Made it Monday

I gotta tell ya, I'm not feeling the excitement that I usually feel on make it Monday :( I don't know why I feel a little down but I do. Possibly because the months of no pay maternity leave is getting to me. Sometimes stress is a real bummer!

Head on over to 4th grade frolics where Tara has her super fun linky party Make It Monday!

I have been working on a few things that are fun but now that school is on its way I felt the need to get to work on things that I need for school. Maybe not the funnest things but necessary.  And they will be fun for my kiddos!  I've been printing and making all the cool things I've bought from everyone on TPT & TN! So far I've printed 4 things:

These were on pinterest last year and I wanted to make them for my class but couldn't find the jumbo clips. Thanks to Walmart and the 88 cent isle I can make them this year! I've just used the ribbon from my scrapbooking supply. You can get 1$ rolls of ribbon at Hobby Lobby or Michael's.  I think my kiddos will enjoy getting them in their first day of school bags!

I also printed out some reward cards for my students.  I got them over at Tonyas treats for teachers and I use incentive charts in my room and when kids filled it up they got to grab from the treasure chest.  These are perfect because they can now have a choice in what their prize will be.  I think they will work harder for their reward now.

 Not so pleased with the storage of these.  I think I need to get some dividers.  Definitively need dividers...

Have a good night all!

Keep Coming Back
