First up on the school front, teacher toolbox, DONE. Still thinking if I should spray paint it silver... but I love red. It's just not matching perfectly with the bright zebra prints. A big thanks to Elizabeth at Fun in Room 4B for posting THIS awesome editable template to make everything go so much smoother.
I cannot wait to use these this year. Whenever I give directions, instead of the "What do I do next?" or "Can I use markers?" I will be placing these on the board as we go over directions. For example 1. Cut 2. Glue (gluestick!!) and 3. Color (markers). That way students have a visual on what to do and I can specify what glue and what coloring utensil I want used. They came from Mrs. Bainbridge.
Okay can I tell you how excited I am to use these!?!? My plan is to have them hanging on a ribbon or stapled on the wall by the door. As students leave at the end of the day, I'd like to say one to students, and they say one back to me. What a great way to practice rhyming words too! These beauties came from Mrs. Carroll.
I know you've all seen these. I was inspired by this pin.
I did the back of mine a little different. The video wanted you to duct tape the back too.. but I knew I wouldn't have enough tape and also I didn't want to waste it on a side that no one would see.
I of course had to do one of my boys too! So 50 pictures later, here's the one I chose! I think it's precious.
My canvases are 8x10 inches, and I found a 2 pack at Hobby Lobby for $4. Recently Michael's had a sale on them 10 for $15. I have an upcoming wedding and I think this would make a perfect gift to give! Soooo many possibilities!!
It's been a busy week... but I have checked SO much off my to do list. Planning to go to school today to meet our new admin team and try to get some things figured out in my room. Hopefully this week will be just as productive!
Happy Monday Made It everyone! :D
