Monday Made It

                                    
I wish I was able to get this post up earlier today, but this is the best I could do. I have so many projects started for Monday Made It, but this is the one that I actually completed. I saw this from Dana at Fun In 1st Grade and thought it was super cute, so I made one for my 2nd grade class.
I bought a plain, wooden 11x14 frame from Michael's and painted it turquoise (my school colors) and then put a clear coat of acrylic on top of it to keep everything in place. I then hot glued these cute, colorful letters around the frame. I am going to take each student's picture on the first day to send home with them. Then I want to make a collage of each of their pictures and put it in the frame to have up in the classroom during the year. I then want to take their picture on the last week of school to compare their pictures and show how much they have grown and matured over the year. I think it will be a great way to show the full circle of the school year. Hopefully this week I will be able to complete some of my other projects to have ready for NEXT Monday.

  2. I have seen this idea and been tempted to make it. What size frame did you use? I love the idea of using the frame during the school year to hold a collage of all the student photos. Hmm...I think I just added another idea to my to-do list.
