Monday Made It - #5 (for me ;))!


Oh how I look forward to Mondays nowadays! They are making me so much more creative than I used to be! Here are my latest projects:

Background paper compliments of dreamlikemagicblog.com.

1. I was inspired by some of the "subway art" and cute framed quotes I was seeing on some of your posts, so I created one of my own with the quote that I live by and that I work hard to instill in my students as will. I love how it turned out!


2. I also saw several of you making those fancy pantsy "How do we go home?" charts. My version is below! I attached the laminated circles with clothespins to the ribbon. The bow above is actually a little girl hairbow (the clip made it easy to attach). Then, I hot glued a flower to the middle. I will add clips with student names to the correct circle at the beginning of the year!


If you would like a copy of these labels for free, click on the activity cover below. They come in both English and Spanish.


Also, don't forget to link up to my "Destination: Summer Vacation" linky to share with us all of the super places you have visited this summer and summers past while schools out! Click on the image to see details and link up!

  3. Krista, your How Do We Get Home clip chart is so much cuter than the standard poster. I think you've convinced me to make one now. I already have that exact same ribbon. Well I'm headed to Cafe du Monde for beignets and coffee, so this project will have to wait until I'm home.

  11. I heart that Gandhi quote, I strive to instill that in my students all year long as well. That looks like a Hobby Lobby frame I've been eyeing in their store. Thanks for sharing all of the great transportation freebies - I love the way your final ribbon chart turned out!

    1. It's a good one! The graphics are from Scrappin Doodles. They are the "Seven Habits" graphics collection!

  14. Thank you, Krista. What about the car and bus? Are they Scrappin Doodles as well? I've looked all over and don't see any as cute as those! Scrappin Doodles has the cutest stuff!
