Monday Made It #2 & a FREEBIE

I am so pumped to be a part of this Monday Made It Blog link. It is so much fun showing off what I made for my classroom and then going to all the other blogs to see what everyone else is making for theirs! Photobucket 

The first thing I made to present this week is a door sign for my classroom. When you see this will immediately know that I got the idea from our favorite place to stalk.....Pinterest. The photo I pinned was from Nicole's blog Rowdy in Room 300

Here is mine.

I even used Nicole's idea about stuffing it with the plastic grocery bags. It works wonders. I never would have thought of that. Sometimes things just go....'swoosh'....right over my head.

I said in the title of my blog that I have a freebie...and I do.....if you want it. I'm pretty sure all of you are aware that Stephanie over at Teaching in Room 6 has posted the basics about her Reading Olympics. Well, I thought that sounded like something that I could do with my gifted/Talented students....since we do book studies...I thought this would be a little more fun! So I downloaded the brochures of Stephanie's and re-created them to work in my classroom. As I was writing the lesson plan, I had an idea about how I could have easy....instant verification as to where each student was in regards to the levels of the Reading Olympics. Yes...I know Stephanie provided us with a tracking sheet....and I will most likely use it....But, I need instant visualization. So....I created a wall hanging that I intend to have students put their clip on the level...this way...I can see where they are at an instant.

You can download this tracker for FREE here.

I made a couple other things...but haven't taken the I will post them next Monday!

Thanks for stopping by.

Until Next Time....Happy Blogging!!
