Last Monday of the Summer {Monday Made It}

This is my last Monday off this summer. I go back to school on Thursday and the kiddos come back on August 6th. Yikes! I can't believe it's already time and I'm not quite ready yet. I've been working in overdrive to get through my long to-do list and that means I've been making some things, so I get to link up with Tara for this week's Monday Made It! 

I'm gonna spare you the very boring paperwork, tedious to-the-minute lesson plans, and copies I've made this week! I'm also still hoping there is a little classroom fairy that will be visiting me this week. If you see her please tell her I'm waiting....

I've been spending a lot of time in my classroom working on getting things in order. I've been using my Silhouette to cut out some bulletin board letters. 

This one will be for the display where students will store their brag tags. 

This one will go on a narrow little window on the door in my classroom. 

The font I used is my favorite bulletin board font of all times - MTF Jumpin' Jack

I am so excited about having the beginnings of my bulletin boards up. I have to share just a little sneak peak. 

Remember the rocking chair? I found the green cushion at Pier 1. 

I gave this little Back to School Freebie a face lift this week. 

Click on the picture to download it! This was one of my favorite activities to do with older kids on first day of school! 

And finally I have a home made it. 

I canned green beans! I think fresh green beans are the prettiest shade of green. Really, I think they should be their own paint color. Don't you?! It's just a happy color. 

These are gonna be so good when it's snowing outside!

    That rocking chair looks really sharp with that lime green pillow!!
