Student Cards and Desk Tips

-
It's Monday which means it's time for Monday Made It!

Valentine's Day always has a way of sneaking up on me so I decided to get ahead of the game and I made some quick Valentine's Day cards for my kids.
I ran out of birthday cards so I made some too.  I like to keep them as gender neutral but this pink owl was just too cute so it's all girl.  I love stashing a bunch in my desk and having them ready to go.  I feel so bad when I don't have a card for a birthday.
Here are some close ups.  Loving the way they turned out!
I finally got a chance to print out these Dr. Jean's Cheers I found over the summer!  I could not believe they were free!!  My kids are LOVING them.  I laminated every page and put them on a ring.  They hang above my whiteboard and whenever we need a cheer, they are right there for us to use. 

 Not sure if this counts as a made it, but I "made" my classroom quiet with a genius tip from Mrs. Terhune.  She ties her desks together with zip ties and boy did it work to quiet things down in my classroom!  I thought I was going to go crazy with the noise my desks made.  (Most of my room is tiled.)
Thise are the zip ties that I used.  I got them from Lowe's. 
Ok, that is all for now.  Make sure to link up with Tara for Monday Made It!
