Made It Monday!

Time for another Made It Monday link up with Fourth Grade Frolics! Now that it's almost August and summer is slowly dwindling down I feel like I could have a "Made It" every day of the week. I have so much on my to-do list that I want to make before the new school year arrives!

This week I made these little iPods. I actually made them at 3 in the morning on Saturday night because I just could not sleep. I was wide awake like it was 3 in the afternoon. After laying down and trying to sleep for a while, I just decided to get up and do something, and maybe that would make me tired.

The result... I made these iPods! It's bright colored cardstock and I used some various bowls and soup cans to make circles for the dials. Then copied the designs off my iPod.

 I am going to put them by my library. Each week I am going to choose a few students who have finished books, take their picture with that book, and they will write a book recommendation it. I am going to put the picture in that box above the dial, it's hard to see drawn in pencil. I am going to call it the iRead Book Corner, so the kids can see what their classmates think are good books to read! I'm hoping that this will make them actually work on reading and finishing the whole book in order to be chosen and write something!

Now what to do next on my list of stuff to make?!? Have a great week everyone!
