Monday Made It!

I'm doing a quick link up with 4th Grade Frolics for her first of the summer's weekly "Monday Made Its'!  It's the sign of great things to come...

This week I thought I'd share a few little projects...nothing too exciting!  
First of all, one of our paras was SOOOO helpful to me last week and I just knew I needed to do more than send her a thank you email! I put together a little snack bag to get her through these last few weeks!

Another little project I have been working on is a promotional baggie for a conference coming up...not quite sure what I was thinking! I've got 300 of these little beasts to do...not sure if you can see them, but there are 24 little individually cut out green slips in each.  Yikers! 

Finally, as I was purging papers out of my NIGHTMARE of a classroom, I came across two of these awesome storage containers that I bought years ago and haven't found the perfect use for...

Too cute, right?  It was originally meant to store CD's, I believe.  I was putting stuff away in my classroom and thought about all the task cards and word problems I have and will be making this summer...and then thought of a little treasure I found at the office supply store...

So...I decided to cut some cardstock dividers to fit, labeled one of the tags, and tried it out!

I think it's going to work--and will store a TON of cards!

Hope you stop by 4th Grade Frolics to check out all the other great Monday Made It ideas!


  1. Love this idea! In fact....I have those cute little divider/labels! Storing task cards is a toughie! I have some of those photo boxes from Michael's (still in plastic wrap). Your idea just might work with those unused little gems! Thanks for the idea!

  3. I agree with Debbi...what a great idea using the cd boxes or perhaps photo boxes to store questions! Fabulous! Hope you don't mind I used this next year organizing my classroom.
    Your promotional baggie also looks great!

  4. Aren't teachers the most creative little things? What a great use for a CD storage case! I have those little tabbed paper clips, too. I use mine to mark places in teacher's guides or my plan book.

    Thanks for sharing!

  5. Love all your made its:) That goodie bag is too sweet:) I really love that you did know sometimes people just don't slow down enough to say thank you and you did that and more:) Super thoughtful:) Thanks for linking up:)

  6. How smart! I never would have thought to use a CD storage case for the classroom and it will be perfect to house your task cards! I have never seen handy divider labels like that either. I will have to keep an eye out for those next time I am in an office supply store. Thanks for sharing!
