Monday Made It & Must Have Monday

It's Monday!!!! 

I am  not yet in vacation mode because I am teaching summer school. I am still in school making mode. 

So, my Monday Made Its are all school related. 

First, I saw something on Pinterest and it sparked me to make these: 

They are available here

I am teaching 5th graders during summer school. I am specifically teaching fifth graders who failed our state test twice and have to take it a third time in two weeks. I will have three sections, each with ten kids. 

I want to keep it interesting for them and for me. I have been searching through our summer school curriculum and creating small group and station type work. But, also since it is summer, I am not reinventing the wheel. I am printing and laminating activity masters. 

If you follow me, you may know I bought a Scotch laminator. If it moves, I am laminating it!!!! I LOVE this thing and am getting the most use of it possible. Best school purchase ever!!! 

And since it is summer.... 

My Must Have Monday will not be school related. It will be baseball related. 

Our life revolves around my 7 year olds baseball. We spent 5 hours on Saturday at baseball. It was H-O-T! 
These three things are essential: 

Happy Monday all!

  3. I am a laminating addict too! I even laminated my kids' chore chart for the fridge. :) Good luck with summer school. Looks like you are coming up with some fun ideas!
