Monday Made It! #2

It is Monday so that means Monday Made It! I was on vacation last week so this is week 2 for me, but week 3 for everyone else. So, I had almost two weeks and was able to get three, yes three, projects done. They were easy and took about 45 minutes total :)

Project #1 - Teacher Binder
Looking through all the great ideas on Tara's 4th Grade Frolics blog inspires me to get back in touch with the first year teacher that is still in me. This week I made a teacher binder to hold all my important information. I borrowed the idea from Beyond the Grade..... I like to be organized but as the year goes on I end up with things in different places. Now it will all be in one place. This is such a great and simple idea, not sure why it took me 6 years to do it. 

I used scrap-booking paper I had for the cover. It is a bit blurry, but says Mrs. Bryan's Teaching Binder.

This tab is for lesson plans.

This tab is for Meeting Notes.

         This tab is for Student Data - 4th Grade. Because I have two classes of students, I made separate tabs for each set of data.

This tab is for Student Data - 5th Grade

This tab is for Calendars/Schedules

This is a misc. tab, for all the things that we get at the last minute :)

Project #2 - Clothesline Art Work Display

I have decided that each week I am going to do something with or for my silly, busy toddler. This week I was able to get two things done.  

I found this idea on Pinterest awhile ago and just got around to putting it up. This took about 10 minutes to put up. I used pink and green ribbon for the lines to match the other colors in the room. Originally, I used clothespins but they were to heavy so I switched to paper clips. Now I have a perfect place to show off all my little girls great art. 



Project #3 - Toddler Fun Box

My second project was this fun magician's wipe box. This was another Pinterest idea. It was easy and my little girl loved it.
 First, I cut old fabric that I had into strips. I was not neat about this, it will be pulled and played with :)

 Next, I tied the strips together.

 Picture of all the pieces put together.

Finally, I put the pieces into the box with one end hanging out.
