How Kempton Kingdom was Built

Hi, my name is Patti Kempton and I teach first grade at Pima Elementary School in Pima, Arizona. Several years ago I decided it would be fun to have a thematic classroom and I came up with the idea of having a magical kingdom in my room. It has been so much fun creating this atmosphere. We have frogs, dragons, unicorns, princes, and princessess, etc. After I had this theme for a couple of years, my husband came up with the idea of building a castle in my room. I was very worried about how much room it would take up, but I reluctantly agreed and we did it anyway. I will tell the story of how it all came about later and I will include some pictures. To make this story short right now, I will just say that my castle is awesome!!!
