Just wanted to share my first couple of Monday Made-Its of the summer (aside from totally redoing our mudroom--this made-it was a bit more time consuming)! :0)
I've seen these dry erase collage frames all over the Internet, but I don't usually 'jump on the bandwagon', as they say, unless it is something I am positive I will use. Well, I decided we do need a visual that is up all week for the kids to refer to--me too!
It was a pretty simple made-it--1. I purchased the 5 x 7, six frame collage at Hobby Lobby with my 40% of coupon. 2. I decided to use scrapbook paper in the colors of the rainbow because we have a Muppet classroom theme (We're Moving Right Along Together!) with rainbow colors. Used my paper cutter to cut the paper to size. I got the scrapbook pad at Hobby Lobby, too---50% off all paper packs! I use a lot of this kind of paper throughout the year.... 3. I formatted the days of the week lettering and cut them with my KNK Zing. I used black, sticky vinyl that is adhered to the front of the glass. I did this to minimize the glare, although printing the lettering on the paper would also work. 4. I put it all together, and voila!!
Another one of my made-its was a collection of arrow clipart---Every-Which-Way! I have been wanting to make these arrows since the beginning of last school year, but I never got them done. Check them out in my Graphics by Sarah Beth TpT store! I am also giving away another copy of this collection, so enter to win below...
Just a reminder, we are hosting a book study on our new Adventures in Guided Math blog. We are reading Guided Math in Action by Dr. Nicki Newton. Fly on over to learn more--we would love for you to participate!
And don't forget to stop over at Fourth Grade Frolics to read about some fabulous made-its!
Enjoy your week! Smiles!
