Turing Your Beliefs Into Actions!

Teaching Beliefs

He is an AMAZING speaker, if you ever get a chance to attend one of his presentations or go to his academy, we highly recommend it!

Planet Happy Smiles Birthday Bundle
One of the ways we organize our pages for each child's birthday is by printing them all ahead of time and placing them in file folders in the order they will take place.  That way they are ready to just grab and go!  We also put together all of the children's treat bags before school starts.  This saves us from scrambling around on their birthday.

We have collected numerous books over the years about birthdays.  We allow the birthday child to choose the one we will read on their birthday and they also get to take three home for the night in the birthday bag.

Here is the birthday tri-fold I started to create a bulletin board on.
I chose the tri-fold because I thought it might save time putting it up and taking it down each year. We are very limited on our wall space, too.
(I am still playing with it so ... It is not glued down, yet!)

Monday Made It ~ 7.27.15

Monday Made It

Hi, Friend!
Today, I am putting some things together from both of us! Alison worked hard on a project for her grandson and I am trying to knock out at least one project a week before I go back!

Monday Made It
This is Alison's Monday Made It project!  She is VERY crafty!
She created a whole habitat for Alvin and the Chipmunks for her grandson!
She used bookshelves from Walmart.

Here are some of the things that she made that makes it AMAZING!!! She made several different rooms and a ladder for them to get to them!

She made furniture specific to each room.

Clothing complete with super hero costumes!
If your kiddos or grandkids are into characters ... you can make one, too!

Monday Made It
This one is a simple one!  I started putting together my testing pencils to use on testing days! Last year, I found that my kids liked to eat/break the erasers off the tops of the pencils/losing pencil top erasers and I was always giving them new pencils on testing days.
This year I am trying the pencil flags!!! I can't wait to see how long they last ...

I still want to add happy face stickers to the flags, but I will have to wait until I can get into my classroom! I think that will make them smile on test days.


Here is the container for them. I found it at Hobby Lobby for $2.00!

 You could add one of these to your room, it's just so easy!
