It is time for Monday Made It again! I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics to share what I have been up to! I have been busy again creating items for my home and classroom. Here is a peak at what I have been up to!
My first project was my favorite project that I have been working on. I am creating a homophone bulletin board for my classroom this year. I created a no sew bunting to go across the top of my bulletin board! This is my pretend bulletin board across the floor! I made a mini one and a large one. Click HERE to head over to grab a copy of the homophone word cards. I blogged about them on Friday's Five for Friday, as well.
My next project, I bought a chevron decoration set on TpT and used it to create the following items. It is a HUGE help to get these things backed, laminated, and cut NOW, instead of waiting until the fall. I prepped my new clock labels. (I left my old ones at my old school last year when I moved.) I prepped new bathroom passes. I am going to punch a hole in the top and string ribbon through, so these can be worn around the neck and DON'T have to be handled in the bathroom!
The set I purchased was the one below. Click on the picture to head over to her TpT to grab your own copy!
My third project was for home. I took a bunch of basil and other herbs and created basil butter in ice cube trays as well as herbs in olive oil. I mixed them up, dropped it into the ice cube trays, and let them set over night. It is a great way to preserve your summer herbs, throughout the year!
I have been busy working this summer on my novel studies. These are the MOST helpful tools for me during the year. I create novel studies that are mostly text dependent questions, allowing my students to use the text to find evidence, infer, etc. I also like to create an answer key that helps a TON so that I don't have to re-read the book/chapter each day of instruction, etc. Recently I have been working on my newest book study. It won't be ready until later this week, but I thought I would give you a preview of what it will be. If you are familiar with my TpT products, I have a lot of Magic Tree House, Cam Jansen, and Nate the Great. This is a new series for me that my kiddos LOVED this year. So, here it is!!! Amber Brown! So check back soon to grab a copy once it is finished!
