Monday Made It - January Edition!!

Happy New Year!  
Happy craftin' and planning as 
Christmas break has ended and the new year has started!

Leave it to me to put my craftin' off until the last dog gone minute!!!  
Thank the Lord for my amazing daughter!!!

Here we go with this month's Made Its:
Home Made It:
I actually got to do (or should I say Tay got to do) a home made it this month.
It is not done yet.......

I have had something like this pinned and on my to do list forever....LOVE the gray stripes 
BUT....it still needs something....some kind of embellishment....
any thoughts anyone????
Tried this.....
and this....liking this the best...

This is one possibility...still working on it, but LOVE the letter:)

Classroom Made Its:
Ok, didn't make these.....printed, laminated, and cut them out!
These adorable fractions centers are by the super sweet Holly at Fourth Grade Flipper!
Holly blessed me with these as a random act of Christmas kindness!
How lucky am I?
They are adorable beyond words and are going to be so great to use with my Math workshop!!  
Go check out the entire set (the pics are only half of them) at Holly's TPT store:)
 
Next classroom Made It:
I found the cutest little matte and shiny plastic hearts at Hobby Lobby and knew they
would be good for something.
Tay (my little helper) used a white paint pen and put numbers on some
for a fun, quick math center....pick hearts and multiply, add, subtract...whatevs...

She also made 2 sets of letters for a word work spelling activity.
Kinda fun, right?  Gotta squeeze in the fun whenever I can with the lovely state assessments heading at us:/

Next Made It:
I'm super excited about this math center activity I made....it took forever....not because it was all that difficult BUT because I was on my new computer and it is VERY different.......VERY!

The adorable pencil clip art is by 
She has super cute stuff!  I bought more...just haven't had the time to make more...lol...
next month's Made It:)
This set is for practicing and solving algebraic expressions.  Can't wait for my kiddos to
get to use this:)  There's lots of expressions and ways to use this.  
If you want to read more about it, you can check it out here TPT.

  3. I love your pencil and pads new math center!! Who doesn't need more practice with solving algebraic expressions?!? I was SO thrilled to see that you blogged about my fraction math centers! It is so crazy to see stuff that I made on other blogs. I have to say that you are a much more careful laminator than I am! haha! Thank you for sharing, friend:)
