First off, I saw a pin on the infamous Pinterest on how to make your own scratch-offs. I thought that would be such a fun way to reward the kiddos so I made some of my own. They have things like eat lunch outside, no shoes for a day, sit in the rolling chair for a day, etc. Most things are FREE and that makes it even better for me. So, I created mine and laminated them in the business card sized pouches. That way, after the kids reveal the prize, I only need to repaint the square and use it again and again and again...You get the idea. Here's a couple of pictures of the tickets.

I also worked on making some numbers for my calendar. I found this red polka-dotted calendar at School Aids but they didn't have any sports themed numbers so I had to fix that. How do you think they turned out? I still need to put Velcro on the backs but the Velcro is in my classroom and I can't get in yet.
I took Tara's advise and worked on some FUNdametal things but they aren't quite ready to share. Guess I'll have to share next week.
