Well, it is Monday, so that means it's time to link up with Tara over at Fourth Grade Frolics for another Monday Made It! I so love this linky. I am constantly amazed at the wonderful, crafty things everyone is making! It has honestly been an inspiration each week to get things accomplished. Plus I keep finding new blogs to follow which equals new friends and more great ideas!
MMI #1- Home Communication CenterSo for my MMIs this week I have one for home that I have been putzing with for a while now and think I may have it to a finishing point. This is my home communication center. I have a narrow hallway that everyone must pass through to get to the kitchen and the upstairs (where their bedrooms are) so I decided to use the wall space as my home communication center.
MMI #2 A Behavior Clip chart.My next project was a behavior clip chart. I have never used on in my room before, but know I have a group coming up that might need the visual reminder on how we need to work in the classroom. I decided I wanted my chart to be magnetic, so I used a flat cookie sheet, then I made little number tiles to go with it. (I'm debating on making them a little smaller and using these for posting late/missing work on my whiteboard). I am really pleased with how this came out. I am working on making data binder sheets and created one to go with the chart that the kids will fill in for each day.
My final MMI for this week is a document I created to share with my teammates/students for citing sources. As part of the Common Core, one of the things that students must be able to do is cite the resources they use in research. For the past couple of years I have been pretty loose about how the students did this (basically just the title and the author) and none of our time did it the same way, so here enters my new resource. I still tried to keep it basic but have more information included along with a prescribed format for both print materials and online materials.
Well, that's it for me for this week's MMI. Off to see what some of my favorite bloggers were crafting for this week.
Until next time...
