Another week means a lot of stuff accomplished! Got lots of projects checked off my TPT list, starting lining up and organizing name tags and stuff for Vegas (14 days, if anyone's counting!), did some crafting, shopping, and a national boards field test.
So, I'm linking up with 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It to share some of my projects I accomplished since last Monday!
First up, new posters! The first two, I got printed from Snapfish and they came a couple weeks ago on my last day of school. I went to Office Max on Saturday and got them laminated - they have a teacher discount - FYI! The Lost Tooth Club poster is in my Tooth Fairy Files pack on TPT - as my kiddos lose teeth, I'll add their name to the chart and then add a check mark for each tooth they lose throughout the year. The phonics program we use in K-2 is Letterland (LOVE!) and a couple months ago, the started sending their characters around the world in their monthly newsletter. So, this year, we are going to join them - I'll make passport stamps for all those squares on the poster. Can't wait!
Next - updated my uniform check poster for my door. Note to self, share with staff!
And, made a poster with our name on your paper song!
Next up - name tags for blogger meet-ups in Vegas!
Last, I gave my classroom mailboxes and the bookshelf that sits under them a MAJOR facelift. The bookshelf I inherited my first year teaching, so it is over 4 years old. The mailboxes, I got my first year, so they are 4 years old. Both were wood-tone laminate and I have managed to get rid of all my wood-tone tables since they didn't match, and it was time for these to go too. But, I couldn't find a bookshelf the same size and this one, so I had to give it a makeover!
There were plastic strips that went along the horizontal dividers that I had covered with chevron duct tape a couple years ago. Forgot to include those in the picture.
So, after many hours spent at the kitchen counter with my mom, and lots of contact paper, I now have a pretty bookshelf and mailboxes to match!
And put them together like they'll be in my classroom
Have a great week!
