I'm back...after a VERY long hiatus! First, I was pregnant and too tired to blog and then I was on maternity leave and didn't have anything to blog about. So, here I am, a few months away from returning to the classroom. I've been busy catching up on my blog stalking and coming up with fresh ideas for the upcoming school year. Today, I'm linking up with Fourth Grade Frolic's Monday Made It to showcase a couple of projects I completed on the weekend.
Project #1: Filing Cabinet Revamp
I bought a used filing cabinet for $3.50 and used contact paper and some duct tape to pretty it up. I still haven't decided if it's coming with me to my new classroom or becoming a permanent fixture in my den.
Project #2: Clip Chart Hall of Fame
I used First Grade Glitter and Giggles' free download, mounted it onto some scrapbook paper, put it into a document frame, and hot glued matching ribbon to the back. I plan to "retire" clips to the Hall of Fame, once a student has reached the top of the chart five times. If you aren't familiar with the clip chart behaviour management system, you can read more about it HERE.
