I ended up having a meltdown a day after getting back. My printer, after installing $40 worth of ink, would not print anything correctly! I spent three hours cleaning everything I could. So, I went out and bought a new one. I don't recommend EPSON.
Monday Made It: Alphabet
The first thing I "made" was Ladybug's Teacher Files round cursive alphabet. I have to tell you about the tool I found at Hobby Lobby that made this project super simple. It's a circle cutter from Martha Stewart!! After I cut them out, I laminated them and used the circle cutter again. I also scaled the alphabet down to 85% when I printed it... full size was just too big for me.
Monday Made It: Jobs Chart and Student Numbers
The second thing I made was a jobs chart. Several weeks ago I posted that I had plans to make one, but had no idea how I wanted it to look. I went for super simple...kinda. I printed the job names on Avery Sticker Paper and cut out each one and stuck it to those super cute paisley pockets. I couldn't figure out what type of glue to use to glue everything to the poster paper, but ended up using Rubber Cement. Hopefully it holds! What do you think? PS, I believe I've said before that OCD is a disability. I, seriously, had to measure everything! :)
My friend and co-worker, Ms. P at Wild about Learning!, suggested that I try to find craft sticks with hands on them for the student numbers for the jobs chart. Get it? Lend me a HAND? :) I looked all over the internet and found nothing, so I decided to make my own. I designed, printed, cut, laminated, cut (again) and glued them to craft sticks. You like? I'm going to put a pocket off to the side to hold the extra sticks.
If you're interested in my labels or hands, they're available on TpT!
That's all I had time to make! I finished reading Nicholas Sparks' memoir, Three Weeks with My Brother earlier this week. His books make so much sense after reading it. Saturday, I read (yes, all in one day) Nights in Rodanthe. It was really good. I think they changed too much in the movie, though. Typical.
We haven't heard yet when we will be able to get back into the school to work. I went in to do interviews last Wednesday and was told that we would definitely be able to get in when the floors are done! It would be nice to be able to do a few hours of work every day and not have to rush to get the room ready! When are you all able to get into your rooms?
