Monday Made It

It's Monday Made It time again!  I am loving all of my creations today because they all have one thing in common:  rainbow chevron!  
{Monday Made It #1}

I was inspired by Clutter Free Classroom to create labels for my recycling bins.  We began a school-wide recycling program a few years ago and each classroom has two bins: one for paper and one for plastic.  I love my new labels!

I was also inspired (Clutter Free Classroom & Pinterest) to create crates for Writing portfolio's and library books.  I've never had the best system for students to return library books.  I've had students keep them and return them when we go to library.  I've had student turn them into a tote in the mornings, but the tote was too heavy and not easy to carry.  

Here are my Writing Portfolio and Library Book crates!  The crates were $3.00 at Big Lots.

When I saw Owl in a Vowel Tree post this chevron border on Instagram, I knew I had to get it.  It's $0.97 at Wal-Mart...super cheap and super cute!
There are 11 pennants on each banner.  I cut several off and made this READ banner to put in my classroom library.  I left one blank pennant on each side.

She also inspired me to create a Welcome banner for Open House/first day of school.  I love how it turned out!
