DIY Glitter Pins & Chalk & Chevron Classroom Management Pack

Okay so I love glitter!  I am always trying to find different ways to incorporate it into the classroom.  I think I have come up with a fabulous idea too!!  I hang up my student's work in a string that goes across the room.  I use clothespins to hold it up.  But they are womp womp BORING.  I though itd be easy to make my own and it is!!  Here is what you need!

*mini clothespins
*sponge brush
*paper to use for scrap

You can grab all these inexpensive materials at Michaels!  What I love about Michaels is that they always have a coupon and they have teacher discounts as well!  I love seeing my total and then giving a coupon along with my teachers discount.  It goes down A LOT!

*Now first take the scrap paper and dump some glue, then some glitter on separate piles like so

*take the sponge and dab it with some glue
*then dump the clothespin (glue side down) into the glue

*continue until you are finished with all the clothepins.  
*let it dry for at least half hour

Look how cute they turned out to be!

Here's a close up

You can even individialize it.  I created cute numbers from1-20 and plan on gluing it at the tip of the pin to individualize it.  This way my students know where they are going for centers or what job they have etc.  You will see more pics in a sec.

I am so excited to use this.  

In fact I use these glitter pins in my newest and amazing Classroom Management Bundle !  

It's here!!!!  It's finally here.  I am so happy to actually be sharing this with you.  It took me forever because every  time I thought I was done, I kept thinking of more things to add!

This is just a glimpse of what's included!  

Look what else I was able to create with my new apps on my phone!

I uploaded an app called Your Moments which let me create all of these neat pictures.  Here are some more!! 
If you notice in the pic below what I did with my glitter clothespins!  I printed out numbers from 1-30.  I plan on giving me students numbers at the beginning of the year.  These numbers will be with them for the rest of the school year.  So when I change jobs, centers, behavior etc., I will clip it with their numbers.  All they have to do is follow their numbers and they are all set! 
It doesn't hurt that its too darn cute to look at either.

and one more!! =)  

Excuse my camera.  I was shooting in a poor light area. 

Okay let me explain my hand sanitizer before you think I made a mistake.  I don't like germs, AT ALL.  Every year when we start school, I am refreshed, nice and clean with a mani and pedi in hand. My immune system..well it's at it's best. However my students come back to school and with their sneezing and coughing like little boys and girls do, tests my immune system and I usually get sick by the first month of school.  Has been happening every year. I try my best to avoid it but ehh I can't.  My hand sanitizer student tries their best from getting others sick!  He/She walks around before and after lunch and snack and gives everyone a shot of the sanitizer or shall I say "hanitizer" according to my students.  It's a great way to keep the germies away!
