So...to get things started, I finally found a way to organize my HUGE stack of 12x12 scrapbooking paper that kept it easy to access and not sliding all over the place. I didn't really MAKE it, but it made for a cleaner office area! I got this storage bin at my favorite red "Bulls Eye" store and it was the perfect size!
Simple yet effective. I slide this down in a lower cabinet and can easily see what I have. What I see is that I have WAY too much yellow.
Keeping with the organization theme (In other words...avoiding the harder work that is coming this summer!) I decided to make my new binder covers for the three key subject areas I need to pull small groups for...I like to keep them uniform but different colors so I can easily see at a glance which one to grab.
It was the end of year baseball banquet and we were supposed to bring a dessert. My oven has been unable to heat past 240 degrees for a month, so I needed a stove stop option! I snooped around Pinterest a little and it hit me...
It was SO fast and easy...not sure why I haven't made these more often for events like this. They are portable and the kids loved them. (Grown ups too...) They were gone before everyone made it through the line!
Finally, I was very productive! I finished this electricity resource that I started 9 months ago so THAT was a huge accomplishment!
I made some cosmetic upgrades to this guy...so if you own it, feel free to re-download it!
I published this set because I start my year with a mapping unit and I love to be able to tie my math to my content when I can. Kids love big numbers and cool facts so I worked both of those into this resource.
All three will be on sale for the next few days if any of you are interested in grabbing them before they go back to full price.
That's all for this week of Monday Made It...I was pretty proud of how much I got done! Make sure to check out all the other great ideas linked up by clicking on the logo at the top of the post--and stop back on Tuesday for "Texts on Tuesdays" where I am posting about a great professional book you might want to check out and back again on Wednesday for "Math Is Real Life"!
