Monday Made It - August 5

Is it Monday again already?!?!?!?!
Last week flew by and wore me out.......I worked and worked in my classroom......I was going to do a classroom reveal today but....... have a few more things I want to do so
 STAY TUNED:)  I will be posting my classroom later this week:)

I revamped my T.O.T. binder to match my new colors:) You can read more about it here in my post from last year.
I will probably be adding a few more but don't have Lesson Plans because this year I am trying this...
This is my Erin Condren Teacher Planner.  This is new for me this year so we will see how it goes...
I am trying out the clip chart this year!  Pretty excited about it.  So, I needed clips for my kiddos:)  I decided to do numbers for the behavior chart because I am using them for so many other things:)  But of course I couldn't use the same numbers as my Homework Club......that would be too easy.....I had to add stress to my life and make new ones.....

The numbers are a freebie in my TPT if you want to grab a copy:)
This next cutie is not the whole thing.....I have an idea for my classroom door that I hope works and needed a bird so my sweet daughter made this one
Isn't she adorable?!?!?!?!
She looks a little cute anyway:)
That's it for'll have to come back later this week to see the finished product with this little bird (hoping my idea works) and my classroom reveal:)
While ya'll are linking up, I'll be working away and getting ready for open house....TONIGHT!!!
Grab my button and leave some love on the blogs you visit:)
Happy Monday!!!!

    Love Teaching Kids

  14. Aren't kids the best? My kids have been helping me get ready too, and I shared my son's creation as one of my Made-Its this week. So nice to have helpers! :-)

    Thanks for a great linky all summer long!

  15. I love your binders. I finished mine last week, and it made me feel like I had things "together" because for the first time in years, everything coordinated :)

    Literacy Without Worksheets

  16. Those are cute numbers! Thanks for sharing! My Monday-Made-It this week is behavior clips too. If you want to feel like you weren't quite so crazy for making new numbers for the clips, check out my post. That was some crazy time spent on clips!

    Good luck with Open House (and on a side note, I am somewhat jealous of this Open House thing everyone talks about - I won't see my kiddos until they are lined up the morning of the first day!)

    I just want to thank you for all of the wonderful ideas you've shared on MMI this summer! I'm so grateful that you're using the same classroom colors as I am (yay!) AND that you've so generously shared many of the things you've created as freebies...Thank you!!!

  23. Tara,
    Thanks for hosting this! I look forward to this linky all week and I even get myself motivated to finish projects just so I can post them on the link! LOL
