Ahhh Monday . . . you come along way too quickly! I was barely getting settled into the weekend & there you are. Ugh.
So, being Monday, it's time to link up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made it !! Yay... Thank you Tara for making Monday a little easier to handle.
So I have seen this idea around for making little mini backpacks out of paper bags & thought I could take that idea & use it for my SuperStar Student backpacks. I just used big grocery store bags instead of the little lunch bags.
UPDATE: Click HERE to grab the template at my TPT store. Right now, it's FREE! :)
I'm going to try and get the templates for the front & back uploaded to TPT for free so you can download.If you are interested, please leave me a comment & let me know. I"ll update ASAP with the link but I'll also email those of you that comment with a direct link. :)

I made this!

Anyway, I needed something for positive reinforcement & this is awesome! During the day, when a child is "caught being good", they get to go to the chart and write their name on ANY square of their choice. At the end of the day, I pull a letter & a number (coordinate point) and the child whose name is in the square gets to go to the Treasure Box. If that "chosen" square is empty, the drawing rolls over to the next day. If a child is chosen, the board gets erased and we start over the next day :)
I love this because it sets a purpose for the Treasure Box instead of just randomly choosing who goes,or just letting a bunch of kids go on Friday. I'm really excited about it !! :)
I'm linking up with Blog Hoppin' for her Teacher Week Blog Hop/Linky. Today is Must Have Monday,so you have to list your teacher must haves. Pretty easy, huh?!

I'm in the market for a new one as I think I have officially worn mine OUT & have been using one of those reusable bags. I'm in LOVE with this one right now :)

So, that's it for me & my Monday !! I keep reading that everyone is going back to school so here's to a great first week & an even better year :)
