Monday Made It...freebie..and giveaway!

Hey everyone!  I have been knee deep in my classroom (spent 6 hours there yesterday!) so my "Monday Made it" projects are quite lacking this week.  However, I thought I'd show off two of my bulletin boards (that counts as a "made it" right??

The one and only "project" I have to share this week was inspired by this...
What is it you ask?  Well.. It turns into a pretty stinkin' adorable picture frame!  It's from IKEA...
TOLSBY Frame for 2 pictures IKEA You can display one picture on each side as the frame has no back panel.

Frame for 2 pictures, white

              Article Number: 

And it was ONLY 99 cents!  So when I saw these puppies I got to thinking... what could I do with them?  So I came up with this!!

I plan to put the check for understanding one in my reading corner and the stop! one by my turn-in bin!  The green frame is empty for the moment.  You can grab yourself a copy of the small posters by clicking {here}

So my room is definitely NOT ready for any kind of "reveal" yet... however, I'd like to do a quick share of two of my bulletin boards :)

This is my calendar etc board... it's not quite complete..still need to add birthdays
and job names.

This is my word wall-- boy did it take a LONG time to do this! But
I like how it turned out! :)

And this is why I'm not ready for a reveal yet...
We are required to pack up our rooms every summer for cleaning... so the unpacking has begun! :)

We spent the day yesterday at Lego land...wowsers! That place is so cool and I now have a new respect for legos!
Have a GREAT Monday!!

  8. I am so glad I didn't have to pack up this year. They made us take everything off the walls last year so they could paint...and never did! See if I follow directions again!
