Monday Made It: June 23rd

Linking up again with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for another edition of Monday Made It! I worked on a number of things this past week, but not everything got done. Here are some things I did accomplish:

I put together these place value visuals to help my kids with our first math unit. So many of my students coming into 3rd do not have a solid grasp of place value and how to use it to round numbers. These are based on an activity from CPalms, but I wanted the tools ready to go rather than a craftivity. I'm writing a blog post about how to use these, so if you are a follower you will be able to download a freebie this week.

One of the home projects I wanted to get done this month  is to put water seal on our steps. I know you can't tell, but it was great to get that done, finally!

Last fall I made a great Halloween wall hanging for my living room. I was wishing I had one for my classroom, and when I saw this panel I knew it would be perfect. I am a huge Charlie Brown fan, so what could be better than The Great Pumpkin?! The amazing thing is that it is finished well before Halloween :)

Only one more Monday before I leave for my Alaskan cruise, so the pressure is on to complete some more projects!

  6. How exciting! I have always wanted to go on a cruise but my husband does not want to. Maybe I need to go with someone else. :-)

  8. A cruise ~~ I'm so jealous! We went on an Alaskan cruise last year and had a FANTASTIC time. If you have the opportunity visit Glacier Bay, it's amazing!
    You're very clever to get your math items ready now.
