for vinyl.

For this lab, I used Cursive 101 for most of the images. The stack of books, open book (I didn't get a picture of it), dictionary and computer monitor all came from Cursive 101. The mouse can be found on Animal Kingdom and then Sentimentals rounds out the room with the pen and ink.
Please join me tomorrow so I can show you the timeline in the main lab. It took the majority of my time and has a lot of different pieces.
