Monday Made It

I'm linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for Made it Monday again! Sorry I'm a little late... my projects have been finished, but haven't had time to post-crazy first week back to school!

READ Letters:
I picked up these wooden letters from Michael's. First, I glued scrapbook paper on the letters using Modge Podge. Then, I cut around the letters with an Exacto knife to trim the paper. Finally, I sealed the letters with a layer of Modge Podge (glossy finish). They will go perfectly with my black & white theme!

Custom Rubber Stamps:
I didn't actually make these rubber stamps, but I did design them! Disclaimer: I really run across the desks, not dance so much, when I have a very exciting teaching moment!!! {I've been doing this since my first year teaching, so I need to keep up the tradition!} I love the heel-it just completes it! I can't wait to use that stamp-I hope somebody does something amazing on the first day of school so I have an excuse to stamp away! :) The second stamp is just something I like to say when I celebrate, so I thought I should stamp papers that should be celebrated too! This is one of my favorite summer purchases at Office Depot!

Student Medals:

These medals will be used as an incentive for students to do their best on a test to earn the privilege of wearing a medal for the day! (I bought 18-I'm hoping for lots of high scores/improvement!) I bought the medals at Target Dollar Spot (2 pack). Actually, that's not true... my fill-in mom, Judy, went hunting all over for me while I was on vacation and found the idea from Lana from 4 the Love of Teaching. (I couldn't convince my family to take an excursion to Target!)

Post a comment...I'd love to hear from you!

  3. M...your medals are the best! (My ideas was to make labels to stick on the students' shirts, as seen on Pinterest.)
    The medals will stand out nicely so that any staff member or peer from another class can acknowledge the student!

    P.S. I have your extra medals and sending them in the mail today! :)
