Everybody dance now!
I'm linkin' up with my sweet friend Tara
from 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It.
This week I was on the struggle bus on what to make because
I'm in California visitin' my parents.
Aren't they so cute?
I'm sure you can understand...I haven't really
been thinkin' too much about school stuff
other than missin' my Rockstars.
I did get into our private class Instagram account
and started browsin' pictures from all of the things
we accomplished throughout the school year.
Creatin' a private account is a great way to keep
parents involved with what is goin' on in our room.
Anyways...I'll pulled up pics from when
we spent a mornin' full of
multiplication and a well-known
wizard and I knew I needed to share
with you the results.
I'm bringin' back somethin' that I actually made and wrote about last summer.
my students are goin' to FLIP over.
No really...they are goin' to squeal when
I give this to them and aren't even goin' to complain
about doin' math.
I am in love, love, love with my
I didn't have any students with me this summer to show
this in action, so I
my amazin' mommy and her sweet friend Pris
into playin' the game.
They whined about not bein' able to use
a calculator (sound familiar),
but they finally agreed to do it
the old school way."

love if you download this product.)
I was able to test this out in my classroom and I
was CORRECT...the kids FLIPPED!
Look at all those smiles....those were GENUINE smiles...NOT prompted.
There was tons of excitement and chatter as the kids moved around
to solve the multiplication problem on each character task card.
What a great multiplication motivator!
I will definitely be pullin' this back out after everyone
has mastered their facts and earned their
Fact Family Behavior Beads that I wrote about HERE last week.
Two summers ago I made a lot of recycled wine cork crafts for
one of my Monday Made Its.
You can read about them HERE from my post
My Daddy Rose grows grapes...grapes for wine.
Lots of grapes have to be tested to make sure they
are okay for the rest of us to consume...well not me...right now.
I took the corks that have been saved for me the past
two years and put them to good use to make some
decorations for my parents lil' wine storage room.
I just hot glued the corks on to a cardboard letter "R".
I think it turned out perfectly and matches the storage room.
Below are some previous wine cork crafts.
I'm lookin' forward to hoppin' over to 4th Grade Frolics to see
what everyone else has made and
to get some much needed inspiration!
Happy Monday, friends!
