I'm linking up with Tara for her lovely Monday Made it! This is quickly becoming my favorite thing to do :) I've been working on several different things for several different areas of my classroom!!
A couple of weeks ago, I posted my cover sheet for my teacher binder. I've been working on getting everything together and am happy that I'm almost finished with it! I decided to make a "master" student info sheet for a quick reference. Just a few minutes in Microsoft Excel, and I whipped this baby out! Feel free to download it and use it if it meets your needs! While I was in spreadsheet mode, I made this parent communication log. I wasn't very particular with how I documented parent contact my first year teaching...big mistake!! I think this log will be a great resource for me this year!!
Do you buy bulletin board sets? Like the ones that double as anchor charts? I've found so many different things I'd like to buy, but can't bring myself to spend the money because it's just not cute enough. That's awful, I know. I was sitting up one night and about 11:50ish, the idea struck me to make these.
My dog and I sat upstairs until around 2ish cutting out punctuation marks on my Cricut, printing out these little posters, gluing, and laminating. I'm not going to lie...I'm pretty proud of how they turned out. I'm going to put them along the top of my dry erase board so they'll be there for a quick reference for my kiddos.
While I was visiting my Grandma, I saw an ad for Hobby Lobby in her kitchen and was thrilled to see they had scrapbook paper on sale for 40% off!! I went and stocked up that afternoon!! Our campus is doing a western theme for this school year, so I was really excited to find this paper!
So, of course as soon as I came home, I jumped on Pinterest and pulled up a pin for one of those pennant banners. They are just so cute!
I'm not quite sure where exactly I'm going to use this, but I'm sure I'll find a spot somewhere!!
I know I already did a post about this, but I just have to share it again! I was browsing Pinterest one afternoon and came across a pin from Jordon and just had to copy her idea!! (She also has a great plan for using her job chart and how her students will get their jobs!) I love the idea of having student helpers, but everything I'd seen was too young for 5th graders. She had the best idea for a helper chart! An iPhone (or iTouch)! How many kids aren't mesmerized by them? I'm 25 and still get excited when I play with mine :)
Of course, I had to have the bright colored pockets!!
Well, I'm off to work in my classroom! Happy Monday again :)
