Monday Made IT!

It's Monday! I am of course linking up with Tara for Monday Made It! I have been quite busy this week. I was able to work in my classroom for a day and get everything setup furniture wise. I am going to be making another trip to Charlotte to IKEA for another bookcase. The one I got a few weeks back fits my math station boxes perfectly and while trying to figure out where my book boxes were going to go they fit perfectly too! So the amazing hubby said we could go back. Love going with the hubby but going to see if I can get a group of coworkers or friends and do a girls trip!

On to Monday Made It!

My 1st project is this cutie! I made numbers 1-5 to hang above my student tables. I haven't put them together yet, I figure I will do that when I get to school. Don't want to ruin them before I get to use it!

My 2nd project was a management chart to keep up with who is where during daily 5! I put pictures to go with it, for my visual students and since my k's can read the words they can read the pictures.

I just loved the transportation chart. My kids are always changing and I think this is an easy way to manage how they are going to get home. I will use clothespins with student names and if they are a bus rider, it will also have their bus number. This will be very beneficial when a sub is in the room as well.

My last project is still a working one as I could NOT get it to print on blue paper. I spent over an hour with the Kodak tech lady trying to figure out why my printer would not print on blue. It printed on all these colors, but I tried 2 different colors of blue paper and nothing! I was not a very happy person and still am not, since it is not finished! 

Disclaimer: None of the above are my original ideas. I pinned them on Pinterest of course. In creating this post honestly forgot to go back and link up where I found them. 

I have also been super busy printing, laminating, and cutting! Not the best job, but someone has to do it. Thanks for stopping by I will see you again next week. 

Sorry just wanted to throw this out there also. My sweet friend Heather over at First Grade Rocks.......Kindergarten Was So Last Year and I are teaming up to plan an East TN meetup! It will be in Johnson City, TN, so if you live in Western NC, or Western VA. You might be close enough to join us! If you have any questions just let me know. Hope to see you there!

Wow the transportation chart is a great idea and looks very nice too! I was thinking for the bus part you could write the bus numbers in zones around the edge, and clip in the right zone, too. This will quite likely show up in my Monday Made It next week! Thanks for the great idea!

I love your projects! I'm going to have to make the transportation one!

Oh, boo! I would LOVE to come to the East TN meetup. I'm even ETSU alum and would love to visit JC again. But unfortunately I have inservice that day. :-(

I like your Daily 5 and How We Get Home chart :) I was thinking of buyingthose tissue paper circles for the table numbers but I had previously bought 6 tissue poms to hang and thought it would be tissue overload!

Love the "How do we get home" ribbon idea. Going to have to make me one of those as well! Thanks for sharing! I am your newest follower :)
