Monday Made it...almost done!

My room is almost ready, can't wait to get those pictures up (still didn't remember my camera-ugg!), and professional development started today! Here are a couple of things I worked on this week......

Remember this pin???

I posted about how I wanted to make one this summer....and so here is my version

I didn't exactly follow the tutorial, I didn't want to sew that many little loops so I just ran the thread through the ribbon like this.....
then wrapped each strand of ribbon around a wreath I picked up at the Dollar Tree! I also added a larger ribbon and bow for hanging. It took 10 rolls of ribbon to cover the wreath well. I hot glued on the wooded flower I got from Walmart and modge podged on a "M" sticker! The whole thing cost $12 to make!

I finally finished my classroom "rules" or expectations....Inspired by this pin

Here's mine......
I used the same ribbon I hung the wreath with and added a cute pink birdie from Walmart
My expectations are simple, Be respectful, Be responsible, Be safe, I added cards to further explain each of those three and I've found that anything a student does can fit into one of those categories. The final card has my name on it and I have everyone in my class agree to follow the rules and sign the poster. I remind them when things are going to far that they pledged to do these 3 things and let them know which one they are breaking.

Here's the cards if anyone wants to use them
