My cousin is having a little girl and there were some fantastic ideas that I had to share with you!
Using paper lanterns is a cheap and very cute way to decorate for a shower!
Instead of playing games at the shower, we decided to decorate onesies and bibs. This ended up being one of the most fun things that I have done in a long time! There were several iron-ons to choose from, onesies ranging in sizes, and permanent fabric markers to use.
Here is the onesie that I decorated! Of course, it's an owl!
Here is the bib I decorated using an iron-on "E" and the fabric markers.
My cousin decorated this bib with a necklace look.
We signed all of our bibs and onesies with our names so that she knew who decorated what and to be able to send us pictures of the new baby in the clothes.
This onesie was signed by us all!
I thought this one was humorous! (And true!)
We had to get chevron in there! Plus, this is a great quote for a baby!
To avoid curious eyes and ensure students' privacy during assessments, I made these dividers out of two file folders and a word doc. I laminated them to keep them durable. Students love using these because they claim their own space and they say that it helps them concentrate. It's also nice when they are taking a test and I can just glance to see who is still working if their divider is still up. I have heard them called both student dividers and student offices.
I made this "Do Not Disturb" sign on Word and glued it on.
I have seen some dividers that have all sorts of information for the students to reference, however, I like to use these for assessments so I thought the smiley face would work best. I just got it from clip art and printed them off. It's so cute because sometimes I catch them smiling back at it!
Keeping track of absent student's work throughout the day can get time consuming! I found these absent student folders on TPT and love them!! Basically, it is just a laminated folder that all of the papers that the student would have gotten throughout the day goes in. Instead of the student coming back to their desk covered in papers, they all stay contained until they complete the work. Once the work is complete, the students turn it in in the folder. I made about 8 just in case a few disappear. Here is the link for the absent folders. If you are not into the owls, there are several others to choose from!
I don't try to cut the pockets, I just lay the work inside.
Here is another design I used before I found the owls:
