Monday Made It!

WAHOO!
I finally have something to share for Monday Made it!
I am liking up with Tara from 


I don't know about you, but all those
ADORABLE
decorated drawer units 
frustrate the heck out of me!
I must be paper challenged because I can 
NEVER get the paper in the drawers right,
and then it all looks funky.

But..
I had a ton of duct tape from other
 projects that I wanted to use up.
I do OK with duct tape, 
so I though it would give that a try!

Ta Da!


I wrapped the drawers with duct tape. 
 It took two layers to cover the sides.
Then I added strips to the top and 
trimmed with an exacto knife.
(It took almost a whole roll of tape for the entire set.)

Next I cut and added vinyl letters to label the drawers.

Easy Peasy!

I'm Lovin' It!

I'm heading on over now to check out all the goodies you have made!
Come on along!

Loved That Lesson!


Today I'm joining my buddy Meg from 
to share (again) one of my
all-time-favorite back-to-school lessons.
This is one of my most pinned posts.

One of the things we did was the sticky note posters - you know which ones.  
They are all over Pinterest.
Here are ours...

No surprises on this one.  
We learn new stuff every day.
We learn new things.
To get ready for college.


Survey says...
Clean, Quiet, Fun!


OKAY, a few surprises here...
To fly around the world. (?)
Being good.
Getting good grades/Honor Roll
Getting organized


They nailed this one!
Work hard. 
Pay attention!
Read!
No talking, playing and doing silly stuff.
Here are some of their responses...




My third grade pals trained them well!


Oh, and they want HOMEWORK!






Here's what they want from each other...





I L♥VED this lesson!

First Day Subbing and a Couple of NEW Products!

I did my first subbing job this year
(and it's only the third day of school!)
After the last several years in 4th grade, 
I forgot just how sweet 3rd graders are!
I had a wonderful day with a great bunch of kiddos
at Sundance Elementary.

It was sooooo nice to walk out at 3:00
on a FRIDAY
and not have to worry about 
lesson plans for the next week!

As a little gift for the teacher, 
I left a couple copies of files I have made 
and a business card.

Maybe I'll get a new customer,
 and maybe she'll spread the word.

Last night I posted my new 


The kids had Fun Friday today, 
so I taught them how to play.
Some of them even chose to play 
during their free time.
It was a hit!

I also left he a copy of my new 


She had the kids to an initial assessment writing prompt today,
and I almost used mine, but instead I left it for her to (hopefully) use in the future.

I think that for each class I sub in, 
I will choose a product appropriate for that grade level 
to leave as a "parting gift."

Would you like to have something like that 
waiting for you after you have been absent?

By request I also added a new newsletter template to the store today.



I have been want to do some owl theme goodies for quite a while, and finally am getting around to it.

So, what can I make for YOU today?
