Monday Made It-February

I'm linking up with Tara for Monday Made It-February!
 
Made It #1
These "Text Detective Notebooks" were created accidentally actually! I was in search for clipart for a detective and came across this detective hat graphic (My Cute Graphics) and thought...Wouldn't this be so cute to use on a notebook for students to keep track of their "evidence"??!! After reading a piece of text they can cite their evidence in their little notebooks! I'm using them for my observation tomorrow, so they've been on my table for a few days and my students are going crazy with curiosity! They can't wait to get their hands on them even though they don't know what we're doing with them! I guess I already have them hooked! hehe
 
A close up picture...
I used a piece of lined paper as the background and printed these cute little graphics on full size labels and cut to size. I can't wait to see them in use! Pick up these free labels here!
 
Made It #2
 I FINALLY finished my class set of evidence key rings! (25...lots of cutting, but now I'll have them for several years!) I've just been using a small set in reading groups and my posters are on display for the class to see, but now everyone will have their own key ring! I'm also using these for my observation (with their new detective notebooks!).
 
Made It #3
New Student Tub-At the beginning of the year I always make extra stuff for those unexpected new students and it somehow ends up in all different "storage areas" in my classroom. This year has been so nice because I had it stored in one location ready to go when I was notified of a new student entering my class the next morning. (At least one thing was ready right?) I have homework folders, procedures, parent information, writing folder, cover sheet, etc.) Just made a one for a friend!
 
Monday Made It #4
These Valentines are for my daughter's class. I found these chapsticks 6 to a pack at Walmart during their Christmas clearance sale (why they were on clearance I'm not sure-no holiday logo) and knew I could use them for something! The tags read "I want to STICK with you Valentine!" She really likes them and is excited to give out her "lipsticks"!
 
 
Thanks for hosting Tara!

  6. Joanne's detective notebooks were a huge hit with my co-taught ese/gen ed class. I could not believe the responses they wrote today during a lesson on theme. It really made my job worth it all and the kids were learning so much. I am one of Joanne's biggest fans. She is amazing!!!!
