Monday Made It: Pencil Containers and Calendar Numbers

Happy Monday friends!  Today I'm linking up with Fabulous Tara at Fourth Grade Frolics to show what I made this week.

 It was my last week of school, so what I created wasn't elaborate or all that original.  But it was a NEED in my room.  Our school colors are white, red and black.  Next year with my love of all things converse, I'm going with those classroom colors.  I made numbers for the large chalkboard calendar that sits in the front of my room.

To go with it, I made new pencil holders using the red/white/black theme.   I took two small Folger's coffee containers, and added mustache duct tape to the outside.
Then I added my SHARP and DULL Pencil labels, and covered that with clear package tape.

 I'm happy to have gotten these completed before school ended, because I could leave them at school and not store them at home over the summer.
Did you get a chance to make something over the week?  Link up with Tara and share what you've made.  If you need the labels, or you are going with a red/white/black theme, you can go {HERE} and download.


  1. Great idea to reuse the Foldger's coffee containers--they turned out great! Really like your numbers with the tennis shoes, too. Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. I save all of my Folger's containers too! They are so useful in the classroom. My room is also a red, black and white theme. Those are my husband's basketball team's colors! My kiddos learn pretty quick what my favorite colors and favorite sport are! Thanks for the labels download!
