Monday Made It: Classroom Decor & More

Once again, I'm linking up with 4th Grade Frolics for another edition of Monday Made It

Since I am changing the colors of my classroom, I wanted to add a few cute decorations that would match the new theme. I made this R to be displayed behind my desk, or to hang outside my classroom door. I haven't quite made up my mind yet! Nonetheless, I'm excited to display this somewhere in my new first grade classroom!

This initial was pretty easy to make. I bought the giant R at a local craft store on sale for $10. I also purchased several sheets of scrapbook paper in my classroom colors and little letters to spell my last name.

To make the collage, I simply ripped the paper and used mod-podge to glue it to the letter. 

Once the mod-podge had dried, I used a sharp X-Acto knife to cut away the extra paper. 
*Disclaimer* I am pretty awful with the knife! 

A little hot glue held the letters in place. 

And, there you have it! My craft project is ready to be displayed!

Since school is just around the corner, I am working on project, after project to get my classroom ready! I knew that I would need another set of number posters to add to my calendar area.
 I love, love, love ten frames and visual math, so I was sure to add ten frames to each number poster. 
Since first graders learn how to tally, I also added a spot for tallies.
 I can't wait to print these and hang them up!

What projects are you working on? 

If you haven't already, take a look at this week's Monday Made It for some classroom inspiration!
