Monthly Made It - September

I'm finally making it to the Made It Mondays again :)  I have made so much for my classroom thanks to all the wonderful ideas from Pinterest.  Here is what I've made so far.

#1 - Hall Pass
Loved this on Pinterest then put my own spin on it. :)  I got the plaque from Michael's for $1.00 then wrapped it with fabric.  The letters are stickers from the scrapbook section, then I mod-podged the whole thing.  I hotglued the pawprint ribbon on the back of the plaque then hung it with the smaller black ribbon.

This has worked so much better than the traditional hall passes I used to use... and much cheaper to replace too. :)  I use this in conjunction with the hand sanitizer bottle labeled "Bathroom Pass" and it has worked out wonderfully! I love it!

#2 - Pennants/Banners

I loved all the pennants and banners people were making so I took my shot at it :)  I really like how they turned out and they certainly brighten up my room.

 #3 - Pom Poms on Dry Erase Markers
Okay so I loved the idea from Pinterest to hot glue the pom poms to the tops of dry erase markers.  I was so excited to use them and not have to worry about the kids messing with paper towels or rags... but I was kind of disappointed.  Mine did not erase well.  I'm not sure if anyone else has had this problem or if it's maybe just my older whiteboards.   The idea was great though and thankfully it didn't take me too long to put together. :)

#4 - Class Expectations
I have been reading and learning about the Whole Brain Teaching and also about other ways of discipline.  I learned that rules were made to be broken and that a class should have expectations.  I made these cute little signs to show the kids what I expect out of them.  It's worked out very well so far, especially the behavior clip chart (which I think is magical with the way my students respond to it).

Well that's it for this month! I hope you liked it :)

If you liked the pennants/banners I have some for sale on my Teachers Pay Teachers account here:
