Monday Made It- June 22

Happy Summer Everyone!
I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics to show what I have made! My first project is from last summer. I never shared it so it still counts, right?!

When I decided to go with a color theme to my classroom I really didn't want to buy all new stuff so I invested in A LOT of spray paint. I had this toy/bin organizer that I loved.
  With some time and spray paint I was able to turn it into this!

 I love how it turned out. I get complements on it and often followed by, "Where did you get that?" I am always so proud to say I made it :)

My next Monday made it comes from home. My hubby and son had a joint 4th/40th Birthday. Star Wars theme of course, and I made these delicious cakes!

I am no pro but I think they came out pretty nice! Here is a family photo at the party while we are in our Star Wars gear!

Don't forget to hop on over to 4th Grade Frolics so you can see all the wonderful Monday Made It posts!

Watermelon Day!

As promised, here is our WATERMELON DAY! How can you go wrong with watermelon?! We started off by digging right in.

Then we used describing words to write about what we know about watermelon!

We used this great little unit by Jessica Travis She has some great units in her store, I am never disappointed with what she does.

Then we made some watermelon buddies. by Christa Lynos

Popcorn Day

As the school year winds down I start to have theme days full of fun! One of our fun days was POPCORN DAY! The students loved it! We started by reading some books to get us in the popcorn zone.
These are my favorites:

 We then made a little popcorn craft that went along with our sight words. (I found the popcorn bucket and outline on google images)

Then we made popcorn! My lovely co-teacher brought in her air popper and the students went CRAZY! I have a video of it on my Instagram account.
It was delicious!
We used our 5 senses to explore our popcorn (and our favorite sense to use was taste!) I found this cute little freebie from Sunny and Bright in First Grade

This product has the cutest clipart! The students did a wonderful job!

My Teeny Tiny Room

Here are a few pictures of my room this year. You can tell I went with a color combo theme and I LOVE it. It helps my room feel super homey.
This is a view from the back of my room.

 This is one side of my room I hang literacy work on the large bulletin board. My numbers are above as will as my word families.

 Word wall and white board. I also have my reading strategy posters up as well.

This is my carpet area. Those bight green shapes are sit spots. If you have not herd about sit spots you are missing out! They are AMAZING. You can learn more about them here

This is my library area :)

Here is my little teacher area!

 Hope you enjoyed your tour! If you have any questions just ask!
