Monday Linky Madness!

Happy Monday, everyone!  Today I am linking up with three linky parties thanks to the wonderful Melissa from Mrs. Sprigg's Kindergarten.  First up is Monday Meet Up, brought to us by

This week is all about what we are thankful for.  I could go on and on, but I kept it short and sweet for your reading pleasure (and so it would fit in the cute template)!
Next up is… Monday Made It and Merry Monday brought to you by My Pinterventures and

Fourth Grade Frolics

Here are my mystery walker and sharp pencil/not sharp pencil bins.  I made these out of those clear containers that doctors use to hold cotton balls, strep tests, etc.  I bought them as centerpieces for my brother's medical school graduation, and didn't know what I was going to do with them after.  Well, VOILA!  I covered each bin with colored card stock (I used mod podge because I was afraid that hot glue would melt the plastic).  Then, I used my trusty Cricut to cut out the cute designs and letters.  Finally, I finished them off with some cute ribbon from Michael's!


If you are interested in finding out how I use the Mystery Walker in my classroom, feel free to comment below and I will explain it for you!

Have a marvelous Monday!

    1. Hi Sarah and I Love to Learn! In my Mystery Walker bin, I have one popsicle stick with each student's name on it. Before we line up to go into the hallway, I pick a stick out of the bin- this person is my Mystery Walker. I keep my Mystery Walker a secret because it's supposed to be a mystery! I keep an extra eye on this person as we line up and are in the hallway (also on our way back from wherever we were). If my Mystery Walker does an excellent job and doesn't need any reminders, I reveal who it is when we get back to the classroom, and he or she gets to choose a class coupon (ex. sit in the teacher's chair, read to self under a table, have snack at the teacher's desk, etc.) You could also use small prizes like erasers. If my Mystery Walker does not do a stellar job in the hallway, I do not reveal who it was. I just say that my Mystery Walker needs to work a little harder next time. I make sure not to say the person's name, because I don't want to embarrass anyone, just make them all work a little harder!

      Hope that helps! :)
