Hello all! I have been struggling to keep up with this little old blog, read all the blogs I love and finish up the school year. But, I didn't want to miss the chance though to link up with the super sweet Joanne at Head Over Heels for Teaching for her linky.....
Today I am going to share something I will be using next year that is an extension of something I have in my classroom now.
In my class I have these two magnets.
One is for hanging anchor charts or checklists for students (before they make it to a bulletin board or on to the anchor chart hanging rack). The other is for posting student work - to inspire the other students or to serve as an example or just give a student a good feeling.
I was at our Parent Council meeting (I am one of the staff reps) and we were talking about making magnets for our school and we were saying how we could just use the peel and stick ones for a quick fix rather than order some. One of the parents had never seen them so I went and got one of mine and she said "I never got one of these home with my daughter" and just like that a lightbulb went off in my head. I can make more of these magnets, add the student's names and send them home when a student does some super work or reaches a goal or well for whatever I want.
So I made new ones up for next year so they will be ready to go home as soon as the super work happens. Too get them to fit neatly on the magnetic business card trim off the black border, just sayin'. These are the cards I use.

If you are interested in making some magnets here is a copy of the file I made for next year. I made ones with room for names and ones without.
Hope you can use these too!
