Monday Made It: Time to Get Down to Business!

Happy Monday Friends,
It's that day again...time for a Monday Made-It with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics.
I decided that this week it was time to get down to the nitty gritty and really start focusing on the little things that need to get done for my classroom!! So here is what I worked on this week:
I made these table signs for my table buckets (Schoolgirl Style Inspired!)

This is my teacher binder that I put together for organizational purposes:

I bought the kit from Jessica Pollard. I absolutely love it!!! She has an assortment of themes if you are looking for one!
I made this lightbulb stress relief bucket idea that I found from Mrs. Plum at There's No Place Like Second Grade:

I also made these rules from Christie at First Grade Fever to hang in my classroom!!
Aren't these the cutest?!?!

I made these birthday straw balloons for my students for next year. The balloons are from Melissa Freshwater!

And...I made these signs for my transportation clothespin ribbons inspired by pinterest!

Whew let me tell you, I am on overload right now. It's crazy how many things I need to get done before school starts & I've been working on things ALL summer! With that being said, I do feel like I have accomplished a lot for my classroom with this Monday Made It!! :)
That's about all for today!! Join me tomorrow for some more fun! :)
Have a Marvelous Monday,


  1. I really like your teacher keeper! I have been working on my binder but I am no way near being finished.

  25. I thought my craftyness had gotten slightly out of hand this summer, but I am glad to see that I am not alone in my printing/cutting/laminating silliness. (I also got the teacher keeper set in the ocean theme and LOVE it!)

  26. Busy busy lady this week! Love all your crafts, they turned out great! The bday balloons are definitely next on my list... I just need to find some cheap crazy straws! :)
