An Easy Way to Hang from the Ceiling

I am so fortunate to teach in a school that permits me to hang student artwork and other decorations from the ceiling of my classroom. Hanging decorations give my room that fun spark that makes my learning atmosphere fun.


My first few years of teaching, I was constantly pushing desks around and climbing on top of them to reach the florescent lights that I clip most of my classroom decorations to. After a few years, a more seasoned teacher taught me her trick for hanging items using a yardstick and paperclips. Let me tell you, this little teacher trick was a lifesaver! What previously required at least 15 minutes of my time has been reduced to less than 5 minutes. Seriously, I timed it today. I can hang an item from my classroom lights in less than 20 seconds - and my feet never leave the ground!

If you are still climbing all over your classroom furniture to hang ceiling decorations - STOP!  I stepped back in front of the camera to share a new instructional video with you.




 I hope this makes your life much easier! Happy Hanging!
