Monday Made It!






It's time for another MMI--and I have missed the last one or two due to utter craziness!  This time I am just going to share out some of my recent accomplishments...some more impressive than others!  Some days I feel my creative juices are better than others...and with the chaos of life over the last weeks, some things have had to go!

So here goes--some recent creations!

We do "Secret Snowman" at school so I had fun starting to make little surprise treats for my Secret Snowman...she's a Twix lover, so I started with a little bundle of those!  I am hoping to get more creative over the next two weeks--suggestions welcome!
I made a fun new freebie that found its way into the TpT Holiday Freebie book.  It's a differentiated addition and subtraction game at three levels.  Here is a photo of one of the game boards . . . Click here if you want to grab it too!
One thing that I have "made" over the last month is my new system for doing math workshop.  I will be blogging about this soon, but it has been working REALLY well.  Each child has a tracking sheet with extension work to do when they finish their regular work so I can pull small groups!  I am NOT good at "systems", so to have created one that is working is a big deal!
I haven't started Christmas cookies, but I did have a hankering for some chocolate chip cookies.  All the supplies for other cookies are purchased--I just need a little time and motivation!
Apple pecan muffins.  Enough said.  And they are gone.
What could I possibly have MADE in this picture?  I made a DECISION!  After months of hemming and hawing, I finally decided on a new laptop (being built on Wednesday!) and a color laser printer!  I am a very indecisive person when it comes to big purchases, so this was a biggie!
I finally broke down and changed the display above my lockers!  I love how this turned out--and so I even turned it into a resource in my store for those who want a quick, easy, and fun bulletin board!  Here is the link if you are interested!

Finally, I have had requests to make more of my seasonal word problem sets--specifically one for Christmas.  I can't use Christmas activities in my school, but I sure had fun making these problems for those of you who can!  Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by--and I hope you have a wonderful week!

  1. WOW! That looks like quite the printer. Impressive!!

    I really like your "Chillin' with a Good Book" hallway display. I was just thinking that I needed to put something up that could stay up into January and this might be the thing. (I hate changing hallway displays.)

    Have a great week!

  2. What time should I be over for cookies? They look yummy! I will be a fast friend for cookies any day of the week. Pintermas parties are not required! Love your new display over your lockers! That's a great one that can last through the Winter months!

  3. I want a color laser printer too! Do you have any problems laminating? There is one in our office and whenever I laminate something that was printed on it, the colors change.

  4. I'm super curious about your math workshop tracking! I've looked into several different versions of math workshop and have never found one that I think I could do. I also have an even harder time with my laptops trying to work it all in! I can't wait to see what you are doing!

  5. So what printer did you go with? I've been trying to convince my husband we need a new one, but he's not giving in yet!

  6. Yum those muffins and cookies look delicious. I just got a new HP printer and a Canon copier for school. I'm very indecisive as well.
