Monday Made It - September 2012

Happy Labor Day!!!!

I am so happy that Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics has decided to continue the Monday Made It as a monthly event. I just love roaming around blogland and seeing what all the other teachers out there are making and doing in their classrooms. Don't you?

Because I love this so much, I am linking up this month for the Monday Made It.  My first item for this week is something that I have been seeing all over teacher blogs and Pinterest for weeks...but for some reason, this week when Nicole over at Rowdy in Room 300 posted her Monday Made It and I saw hers....well I just had to have some for myself! You can find Nicole's post HERE. Here is the inspiration photo from Nicole.
Here is my own READ letters for my classroom (well at least one of the classrooms that I have).

They are not as large as I would have liked....but I don't have a Michael's or a Hobby Lobby within 100 miles of I had to depend on Wal Mart and I was a very LUCKY girl to have gotten all of the letters needed. Don't laugh...all of you know what I'm talking about. You just can't depend on old Mr. Wal Mart and Dollar Tree doesn't have them!

Now on to my next creation....which obviously I didn't come up with. I saw these Jumbo Paperclip Bookmarks last week when MissT from Journey of a Substitute Teacher posted her Monday Made It. I knew when I saw them, I had to make some! They are just too adorable. Here is the original photo from Miss T.
I have only made three so far, because I can find my ribbon when I find the ribbon, I will finish off the other 5 jumbo paperclips that came in the package! Here are mine.

I feel the need to add, that after looking at Miss T's photo again, I will be going back and redoing the ribbon and using longer pieces....I just think it looks better!

Now for my third and final (finished) item for this Monday Made It.  First let me say you can all attest, this is not my idea. I know I've seen this all over Pinterest and on other teacher blogs. I even downloaded the a freebie off someone's blog to do this. But for the life of me, I cannot find any indication as to who the download came from nor can I find where I first saw the idea. So....if it is yours or you know whose it is....please let me know so I can amend this post and give them credit.

My Whole Class Journals (thanks to someone's hard work for the topic sheets.).

That does it for my Monday Made It. Now I can start hopping around and seeing what else I NEED to add to my crafty list for my classroom. I hope everyone has a fabulous week!

Happy Blogging & TEACHING!!!
