Monday Made It

Good morning, friends! First, I hope you are enjoying my fabulous guest bloggers! So far we've had Erin from The Short and Sassy Teacher and Aris from Sailing Into Second. I'll have more guest bloggers this week so stay tuned!

Now, on to Monday Made It with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics!  
I've had this "If, Then Reading Interventions Menu" printed off for about a year. This was compiled by Jen Jones and you can find it here for free. I decided I wanted a better way to keep it together. I've had it in a binder, in a folder, etc. A few weeks ago I decided to bind my standards (see that HERE). I loved how it turned out so I decided to do the same with my Interventions Menu! 

My second project can be seen all over Pinterest, but I am not sure who the original idea came from. A friend of mine did this project with her children, which is where I got the idea! My 4 year old and I made an American flag shirt for him to wear on the 4th of July!

Materials: White t-shirt, painters tape, paintbrushes (we used foam), and red & blue fabric paint.

First, I taped off sections of the shirt. I ended up adding one more strip of tape at the top.
Then, we started painting! First, we painted E's hand blue and did his handprint where the stars would be. Then, he painted in between the painters tape. 
Tada! We had a cute, personalized shirt to wear for the 4th of July and a fabulous keepsake! 
Happy Monday, friends!


  1. i love the tshirt, it makes me a little sad that my daughter would probably think she was too old (11) to make one. I saw another one where they had put some star stickers on the shirt before they put the hand print on. Then they peeled the stickers off and the flag also had stars.
