I am linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for my first Monday Made It.
Monday Made It #1 (for the classroom): I found this great football-themed bulletin board paper at the teacher supply store. We use Accelerated Reader at my school and I am going to use this board to track each student's AR points for the quarter. I attached a ribbon to each "5-yard line" and the students will move their football clothespin at 5-point increments. The whole project cost less than 10 dollars and I hope that it will motivate my students to keep reading.
Monday Made It #2 (for the classroom): I have been using Rick Morris's (from New Management) classroom sign language posters in my classroom for the past two years and I love them! This year I decided to make my own posters based completely on the ASL alphabet.
Monday Made It #3 (for home): I have pinned three different versions of a magnetic makeup board, and I finally decided to make my own. I took a shortcut and bought a black magnetic dry erase board and just decorated the frame with ribbon. II bought the board, ribbon, and monogrammed metal container at Michael's for a total of $15 by using their great 40% coupon. I love that it keeps all of my makeup at arms-reach, organized, and looks pretty.
