Homework Tracker

   Hi Friends! I am so excited to link up with 4th Grade Frolics for my first ever Monday made it! Today I am going to share with you how I plan to track my student's homework. I originally saw this idea on Pinterest with a cute little pizza tin and stone magnets. I have changed it up a bit to fit with my new classroom theme. 

To make this project I first went to Jo-Ann's and found this adorable blue magnetic board. I also found stickers that matched my new classroom theme, and letter stickers that matched the lettering I use on my bulletin boards. 

Next, I stuck the stickers to some pretty green card stock and laminated them. Once my lamination was cut out I numbered each sticker and glued a magnet to the back. 

In my classroom homework is due every Friday. I plan on using this homework tracker to help me see which students have completed all of their homework in a given month. If a student does not turn in their homework they will move their magnet to the back of the blue magnetic board. 

At the end of the month the students that still have their magnet remaining will have earned that months homework brag tag!

3 - 2 - 1 Teacher Bio

 I am so excited to link up and tell you a little more about me! 

1. I love setting up and organizing my classroom. When I moved into my current room last year it was just like every other room I have ever moved into... completely empty! It takes many hours and a lot of love to get a classroom ready. At the end of this school year I moved some furniture around and took down this years theme. I can't wait to put up my new theme and set my room back up. Here is what my classroom currently looks like... 

2. This year I was so blessed to get 5 iPads donated to my classroom through donors choose. At the end of the year my school got technology money from the district, and they bought the second grade teachers 13 mini iPads and a teacher iPad. Wow! Our current iPad count is at 19 iPads! I am so close to being a 1:1 classroom! I love finding apps that engage students and get them so excited they don't even realize they are learning. Here is one of my favorite math apps called Number Run.

3. What girl doesn't love Pinterest!

1. I will have an Amazon Prime membership For-ev-er. Seriously! Phoenix just got next day delivery and it is amazing! My purchase this week was not a book but rather the erasable Frixion markers I have read teachers raving about. Oh my gosh these markers are awesome! Mr. Fancy totally didn't believe they would erase (because they write like a real marker) but YES they do erase, and they write beautifully! Seriously you have to own these markers 


2. I could watch Cutthroat Kitchen and Chopped all day long... oh wait I already do... Oh summertime how I love you!

Okay Stop laughing! I just want to see one from far away, nothing close up or scary. I may just settle for this t-shirt!
