Monday Made It

I am linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for her linky....

First, last week I worked on a few clipboards. This is my second try making clipboards but I followed the directions from Jessica at Literacy Spark and I am way happier with they way they turned out. The ones from last year are in the student pile of clipboards now.

I did mine front and back because I will be using them for assessment (so I can flip them over or walk around and they will still be cute!). I have one for math, reading and writing. I will be using more labels this year when doing assessments and will just keep the label sheet, checklists, class lists etc. that I am using that day/week with the clipboard.

Next I made a NOISE sign for my classroom. I originally saw this on a blog and now I can not find it to give credit!!!! So after I first saw this I tried it out by writing the word on my white board and it worked! So I knew I wanted to make a sign too. I used magnetic sheets and awesome letters from the amazing Megan - she just added them to the Basic Brights Ultimate Bundle yesterday!

they will look better in my class then on my fridge - but some days I could use it at home too!!

Also I made a prayer jar. Lately I have been asked to say a prayer for people and I try my very best to remember everyone but sometimes it is hard. So I made a really quick prayer jar. I took an old Mason jar, some see through labels, stones, shells and a candle. I printed off some words that I wanted (couldn't find stickers that would work and I do not have a Cricut - yet). I put in a shell or stone in for everyone that I am praying for - I even labelled some of the stones. Now I just light the candle and say a prayer for everyone inside!

    1. You just made me laugh, Nick. So true. So true!

      Loving it all! Prayer jar is adorable. I have many extra stones from the $ store....excellent use for those.

  8. I have to ask you a question. I actually found the letters today to spell out NOISE and as I went to purchase them, my husband stopped me and said "you really want to give them that many chances to be more quiet?" They have to be silent after 5 letters? Is this how you have used it? Perhaps I don't fully understand how to implement the use of this system in the classroom. Can you explain to me how you have used it?

  9. Love your idea of a prayer jar! I think I'll make one to use with my boys.

    Okay, magnetic sheets? How smart are you? Love that idea.

  13. Thanks for your clip board re-do instructions. I just finished my first attempt at a Mickey Mouse one for me next year. I love it! Thanks for sharing that you found the idea from Jessica at Literacy Spark. I am off to thank her next! I also like the prayer jar. I teach at a Catholic School so I think I will make one for my classroom. Great ideas!

    1. Thanks Kathy. Those instructions really helped me get them right this time. I think a prayer jar for your class would be great - maybe with a flameless candle :)
