It has really kept me on track.
I have been a productive fool this week.
For school, I have been working on some posters. Here are a couple.
My school has a poster printer, so I am printing them 11x17, hopefully. :)
I included one of them as a freebie!
(Thanks Middle Grades Maven for the frame graphics.)
Also, this year I have committed to not having a teacher desk, just a teacher table. (Much smaller! The desk in my new classroom could have doubled as a boat! My coblogger Antoinette would know, it used to be hers!)
So, the teacher toolbox will assist in my organization of "stuff."
The funniest part of this, is that my fabulous 6th grade teacher had one, back in the early 90s.
Like all things in education, I guess good storage ideas go through a cycle.
For my personal Made it, I had some baby gifts to make.
I like to make baby shower gifts as personal as possible, using iron on transfer paper.
I am not a mom, so I feel like I can give cute, not always, practical stuff.
(Moment of truth, I am NEVER buying someone, even a family member, anything related to breast feeding. I skip that part of the registry. A little too personal!)
Idea from a previous baby gift:
For this baby shower, I created:
They were a big hit. (A little warning, the onesies have to be washed before the baby drools on them, the ink may run.)
Also, my sister-in-law's b-day is coming up.
So, I helped my mother-in-law and 4 month old nephew make a gift for her.
|She doesn't read my blog so, there is no worry that she will see it before her b-day.|
On a personal note, this is my last officially work free week. Our district has an "academy" of optional trainings next week. I am opting in, and hope to share some of the info I learn. (I am actually teaching a class too! )
After that, it's a partial week of meetings for teacher leaders and teacher techs.
Then officially back to work.
I am so NOT ready to go back to a hectic schedule. Not yet!
Time marches on, happy creating during your last few weeks of freedom!
