Monday Made It! (a day late...)

Well, if there's one thing I've learned this summer about having a new baby around - there is NO getting things done on MY schedule! This sweet boy rules the roost :) When he's hungry, I feed him. When he's cranky, I soothe him. When he's tired, I put him to sleep. When he's sleeping...I blog-stalk and pin away clean or rest. ;)

So, needless to say, I haven't been nearly as productive with school stuff as I was hoping to be this week... so I have more digital stuff to share instead of hands-on projects. Oh well - these need to get done, too! And they don't require me toting my baby around to multiple stores looking for the perfect pieces for my projects!

#1 - Pacing Guides for the year:
I have made these for all 4 quarters, but need to meet with my great teamies in order to decide which order we want to teach our math skills in next year. We also need to come up with many more "for fun" topics! I just plugged in the main holidays and whatnot. I was inspired by this post by Made for 1st Grade:

#2 - First Day Magnet saying:
I typed this up really quickly to have ready for the first day of school. I will print them on colored cardstock and have my kiddos attach them to a clothespin with their picture, just as seen in my inspiration pin:
