It's crunch time folks!
My vacation is quickly slipping away, and I'm trying to get as much done as I can before I will be required to enter the work force for another 36 weeks.
Which is good because now I can share it with y'all through Tara's Monday Made It.
Last week, I was number crazy! Teri at A Cupcake For the Teacher has these sweet numbers available. They are so cute!
I used them to make an attendance board:
I used them to number my Kindergarten Book Baskets:
and my First Grade Book Baskets:
I used them to number my table caddies:
Also, I used them to make my 'Pick Me' sticks:
I love these numbers.
For awhile when I began teaching first grade, I didn't have a pocket chart stand. So, I made one out of pvc pipes. Fast forward a couple of years and I received a beautiful big cart for my pockets charts and chart paper. My neglected pvc pipe stand was taken apart and thrown on top of my shelving unit to gather dust.
I don't know why I didn't think about it before, but I could still use my stand.
I could cut it and make mini chart stands. Duh!
|Before when it was still a tall boy.|
|A snip-snap here and there. I love my pvc pipe cutter!|
Then, I spray painted them to make them look bright and happy!
I'm so glad I picked up some more Dollar Spot pocket charts. I can never have enough!
Slowly my classroom is looking like a classroom again. I'm so happy.
Our lovely linky host, Tara, had a genius idea for making those Dollar Spot dry-erase pockets pretty. Fancy duct tape!
It will probably make them last longer, too.
And for the home:
Our wood sign came in and now I've got me a good ol' country kitchen! :)
I was just beginning to feel good about all of my hard work when I got this in the mail Friday:
The report date is literally the first day of school for my kiddos.
And so it begins...
