Made It Monday!

I realize I have already posted this morning, but I was kind of productive today and wanted to link up with Tara's Monday Made It.
I have been wanting to make one of the teacher toolkits that have been all over Pinterest, and I finally got one almost finished this weekend.  I still need to decide what labels I want for the last couple of drawers.  This was a really fun and easy project!
Then I was inspired by these 2 projects from Pinterest:

Here are my versions:

I created the "We are at..." sign from clip art from JW Illustrations and then used my ATG gun to attach it to a piece of metal roof flashing that I got at Home Depot or Lowe's.  We will use a magnet to show where we are.  The Welcome sign is made up of 8" circles created from background paper, also from Jessica's adorable Wizard of Oz clip art, and then laminated.  I may put the circles together with ribbon or I may just hang each one separately outside my classroom.
I also started to make some word wall cards to go with my new word wall.  I decided to use "Popcorn Words" this year so I am using movie and popcorn theme clip art for the cards.  today I worked on the words that go with the district's prescribed word families. Here's a peek:

After all this and the canoeing I did yesterday, I think I will sleep well tonight!
