I am in one of those blah moods where I just don't feel like doing anything! I know it is Sunday and totally forgot to do a spotlight! I know tomorrow is Monday, but have not crafted all week! I am heading into work tomorrow to help out with 4 days of Common Core planning. I did sign up for it, my principal is paying and feeding the 12 of us that are coming in, which is nice, but I think the reality has started to sink in:( That school is right.around.the.corner.and.I.don't.like.it!
I decided not to do the dog tags and do something a bit different. I ordered my necklaces today! I found colored ones on Etsy that I couldn't pass up! These are all the different colors you can order. Click on the picture to take you to the shop! I got 30 for $18.00. Now, I found 30 silver ones for $9.00...but I really wanted the colored ones:)
I ordered I, L, M, and O
I plan on keeping these necklaces and at the end of the year transferring their beads to some kind of string necklace that they can keep.
I made pendants to add at the bottom of the necklaces instead of the dog tags! I will write their names on the back!
I also went to Michaels and got the pony beads.I bought the big bag for $3.50 thanks to a 50% off coupon. They will be used for each 100 minutes read. The star ones will be used for every 1,000 minutes read or 500. I haven't decided yet. And I forgot one more packet. I want another special bead for completing a monthly reading project. I am working on those projects now!
Another project I am working on is this...I like giving my students about 10 options each month for spelling homework. It worked well last year, but I would like to get them done so I don't have to worry about it the whole school year:)
I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! My hubby made some very tasty Hawaiian dish for dinner tonight! I love when he cooks things from his home! Enjoy your evening!
DON'T forget my giveaway ends tonight! It's not too late to enter:)
