Monday Made it #3

Here I am with my 3rd Monday Made it!!  I have loved being able to link up with Tara a couple times this summer.  I just wish I would have started this earlier and gotten even more done for my classroom!

It is hard to believe that in 2 more weeks I will have 20-something new kids walking into my classroom!  Therefore, my mind is running with decorating, organizing and new classroom ideas.  Here are a couple new Monday Made Its.  Enjoy :)

So, I absolutely LOVE binder clips and use them for so many things in my classroom, especially for keeping papers to be graded together!  A couple years ago, I put stickers on some of my binder clips to make them cuter.  This year, I decided to use Scotch Washi tape to make my binder clips a little cuter.  I got 2 different roles of tape for $2 each and had binder clips at school that I used.  I LOVE my new binder clips and can't wait to use them in my classroom.

 Here are the materials that I used to make this binder clips.

Finished results!! So easy to make but much better than those boring black binder clips!

Here are a couple FREEBIES on my TPT site!!  Each year, I work hard with my students on learning their multiplication and division facts.  To help motivate my students we do an ice cream multiplication party and a division popcorn party.  If you want to know more about this, check out on of my latest blog post about how to motivate your students to learn their multiplication and division facts.  Below is a poster about my multiplication ice cream rewards and a note home for the party.  Check them out in my TPT store :)

I have been MIA the past couple Monday Made Its because of a family member that was in a bad car accident, but I am back and I hope that you enjoyed these Monday Made It's!

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE! How this came out. Need to try this out

  3. Why do they only make binder clips in black? Well, the inexpensive ones anyways....they should be bright to boos the joy of all the paperwork! Love the washi tape clips.
