Monday Made It

I'm linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics today to share some of my projects I'm been working on for the last two weeks (I didn't quite get to linking up last week).

We officially go back this Wednesday, then on Friday we have our Meet the Teacher events. With meetings all day Wednesday and Thursday, I don't know how they were thinking we would be ready for Meet the Teacher so I've been slowly going up to school to get things ready and I think I'm about there!

Substitute Report Page.

I really don't know why I've never used one, but I haven't. I've seen them all over Pinterest and have colleagues that use them but never found it necessary, until last year. I feel like I had a bad run with subs last year not following my very detailed plans or not leaving me any notes from the day. So I decided to whip one up to use. I already made several copies and put them in the pocket in my Sub Binder. Ready to go!

Back to school gifts for my Kindergarten team.

I like to get my team something small to welcome everyone back to school and get us off to a good start. I usually buy some things to put together, but I decided to make something this year. Cheaper and easier! So I made this to-do list page, customized them with my teammates names, and sent them to our district office to turn into a pad (they can do projects like this for us - it's awesome).

First Aid Kit.

The nurse gives us a small baggie of first aid stuff at the beginning of the year like bandaids and gloves, but I've never put anything out for student access before. I saw this label at Time 4 Kindergarten during a Monday Made It this summer and decided to snag it and make my own little kit for this year. I only put bandaids in it because that's all my Kinders would need but it'll give me and them better access for those boo-boos that they will inevitably get.

First Day of School sign.

I've been making a first day of school sign for a few years now. This year I decided to put it in a frame for easy handling. You can grab it for FREE for K-2 in my TpT store HERE.

Student Birthday Pencils.

I went the easy route and am doing pencils for student birthdays this year. I have many little things left over from previous years so I decided to be frugal and use all of them for my birthday/holiday student gifts. I made this cute this tag, slit the top and bottom, and put the pencils through. Easy.

Thanks for checking out my projects! And don't forget about the TpT Back to School Sale! Everything in my store is 20% off!



  1. I need a First Aid Kit in my classroom..and a full time nurse...with a stethoscope. A doctor wouldn't hurt either. Lol! Thanks for sharing!
    Rockin' and Lovin' Learnin'

  2. I love the pads you made. I was thinking about making some for my team, too. I think I could take them to Kinkos or someplace like that to get them made into pads, but I'm not sure. Great ideas.
    Are We There Yet?

  3. That is such a smart idea for the sub report, love it!

  4. Love the sub report and first aid kit. Both of those would be so handy in my first grade class.
