Happy Monday Made It everyone!
Today I have one classroom made it and 2 home made its:)
My classroom made it I am so excited about. I have been working on this for a couple of weeks.....what I'm not excited about are all the poopy pics I took:( I seriously need some Iphone Photo taking lessons from the Fab Farley....hint, hint......I stink!!! So sorry about these pics....I will try to take some better ones today and change these out.
Anyway, 4th graders in Florida have to take a state writing test. Most of my kiddos this year are pretty good at the basics....what I call the "bones" of their stories. That's it....bones.....no meat:/
That is something most of them seriously need to work on. I went to a great writing training a few weeks ago and was inspired to create this interactive bulletin board set. (it's 20% off until midnight tonight:)
Included in this set are 9 overused/boring words that my kiddos have beat to death....so for each of those, there are 12 fab substitutes:) There are also 12 sensory words for each of the 5 senses to help make writing more descriptive.
AND 12 transitional phrases and 12 onomatopoeias:) (plus some blank pencils to add your own words)
I can't wait to introduce this to my kiddos today!!!
My game plan is for them to use this AFTER their first draft....when they can reread and circle the boring words and then try to find substitutes.
So that's my biggie for my classroom:)
My other 2 made its were for me:) (I may or may not have posted the planter pics already.....my Instragram life and blog tend to blur together at times:/
I love my garden and spending time outside (and don't do it enough because I get caught up with the busy disease:/)
My last made it is a necklace I made with supplies from my fave Hobby Lobby. My sister sent me a pic of a cross necklace and I LOVED it but didn't love the $72 price tag......so I went to Hob Lob and found parts and made my own for less than $10!!! Gotta love that:)
I used to design jewelry.....a long time ago. Forgot how much I enjoyed it....need to start taking a little more time for me:)
So there ya have it:) Can't wait to see what ya'll have been up to:) I am in need of some new ideas:)
