So here are my Monday Made Its that I have linked back up with 4th Grade Frolics!
One of my personal goals this summer was to cook a new meal each week. I am happy to report, I did just that on Saturday night and it was delicious!! I bought a pork tenderloin because it was on sale. Let's face it, meat is expensive so I buy what is on sale for the week and make do. I googled a crock pot meal because seriously that is way easier then slaving over the stove all day. I found a fun cooking blog with a delicious recipe. I made a Balsamic Pork Tenderloin with roasted potatoes and a salad. This meal was so good it made it on the list. You know the list that says this was good enough that I would eat it again! Sadly, I did not take a picture but I am just not a food photographer so this picture will do it better justice! This picture is from Add a Pinch and you can grab the recipe while you are there!

According to my calender my classroom library should be organized, labeled and ready for the first day of school. HAHA, yeah that has so not happened. I have sorted through all of my little readers and have those ready to go but I have not even attempted my thematic books for my classroom library.
I am organizing my library in 4 parts this year. I will have a thematic books, topic books, 100 Book Challenge and have a leveled area (by number). This will be an area for my students to find books that are close to their level. It will hold those little tiny readers that are hard to place in a thematic area. My hope is that it will give my students a small selection of book baskets to choose a "just right" book. They will be able to get 3-5 leveled books, 3-5 100 BC books and 3-5 thematic books to place in their book baskets. l love for them to have TONS of books in their book baskets for "read to self time." So these number labels are for my leveled library area. I am in LOVE with the black glittery ribbon I am using to attach these labels! For all of my fabulous followers you can grab this set here for FREE..available in black & white backgrounds!
Make sure you hope over and check out all the other awesome Monday Made It Projects!
