April Made It :)

I've been creating some things for my classroom again {finally}.  It's been a long......slow............winter.  It just bogs me down.  Does it do that to any of you?

Here are a few things that I've made for my classroom:

We worked hard the week before spring break on Customary Measurement.  When we return we will be working on the Metric System.
Here's a preview...I haven't added it to my store yet, but I will link it up as soon as I do:  It is now available in my TpT store:

My students made these:

And they look so nice on what was a very empty bulletin board {gasp}!


At home, I finally sewed some curtains for the kitchen.  It has been painted since October and I finally finished:

So there you have it. 

Go check out all of the other creativity out there with my friend, Tara:

  2. I LOVE the flowers your students made! Those are adorable! Where did you get the idea? The Metric Lap Book looks great! Makes me wish I taught math (ALMOST;) )

    I just love reading other 4th grade bloggers posts! Thanks for sharing :)

    1. I knew I needed something for my bulletin board that was generic enough to get us through testing week in May and I thought flowers were perfect. I couldn't find what I wanted on TpT, so I made my own :) I'm going to post them later this week!

  3. Love the curtains! We have a similary window set up in our breakfast area and I've been trying to figure out what I want to do there. This would be perfect!

  4. We have a similar window where our table is too...I'd say that I should make some curtains, but that could end tragically- I should totally just hire you!! ;O) (because apparently you have too much time on your hands!!) just kidding!

    I can't wait to see the metric lapbook. I will BUY that one once it's linked up since you are way to generous and give so much away!! :O)

    Hope you rested over the weekend and are feeling better!

  5. Elizabeth,
    I am intrigued by your flowers. What is written on the cards? I teach a K/1 combo and am thinking your art project might be a great way to link our studies in measurement and plants.

    P.S. I love reading your blog even though I teach a very different grade.

    1. My students wrote about measurement (since that is what we are learning right now) and I put a title on the board about it. I'm going to be posting about that soon.....stay tuned :)

  7. I was hoping you were going to make a Metric Lapbook, I was even going to ask you if you were - but I didn't want to seem pushy! I am so happy that you did! Your bulletin board looks great!

  14. Love the new curtains!! Also, I have been trying to convince my principal we need to come and observe your math set-up. (She's not buying it) But I think one of my teachers is interested in doing it with guided math groups!! Enjoy your week off!!

  15. I LOVE your measurement lapbook! The curtains look awesome. It makes me wish I had learned to sew. I'll admit I used hot glue to hang the curtains in my classroom and make a hem on them. Sad, I know.

    Enjoy the rest of your week!
