Monday Made It - Response board, Mirror, Triple To Do, and More


I'm linking up again with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics to share what I've been doing this week.  I love the things that I have seen on other blogs, and this linky party is encouraging me to get things done!
I used a tri-fold display to make a response board.  Each of those globes have student numbers on them.  The intent is to have the students answer a question in one of the subjects on a post it note, and then stick it on their globe on the way out the door. 
I love the idea that was floating around on Pinterest with having a positive affirmation mirror that students can use.  I tell them all the time that they are smart - but they need to believe it.
Another thing is a triple to do list.  I used my triple frame and broke up my to do list into 3 categories.
Prep and Copy: Things I need to prepare
Plan and Grade: Things I need to write and grade
Take and Go: Errands I need to run either around school to drop stuff off, or places I need to go to get stuff
 The back colored lines came from Kristen at Ladybug's Teacher Files CRAFT Board Headers set.  
I've done other things this week as well, but they have been more paperwork type of things.  My husband laminated over 130 business card sized things for me to finish up my Homeworkopoly game from Ladybug Teacher Files, and he got my Ticket store prizes ready from Teaching in Room 6.  I think the actual Ticket Store organizer will hang up in my closet (my Dollar Store find), and only the options will hang up in the classroom.

On another note, am I the only one that takes over the dining room table during summer vacation?  It's the only place to spread out and be crafty around here with my 3 boys running all over.  Thanks for visiting me!  I hope this helped you in some way.

  1. Until the day we get our forever house and I get my own craft room, my teaching & scrapbooking will always be covering the dining room table :)

    1. I'm glad that I'm not the only one... though I feel bad that no one can use any part of it except me.

  2. How do you use the tickets? Do you have a list of what they say? How nice of your husband to laminate those for you! Cute labels! Thanks for sharing!

    1. The prizes for the store came from Stephanie @ Teaching in Room 6 - the link is above. I chose the ones that I thought would work best for me... the options paper is in a doc format. I give out pink carnival tickets in my class to help encourage kids. Those tickets they have to use to go to the bathroom, or they save them for the store. For 10 tickets they can get a piece of candy (parents donate), 25 is a bathroom pass (worth ___ amount of trips), a fun pencil, or a sticker sheet. 50 is a homework pass, sit by a friend, or 10 minutes of "free" time.

  3. Great stuff! And no, you're not the only one. My dining table, heck, practically my whole dining ROOM is overtaken with my crafts!

    1. Thanks. The floor between the dining room table and the wall is covered with my teaching stuff - it's always like this every year and every year I feel bad for these couple of months... but of course this is NOTHING like the year that I had to bring everything in the classroom home with me - that took up 1/2 the garage.

  5. I love your mirror! I saw that idea too & have been meaning to make it. Your 3 section frame idea is also another great one for organization. Great job on everything!

    1. I'm sure the kids will giggle with the mirror, but they really need to believe it too.
