Monday Made It with a possible giveaway!

The summer Mondays are dwindling down and that makes me very sad:( My projects have turned into more lessons that fun crafts! Thanks Tara over at 4th grade Frolics for making Mondays so awesome:)

So today I present a few items I have made to use this school year. At the very end, I will ask another question and if you can guess it right I will email all my Monday Made it creations for free:)


Project 1. Super Spellers Club
So this year I want to showcase my students who do well at their spelling tests! I find that many kids just don't care about practicing throughout the week and then on Friday's it shows! So my plan is to have a Super Spellers Club board set up in my room. When they get their first 100% on a test they will enter the club. They will get some kind of pendant to place on the board. After that, for each 100% they get I will give them a sticker to place on their pendant. This is just a small showcase of their hard work and getting 100%. 

Project 2. Frogtastic Spellers Club
I did the same thing as above, but made it frog themed! I am undecided which one I will use!

Project 3. Topics to write about
During center time, I want to give students more options to write about. I have created writing task cards, but I wanted something more visual on the board for them to choose instead of flipping though cards. I plan on placing these in a pocket cart or something like that to display these cards. I have 56 cards in all!




Project 4: No homework pass
Last Monday Made it I talked about how I do rewards for homework. When students turn in their homework they get to put their name on the back of a ticket. On Friday's I am going to roll a dice to see how many tickets I will pull out for a winner. So if I role a 3, I will pull 3 winners. Well, what will those winners win? I have thought about this over and over. This is my plan! Each student will get a punch ticket. If their name is pulled out, they will get a punch on their punch pass. Once all the punches are punched they will get a free homework pass. I thought about giving students a free homework pass when their ticket is called, but then I will be giving free homework passes each week and I don't think I want to do that. So here they are! What do you think? I am thinking of making a few themes too! Not sure!

Project 5. Frogtastic sticks
I used these last year as table top awards. When a table was doing what they were supposed to be doing or helping each other, working together they got to color in a letter. When all the letters were colored in, they got a prize. I am hoping to do this again this year.  
 
Well that's it for now! 
I will be placing all of these items in my TPT and TN stores later this afternoon...BUT...
Here is how you can win all of these items for free:)

  15. The running thingy next to a sweaty lady and older guy, lol. As you can tell I have no idea. Your Monday make-it's are so cute. I love the spelling idea but I think you need to do a Hawaii/beach theme (so it benefits me), giggle. I love the table idea

  30. Do you already have your winner? I'm a huge fan and so I'll guess that your fav activity is getting a drink from a juice bar? My former gym didn't have one but I've heard some gyms do - maybe that's why I quit? LOL I wish that was my excuse!

  32. Hmmmmm....I have a "gym" in my basement with elliptical, treadmill, and DVD player, but it seems those have been taken. What about the bicycles or stair climber? No one has guessed those yet.
