It's time for Monday Made It and this will be a short one! I love that Monday Made It motivates me to get into my room and get stuff done, but I feel like I could do so much better! I used to be so crafty and now there is just so little time...sigh....
I made a new job chart and hung it up today. I say "new" but I've actually never created my own. I've always done "helping hands" that were simply little hands I bought at Walmart and moved around a chart. They stopped selling the hands a couple of years ago so I was out of luck. I actually cut out my own one year and last year I used Erica Bohrer's helping hands chart. After 8 years of "Helping Hands" I was ready to change it up!
My plan is to have small clothespins with student's picture on them to move down the chart. This is the first year I am NOT doing a job for every child. I will let you know how that goes! Last year I had so many kids that had a job but really nothing to do. I am hoping this will make it more "important".
My second MMI is courtesy of the fabulous Ashley Hughes. I wanted a fun welcome sign for the first weeks of school and I found it! I love how it turned out!
Simple....yet so cute! It fits perfectly over the window at the front of my room. I hope my kiddos feel "welcome" when they see it!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are still enjoying summer. I saw parents posting back to school pictures this morning on FB...ugh! It's almost here! 2 more weeks for me! :) (I think, honestly I haven't even looked at a calendar. I had to ask my daughter what the day was today!)
Happy Teaching! Heather
