Monday Made It

I saw this on Pinterest and knew that I had to replicate it!  It's from Erica Bohrer's First Grade.

Even though I teach 6th grade, my kiddos still get down right giddy on their birthdays and love it when others acknowledge their birthdays. Who doesn't?? We have a huge bulletin board outside in the hallway. My team and I realized that if we put this out there, not only will this be a reminder of whose birthday it is, but it will also be a year round bulletin board! Woohoo!

I have also seen this idea to put letters on decorative party plates as letters and thought that it would be perfect here.

Got out my handy dandy Silhouette machine and went to work!

After they were cut out, I just took a basic glue stick and glued on the letters to the plates. I had two different patterns and was going to alternate the pattern, but I thought the multi-colored one would be too busy so I just stuck with the yellow.

I made a PDF for ya'll because I love ya. These are for you to use for the kiddos to hold up when their pictures are getting taken.  Click the picture below for the download.

I will take a picture in August when the bulletin board is all set up and ready to go. I haven't decided what to do with the new kids that come in throughout the year. Any ideas?

Don't forget to link up with Tara at 4th Grad Frolics with her weekly Monday Made It!
