Monday Made It & a Thank You!

I found out this weekend that I won a drawing for a $10 TpT gift certificate.  Needless to say I was so thrilled.  I bought the most amazing goodies with the gift certificate and cannot wait to use them!  Thank you so much to Lauren over at Kinder-Friends.  If you haven't been to her blog, head on over and check it out!

I realized that it's Monday, so it must be time to share what I've been making :) 

Project #1 - Ruler Container
I already used one of these containers for my brain breaks.  I went through my ribbon supplies and found a piece of ribbon that looks like a tape measure.  I had just enough to go around the can one time with about 1-in. of extra ribbon.  I just knew it would be a good accent for my ruler container.  I used my Cricut to cut the letters onto yellow paper.  I used black pen to create a stitching effect on the border of each letter.  Most of my rulers are at school, but this gives you an idea of the size of the container.

Project #2 - Family Communication Binder

Inside I have about 28 dividers. They are numbered so they can be re-used each year.  I have a page kept in the front as a handy reference for my student numbers. 

Behind each divider I keep the following log page:

I also keep the student information sheet that the families fill out at the beginning of the year as well as the permission form I give out to place student photos on my classroom website.

In the back I dedicate a divider to my volunteer information sheets.  When I have a special project or request needed, I can just pull out the sheets and find a helper :)

Project #3 - Math Workshop Binder

This one is still in progress.  I will be posting more about this in the near future.  Here is a sneak peek:

Head on over to Tara's blog and see what everyone else has made this week :)
