The summer is certainly winding down and I (like you too, I'm sure!) am busier than ever! I spent the day trying to work in my classroom. My poor boyfriend had to go with me and listen to my ranting as he put together several items (2 shelves and a desk chair). Couldn't have done it without him!
So I'm linking up with my first ever Monday Made- It... on a Tuesday.
Better late than never, right?
I LOVE birthdays! I always like to give my kiddos something to take with them. I found these pencils at Walmart for $1 a pack.
I found these super CUTE printables from Lucky to Be In First!
I cut each of them out and attached them to the pencils. I will put them in my clear paint can from Michael's so they are easily accessible on birthdays.
Another thing I've been working on are my Goodwill finds. I got 2 of these chairs for $5.50 each. I didn't really like the khaki color and wanted something a little more fun!
I spent a few days sanding them. (I have decided that I strongly dislike sanding!) And found this fun color at Home Depot.
I cannot wait to put these in my classroom library!!!!
And then I decided to jump on the "Teacher Toolbox" bandwagon. But I have wanted one for my desk and one for my guided reading table. I brought really bright scrapbook paper from Target and used a template that I downloaded from Fun in 4B. I love the way that they turned out.
Evidently, I've been feeling extra crafty lately!
I spent the weekend with a wonderful group of bloggers! Amanda over at Teaching Maddeness put together a great SC blogger meet-up where I got to meet a lot of the bloggers that I currently follow. I also got to meet a lot of bloggers that I now follow! :)
