Monday Made It! Woo-Hoo!!

Well, I've been busy and it seems like I have nothing to show for it.  Yes, I'm still waiting to get into my classroom but I've been blogstalking and have seen so many wonderful classrooms. I think I'm suffering from teacher envy.  I did manage to make something in time for Made It Monday (I always seem to finish projects but not in time to post by Monday).  I have succomed  to Pinterest and made my teacher file boxes- like about a million other teachers.  I decided to use my transparencies again to label so if I have to change the contents of the drawer I can just update the transparency "label."  I have a million of these things and don't use them since I have a document camera.  I made 2 boxes - one for "teachery" stuff and on for game pieces and parts.  Here's a pic.

My inspiration...

Well, I'm trying to squeeze in  a few more projects before I can finally get into my  room on Thursday.  Keep posting those classroom pics.  I love all the wonderful classroom ideas.  I can't wait to use your inspiration in my own classroom.

  1. I love your teacher boxes! I bought the same style that was your inspiration, originally blue and spray painted it purple. I plan on making my labels and doing all of that fun stuff on Thursday after I see my classroom. I love your idea of using transparencies for the labels...I was thinking vellum paper for mine.

    I'm your newest follower. Come check my crafts out and keep your eyes peeled for my teacher box soon!
