Today I'm linking up with Fourth Grade Frolics for Monday Made It. I've definitely been in work mode the last few weeks trying to get things created and ready for my classroom.
#1 This upcoming school year I'm doing something different for student birthdays. Every year I've made play dough for my students for different reasons. I saw this on Pinterest and thought I'd do it for my student birthdays this year. I'm waiting until school starts to make the play dough so it will be fresher; but I have already made the containers for it. I bought the containers at Walmart, like these, made the labels, and hot glued them onto the lids.
If you like the labels, I've included them in my TpT store. They are a FLASH FREEBIE today and tomorrow ONLY. **This freebie has expired.
#2 I also made a Vacation Journal for my students this year. Last year I had a lot of families travel during the school year, and even had a few parents ask about a journal. So I finally made one that fit my needs. If interested, it's in my TpT store, clicking on the picture will take you to it.
#3 I bought these Composition books last year, wanting to use them with my kiddos, but ended up not using them. So this year I knew I wanted to put them to use! Since I'm teaching Kindergarten I figure my kiddos won't be needing full pages, so I sweetly asked my hubby to cut them in half as I've seen on Pinterest.
Now I'm off to a Homegrown Institute for Lucy Calkins Units of Study!
