Monday Made It (July 21st 2014)

Time is ticking over here! I'm frantically trying to finish up all my projects so that I can get some much needed time in my new room. AGHHHHH...a teacher's to-do list is never done! At least I have Tara's linky to keep me on track! Seriously how did we stay motivated without this link up?!?!

First up I have been working really hard on making new classroom decorations. I finally bundled these products together and you can enter to win your own bundle at the bottom of this post!! 

I bought these cute trash cans at the dollar store a month ago & finally made coordinating labels. I love having a trash bucket at each table when doing crafts. It keeps the mess manageable and the students responsible. My trash helper is in charge of emptying the buckets into the recycling bin each afternoon. Then on Friday they get to dump the recycling bin into the school bin!

Last year I had two whiteboards in my classroom so I used the back one for my word wall. I loved the fact that I could easily write the words at anytime. However, my new room only have one whiteboard so I decided its time to join the Pinterest craze and make the interactive ribbon word wall. I am very exciting to get into my room and hang these against the black bulletin board!!!!

My last made it is for my table signs. This project isn't really complete because I still need to dangle them from my tissue pom-poms that are in my classroom. BUT printing and cutting them is still an accomplishment! Haha!!

Now it's time for you to win your very own Bright Chevron Bundle....just enter below! The winner will be announced on next weeks Monday Made It!! Good Luck!! You can click on the image to preview the product on TPT!
