Monday Made It-July 1st!

Hi y'all!
I posted late last week about my fabulous menu board. I'm still loving it and how organized it's keeping my meals and grocery shopping! I'm so excited to have my mojo back and link up with the fabulous Tara from 4th Grade Frolics! 
While I was making the menu board, I made a chore chart for Ella and an "important notes" board for my classroom! I got all of the materials at Hobby Lobby with the exception of the Magnetic Adhesive roll- that was from Wal Mart.

 This was seriously one of the easiest projects I've made in a long time! Basically you just wrap the sheet metal in fabric, and waaahla! A magnetic board! I snazzed Ella's chore chart up a little bit with ribbon and the bow but when I tried to add some to my board I felt it looked a little silly. This time I kept it simple!

If you're interested in the labels, you can grab them HERE.

A little bit about the chore chart:
Ella's "must do" chores are in blue. She must do them every day. It's her job to do these things and she doesn't get an allowance to do them- it's her part of being the family. The "can do" chores are in yellow. She can only do the yellow chores AFTER her blue chores are finished and we do those chores together on Sunday {family cleaning day! woohoo} After she finishes them, she gets a quarter for each one she completes. This way she can take ownership of her responsibilities {last night after cleaning the sink she said "but I don't want to get toothpaste on the sink" while brushing her teeth. Hallelujah!} 
I'm liking the system so far, and I like it a lot better than the sticker charts we've done in the past because what do you do when it's all full? With this chart I hope to incorporate a little money saving and spending strategies into the mix :)

Now, head back over to Tara's linky and check out all the other fabulous Made It's this week!

  13. Both are adorable! I need to check out those metal sheets. I have no magnetic surfaces in my room except my filing cabinets. Need to fix that. :)

  18. Great tips everybody. Thanks! I even have a giant colorful sign on my schoolroom that claims 'If not Pine Tree State, who? If not currently, when?'. I refer the kids to the current whenever there's a large number to scrub up, or employment to be done.job chart It's nice to listen to them say it to themselves typically, as they devour a born pencil or one thing (that wasn't even theirs...wow!). I additionally love the method you visit your students as 'friends'. may strive it....
    Thanks!!
