My First Monday Made It!!!!

I have been wanting to link up with Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics every week since it started ... I would pin my little heart out with tons of ideas, but never got around to making anything ... so finally I got busy yesterday and a little today!!  Here is what I have made so far ...

I'm so excited about the Boggle Game ... I used a cookie sheet from the $ Store, and I think it turned out super cute!!  This was my first time using Mod Podge and I was nervous when I first brushed it on, but It sure did dry clear, thank goodness!

 I added the stickers to help spruce it up!!

Cutting out over 100 letters and adding magnets to the back was my least favorite part of this project!

Next up, is the this cool management piece which I saw all over pinterest!  Again so excited about how it turned out!

Objective display! I have the signs on my Teacher's Notebook Store.

I loved this Reading game, and got excited when I found the trays at the $ Store!!!  So I snagged 4 of them, I plan to make 2 fiction like the one you see below, and also 2 nonfiction!  I got the idea from Life In First Grade, check her blog out if you haven't, she has awesome ideas!!

Well thats it for now, I will have a lot more in the coming weeks!!!  Nothing like waiting all summer long to finally get things done :-)


  1. LOVE the idea of placing the objectives on the classroom door. Brilliant.

  2. I love your numbers on your management sheet - how did you make them?

  3. I wish I knew what they were called, so I will do my best to describe what I did ...
    First of all everything I got was from Hobby Lobby in the scrapbooking section. The numbers are 1 in circles, they are like the flat clear marbles, but I found ones that had adhesive on the bottom, then I punched 1in circles and put number stickers on each and then the flat marble on top, so you see the paper and numbers through the bottom. I hope that makes sense :)

  4. They also have the marbles at the dollar tree but without the adhesive. I love this project! I am going to try it.

  6. When using the objective display, do you use dry erase markers? Also, are you planning to write the objectives daily?

  7. I will use dry erase markers and I'm thinking I will write them weekly.

  8. Love your Boggle board. Any chance you could share the directions, more step-by-step? How did you begin? Are the red/orange squares paper? What about the blue and yellow color strips between them? Tape? Paint? etc. It's so amazing and I'd like to do something similar but quite frankly don't know how to begin.
