Monday Made It + TPT sale time!!

Happy Monday Friends,
I'm getting ready to venture into my classroom tomorrow! EEEK!! This year I am moving to a new school, so my classroom is starting from scratch. It is such an exciting, yet nerve wracking time!
Today I'm linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It!!
First I made some decorative items for my classroom. I made this "READ" decoration that I am going to hang using Command hooks. I found the zebra plates at Hobby Lobby and the self adhesive letters at Walmart!!
Next up, I made a sign for my classroom door! I bought a canvas at Hobby Lobby. I found a zebra stencil at Hobby Lobby also and used a black paint pen to do the stenciling. Then, I made a name tag from pink cardstock and letter stickers, added some gems, and VOILA! 
I also made my helper chart for my rock star classroom!!! I couldn't find a helper chart that I loved. Then the idea popped into my head one day. Why not take individual pictures of my students and make them into "backstage passes". Then I will hang them under each job.

This is an example of a badge using my daughter Summer!
 This helper chart is EDITABLE & now in my TPT store!! Click on the cover page above to take you there!
I also created & ordered this banner from Vistaprint. Since our school is doing a rock star theme, I am going to hang this on the board for Meet the Teacher. Folks, I am IN LOVE with this sign!!!
Lastly, I have been feverishly working on my Rockin' Through My Alphabet pack! I am going to use this as a fun review for my firsties the first few weeks of school. This pack includes a poster for each letter of the alphabet, a QR code that links to a song for each letter, a list of songs with links if you do not choose to use QR codes, and a workbook to reinforce students' knowledge on their letters and sounds.

Also I'm sure you've heard about the BIG back to school TPT sale!!!
