Monday Made-It

I'm excited to post on Monday Made-It for the very first time!  Now that summer is drawing to an end (can you believe it's almost August?), I'm starting to work more on my classroom projects.  Last week, I found this cute rocking chair at Goodwill.
I washed it off, sanded it, and then painted it blue to match the colors in my classroom.  I still need to spray it with some sealant, and possibly touch up a few spots, but it's mostly done!
As usual, Harper "casually" walks by so she can be part of the picture.
The color is a little brighter in person, but I'm really excited with how it turned out and what a cheap project it was.  The chair was seven dollars and the paint cost about five, so 12 dollars total for a super cute chair!  I wish I could find some more for that price! 

Also, one of my goals this summer was to look back at my older TpT products and see if I needed to edit them.  One of the very first things I made was my Word Family Poster Set.  I decided they were a little boring, so I spiced them up a bit.

My new and improved Word Family Posters for the 37 Most Common Rimes..Now with Bright Chevron Background!
Click the picture to go to TpT.  If you previously purchased my word family posters, you can download these for free!

I really liked how they turned out, so I decided to add two other options for the posters as well.  Pastel Chevron:

And Polka Dots:
Other than the backgrounds, the poster sets are all the same.  (They contain the same word families and the same picture and anchor word for each family.)

I'd love to give a few of these away.  Leave me a comment with your email and which set you'd like and I'll choose 3 winners later this week.  Happy Monday!


  1. Cute chair! Don't you just love a great deal! I have 2 stools in need of a makeover that were free...LOVE free stuff! Your posters look really good...the bright polka dots is my favorite! Teaching with Giggles

  2. Adorable posters!!! I love the size and the graphics, great visual for my differentiated learners. I would love to have the Pastel Chevron to match my chevron theme this year.

  3. I painted a cute picnic table for my classroom last year, but was too lazy to add sealant. Bad idea! I'll be RE-painting it this summer!! :(
