Monday Made It A Week Late {Small Group Light}

I know Tara has gone back to monthly Monday Made It post, but I didn't get a chance to link up last week because I couldn't find the USB cord for the camera.  :(

Today is my first official day back to work...bye bye Summer Break!  I have been working in my room and will post pictures soon...still a mess in some corners!  For today's Monday Made It I wanted to share with you my new small group classroom management tool.

Don't you hate it when you are working with a student or small group and interrupted by other students, or even other teachers?  I recently saw a pin where a teacher used a touch lamp and wrote "Busy!" around the base.  I decided to make one for myself and add a color and vinyl to mine!

This was a SUPER easy and cheap project to make!  Speaking of saving money what have you picked up so far during the TpT Back to School Sale?  I have been happily surprised to see that my new Science Interactive Notebooks for Magnets and Electrical Charges are flying off the virtual shelves!


  1. What a neat idea! I picked up a light to use for this purpose, but I hadn't considered decorating it any. I may have to give this a try!

  2. I tried using a red light but they still interrupted. I am going to wear a tiara!

  3. Love the light! I used to buy headbands at Target for each season and would wear those. If I had one on I was unavailable. Problem with that was...I would forget about it and wear it all over school all day. I could never figure out why people were staring, pointing fingers and laughing at me. After a while I just started doing it on purpose with the "I'll show them I'm just cool" mentality!

  5. Neat idea!! Thanks for sharing how you did it!! I just pinned it (hope that's ok) on a new board (Busy with students, don't interrupt).
