Sparkle + Shine Carson Dellosa Reveal and Giveaway

Working with Carson-Dellosa had been at the top of my list of "major goals" ever since I started my blogging journey. Their classroom decor and teaching aids are classics and have been a part of education for many years. All my blogging dreams came true when I received an email this past year to partner with them on a classroom decor collaboration! Today I'm thrilled to be sharing their Sparkle + Shine decor line. This girl loves herself some gold- the color that is! The Sparkle + Shine line is a unique, yet classic way to jazz up any classroom color scheme. 

This is a sponsored post. First Grade Made received payment, trade and/or products from Carson-Dellosa in exchange for promoting, however all opinions stated are 100% my own.  

If you're familiar with my classroom or have been following me for some time, you know I'm a big fan of color. It's such a great way to add vibrance and life to a classroom. Adding subtle accents from the Sparkle + Shine line truly allows color to POP! 

In this case, I paired fun black bulletin board letters with the Gold Glitter Letters from the decor line. This highlights the true detail and beauty of the Sparkle + Shine letters.

I used a little word play to have a motivational bulletin board centered around this theme. The saying "Leave a Little Sparkle Wherever You Go" suits my teaching style and personality in the classroom. I love celebrating student's successes and individual personalities. It also aligns with my positive personality!

I wanted to keep the gold sparkle accents in line with the color theme that had been established. I thought what better way to keep the theme than to add a rainbow? I absolutely love the way it turned out! I layered tissue paper and added various Black and Gold Star Cut-out Accents from the decor line to create a floating rainbow affect. To top it off, I layered Rainbow Dots on Glitter Scalloped borders  and Glitter Stars on Rainbow Scalloped borders.

These motivational bulletin boards would also work well on the back of any classroom doors!

The Black and Gold Star Cut-outs  and Gold Glitter Star Cut-outs are also the perfect accents when hanging posters in the classroom. I attached them to clothespins and some bright colored cardstock to hang student work in the classroom and the hall.

I love all of Melanie's work from School Girl Style! She recently partnered with Carson Dellosa and is now selling her products in their stores and online! I got this precious idea of attaching stars to paper straws. These can be used for different table color/number signs or even as a place to color code markers, crayons or colored pencils!

I even accented our writing process stage by attaching a star to a clothespin. These give my students a clear understanding of what they are responsible for that day as a writer.

You can find these writing posters in my TPT store here! They come in may colored options to fit your classroom needs.

The Sparkle + Shine line even has some precious hanging file folder storage and pocket charts! My favorite is the Essential Gold Polka Dot Pocket Chart. It's such great quality and any materials that you use this with just POP! I can see myself using this as an interactive station for my students in all content areas.

It's perfect to hold interactive word wall word cards and math centers. The photograph below features a center from my Building Number Sense with Math Facts resource. For more information, you can read a blog post about it here or find the resource in my shop here.

I hope you loved seeing the Sparkle + Shine line from Carson Dellosa in a real classroom! If you have any questions, feel free to send me an email or comment below! I do my best to get back to everyone.
