Monday Made It and Some Freebies(Yay!)

Yikes! This summer is slipping away from me! I've been going to school two days a week for the last two weeks, and I definitely have the Back to School itch! Fortunately, many Pinterest-Inspired crafts have been keeping me busy! I'm so excited that some of the bigger DIYs are done so I can share them with you!


First, I finally got to make my very own crate seats!! I really wanted to make them last summer but couldn't find any fabric that I loved, and I finally found some! I've decided to do my classroom in blue, green, turquoise, and a teensy bit of yellow.  Here are my crate seats, which, by the way, were not cheap. I was a little disappointed that I had to pay $35 for my wood (when I didn't even need 1/3 of the sheet) and they could not give me a teacher discount! I did save a little money by using a foam mattress pad, though. They turned out so cute I'm going to try and forget my sticker shock. :) Oh, and the guided reading shape icons were a Pinterest idea, too. If you'd like to download mine, just click the image of them.




Next up, are my READ letters. I just bought some white letters at Joann's (yay for not having to paint them) and Mod-Podged (or as I like to say, Modge-Podged) my fabric onto them. I think they turned out pretty cute! And, I love how they look above my freshly painted shelf, Binder-ized Files, and new guided reading drawer labels!


Last, but not least, I am super-excited to share my biggest and most time-consuming project of the summer. While painting my rusty classroom bookshelf (shown freshly white, above), I found this little baby in what my favorite janitor likes to call the "furniture graveyard" (this is also known as a loading dock where all of the misfit classroom furniture pieces go).


It was a little dirty and banged up, but with a little sanding, paint, and a lot of patience (I didn't imagine taping chevrons would be so hard!!), here is my new "Celebration Seat!" I think it is beautiful, and I cannot wait to invite students to sit on it for their birthdays and when they share their published writing!



Besides crafting, I've been working on some other things for my classroom, and one is a freebie for you! Here are my new focus wall headers--I included 7 designs, so hopefully there is one that will work for you! Click the picture to download them for free!


Here are the other goodies I've been working on...click the picture to check them out at my TPT store! Have a great week!

  19. I just found your darling blog! I love that desk you made. DARLING!! I love the freebie. I want to check out the hand signals. Those would be so nice instead of in the middle of teaching you ask a question and a child raises their hand to go to the bathroom. Happens all the time in my class :)

  58. Masks are only to be used by people in a region experiencing an outbreak, health care workers treating patients, and people who are experiencing flu-like symptoms. That being said, if you are sick and are experiencing flu-like symptoms, talk to your health care provider for guidance and best practices for your unique case. A mask could potentially help avoid the spread of the virus from you to others.
