Made It Monday and Freebie

It is almost almost Monday and I am having mixed feelings.  I have one official week of summer left, however I can finally get into my classroom and I have LOTS to do!  So my plan is to work hard in my classroom for the first part of the week and then hopefully have Thursday and/or Friday to relish my last day of summer.

Enough about me and my world!  I love blog world on Mondays.  Two of my favorite linkys happen every Monday, Manic Monday and Made-It Monday.  Not only do I enjoy linking up to share, I really love blog stalking hopping to find all of the great things out there.

I have two things to share for Made It Monday this week.

Every year most of us start out with some type of an All About Me poster.  I have done this in the past too, but this year I wanted something different.  I created a template for an All About Me Dodecahedron.  (In case you are wondering what in the heck a dodecahedron is, it is a 12 sided 3D shape.)  I am taking All About Me 3D!  You can get it at my TpT store here.

The students will complete the 12 pages writing and drawing, assemble and then share with one another.  I will hang them in the room for Open House.  I think the students will be so excited to use their new school supplies to make these.  I do think they will take a while to complete, but will be worth it in the end.

My next Monday Made It is a charging station.  Last year, I was lucky enough to have several iPods for the class.  I loved them for the students, but they laid all over my desk while they were charging.  This year I am getting several iPads too and needed a solution for charging.  Here is what I came up with!

It is a small dish drainer I got at the mart for like $7.  I had to bend the wire a little bit and moved the silverware cup to the side.  There is a power strip behind the basket and I wrapped the charger ends around the wire to keep them in place.  It will be perfect and it was cheap too!  Click here to download the labels free.
