Monday Made It Is Back!

Hello Friends!
I am so excited that Tara from 4th Grade Frolics is bringing Monday Made It back this summer! 
I LOVE linking up and showing you what I have been up to.
Let's jump right in!
I made this fun toolbox for my friend!  She bought the toolbox from Lowe's and I painted & created all the labels.


Here is this one on Amazon. (affiliate link)
Follow the link and you can see different styles!


I LOVE the way her toolbox turned out! So my ...
is my HUGE toolbox! I completely redid mine! Mine came from Lowe's, too.

This one is a tip for displaying your student's work in the classroom or in the hall!
Display Clips!
Binder clips work GREAT!!!
I made my clips for next year to match my Camping/Woodland Animal Theme!

The BEST tip I can give you one this project is to check the clips on a piece of paper before you glue.  Last year, I glued them without checking and some were loose. Also, check the dollar stores for these clips.  I got 20 in a pack for $1.  Sometimes at Dollar Tree you can find some decorative clips, too! I like to use these in the classroom because the kids take care of them!

In the hall, I use my ribbon clips.
I just made these, too!
Here is how I make them:
1. I cut the ribbon 3" long.
2. I loop it through one silver handle.
3. I hot glue the ends together.
So easy!
You can either hot glue them to your spot, use a thumbtack, or staple the ribbon. 
For my last project I repainted my keys! I LOVE doing this and it really helps you find the right one quick! I am sure I saw it on Pinterest, but I have no idea which pin it was.

Here are the steps:
1. Clean your keys. (I had to remove the old color)
2. Paint a few layers of your favorite color of nail polish on both sides.
3. OPTIONAL: I added a layer of glitter polish.
4. Seal it with a clear top coat or spray with lacquer.
*I painted mine on a day I did not need to go anywhere and I was able to give the layers time to dry. If you have a spare set of keys that would work, too!
**The last time I did this, it lasted for years!

Thanks for stopping by!
We hope you got some ideas or inspiration. We would love for you to follow our blog for more ideas and tips!

We can't wait to see what other teachers are up to!
Happy Creating!

"CHEWS" Great Behavior! Positive Classroom Managment

Hello, Friends!
If you have been following us for a while, you know we LOVE rewarding students for making the BEST choices during the day!

Here is another idea we have for you to try during the year.
This can work for your kids at home, too!

Here is how it works!
Print all of the parts, put it together, and laminate!
It is that easy! I added Velcro Dots to mine!
You can find them here:
(affiliate link)

You make the rules that work for your class.  Choose a reward for your class to work towards. As they meet your expectations, you move a gumball to the gumball machine. 
Once the gumball machine is full, they have earned their reward. Then you can choose a different reward and start again.
You can always use this with your own child at home!  As they complete chores or have a great day at school, they can work toward a reward your family decides on.  I am going to use this with my youngest at home! He is going to love it!
Grab it here:

POP! End-of-the-Year FUN!

Classroom Fun!
So it is the end-of-the-year and behavior management can begin to get a little tough. There are so many GREAT ideas out there to help keep kids focused on learning and still have fun!

One of those is "Popping for Positive Behavior!"
Behavior Management Strategies, Balloon Pop, Planet Happy Smiles
You can make up your own rules, but here is how it works in my class ...

Supplies: Signs, slips of prizes/rewards, and balloons.  I used thumbtacks to attach them to the board but you could string them on a line with  cute clothespins.

I rolled the small papers (folding doesn't work well) and stuffed them in each balloon, blew them up, and tied them.

Then, I tacked them to the bulletin board.
I hung 25 in a 5x5 arrangement.

Each day our class has had a FANTASTIC day, they get to pop a balloon.  There is a small paper with a prize.  Whatever balloon they pop, we will do that activity/prize the next day.

Here is another board I worked on for a teammate.  It would be great for anyone who is doing a Movie Theme or Hollywood Theme!

You could also do this as a countdown for your classroom, too!

Grab it in our TPT Store for just a dollar!
We love all of the AMAZING teachers out there!
