Monday Made It... More Classroom Decor!

Today is my last free Monday.
School starts tomorrow!!!
I will have 6 periods of anywhere from 19-28 brand new, little 6th graders!!!
I just might throw up. lol
Just kidding.
No really....
I am FREAKING out!!!

If you know me at all, you know I am OBSESSED with minions and Despicable Me.
Well, a few weeks ago we went to the county fair and I could not win a unicorn.
I tried and tried and tried. Spent a bunch of money. And lost. Darn carnival games.
Well this little guy arrived yesterday and

I'm linking up with 4th Grade Frolics for today's Monday Made it!

I am so proud of this!!! Today I hung up a banner that says "Sudoku"
Every week I'll put up a new puzzle for students to solve. 
They'll have an entire week to complete and turn in the puzzle.
Students who complete and get it all correct will get one bonus point.
On the counter next to the game I have a container with blank sudoku puzzles.

I made this Truman Award Nominee banner early last week. 
I finally finished decorating the rest of the bulletin board.
Students will "tweet" a book review after they finish one of the ones posted.
We're also going to set class goals on how many books we can read this year.

Finally, I made this with a friend for her classroom. 
She's a 6th grade ELA teacher so we turned my Sudoku board into a Boggle board!!
She'll switch out the letters every week.

And last but not least... I am super excited to announce that my 
Donors Choose project has been fully funded!!!!
It only took just a few short days. 
I am sincerely grateful for everyone that donated!!
Soon I will have brand new books on their way to my classroom!!!

Anyway, wish me luck tomorrow!!!


  1. I love your Boggle wall! I have used it on my SmartBoard before but I have never thought to post it on the wall like that! What a great idea!!! LOVE!

  2. I love your blog and am excited to be a new follower!! Yeah to being another middle school blogger! I love your Sudoku puzzle and was thinking of adding something like that in my classroom but many of my students do not know how to play it. Do you teach your students how to play in the beginning?


  3. Love your giant Sudoku board. I might have to borrow that idea for my classroom. :)
