Treats for My Sweets...

Well, it's another Monday and I'm linking up with Tara for her Monday Made It Linky. 

She always has so many fabulous teachers sharing fun ideas.  My first inspiration came from Run!Mrs. Nelson's Got the Camera.  She posted a list of rewards and incentives she uses in the classroom and I LOVED her idea for a treat tree.  I haven't decided yet if I would like to use it for 100's on spelling tests or meeting an AR goal.  I should probably work that out soon.
 "Sweet Treats for you and me..."
Earlier this week I linked up with Teaching in Room 6  to share my behavior chart.  I finally finished putting mine together and I found the cutest little clothespins.

You can get my Behavior that Makes Cents at my TPT store if you would like to use it.  I cannot even imagine charging for any of the things that I make right now.  I am truly a newb at this, so until I feel like I have something worth selling all my things are free. ;) 

Finally, my last little craft for the week.  I cannot remember where in the world I saw this idea but........I LOVED it and have been keeping detergent scoops ever since. 
We've saved milk tops and picked out some princess flowers to plant.  I thought these would be fun for the kids at school to make when we learn about plants.  Okay, first we hot glued (only a crafter's kid can get away with this) :/  the lids to each side of the scooper.
Then, we filled the scooper up with potting soil and planted our Cosmos.  Lil' Sass decided that we needed a sign so everyone would know what we are growing.  The finished product looks like a sweet little wheel barrow.  
Good night, bloggy friends!
