Monday Made It {Painting & Digital Creation}

Happy Monday!!
 
I'm sad to report that this is my last Monday before school starts. I have such a mixture of emotions as my summer winds down and I am no longer a stay at home mom.
 
Moving on to Monday Made It with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics! 
The first Monday Made It I am going to share is my favorite this week! At my new school, most teachers have their name hanging outside of their classroom. Some have it on foam, some have it on canvas, etc. I found a canvas painting on Etsy, but could not justify spending $50 on it. So, I created my own and love the outcome! It's not perfect by any means, but I love it. 
Once I get to school, I'll use my staple gun to attach this ribbon to it to hang on a hook outside of my classroom.
 
My second Monday Made It was not made by me, but it was created and shared by Ladybug's Teacher Files. I printed her CAFE headers, laminated, and cut them out to go onto my bulletin board. I love the colors!
 
 
This past week I organized my file cabinet into 4 categories based on my standards. I created a label to attach to the front of the file cabinet.
 
I also created new book bin labels for my classroom library. I need to print and laminate a few more as I just purchased almost 100 book for my room from thrift stores.
 
Lastly, I created a Spelling header that I'll use with a Spelling display and Writing labels that will go onto 3 drawers where I will store student writing. I'll be teaching 3 groups of students since we are departmentalized.
Have a great day, friends!

  2. You did a great job on you canvas!! I can't imagine the one from Etsy would be any cuter. I feel for you having to report back to school so soon. If I hadn't changed districts, I would be reportig back next week too.

  4. We must've been on the same wavelength of thought this week with the name canvas. I am loving yours so much better than mine. I might need to make a new one like yours!!!!!

  6. Just got my check for $500.

    Sometimes people don't believe me when I tell them about how much you can get filling out paid surveys online...

    So I show them a video of myself getting paid $500 for paid surveys.
