My FIRST Monday Made It!

Happy Monday!! So, this summer I have been working like a crazy person making and creating new things for my classroom. For some reason, Mondays just come and go and I totally forget about Monday Made It's! My friend and co-worker Ms. R over at Miss R's Room had told me about this linky fun a while back, however I just kept forgetting to share my creations. BUT today, that changes! I'm so excited to link up with 4th Grade Frolics for my first Monday Made It! Check out my creations!

1.) Behavior Chart

So, as I'm sure you've gathered from reading the title of my blog, my classroom theme this year is "Wild About Learning". I have slowly been in the process of gathering and creating items all summer long to turn my classroom into a modern day jungle where my little wild things will be excited to learn and explore. My first creation was my new clip chart/behavior chart:
::I know the quality of the pictures aren't great... stick with me though, this only my firs made it post, it's got to get better right?! :) ::
The behavior chart has the 7 levels- Of course kids start on Green (Ready for an Adventure), then can go up from there- Purple (On Track), Blue (Roaring Choices), Pink (Jungle Leader). Children can also clip down- Yellow (Bumpy Road Ahead 1st Warning), Orange (Safari Map Needed Teacher's Choice), Red (Lost in the Jungle Parent Contact).

2.) Jobs Chart

Keeping the wild theme alive- My Jungle Jobs Chart
This one is pretty self explanatory. Jobs will be switched out every week, allowing each student to take part in each job.

3.) "I Can" subject headers
I created these to put up on our white board. They have magnets on the back. I'll write the objective or "I Can" statement for each subject underneath the subject header for the day. ::Not pictured:: I have created green stars that will go under each topic to write what each subject's homework is for the night. I'm sure I'll post pics once I get it all set up in class soon ;)

4.) Exit ticket chart "What Stuck with You?"

Let me just start by saying, I am pretty much in love with how this chart turned out! I created this for students to place exit tickets (informal assessments) in corresponding to their class number. I'll then be able to check the tickets later to see who grasps the concept or needs more help/time. I created the zebra numbers and glued them onto these neon library pockets. It was kind of a spur of the moment creation, but I find those usually turn out the best!

So there you have it! Monday Made It #1!! I will tell you, I have MANY other creations, but what's the fun in giving it all away on the first time!
Stay tuned and see ya soon!
