Teaching first grade is so much fun, but I always forget how little they are at the beginning of the year, and how dependent they are. Plus, they are so used to having two teachers in Kindergarten & a much more relaxed environment. Anyway, I survived...and so did they .YAY!
I've been fighting against a nap, so I decided to go ahead and link up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for another Made It Monday.
But seriously, my "made its".. .
3rd Grade Thoughts.You can check out her original post at the link. I just LOVED the idea & when I tried it out today with my new firsties, it worked like a charm!!
For those of you who haven't seen this. . . the child going to the restroom places this on his/her desk when they leave the room. This tells the teacher where he/she is. It also (best part!) serves as a reminder to use two squirts when they get back to sanitize their hands. Because, let's be honest. . . no matter how many times I review our "Hush, Flush and Wash" rule, I'm not convinced they always fully wash their hands. My kids thought it was cool, too. Bonus! :)
Then, for Open House (& the First Day for those no-shows)... my Parent Handbook Flipbook:

I have had a lot of requests for a template for this handbook. Unfortunately, I don't have one because it requires printing, cutting, taping, and rerunning to make the book. There's no way to make a template.

Email me if interested & thanks for stopping by!
We now return to your regular blog reading...
Lastly, for the home...
Again, I have to thank Pinterest for this one. I have seen so many cute creations made out of buttons that I had to make one myself. It looks cuter in context but this is the best picture I could get. I LOVE burlap, and so I thought I'd try gluing the buttons to it & trying it out. Staple burlap to wood or canvas. Hot glue buttons on. Hang with ribbon. And done! Turned out pretty cute, I think :)
I updated my last post with this blog hop, but wanted to make sure it got out there. It's for Classroom Picture Tours! I don't know about you, but I really love seeing everyone else's rooms and what they have come up with. If teachers are known for anything, it's for the
Anyway, thanks for stopping by ! OH!! I almost forgot !
I'm almost at 100 followers & need your help! If I was to do a gift card giveaway, where should it be to? (yes, I ended that with a preposition. Don't judge!).
Have a happy Monday!! :)
