This is another page I had stared when I was making the page for my MDS Monday challenge. Even though it uses almost the same layout, it has a completely different feel to it. My son's class visited a one room school house where they participated in a real classroom experience. He really enjoyed it. I could tell because he came home with lots of stories!
Hope you will give the sketch a try of your own. Remember that this is just a jumping off point, you can switch things up a bit to fit your needs.
