Classroom DIY

Here's what I've been up to in my classroom:

Monday Made-It #1: Paint chips hung on a hook on a computer with students' log-in information! The math fact fluency program we use is called Reflex. Our county bought us a subscription and it is great! Their reflex passwords are blue. The purple paint chips are for Raz-Kids and then there are green paint chips with their regular log-in information :)

Monday Made It #2: Binder clips labeled with students names and put on their "mailboxes"/cubbies instead of the number system that I was using. My messengers could never remember students' numbers.

Monday Made-It #3: I made all of my students a paint chip bookmark. I think I want to do a monthly bookmark. They love them! And there are tons of easy, free projects on Pinterest. I want to try the cereal box bookmarks next.

Monday Made-It #4: My classroom library got a makeover thanks to Donors Choose! I asked for some book bins and voila!

Also, I am having a sale on my TPT store! It's for today and tomorrow! Snag some good deals here:

  4. Agree whole heartedly that 4th graders are amazing :) Your bookmarks are crazy cute..I could totally steal this and then use the different boxes to write the different literary devices they find..alliteration, onomatopias etc! Luv your blog design.
