Monday Made It...Brought me Back

So it's been a while since I real excuse just summer getting in the way of me being productive. I have been busy with some school stuff though and thought I'd link back up again today and share two projects.  

Math It Up! 

I've seen a lot of different versions on the web lately but this one I love! First of all - it was FREE! (I love free!)  I just printed the title and numbers from Teacher on the Loose (click here) on to some colourful cardstock and laminated them.  I just have the pieces laid out on a sheet of foam board for now.  I plan on keeping it on the foam board - that way I can just pull it out and use it as a station rather than have it take up precious wall space.  I'm undecided about whether or not to use sticky tack or velcro to keep the numbers in place. I want them to be easily changed, but no so easily that they'll fall off.  Am leaning towards the velcro...just have to cut 100+ pieces and get sticking! If you have any other great ideas, I'd love to hear them! (Okay...just finished writing this and then checked out Tara's post - Great minds thinking alike???? lol)

Next up...Quick Combinations 

 I love this! So quick, so easy and has so many functions!  My inspiration is a pinterest find (I've only just joined pinterest and it's been dangerous! Could be one of the reasons I haven't been blogging!) Anyway...the pin only had a picture and I don't know where it originally came from! If you know, please let me know so I can give credit!

 I just used scraps of laminated cardstock (left over from my Math It Up! project) and stapled them around the clothes hanger. Added some clothes pins and a white board.  I can see this being used as a whole class, small group and individual activity.  It's awesome!  Thanks to the creator, whoever you may be! 

Well that's all for today.  I officially have 3 weeks left of summer and plan to make the most of it (and not spent all of it on Pinterest!) 

Happy Monday everyone!
