Monday Made It (My #2)


I used to hate Mondays until I found the Monday Made It Linky Party with Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics. I can remember wondering, why is Monday so far away from Friday, but Friday is so close to Monday. Well, anyhow.....I have been quite busy working on a few things for classroom. The classroom that I will be in next year is much larger than the one I was in last year. YES!! But I want to make sure that I can fill it up with things that my students can use. Even though, I enjoy making crafty, fun things, I want to make sure that my students can benefit from them too!

I hadn't used my cricut machine in quite some time, so I decided to put it to work. I'm so proud of my mini bulletin boards/anchor charts. I found plenty of inspiration on Pintrest. 


Making Connections
Reading Strategies
Book Rating
Story Map
Question-Answer Relationships (QAR)

I was really inspired to make this when I saw Tara's project last week. She's so awesome! I couldn't resist making one.


Finally, it seems like everyone has made one of the teacher toolboxes, so I figured I should join the club. 

Well, I'm headed to Hobby Lobby. I ran out of the scrapbook paper that I was working on to make my brownie points header. I will try not to pick up anything else... Who am I kidding! LOL!!! Check you guys later!

    4th Grade Frolics

    1. The cricut is a "must-have". I have two of them now! Not that I needed two, but I couldn't resist getting the upgrade that I hardly ever use. I LOVE the "old one." (That's the shopaholic in me!) Thanks again for the linky party. It's one of the highlights of my week. :)

  4. I love it all! I'll probably have to pin everything to help me remember. So cute!!

  12. Your posters are great! It's hard to tell what they're mounted on; are they foam board or just plain old poster board? If its foam board, how do you attach it to your walls and how/where do you store them when not in use??mthanks Thanks for the info, I don't have any boards in my room and I'm trying to figure out a replacement method.
