Monday Made It

Today I am joining up with 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It. I have been wanting to join in since I started blogging, but never had.

This summer my daughter, Regan, has been going to the art camps offered at Michael's on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Every week they focus on a different continent with their art projects. Here she is making her pyramid with a mummy inside.

While she is making her crafts, I am required to stay in the store for two hours. Do you know how hard it is to stay in Michael's and not buy anything! It's only happened one time so far and that's because I left my teacher ID at home. One of the items I have been trying to work on was a title sign for when my students get an 85% or higher on their tests. Most of the teachers at my school have kids sign a bulletin board that says something about all-star students. The math teacher on my team has her Mathletes and has a different poster board for each snapshot (quiz) or test that the students sign. If they got a 100%, they get to sign a gold medal and glue it onto the poster board the rest of the students sign. At first I was going to go with Owl-some instead of awesome and have the 100s sign an owl, but that seemed so elementary school. I wanted to come up with something my students could really get into and that's where Regan's classes come into play. Two weeks ago, Michael's had their 12 X 12 scrapbook papers on sale and I saw one with mustaches on it and it made me think. A number of my students wear t-shirts with mustaches and jewelry with mustaches and use duct tape with mustaches to cover everything. So I got on my phone and searched for sayings with mustaches in it and found one. FAN{TACHE}TIC! And a light bulb went off. I went running around the store and this is what I came up with:

I used black foam board, 2 pieces of mustache paper, 4" black letters, 4" silver letters, and a few glitter mustaches to make my title sign. I love it and can't wait to hang it on a wall in my classroom!

I even found this print out over at Creator's Joy to use for my kids who get a 100% on a snapshot or test.

Until next time.
