Monday Made It Freebie!

I am linking up with Fourth Grade Frolics for Monday Made It.  This year I am going with a bird theme in my room.  It just kind of happened.  
I already had a great picture I bought last year at my school's art auction.  
Then I happened upon these, and that's all she wrote!  I have a small space above some of my cabinets in my room.  Over the years I have tried to put decorative items on the soffit, but to no avail.  It was just too small of a distance from cabinet to ceiling and nothing looked right, until now.  Yay!  

I found these at Kirklands and they were the perfect size.  I then saw these bird houses at Hobby Lobby.  Again, just the right size.  Now I was happy.  :)  I bought the houses and some paint and this is what happened:

 I am going to snip the string off the small houses, but they came in handy as I was painting them.  I am heading up to my room to add them to my decor.  Once my room is put together I will snap some photos and post them.  Of course I am thinking of bird things to do with my little sweeties once school starts.  I saw this on Pinterest and immediately knew I would be doing something like this.
I then found some free bird clipart on TpT and made this.
It is part of my upcoming bird pack I am working on.  If you would like a copy click HERE.
I also made a PowerPoint presentation for one of my classes last week.  It goes with the book 'The Day the Crayons Quit'.  I plan on using it on my interactive whiteboard to check comprehension after I read the story to my little learners.  They will be able to choose an answer, touch it, and the correct answer will stay on the screen.  I would love any feedback if you choose to view it and/or use it with your class.

Thanks for reading!  Have a great day.  :)

    I also like your PowerPoint. I've never read that book, but it would be a good way to do comprehension.
