Monday Made It (I've missed you!)

So I've missed Monday Made It with Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics for the past two weeks. I thought I would miss it again today, but I didn't think I would be able to rest not posting something tonight before I went to bed. I spent the majority of my day working in my classroom and I'm really proud of the progress I've made. I hope to have some pictures posted by the end of the week. But enough with the chatter. Here are a few things I've made of the last few weeks...

I created these on Vistaprint and got them for free! Yes, FREE! Well, I did have to pay for shipping. It was only a few bucks. I got 10 of the ice cream cards. I plan to purchase $5.00 gift cards to ice cream shops to give to my "Student of the Month." The classroom credit cards, will allow them to add bonus points to assignments. I think the kids will really enjoy these.

Boggle Board :)

Here is my "Common Core Caboose." I haven't finished it yet. I still have to add the students' names to the cars. For every standard mastered, they will earn a card to add to their car. I think it will be a great way to motivate the students (at least that's what I'm hoping.)

Lastly, I drew painted these animals for the halls in my school. We're doing a safari theme. I had originally made all of them for our 5th grade hall, but decided to share. :) I still have to laminate them so that I can add the googly eyes.  My husband said that all the animals looked dazed and confused. He's sooo crazy! I think they're cute especially when I add the eyes. :) Sorry some of the pics are sideways. :(

These two are for my room! Ha! They're so cute!

Of course, our hall gets the zebra! LOL!!!

Clipart is a product of Scrappin' Doodles. :)

Have a good night everyone!

  4. Oh my Gosh - your stuff is so cute!! I absolutely LOVE the Common Core Train idea... where are you going to hang it? Can you explain a little more, as in each kid gets a car on the train and then you are adding what kind of cards? I just love it..& the animals are precious (not dazed & confused !). I'm your newest follower & would love for you to stop by and visit :)

    1. Hi Kelly. Thanks for stopping by and joining my blog! :) I haven't figured out where I'm going to hang it just yet, but the cards that I'm going to make will just have the zebra print border with the standard on it. I'm going to punch a hole at the bottom of the train car for the ring. Once the student has mastered the standard, I will give them a card(w/ the standard mastered) to add to their ring. I'm not very sure if you understand the concept (I'm horrible at explaining this, I just know what I want it to look like and how it's supposed to work.) Once I complete it, I will try to post pics and maybe it will make more sense. I hope to have it completed this weekend. Please check back for an update.

  5. Aww those hall signs are awesome!

    That train? Brilliant :D

    And where did that zebra design come from on the boggle board?! Totally stalking your blog now haha
