Monday Made It!

I have not done a Monday Made It in a long time! I would venture to say...since this summer!

#1: Semi-homemade...I bought the wreath but added the ribbon. In our neck of the must have lots of ribbon on your wreath!

#2: Spring has sprung...or at least it feels like it in Texas with my 5th graders. No capital letters at the beginning of a sentence, no periods or question marks, and no complete sentences! Really?!!!
Soooo, I'm going to try the "Frame of Fame!" Each week I'm going to pick a student piece of work that is worthy of being in the frame. The "Frame of Fame" will be outside our classroom. Each weekend, I will pick a piece of work to go in the frame. If their work is in the frame, they will get a homework pass for an assignment that week.

I had every intention of bringing the frame to school, but I left it on the kitchen island this morning!!! Ugg!
Actually, I think I might paint the back a different color. That way, the student can pick the color. This is the first piece of work that will be displayed.

#3: My last Monday Made It!... I found these at Wal-mart. Rory's Story Cubes!
There as so many ways you can use these! This week we will use them during "Work on Writing."
The sequencing sheet will help guide their writing.

I have got to find a better way to take pics...too many shadows!
There are some really great ideas over at 4th Grade Frolics Monday Made It!
Head over and check them out!


  1. I LOVE the "Frame of Fame"! I might have to borrow the idea.

  2. I'm a little thankful that your students are missing their periods/capital letters etc. My second graders are too and it's driving me crazy! I may try that Frame of Fame idea!
