Monday Made It {Classroom Displays}

This week I have been busy with making items for my classroom. A few "Monday Made it" inspired :)

I used Mardi Gras beads and name tag holders to make these motivational necklaces.  Sarah from A Rocky Top Teacher created the tags and has them as a freebie on her blog.  Last Spring I picked up this M&M dispenser off a yard sale website and finally tried it out for erasers.  I wanted the label to be larger but it was difficult with the odd curved glass.  I plan to put polka dots to spruce it up.  

I use a Classroom Economy in my room as part of my classroom management, you can read about it HERE.  I normally have the students create their checkbooks in class, but I decided to have them prepared for them so all they need to do is decorate the front.

I printed, laminated, and cut out my Many Colored Classroom set. {I did this months ago, but never shared it.}  I still need to print out the matching behavior chart that is included in the set.

Finally, I printed, laminated, and cut out Diane's Welcome Banner {which she has on Sale right now}, and my How do you get home? chart.  I plan to use the Banner for my bulletin board outside my classroom.

There only a few more days to enter my Back to School Giveaway!  First prize is the Quietest Pencil Sharpener, second a surprise box of goodies mailed to you, and third prize is any three items from my TpT store.  Good Luck!

  3. Using the mardi gras beads was genius!

  4. How clever to use the mardi gras beads for lanyards to hold name tags! Love it and stealing! I've always wanted to make one of those eraser dispensers, but was wondering...does it really work? All of you made-its look great!
