Monday Made It: July 18

Happy Monday!

One of the big changes now that I'm going to teach block classes rather than my own class is the summer preparation. Usually I'm in a tizzy about now deciding how I want everything to look. Lots of printing and laminating and stalking the BTS sales. This summer is a nice change. However, there are a few things I want in my new classroom so I have been working on those.

In past years I have put my group work expectations on an anchor chart. This year I decided to make these half-sheet posters to put up. I'm really pleased with the way they look and hoping I can get into my room next week to see where they might go!

 I also wanted to make posters of the four things I want for all my students - critical thinking skills, creativity, collaboration, and communication. Apparently I have a little chevron thing going on, which is just fine!



 Of course I'm quilting away this summer and have just three more Tuesdays to go work with other quilters. This past week I stitched up my July block. The pattern is the Mariners Star and I love the way it looks.

 Our summer home improvement projects are still going on. This week we replaced our mattress set. Our old one was 14 years old! Our son decided he wanted to upgrade to queen size so we had the delivery guys haul away his old double set and he took ours. I also kept working on the plants and added a bit of color! I like the splash of red. My goal is to finish putting in plants and get the decorative stone before I go back to school.

Looking forward to seeing what you have been working on!
