Monday Made It!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics for her Monday Made It! I have 2 things I want to share this week!  1 is for my house and the other is for my classroom!  

Number 1
4th of July Wreath
I have been wanting a new wreath for 4th of July but didn't know exactly what I wanted!  I decided to take a trip to Hobby Lobby Thursday to see what I could find.  I found really cute chevron burlap, American flags, an American flag bow, red, white, and blue beads, and a plain wreath made out of twigs.  I took all the materials home and started playing around with all the possibilities.  I finally figured out what I wanted to do and started hot gluing away! This is what the final product looks like! 

Number 2
Kindergarten Common Core High Frequency Words Activities
I have already started thinking about next year and how I am going to get my students to learn all 126 common core sight words.  I have made new word wall cards but knew I was in need of some new activities.  I have decided to make 4 different units that will each have different activities for the sight words.  Because the words are broken down into four 9 week units I have decided to make 4 units that will each cover the specific words for each of the 9 weeks.  I am almost done with the first unit which includes the first 9 weeks words.  Hopefully I will have all 4 units completed by the end of this week and added to my TPT store!
Here is a sneak peak!!!

Can't wait to see what everyone else is up to this week!  I always get the best ideas for my classroom and house while looking at everyone's Monday Made It's!!
Don't forget to head on over to 4th Grade Frolics to link up and see what everyone else is up to!
