Since I missed last week’s Monday Made It, I’m here today with three completed projects!  First on the list is my new attendance board!
Yup, I found yet another use for those freebie numbers of mine!!  To make this board {if it isn’t obvious, lol} I used two baking sheets from Dollar Tree, printed-cut-laminated-cut-again my classroom numbers, and popped mini magnets on the back of the pieces:
Easy peasy!!  Of course, you could use any magnetic surface to make this attendance board {chalkboard, filing cabinet, fridge?}.

I made a major update to my classroom numbers freebie on TpT and added:
 *numbers up to 100
*I am here/not here today labels
*I am in the bathroom/nurse/office labels
*I am having hot lunch/cold lunch/my own lunch labels
*library sticks directions & label
Download your updated freebie {here}.  And can I just add that last I checked, 13,483 of my closest friends downloaded it?!?  WOW!!!

Moving on… my second project is a Box Tops holder.  I’ve been seeing them pop up on Pinterest and other blogs, and I knew I had to make one.  You see, Box Tops and I go way back.  Two years ago, my class collected 800 and we won a pizza party.  Last year, my class collected 1000 and somehow we lost.  So this year…. well this year, I’m going to bring it!!  And with my new fancy Box Tops holder, I just might win it again!! {I’m not competitive at all.} 😉
This was another easy one!  Here’s what I used:
The best part about using a Strawberry Nesquick container is that my Box Tops now smell like Strawberry Nesquick… it’s delicious!  To make it I just Mod Podged the zebra paper on, added a band of pink paper, Mod Podged over the paper for a nice finish, and hot glued a little label to the front.  Simple!!

And last but not least on my list is this:
This cutie has made it’s way around the blogosphere and it just landed here at my place!  The original idea comes from Mrs. Plum at There’s No Place Like Second Grade.  She has a little freebie packet to go with it, so check it out!!  Unfortunately, I could only find three lightbulb stress balls {at two different Targets!}, so let’s hope only three of my littles need to de-stress or brainstorm at a time! 😉

I hope you like my projects!  For more crafty goodness, visit Tara’s linky!

Before I leave you, I wanted to share an awesome website I found for discount school supplies!!  I was recently contacted by Discount Office Items by a sweet representative, asking me to check out their site from a teacher’s point of view!  Being an admitted “School Supply Addict,” I said “YES!” of course!  {Plus, it doesn’t hurt that I am going to get some goodies to try out and *share with YOU* in a giveaway later!!}

This site has a ton of products to offer!  You can pick up anything from pencils to dry erase boards, and even cute classroom decor like this:

 Best of all, they’re having a Back to School sale, AND they have a section just for teachers!  

Along with great discounts, this site also offers low, flat rate shipping on all orders… and free shipping on orders over $75!  Which isn’t hard to spend at all 😉
