Monday Made it

Yay for Monday Made it with 4th Grade Frolics and only four hours of sleep.  Note the sarcasm!  That should be great to be "well rested" for curriculum planning today with my new team.

I made a quick project this week since I was so busy printing, cutting, laminating, and cutting some more centers out.  13 in all!  I've see this idea on Pinterest and wanted to create my own!  I'm sure my second graders will constantly be asking me questions, so I decided to make a "Ask Me" lanyard for students to where.  I'm hoping this will help out in my new classroom!

I created a circular graphic in PowerPoint, then printed them as a handout slide (2 to a page): 

Cut them out and glued them back to back:

Found a lanyard:

Sent them through my laminator and TADA!!! My finished product!!!

Click here to download the "Ask Me" file!  (This is my first attempt at a Google Docs on here.. cross your fingers it will work!!)


  1. This is a great idea. I love the little question marks!

  3. I totally use this and it's great! I call them my "Centers Whiz" - this is my most responsible student who can answer any questions while I'm meeting with small group. Works like a charm :) I am your newest follower! Glad I found your blog via the linky.
