I can't believe I am saying this but my summer is quickly coming to a close! I have a meeting at the beginning of the next week and then it's go time! I feel like some people just got out....lol. I will keep the Monday Made It weekly going through August and then see where things are after that. Again, I want to thank all of you that have linked up this summer AND ALL of my AMAZING hosts!!!! I just love this blogging/teacher community. I have gotten some great ideas!!
I'm excited to share what I have been up to this past week:) I have been busy!
My first made it has been on my list for a year and I finally just got around to making it!
I first read about a fidget bin on my sweet friend, Stephanie's blog.
I just recently read this post by her (click pic for link) and was reminded that I wanted to make one of these bins. You have to read her post.....it is full of ideas and great info about different types of items to add to your fidget bin.
So I slowly but surely have been collecting items for my fidget bin and I think I am done:)
Next, I made a class set of these adorable little Text Detective Notebooks. These cute labels are from my friend Joanne at Head Over Heels for Teaching. Thanks to Joanne and her IG, I got the little notebooks from Walgreens for 6 for a $1!
I can't wait to use these in small groups with my kiddos this year!
This made it I posted on my FB page but didn't link it up yet, so for those of you who missed it, here it is. We use dry erase boards EVERY SINGLE DAY in my classroom so this made it is a must for me.
I don't make these every year....they last 2-4 years depending on how well the kids take care of them. Last year I just needed to add new tape. This year I needed some new ones. I buy shower board from Home Depot and ask them to please cut the boards for me. Then I frame them with duct tape and done!
This next made it I am also super excited about! The past few years I have made a "Get to Know Your Teacher" bulletin board for open house and the first few days of school. Well when I saw this idea, I knew I had to make it!
This adorable product from Ashley, Teach Create Motivate, is perfect for open house and/or the first week of school so the students can get to know their teacher a little.
I was so excited to make it and had a fun time finding the pics I wanted to add:) This book is adorable and so easy to make your own....just add your pics and text and you're set!
Here's a bit of my book! I love it and can't wait for my students to get to look through it!
Finally, my last made it! If ya made it through this long post, I have a little freebie for you!
I made some new book luggage tags. (no, I don't have my class list....but I wanted samples for you to see.) They can also be used for book bins, bags, anything you want to put a label on:)
They are editable!
There are 12 different tags:)
You can grab them here! Tags with Kids!
There ya go! That's it....well, if I am being honest, it's not....I do have a couple of other home made its but have run out of buttons and time:) Can't wait to see what you all link up this week!
