My making was done on the computer, which means it is sharable with you!
First, I made classroom supply labels. I'm still not quite sure how I'm going to do community supplies. Last year, students had supplies in their desks, and I had a limited number of supplies out for everyone to use. I felt like some students took advantage (read: were disrespectful) of the community supplies, though. Right now, I'm thinking that I will still have some community supplies, but they will be divided by group so that the students are more responsible for them.
Here are the labels I made today! There are 12 supply labels and 8 group labels. Click on the picture if you want them!
I also made labels for my new turn-in boxes. I have two of these:
I made these labels for them: (click on the picture if you want them)
I made two boxes for each subject because between homework and classwork, they usually turn in two things from each subject each day. I'm hoping that I can leave work in these drawers, one assignment in each, for the whole day. I got the idea from one of the many blogs I read (sorry, don't remember who! If it was you, let me know!) to have a classroom job be to put the papers in number order and check for missing papers at the end of the day for easy grading. I think with the drawers and that job, my grading life will be so much easier next year! I am also going to make a magnet version of each. I will use the magnets on the whiteboard and write the assignments next to the box they should be turned-in in.
I will use the same boxes for social studies and science because I alternate teaching social studies and science by unit, so I never have both subjects at the same time. I made separate Social Studies and Science labels for you because I figured many people would want them separate.
My goal for next Monday is to have these labels printed and beautifully modge-podged with scrapbook paper onto their containers! Maybe I'll also finish my new behavior chart that I started almost a month ago now.
I also have two made-its for my home!
First, I made this curtain (please ignore my messy desk). I've been meaning to make it for the whole time - a year next month - that we've lived here. It covers a frosted window, but that window is right next to the front door, and I didn't like people being able to see my computer sitting on my desk.
My second home made-it is again on the computer. Boyfriend bought a new camera for our trip and with the camera came an offer from Shutterfly for a free 8x8 20 page photo book (just pay shipping and handling - $8). I just put the finishing touches on it. I can't wait to get it! If it turns out as cute as it is on the computer, I will probably have to make one for every vacation!
That's it! Good night!
