I created this cute wreath for the library door. (I made it out of an old book. Those are rolled up strips of the pages from a book that was weeded this summer.) The only problem is now I'm afraid the kids will mess with it as they stand in line outside the library. My door is right at the main entrance and almost all the kids walk past. Hmmmm. Maybe I'll hang it inside the library. That means I can go back to Hobby Lobby for another wreath idea! I've been wanting a red one from burlap ribbon.
When I was at Hobby Lobby last weekend, I found these cute little tins on clearance. Whipped up some cute little labels and now I have new pencil boxes.
I thought I was finished with my Monday Made It's until I saw Amy's blog over at Middle School Minions. I saw her "What is Mrs. Finley Reading" sign and made one for my library. During the school year, I'm always advising/conferencing with students about their reading goals. After reading Amy's post I decided it was real important for my students to view my reading goals and accomplishments. (Thank you, Amy! LOVED your idea.)
I start back Thursday so I need to finish my book stack and the last couple projects for the library. My good friends in the county to my south are back today. As we say in the South, "Bless Their Hearts".
Head over to Tara's blog 4th Grade Frolics for more great Monday Made It's.
