Good morning bloggy friends!
So....as I was looking at my list of my classroom "must-do crafts" I realized that I have completed every thing on my list this summer.... except for those crate seats. Ya'll they are daunting me! I want some sooooo bad but I really don't want to make them! Ha! I don't know why! I have pretty much all the materials except for the wood and foam.
So, in avoidance, I was looking at my pin board trying to figure out something I really wanted to make this week for Monday Made it when I came across this pin:
The link was broken but it took me to Tonya's Treats for Teachers so I contacted Tonya to ask if it was hers and it is! But it's from an old blog that she no longer has so there is no link to it. I say she should run that post again on her new blog! :)
Anyway - I made my own little "book nook" poster for my kids to choose from when reading to self and partners.
Oh and I added glitter to those snazzy little clothespins! LOVE them!
Just put a little Mod Podge on, glitter up, let dry and add a top layer of Mod Podge so the glitter doesn't fall off as bad. Easy peasy!
I'm going to use the poster when doing my check-ins for Daily 5. If they are reading to self or a partner, as I call them they will put a clothespin on their reading spot. Once the spot has a clip on it, no one else can take the spot. Hopefully it will keep down bickering and kids trying to sit a little TOO close to their buddies! ;)
I'm linking up with Tara for her ever-so-fabulous linky! I'm so sad the summer is almost gone! EEEEEK! Only a few more weeks until this gal is back to school!
Have a fabulous Monday friends!
