Saturday I decided to dust off my sewing machine and create a little gift. I love to sew and love that when I am done I have something that I created with my own hands.
I am still new at sewing, and am a self-taught sewer. Of course, I had some training in 7th grade, but I am not sure that really made the difference since I can't remember anything from that class except arguing with a boy about the difference between a spatula and a flipper. Ah, the joys of puberty!

|Reusable snack bags lined with a BPA-free liner, they close with Velcro.|
I made two in coordinating fabric.
I also tried out some more Power Point projects with fonts and making foldables, creating some more activities for my TPT store, just in time for the big Back to School Sale.
I am currently teaching animal classification and decided to get my packet for bacteria, protists, and fungi ready to go. I made some graphic organizers, a foldable and a quiz. Since learning how to really use PowerPoint, duplicating slides I included answer keys and a teacher version of the graphic organizers too.
I decided to try to make handwriting sheets to go along with my vocabulary lessons. After shopping during the Back to School sale I made some cursive handwriting sheets to go along with my wordly wise units. Check it out if you teach upper elementary, this packet is a freebie. I will be adding more sheets and will add that to the store, but that will be further down the road!
And last but not least, I finally created a calendar for August. The month is almost over, but hey it isn't too late and was a perfect excuse to use some of the great items I purchased at the sale!
Hope you had a wonderful Tuesday!
