Hey everyone! Happy MMI Early. I had to post this early to make sure this video works because I won't have time to mess with it in the morning. Before I share my made its, I just had to share this video I took today! My husband and I went for an early morning walk on the beach. You could see several turtle nests marked off with orange tape.....well as we were walking I saw 3 people that had turtle patrol shirts on. One was digging and I saw eggs next to her so I asked if I could please take a pic. Then all of the sudden she started pulling baby sea turtles out of the ground!!! A raccoon had gotten into the next....it was what they called "a surprise nest" the only way they found it was by the tracks of some of the babies. They were just precious!!! Because there were so many, they had to release them 5 at a time along the beach and asked us to watch and make sure they made it to the water and that no one would come along and step on them. I cannot put into words how AMAZING and what a true blessing it was for us to witness!!! Such an awesome morning:) Hope you enjoy the video!
Now on to Monday Made Its......I almost didn't have any and was going to post (repost) my classroom...lol. I finally came up with a couple.
A little while back I bought these cute door hangers from Joanne at Head Over Heals for Teaching.
Then I forgot I bought them....ever do that???? Anywho, remembered and printed the black and white ones on colored cardstock. (There are also colored ones in the set with many other door hanger options....too cute!!)
My kiddos will be so excited to get these:) We did our "I PICK" book lesson and Read to Self launch last week, so they are all about their reading:)))
My next MMI are my labels for our reading response notebooks (different from their reading response journals that are for homework:)
My last made it is my new........
These are the little "cookie slips" they can fill out and put in the cookie jar any time:)
So there you have it!
Now, I do have an announcement to make......this will be the last WEEKLY MMI for the summer. After this I am going back to once a month, on the second Monday of each month:) The second Monday because I so want to do my bud Farley's Currently and haven't been able to:(
I hope you got lots of wonderful ideas this summer and continue to create and link up:) Thank you to each and every one of you for linking up and for all the bloggy love throughout the summer:) It has been a blast!!!
