I love summer!!! I also love Monday Made It and it happens a lot more in the summer than during the school year so I'm thrilled to link up with Tara to share my Monday Made It(s). Swing on by and check out her weekly link up.
I have made
some okay several visits to Target lately and I came across this gem. Multi colored chalkboard clips...I loved them but the colors just wouldn't do for my classroom theme.
I figured with a little paint and a chalkboard pen I could change these up fairly quickly.
This idea is not new by any means: I've seen Hadar from Miss Kindergarten and Kristen from Easy Teaching Tools use this in the past. I just thought it would be fun to paint these and make them 'fit' my theme. I'm excited to have this extra organization for my parent helpers.
The second little craft I made was also inspired by the Dollar Spot at Target. I saw these very cute library cards and knew I had to do something with them. I have several books from my mama ( circa the 80's ) and she added these library cards so her students could check out her books. She was uber organized ~ I only got some of those traits of hers #typebgirlhere
I grabbed them but struggled with what to do with them. I didn't think I would use them in my classroom but then I just knew. I
love actually ADORE my librarian! She is a rock star servant like no ones business. She will do anything for you without even asking so I knew I would make her a cute little banner for her space. And...we have a lunch date this summer so I'll give it to her then. All I did was purchase these tags, red twine and the sticky alphabet letters. Here's how it turned out:
It's simple and that's perfect for her because she's a simple, sweet lady and I know she will just love it! What are you up to this summer? I can't wait to see your crafts!
