Monday Made It

It is the last Monday of July!!  Only two weeks left of my summer vacation.  Thank goodness for Tara and her weekly Monday Made It.  I feel as though I am getting back into the swing of things and getting some stuff done.

My first "Monday Made It" inspiration this week came from Stories by Storie and her Parent Communication Binder.  Inside the binder is a tab for each student in the class. I am going to copy her management by numbering my tabs by the student's class number.  Behind each tab she keeps a parent communication log page, student information sheet, and permission to photo.  There is also a section for volunteers. My binder cover and spine came from Amy over at The Resourceful Room.

Next, I turned two old Pop Tart containers into my "Stamp It" Word Work Stations.  The idea to use containers came from The Meek Moose.  I am just thrilled that I didn't have to purchase a container.  Loved that I found something at home I wasn't using.  I just "modgepodged" the container to cover up the Pop Tart graphics.

Last, I used my cricut and made the Welcome sign that is to hang in between my room and my teammate.

The Winners of the giveaway were Mrs. Peggy P and Dana C.  Congratulations ladies.  Mrs. Peggy, please email me about the giveaway.
