Whew....first day in my new classroom and I am T.I.R.E.D. Of course I made a huge mess unpacking a bazzilion boxes ( I fear I may be a teacher hoarder), but it's *starting* to look like a normal classroom. Yea!
I'm linking up with 4th Grade Frolics for another
Like MANY of us out there in the blogging world, I use the clip chart system for behavior management. LOVE IT! My clip chart just wasn't matching my polka dot decor, so I made a new chart which is totally Pinterest inspired from here. Here's mine
I wanted something extra for the students who make it **off the chart** and since I'm constantly calling my kiddos "Smartie Pants" I made these
I've seen versions of the Smartie Pants made out of baby jeans, but I didn't trust my sewing skills on jeans. I bought some baby bloomers at Hobby Lobby for cheapo ~ like 3 bucks. Got the owl patch there too, it ironed on, but I sewed a couple spots just to be sure. The letters are iron on also. I made the suspenders by sewing on some ribbon and used the buttons to cover up my not so good sewing job. I added a couple candy stickers onto the hanger since that's what will be inside.
Can't wait to check out all your creations!
