I have been working on some more products for my TpT store.
Safari Classroom Decor - You can find it all broken down into different items here.
Pirate Classroom Decor - You can find it all broken down into different items here.
I did make a couple things for myself, too. (Next week, I hope to finish some more beach decor and paisley decor as well. I can't decide if I want to decorate with a beach theme or paisley and owls).
Claire at Live, Laugh, Love, Teach made these plastic bag dispensers out of Clorox wipes containers for a previous Monday Made It. I thought this was a genius idea. We always use plastic bags for all sorts of things since we have pets, and we have the bags stored all sorts of places. The original tutorial calls for using fabric and mod podge. I covered mine with my Xyron and scrapbook paper. It works. It dresses up the container a bit. I want to keep one here at home and one at school.
I wanted to make the bucket labels for sharpened and dull pencils. I know there are probably lots of these labels out there, but I made my own. You can get your own copy below if you like. I used the Dollar Tree containers again.
Pencil Sharpen Labels
For keeping track of grades, I found I hated using a gradebook because I did not want to write students names over and over. Plus, the little boxes were too tiny in my opinion. For me, I found it works better to make a little table and either write or print the students names and then copy it. I use one each week and record the grades on the paper while grading and then move it over to the computer system as I have time. I keep the sheets with the grades in my teacher binder in folders for each six weeks. You can get a copy of this little grading recorder below. It's simple, but effective.
