I am SOOOOO excited to be linking up with 4th Grade Frolics for my very first Monday Made It. I am new to the blogging world so this is very exciting for me.
I have been VERY busy, so I have a few things to share with all of you.
Made It #1
Okay.....so I have been admiring all the wonderful crate seats that you guys have been posting. I just couldn't rest until I had some of my very own. My room has a red, black and white theme. I found these wonderful bandannas at Walmart for $1. I just could not pass them up. They fit my crates perfectly!! Walmart has lots of fun colors in bandannas......you should check it out!!! I only made three seats. I decided to use them in my reading center instead of at my table like many of you did. They are currently storing my math books.....LOVE IT!!
Made It #2
This is my WHERE ARE YOU board. It was inspired by Second Grade Style. I decided to use the stone magnets and instead of having students move their numbers when they leave the room I have them move the stones. Each child has a stone with their picture on it.
Here is a close up of the stones.....This little cutie just happens to belong to me!!
Made It # 3
I am very excited about my new birthday board. I was inspired by a post from Erica Bohrer First Grade . On the first day of school I will take pictures of my students holding the date of their birthday and place it under the corresponding month. And........guess what?? This little project did not cost me anything but a little time. I simply used scrapbook paper, sticky letters, and ribbon all of which I already had. LOVE THAT!!!
Here are a few closeups!!
Made it # 4
I have had the most FUN creating these babies!! I have seen tons of tutorials and projects on covering clipboards. I finally decided to try it out. I am absolutely in love with them. I plan to make a few each day or so until I have a whole class set. This is another project that did not cost me much at all. I again had all the scrapbook paper. I ALWAYS have Modge Podge on hand. The clipboards are my old wore out ones from my classroom (they really needed a makeover). The only thing that I had to purchase was ribbon.
I found these for $1 each at The Dollar General. This is wired ribbon which is a little awkward to work with for this project. I just loved the ribbon so much that I decided to buy it anyway and remove the wire. Worked like a charm!!
I also found this ribbon at Walmart. It was only .47 cents each. GOTTA LOVE A DEAL!!
Thank you much to 4th Grade Frolics for hosting this linky. I really look forward to Mondays!!! Now.....off I go to read about all your wonderful ideas!!!
