First I want to say that today is an awesome day! It's my hubby's birthday (and bummer for him he has to work tonight). Anyways this morning I checked my email and I had two fabulous emails awaiting me.
One telling me that I get to do a review on the infamous pencil sharpener from Classroom Friendly Supplies (OMG I could not be more excited!) So be looking for my review in about a week.
I have several packages of my favorite Ticonderoga pencils (AHHHHH Teacher Heaven) that are waiting to be sharpened, but I keep putting off because the sound of my electric pencil sharpener gives me a headache. Looks like I am waiting to sharpen these bad boys.
I also have a box full of these adorable pencils (mostly holiday related) that I was determined I would get sharpened successfully this summer. Maybe that will actually happen now that I am getting this lovely sharpener.
Needless to say I will be doing a lot of sharpening during my review of this product.
And the other email? Oh that was a goody too. It was a $25 gift card for Erin Condren's website. I won it from Lori at Second Grade Serenade. Thank you so much Lori. I can't wait to use it (right now I'm trying to decide what to buy with it since I already made my teacher planner for the year and as you will see later in this post I also made my own life planner).
And to top it all off? My hubby's car is finally fixed and thanks to his dad it only cost us $40 instead of $500. That is excellent!
Now without further ado, I bring to you my extremely packed edition of Monday Made It (I have been VERY busy!):
1-- Magnets for lunch choice board and other things
I love how they turned out; they will be featured tomorrow
(along with another MMI) for my Tutorial Tuesdays.
Check back tomorrow to see how to make them.
2-- Bright Idea Post-It Holder
This is the other item that will be featured in Tutorial Tuesdays tomorrow.
I bought all of those lovely lightbulb sticky notes knowing
I could come up with some great ideas.
I had this lovely lightbulb scrapbook paper and then...
I had a lightbulb moment.
So I created this lovely item.
This sign I painted with chalkboard paint
(you have to trust me on this one since I don't have chalk at home)
I plan on using it for a project at the beginning of the year
4-- More pointers
I created a few more pointers for my collection
5-- 28 Shared Writing Journals
Tara's shared writing journals inspired me to create my own.
I kept coming up with ideas and ended up with 28 of them.
I simply printed out the covers and attached them on to my notebooks.
6-- Name Tags and Labels
I created these name tags and labels featuring my robots and gears.
I used the avery labels for name tags that tear apart.
7--CAFE signs and posters
I finally printed, laminated, and cut these out
8--Whole Brain Posters
I also printed, laminated, and cut these out this week
I printed, laminated, and cut these out.
I was getting ready to assemble my chart when I changed my mind.
I am going to make a bulletin board out of these instead of making my chart like originally planned.
I printed, laminated, and cut out the pieces to my welcome banner.
Now I have to find some cute ribbon to attach the pieces together with.
I printed, laminated, and cut all of my calendar pieces as well.
As you can tell, I did a lot of printing, laminating, and cutting recently (thank goodness for my paper cutter; it really sped things up). Most of my items can be found at my TPT store: Emily's Teaching Goodies
12--My Life Organizer
I created my life organizer and then simply printed it out and assembled it in order.
I took it on one of my many trips to Office Max and had it bound.
I am in love with it!
Now head on over to 4th Grade Frolics to check out Tara's Monday Made It and all of the other MMI's.
