I am super excited to be linking up again with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for another Monday Made It! ( I would have linked up earlier today, my I crazily pulled my darling little girls around for a 2 mile bike ride in the heat... yes I am crazy!!)
This week I have been working on a ton of common core curriculum "stuff" and trying to plan out my first novel, "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing". I am also still trying to figure out how to incorporate aspects of the Daily 5, CAFE, and The Book Whisperer into my new classroom.
And about that new classroom, I received an email the 1st week of July saying my classroom was clean and all my stuff had been moved, except now they are waxing/cleaning the floors and I can't get to it! I have sooo much stuff to do in there before September, and I know it is still only July, but at the end of this week I have two planning days, regional curriculum days next week to attend, then our vacay to North Carolina, then my coaching starts mid August. After that I only have half days and I would still like to spend time with my girls. Phew!!! I can't believe that school will be here before we know it! Anyway, on to my projects for the week:
I created a WELCOME sign, inspired by Tara at 4th Grade Frolics, except that I used scrapbook paper and those awesome sticky letters from my Cricut machine!!! I laminated them and then used cute ribbon to attach. I can't wait to hang it up outside my door!!!
(My phone really isn't taking very good pictures... the colors are hot pink, hot green, and black... my new classroom colors!!!)
I have been working on making those Sterlite plastic containers cuter, but since they are stuck in my classroom this project isn't finished! Here are the sheets that will go in the front of the drawers. I made 3 sets, one for each of my classes. The kiddos will turn in their work in these drawers.
I ordered large plastic containers to but the kiddos' writing folders in, so I made a couple of quick labels to go on the outside for each section of my ELA classes.
That is it for today's Monday Made It!! I am still working on more curtains for the ugly cupboards and then onto some picture frames... as long as the girls take a good nap today!!! Thanks for stopping by!
