Monday Made It

Good Morning!
 Oh my goodness where did June go and why is there school stuff already out in the stores!! I feel like we just started vacation and already we are prepping to go back. Summer seems faster as a grown up than it did when I was a kid. Although I am definitely more productive during the summers than I was when I was a kid which is why I am linking up with Fourth Grade Frolics for her Monday Made It to show you what I have been working on. 

One of my favorite things that I did with my students last year was a Thankful Thoughts book. Each week we had to right something that we were thankful for and at the end of the year it became a book. It was a great way to get my kiddos to focus on all that they have been blessed with in their lives. Since I am moving to second grade this coming year I did an update to this file. For my first grades they had half page sheets that they filled out. This year they will be writing on quarter sheets that I will put on a binder ring. The file on TpT now has the half pages and the quarter pages so that you have an option of what you want to do in your classroom.
Last year I made number posters up to 30 with base ten, tallies, and the number word for my math classes. I really liked the way they turned out so this summer I made alphabet posters using the same colors. I then made some in red and black as well just for fun. 

These are the only completed items to share with you today. I have a few other projects that should be finished soon.

Have a wonderful day!
