It's Monday Made It Time Again!!

I have been super busy this week so I didn't get anything big done but I've got a couple of things I made to share with all of you!

First one, super simple........
I picked up this cute bowl in the picnic section at target for $3! I added a ribbon and a cute button (it's a scrap-booking brad so it clamped around the ribbon easily) and there you have it!! I have a question jar that my students draw from as an opening activity when they enter the room, there are several questions inside each person gets one question and answers it in their journal then we discuss them all as a group. Last year I used random containers to do this and sometimes I just put them on the table for them, this will give them a go to place to grab their question and get started!! And it looks so cute!!

Next up, another easy one...
I am sure you've all seen these and/or made them yourself! I've been making them for a couple of years now! I used some Boho Bird stickers from Carson Dellosa to match my theme, the alphabet and flower stickers are from Wal-Mart. If you haven't done this, all you have to do is peel the labels off the front and back of your hand sanitizer bottle, use some Goo-Gone to get rid of the stickiness left over, then decorate the bottle with stickers, and tie on a little ribbon!

I was really wanting to change my calendar next year. It was geared towards the younger grades and didn't function as well as I wanted for my older students so I did an update, created the month headers and numbers in my new theme and here is my third project.....

I uploaded the file to Vistaprint and had my headers printed on a large poster! They turned out wonderfully!! I used the round numbers and cut out just the center then glued them onto glass bubbles. I added a magnet to the back of them. I wanted mine smaller so I could still write in the squares of the calendar, and easy to change up each month! You can download these for free HERE! I included round and square numbers so you can choose the ones that work best for you!

Finally I finished up my new book baskets! I love the new colors and can't wait to get them in the classroom and see what it looks like all put together!! Here they are.......
I love the new labels, and wanted to share them too! You can download them free HERE!

I love making things to help other teachers in their classroom but I don't always have time! I have had several requests lately that I am working on but I just wanted to say that the book labels are what I use in my classroom, I know there are going to be some you want that aren't here, and I just can't do custom orders right now :( I have however included blank labels so you can customize your own if you would like! Thanks for understanding!! Hopefully the ones that I have created will work for you :)

Don't forget to stop by Tara's Blog and check out what everyone else is making, there are some amazing teachers out there making amazing things!!! I love seeing them each week!
Now I am off to work on more products coming your way soon! I hope you all have a happy Monday!! Thanks for stopping by!
