My Monday Made It, Week # 4

I am linking up this Monday with Tara's Monday Made It.

Next Monday we head back to work for Staff meetings and getting ready for the First Day of School on Wednesday, August 20th! I am soooo excited to meet my new 2nd grade kiddos! =)

This Monday I worked on adding my labels to the Save Folders that my kids will put any LA or Math work that needs to be finished. 

I also added labels to their Take Home Folders. They put their homework, school calendar, and any flyers/notes that need to go home in this folder that comes back every day.

My second Made It, were these cute goodie bags to give to each of my students on their First Day. I changed the little poem that I found on tpt by Miss Kindergarten's store for free. Click here for the link for her complete welcome back poem for free. 

Here are some pictures of my "Welcome Back" goodie bags:

Treats to go inside...eraser, bookmark, Smarties, pencil....

My shortened poem...

Welcome Back Goodie Bag...

26 Bags ready for the first day...=)

I added a little, black and white polka dot bow to my "Bucket Filling" Praise bucket, and made a new sign to hang up.
My kids can fill out a Praise Note, place it in the yellow bucket, and then we read them on Friday. Kids keep their Bucket Filling Praise Notes in their little envelope.

This week I have two Professional Development Days that I am attending. The one today was on Core Technologies to use with our 1:1 devices. It was AMAZING! I'm looking forward to receiving our Chrome books, and having my 2nd graders try some of the things I have been researching and learning about. 

On Thursday I'm attending a Math training day. I'm such a life long learner! =) I LOVE learning new things and trying them out. 
It's going to be a fun adventure this year. Enjoy the rest of your summer, or have a wonderful First Day if you are beginning soon.

My Monday Made It, Week #3

I am linking up with Tara this week for another Monday Made It!

I found this cute lamp, and added white buttons to the shade.  

And a cute, black and white polka dot bow...I LOVE how it looks. 

The second thing I have been working on is finishing all of my bulletin boards. I will post more of them when I show my classroom reveal. This board is my "Mrs. Finch's" board, where I share personal pictures and hang up some teacher gifts I have received throughout my teaching years.

Finally, I have been working on changing my white board into my "Writer's Workshop" board.

I created these "Writing Process" Posters using clipart from Creative Clips and Poppydreamz Digital Art

Here is my white board before...

And here it is after...

I love that my 2nd grade kiddos can move their numbered magnet underneath the "Writing Process" posters I made, so I know where they are in their writing.

My husband and I also went to Comic Con. It was my first time there, and it was so much fun!

I was able to get a picture of this creepy, little guy who kept following us... =)

This picture was when we came out of the Convention Center, so many people came to our beautiful city of San Diego!

Enjoy the rest of your summer!
