I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics for the popular Monday Made It! I decided to try to make the ever popular dyed clothespins. However, my plan for them is a little different. I use "Brag Tags" and brag beads as an incentive for Accelerated Reader. Last year, I used a poster board with pockets for the students to store their "Brag Tags" when they were not wearing them. The poster board was constantly falling off the wall which was frustrating! So, I am going to apply magnetic tape to the back of these clothespins and stick them to the side of the file cabinet. Students can clip their "Brag Tag" necklaces to their individual clothespins!!! Yay...organized, cute, and hopefully, they will stay put.:) I'm debating as to whether to add the little tag (The Backstage Pass is by Thistle Girl Designs.) for their names. I will laminate them, so I can use them again. I might just put the tags above the clothespins. I have time to decide...
For my next project, I had to freshen up my "Where are we?" sign. Here is my old one (The corners were peeling & it just looked ragged.):
Here is my new & improved one (and the signs). The chevron graphics are by I Teach. What's your super power?:
I love summer because we have so many produce stands in the area! We like tomatoes, too. I decided to make a tomato pie! It turned out to be delicious! (I would use a little less mayonnaise though.)
Have a happy week! :)
