J is for... {Giveaway Day 10} & Monday Made It!

 ***Be sure to read to the end of the post to enter my bloggy birthday alphapalooza giveaway!***

It's already the 5th of August! Yikes! Less than a month until back to school! That means it's time to kick it into high gear to get ready for the start of school! I was quite the slacker in July for Monday Made It. Now, I have some serious catching up to do to get ready in time! 

I wanted to create something that has been on my to do list for weeks now! (And something that I knew I wouldn't mess up *cough* *cough*) Those Copy, Grade, File drawers! However, it seemed that every place I looked had the ridged drawers and that wasn't going to work for me. I found a set at Walmart this weekend that were just what I had been looking for! I knew it was a Monday Made It meant to be moment! 

I got right to work whipping up a set of labels to put on those drawers and I am obsessed with how they turned out! I used the same papers as in my blog design for the creation so they are all matchy matchy. Love, love, love! Like seriously in love! Check them out for yourself below! 

I did an impromptu photo shoot using my fur rug as a backdrop. Pretty professional right? Well there you have it! Some blog design inspired drawer labels! Here are the papers that I used for the project if you are curious. Will you be making a set to match your blog design?

Thanks so much for hosting once again Tara! The crafting inspiration through this linky is endless!  Head on over to see what everyone else was up to this week!

Now back to the regularly scheduled giveaways!

  5. Great giveaway. Love how cute your container turned out. I love Mark D. Pencil

  6. I love the drawers you made for your classroom.

  7. I really NEED to use more music in my classroom, but my kiddos always love Dr. Jean songs!

  8. Those drawer labels are adorable! Will you be posting them in your TpT store?!?
    I would love to use them in my classroom!

  10. We are HUGE Just Dance Kids fans for recess (we only have outside recess twice a week...insane I know) and I am obsessed with Harry Kindergarten and he is found jamming in our room daily!

  11. Harry Kindergarten, Dr. Jean, and the old classics of Sharon, Lois and Bram, Raffi, and Fred Penner!

  12. We don't do a lot of singing in the classroom, but sometimes on Friday afternoons when we are doing art, I let them listen to the radio!

  13. I am NOT a singing kind of girl, but we loved a verb rap last year!

  14. Lol, I do not carry a tune well, so being in an upper grade singing was usually saved for birthdays!!

  15. Anything Dr. Jean!

  16. We sing a lot in my room. I have several song books I use. One of the first things I am going to teach them is a special "pigeon house" song that we will sing every day just before we go home. It has cute hand motions. My grandmother taught it to me when I was their age so that is why it is so special.

  17. We sing so much in my classroom I can't list them all, but we sing a hello song, then days of the week, months of the year and a song with classroom directions (assis, debout-sit down/stand up), song about animals, colors and general French nursery rhymes/songs (called "comptines").

  18. Dr. Jean & Heidi were big hits last year.

  19. We sing a lot of Schoolhouse Rock songs :)

  20. I sing a "name" song every single time I pass out a paper so they don't forget to write their name. We also listen to Jack Hartman songs on rainy day recesses!

  22. I love Dr. Jean's CD's.

  23. I teach 3rd and I have a test prep song that is Addams Family - I sing that ALOT!


  24. We listen to anything by Dance Kids to get the wiggles out! :)

  25. Is it horrible to say that we do not all? We do listen to Baby Mozart though :)

  26. I don't use much music in my classroom but we do some skip counting and money songs.
