Anyway, onto my Made-Its!!
Made it #1: Visual Necklaces
I made 2 versions. The necklace for classroom behavior, has directives and school rules (sit, walk, line up, clean up, etc.) These will be worn by all the adults in the room at all times.
The other necklace has pictures of school supplies. The school supply necklaces will be hung on a hook at each station for all of the adults to use.
These are super simple to put together after deciding on what pictures you want to use. I started with 38 pictures, but cut it down to 18 for the behavior necklaces and 7 for the school supply necklaces. After printing my visuals, I laminated them, cut them out, and punched a hole in the corner. Next, I added them all to a binder ring and attached the ring to the
stylish boring lanyards I bought.
You can buy these visual on my TPT store. The set comes with 38 visuals...although for my necklaces posted here, I only used the pictures relevant to my class. I have the other pictures laminated, punched, and ready to go in case we need them throughout the year. I just like to start with 15-20 pictures on a necklace so you can actually find the ones you need!
As you can see, I added a name card to the backs of each necklace as well. This way, we can always keep track of our necklaces and if they get lost, they will hopefully find their was back home!
Made It #2: Hallway Banners
I found these cute backgrounds from Ashley Hughes' store, and I love them!! I also downloaded some new fonts to make these! Thses 2 banners are for our hallway. I laminated them using these amazingly cheap laminating sheets from Amazon (check them out here!!) They are 12" by 18" and only cost $17 for 100 sheets!!!!!! They are big enough to laminate file folders!!! The only glitch is, you need to make sure this size laminating sheet will fit in your laminater. I bought an extra wide laminator, so they work perfect in mine!!
This banner will go above my bulletin board in the hallway. It says "welcome."
This banner will go above my student work display. It says "Wow Work."
Made It #3:
And next, I needed new numbers and an alphabet for the inside of my classroom. My old one is so old and scraggly. And it was a train theme from when I taught first graders...now a little age inappropriate as I have 3-5 grade. So, I decided to make my own on these cute backgrounds from Ashley Hughes. I made numbers 1-20, and letters A-Z (upper/lowercase). These have all been laminated and cut out as well...now just waiting to get into my room to hang them all up!
If you made it this far....thanks! I have a Freebie for you! This whole set of banners, numbers, and letters is available on my TPT store FREE today only!
