monday made it! busy girl!

it's monday made it time!!

Oh, woe is me!
I wasn't sure I was ever going to finish. I always sometimes seem to let projects get a little carried away. But I finally got Vintage Chalkboard decor bundle uploaded!
And it's half price today!
If you pick it up, I'd love to hear what you think!

another file {and one that I adore!} is my new reading rotation board.

I won't get into this too much because I'll post about it later, but I went with a fun stache theme for the board! It includes rotation choices, numbers, and student name labels for the group signs and even their notebooks! So excited...but the bad news is I ran out of ink last night!
because I was printed these...

these are the whole brain subway art rules that I shared last week. They needed to be framed...So frame I did! I found these wooden frames for $2 each at Michaels. They do not have glass, just plastic inserts so I feel fine about hanging them above my board. I LOVE them! 

I always keep boxes in the garage for just this reason! The spray paint is called ocean breeze and it's also from michaels. It cost more than the frames! 

Another project is super long-awaited. I finally made my R-E-A-D letters to hang in my room! I knew I wanted a mix of patterns because that's just how I am. I finally got a scrapbook pack that suited me just fine! I love them too! The letters were $1.99 each and I used my 40% off for the scrapbook paper. There's a lot left over!

I also made these binder covers for my kiddos' communication binders this year. Our school's theme is a racing theme {not my thing} but Nikki makes it oh so cute! These are listed {as is} free on TpT!

I technically did not make this, but I had to do all the printing and stapling! This was my phonics focus board, but I neglected it and I loved the frame on it too much to take it down. So now it's my strategy focus board! I loved Amy's idea of putting a little something next to our current strategy. I may have a few bird board decorations I could spare! And I need to realign it a little. I printed two to a page so they would all fit. 
Strategy posters from Teri
frame from Hobby Lobby and I used velcro to attach to the paper and I also stuck push pins on the upper corners. 
lime green fadeless paper from Mardel {I've never seen the Lime green in a store so I order it}
Chevron border in teal from Creative Teaching Press

happy crafting!

  2. I just have to say that your blog is fantastic and you've earned a new follower :) Anywho, I love your idea to frame your whole brain printables...very cute!


  3. I like the idea of having a reading strategies bulletin board that you can refer to each time you introduce a new skill, then keep referring to all year. I may have to make one of those too!
