Monday Made It

I am linking up with Tara and her fabulous linky once again. My list keeps growing with all of the great ideas everyone posts weekly. 


I used zebra duct tape and wrapped popsicle sticks for my mystery person jar. For those who do not know what that is, I pull a random stick from the jar daily and never announce who it is. All day long we watch this student for good choices. If they make good choices, they receive a prize at the end of the day.  It worked extremely well last year! 

 I went on a dollar tree hunt for these green bins that fit perfectly on my bookshelf. It will hold my personal books that I read to the students at large group time. I thought they needed some pizazz so I added the chevron tape. I really like how it turned out!

I found this on pinterest and decided I needed one ASAP for my classroom. Pre-K students have a hard time communicating how they feel instead of tattling. I am hoping this chart will help. The chart is just a picture on pinterest without a link so whoever made this kudos to you! My version is below. 


At the end of the school year we threw all of our dry erase boards out and discussed going to Lowes to buy the dry erase board. Well when everyone posted their versions on Monday Made It I was inspired to follow through with cute duct tape too. The teal color is a scotch tape and it doesn't stick really well. The corners keep coming off. The bottom was my favorite. It was a small roll of duct tape and worked perfectly! 

Hope everyone has a great Monday. My cheerleading camp was cancelled an hour ago so I can enjoy my Monday at home working on school stuff. I am trying to not be MAD about the fact that the AD scheduled something in the time frame the cheerleaders were allowed to have the gym. Have a great Monday!
