Things To Do:

This is an usual post for me, but this is what happens in the middle of the summer when my inspiring, useful posting options are dwindling.  Sorry I can't guarantee this will be inspiring or useful to any of you, but it sure was for me!

Look what I found on Pinterest.  Click on the picture to find its owner.  Somebody is for sure talented.


I really wanted one of my own, so after an evening spent with some scrapbook paper, Mod Podge, an old frame, and some paint, this is what I came up with.  (The color scheme matches my classroom.)


Not too shabby.  I'm pretty sure the walls of my classroom and the little lives within will benefit from this daily list of things to do.

Thanks Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for letting me link up with a little bit of craftiness of my own.
