Made it Monday!

I loved stalking all of the great ideas I found over at 4th Grade Frolics last week for Tara's first Made it Monday Linky Party! I wanted to join in the fun this week, although it's nothing too crazy or creative!

Here is my inspiration:

Here's how I made it my own!
{The background paper is from melstampz.blogspot.com. She has TONS of cute free papers/backgrounds!!}

I thought it was so important that I borrow these words of affirmation for my kiddos - I teach at a Title 1 school, and many of my students have dealt with more stuff in their lives than I have in my almost 29 years! I want to make sure that when they are in my room, they know they are loved and valued. I will frame this in a white frame and display it somewhere that is visible at all times throughout our day!

If you like what you see and would like a personalized PDF for yourself, feel free to leave me a comment with your email address and last name - I'll change it and send your way! :-)

Next week, I hope to have a more hands-on activity to link up with... go check out all of the other great ideas and maybe you'll be inspired, too!!

  15. I just found your blog and it's adorable. I'm your newest follow :) I love the sign you made. I also teach at a title 1 school and it breaks my heart somedays with the stories these kids tell. They go through WAY too much and know WAY too much about life at such a young age. God bless you for working in a title 1 school too!!! I know how hard it is, but isn't sooooo rewarding!?! :)

    Dirty Hands and Lesson Plans
