Hello Everyone! Today I am linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It. I've been spending a lot of time at school lately getting ready for students to arrive on Monday. Here are my Made Its for the week.
I made signs for CAFE and Daily 5. I have always had a reading and writing workshop, but this will be my first "official CAFE" year. These will both soon (hopefully tomorrow) be freebies in my TPT store. I just didn't have time to post them tonight.
I made "Volume Control" signs.
3The biggest project I worked on was finishing printing, laminating, and magnetizing my social studies learning targets and vocabulary words.
I used digital paper to match my binders.
This is how I will post each unit. (These are for our mini-unit on map skills.)
I have tried many strategies over the years for students to let me know they need help when I am working with a small group (cups, clips, flip charts, question chair...) Each method has pro and cons, and I would recommend trying any of them. However, this year I am on a mission to simplify. I made signs for students to write their name under while I am busy. This way, I am aware of the problem, but I am not interrupted.
Finally, I printed, cut, and laminated Technology Promises from iTeach 1:1. I love the way these turned out. Thank you, Kristin!
That's all for me. I just realized that if you are with me in the Eastern Time Zone, this is technically a Tuesday Made It. What can I say? Today was just plain crazy!
I'm looking forward to spending some time tomorrow morning with a cup of coffee reading all the other Made Its.
