Happy Monday! I am linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for her Made it Monday linky.
I have been blog stalking Tara for awhile now and when she announced her new color scheme for her classroom I thought to myself, I want a color scheme too. But I didn't just want to copy her color scheme and I wanted to incorporate superheroes into my classroom as well. So I tried and tried to come up with a color scheme that I wanted to use and then a few things happened.
One I got a copy of Tara's Just Doin My Job. Then I got a copy of her Homework Club Numbers and Headers (blog stalking has it's privileges). Then I realized I OWN the line art of the superhero clipart I love!! So I did it, I totally copied Tara's color scheme.
Here is what I have made so far...
Binder covers. I am in the process of moving all of my files and resources from file folders to binders. I used paper from Ashley Hughes and frames/elements from Megan.
Here is how they look so far (I am loving them so far).
Using the same format I have made labels for everything I could think of so far...
I also decided to do a little make over of my bookshelf. I bought the magazine holders from IKEA, some ribbon from Michaels's and cute little labels from Michael's and voila...
And since everything I made has been focused on classroom organization I am going to share two more things I have changed in my classroom and link up with Elizabeth at Fun in Room 4B and Kristen at Ladybug's Teacher Files for their linky too....
So in addition to loving my binder and bin system that I have been working on I also bought 4 bins to use for group work.
I labelled them twice because I'm not sure if I want to call them by bin number and group number.
But what I really like are these little food containers that I found at the dollar store, in just the right colors that I will use to hold any little cards or dice or counters needed for the activity!
Speaking of dice, while I was at the dollar store buying these containers I found an ice cube tray with a lid and I bought it to hold my dice. This is how I used to keep my dice (don't judge - yes that is a Styrofoam cup)
Now I will be storing them like this
Put the lid on them and it is perfect for storing and easy for the students to use.
Sorry for the super long post but I am just loving all the things I made to help organize my classroom for next year.
