Linky Party! Teaching Tip: Hanging Artwork and Decorations

I am only 5'2"(well, okay, really 5'1").  I spent years climbing on step stools, taping things to the ceiling and hanging things from the lights.  One day, I walked into some children's museum (I don't recall which one) to find artwork and decorations hanging from a very cool, "reinvented" clothesline.  I now zigzag one across my classroom about 1 or 1 1/2 feet from the ceiling.  It has 3 eyelets holding it to the walls and forms a triangle.  I simply clip everything to it:  artwork that is drying, artwork that is finished, holiday decorations, sight words, EVERYTHING!  In this picture, I used the clothesline to hang some blue plastic tablecloths.  They looked really neat as decorations for our ocean unit.

Thanks for reading,
