Monday Made It!

Has anyone seen the newish show on TLC called Craft Wars? OH MY GOSH. So much fun! I want their Michael's supply closet to be in my house! It is the crafter's DREAM!!!{insert the hallelujah chorus here}
I would LOVE to be on that show! 
I am brainstorming a linky/contest that I might give a try where we have our own Craft War! I would tell you the "must have materials" and what you will be making, and you would have the month to make your craft and link up! Does that sound interesting to you? Then we could vote on the top crafts, and the winner gets a craft gift card to Michaels or something! Anyways, that's what is goin on in my head right now!
I'm getting back into the swing of things, including blogging! That means it's time for another

This week's made its are pretty exciting!
#1: Jet-Lagged Words!
I have seen SO-O-O many different ways to display synonyms in the classroom so those overused words are gone from the kiddies' vocabulary! Here are my main PINspirations!

So here's my newest TPT product, just in time for the sale!
I wanted to do a travel-theme, and thought this would be great! It turned out so cute! I've included over 20 overused words with 7 synonyms each. The synonyms are color-coded as you can see. I have also left blanks for you to fill in with your kids! Print these out and use them on a bulletin board, for creative writing, or minilessons! They're in my store right now, and you can get 25% off through today!

#2: Keep Calm Poster!
I {LOVE} this tutorial on how to make super awesome posters!
Since Elsie over at A Beautiful Mess made SUCH a great tutorial, I'm just going to let you go to her blog to find out how to make your own! Here's my finished product!!
I'm thinking about making more of these and putting them in my etsy store! 
*EDIT: would you like this in your classroom? or do you have to get a gift for a special teacher or colleague? you can purchase it in my Etsy store!! Click on the picture above to go to the listing!*
