I'm pretty sure this is my last Monday Made It before I have to start getting in school mode. It's been a fun but fast summer. We're going to Montana and Los Angeles for 10 days so I'll be missing the last Monday Made Its before the 2014-2015 school year begins. Thanks Tara for hosting my favorite linky party of all times :) I've had fun making new items for my class this summer.
I had so much fun making a ribbon wreath that I just couldn't stop. I also made one for Halloween which happens to be one of my favorite holidays.
Directions : Buy a Styrofoam wreath, cute ribbon, and straight pins. Use a solid color ribbon to wrap around your wreath and then cut your ribbon into about 2 to 3 inch strips. Then you create a loop and stick them to the wreath with the push pins.
My next Monday Made It was a tpt product that I've been dying to make. I don't know about you but the students in my class LOVE cheers. We do Kagan cheers, Dr. Jean cheers and now Becca's classroom cheers from Foxwell Forest.
Each cheer is adorable. There are 24 cheers in all. I know the benefits of classroom praises and cheers so I just can't wait to start these!
Does this even count for a Monday Made It? I sure hope so because its simple yet effective. I love how easy it is to add border and a flower to an empty spaghetti glass jar.
I made these free learning scales last year but used them horizontally across a white board. This year I'm going to try using either clothespins or sticky notes. I also made some other styles for classes that don't have a bee theme.
Last but not least I read a cute blog and found this awesome reflection idea Mrs. Harris at a Classy Collaboration . These reflection baskets will serve as great visual reminders for students to become more self-reflective and accountable for their individual learning. Read her blog post to see how she will incorporate the self reflection into her classroom. I know I will be spending a lot of time at the beginning of the year discussing learning goals and progression scales. I actually have a two day inservice next week on this HOT topic.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week.
