I'm back!!! I have missed the past few Monday Made It due to family visits, wedding stuff, and getting ready for the new year but along the way I have definitely been crafting and storing it all up and now can share a few (I'm saving some in case I can't craft one week but can still link up, lol). This week I'm linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics to show you more of my Crafty Clipboards and my new Shh-arperners.
Crafty Clipboards Part 2:
Here are my next nine clipboards that I will be using to showcase my student's amazing work! Click here to check out the first ten and how I created them. I had to wait a while to create the rest because I started to notice that they all were beginning to have the same design and I didn't want that. I'm only so creative! LOL My favorite of this batch is the plaid with the circular numbers, but I do like the nod to my college, UCF, and my background, the blue jeans ;o) I think I might even go back to the blue jeans one and put white stitching around the edges with a paint marker.
One of my pet peeves is when my students are working so quietly or trying to get started and all the sudden their concentration is broken by the sound of the electric sharpener! This year I am changing that! If it is quiet time in my classroom and our voices are off, then so are the electric sharpeners. "Well what do I do when I break my pencil?" Use the Shh-arpeners :o) I got the fun little box from Target's Dollar Spot and created the label in Word. Inside are all my hand held sharpeners that will stay in there. Click on the picture to get your copy of the label.
Tomorrow is my first official day back in the classroom and will be putting up my clipboards so I will soon post pictures of how they all look. You know me, as long as it looks like an explosion of color I'm loving it. It's funny because we are finishing up our registry for our wedding and I keep noticing how our home is very natural with warm colors and I think I would have a heart attack if this explosion of colors were in my house but in my second home I love it and wouldn't have it any other way!
