Monday Made It {August 5, 2013} & Last Day to Save

Happy Monday!  I hope the sun is shining wherever you are!!

Since it's Monday, it's time to catch up with Tara and 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It!
Compared to last week, this has been a relatively slow crafting week for me.  I've worked on creating a few things for my TpT Shop and my classroom.

I saw something very similar to this one day while I was cruising around Pinterest.  (I didn't pin it however, so I don't know who to give the credit to.  Please let me know if this is your idea so I can give you credit!  :)

I want to use more inquiry based learning this year.  This Wonderings Wall will be a great place for kids to ask questions or wonderings simply by writing them on a Post-It and placing their thought on the Wall.  Consider it a very visual "W" in a KWL!

And as I'm looking at this picture, I'm "wondering" why I didn't glue the word "Wonderings" on straight.  Hmmmmm.....
Made these Writer's Toolboxes for my students using a slider pencil case, some erasers, a pencil, a highlighter, a pen and a Synonym Ring from Joanne Miller at Head Over Heels for Teaching.
I made the Writer's Toolbox Label (Superhero Theme) and you can get it from my TpT Store if you'd like to make your own.

I saw something very similar to this Back to School student gift at Stellar Students during last Monday's MMI.  The design she showed was a little more primary so I made these for my 4th graders.  These are a freebie in my TpT Store!  Just print and attach to a glow stick and leave them on your students' desks on Back to School Night and you're sure to get your year glowing smoothly!  :)

Just a reminder that TODAY is the last day for my Super Sale at my TpT ShopHappy shopping!

  5. I love your wonderings wall!! I started using inquiry based learning last year and will continue this year as well. I had a "Wonder Wall" last year and that image is circulating around pinterest but it may not be the one that inspired you.
    My kids loved the wonder wall and we did a bunch of non-fiction writing using their wonderings.
    I'll have to check in here to see how inquiry is going for you through out the year, it's always nice to read from other people who are starting to try more inquiry!


  6. I love your wondering wall! I use one as well that my kids and I love. Yours looks super cute!

  7. A "Wondering Wall" is a great idea. I really wish I had more wall space!

    Enjoy the final days of summer!

  12. I'm a new follower on Google! Great idea for the writer's toolbox. I love that my students would have everything all in one spot instead of spending 10 minutes of their writing time "looking" for those things.

  13. What a great idea with the Wondering Wall! I really, really dig that! I have an empty door that I could use for that!
