Student Monday Made It

My boyfriend of 3 1/2 years (Michael) and I just got back from Lake George, NY.  We had so much fun even if it was only for a night... and I treated myself a little to the outlets :] I never spend money on myself, so it was worth it!!

I am linking up with the wonderful, amazing Tara for her Monday Made It linky : ) But today.... it's my KIDS that "Made It"!
My last and final reading project was due a few weeks ago with my kids... Thanks to Krista from Stellar Students, my kids had a ball with her Book Report Projects. Look below of a classic favorite of The Lion, "The Witch, and the Wardrobe", "The Incredible Hulk", and a wonderful story about the military.  My kiddos did such a great job!!

After I took down my CAFE chart (which I am kicking myself for not taking a picture of it this year!) I decided it would be a great idea for my kids to decorate the wall... see below, boy did they love it :) So sweet and cute... each of the colored construction papers has their names and what they loved about school.  Then they got to draw all over it.  My favorite line says, "I never had so much fun ever :)" - How can my heart not melt?... What wonderful, amazing kids.
My last picture of what my kids made were remember my Sand paper t shirts?  They were from way back in November... well, I decided to try them again with my kids!! This is a collaborative picture of my kids using crayon on sandpaper again.. and I ironed them on. 
The only problem is that this sand paper project... ONLY works with white tees... don't do red tees like we did ;)
What you need:
white tee shirt(s)
crayons (crayola preferably!)
sand paper
iron

Make sure you iron on the sand paper back and forth for about a minute... you want the color to stick as much as possible.  Machine wash cold like normal, and it stays!!


Thank you so much for stopping by!! I am in the process of making "I Can" statements for 3rd grade... half page statements.... Hope you can check them out soon when they are finished ;)

    1. Of course!! And yes, my kiddo said I was the only one that could touch any of the cars, but they had to remain "realistic" and "turned over like the Hulk would do" hehe!
