Monday Made It !

I just posted yesterday, but I thought I'd try to link up with 4th Grade Frolics and Monday Made It. So, I thought I'd share my new "sign" I made for my classroom rules.  I have gotten so bored with my poster, and other ways I've tried posting them, so I gave this a try.  

I went to Hobby Lobby and bought two sets of paper party plates (thanks 40% coupon!)
I then typed up my rules and inserted them into circles with text boxes on Word, printed & laminated. I hot glued the plates together, then the rules on top, strung with ribbon on the back, and there you have it. Easy and, I think, pretty cute! :)
Full size view. Unlike a lot of you out there, I can't get into my school right now so a bedroom door will have to do ! :)

My classroom has a frog theme, so the rules are written around that. We call them our F.R.O.G.S. Rules (which doesn't sound grammatically correct, but I'm gonna go with it!).  When I hang it in my classroom, I want to add more ribbon to the top and a cutesy bow.  So, there you have it ...Happy Monday Made - It ! :)

  7. Love this! I am doing a polka-dot theme for my new classroom (in Alabama - glad to see another Southern Girl!) and these would be PERFECT!! Do you do any activities with setting up your rules?

  8. Kelly, that is a great sign! We are the Firebirds at our school and I just might have to try that with our rules! Thanks for sharing! I'm your newest follower!
