Okay so I can't believe that it's been a couple of months since I was on. February was VERY hectic for me. I had my niece's FROZEN birthday which was crazy trying to get ready for (I help with planning and making decorations, and the cake and everything). Then I had conferences. Not to mention how it's the shortest month and you have 100th Day and Valentine's Day and Presidents, Black History, and Dental Health Month. I would have had a TON of made its to share! Maybe I'll remember and share this week anyway. lol I don't know what happened with the rest of January that I didn't post and this month it has been all about assessing and report cards. Well report cards went home Friday. So that leaves me with time to actually post Made-Its! I was reminded that Made It Monday was this week because of good old Facebook. I forget that it's the 2nd Monday and not the first. So this weekend was all about getting things ready for St. Patrick's Day for my kiddos. Now I don't have a lot of pics of these things yet because I'm going to take pics when they are set up in the classroom.
I too, made those fabulous, "I'm so Lucky to have you in my class" goodie bags for my students with the lucky charms. Loved the freebie from A Cupcake for the Teacher as well.
I also made the "You're the pot of gold at the end of my rainbow" with oreos baggie for my kiddos too.
I'm putting these in my Halloween black cauldron that will magically turn into a pot of "gold" for St. Patty's Day. This will go along with…
Also from the fabulous Cupcake for the Teacher (she's fabulous isn't she??). We will be doing her classroom Rainbow Treasure Hunt where they will find those fabulous oreo pots of gold. So those are printed, cut, and ready to go.
A Leprechaun will be leaving the kiddos green coins on their desk with this little note:
The coins I've had for a while. I think I got them from Party City one year. I had exactly enough left over so I guess I was lucky!! So these are cut out ready to go and I'm going to put the green coin right in the middle of the clover. I honestly don't remember where I found this. I googled "leprechaun note for kids" and found it, so if it belongs to you let me know and I'll link to it!
I also made stickers for my kids to wear because I like them to have something green on in case they don't wear any to school. I couldn't find any that were a good size or that I liked in the stores so I just made some using this DJ Inkers clipart and 2 x 4 in. labels.
My final Made-it is for my co-workers. I follow http://www.howdoesshe.com/. If you subscribe to the blog you get certain Members Only Freebies. Well this month's freebies were for "St. Patrick's Day in a Jar" labels. They had different ideas of filling the jar with rainbow candy or colorful flowers or mini rainbow cupcakes. I thought of this:
So it's just Smart Pop Kettle corn that I popped and then melted a package of green Candy melts, poured it over the popcorn and mixed it up to coat it. Then I sprinkled on rainbow colored M&Ms and let it set. I bought mason jars and some green fabric (already had the ribbon) and printed the labels. I thought this was definitely St. Paddy's Day in a Jar, green and rainbow. So my team will be getting this as well.
Oh! Made-It 7!!
While I was uploading these I remembered one more Made-It!
Flat Stanley!!! I had to re-make him again this year because apparently my other one has gone off traveling some where and couldn't be found. We have Spring Break NEXT week so I had to get him ready so I could show my kiddos what to do with him over spring break. So he's copied, colored, and laminated again for this year.
So as you can see it was a very busy Sunday for me. All this plus laundry (did grading Saturday).
So I will try VERY hard after school to post the pictures of St. Patrick's Day in the classroom with all of the goodies.
Have a great day and woohoo for me for getting a blog post done!!!!
