Job Chart Part 2

     Four school days down and boy, do I need this 3 day weekend! Although we always start the week before Labor Day, we typically only have a 2 or 3 day week, followed by a 4 day week after Labor Day. It's a great way to ease into the routine and let the kids build some stamina gradually. This year however, the powers that be gave us a 4 day week to start with and what a difference a day makes!  By Friday we were all a little shot - having three days to recover is awesome!
     I'm overwhelmed and tickled by the response to my last post about how to make your own pocket chart. As you may know, my newest undertaking is creating my own clipart to meet my way too nit-picky needs. I was stoked about how the clipart for my job chart came out, but to get so many emails about it completely caught me by surprise! Thanks to everyone who took the time to comment or email me, you totally made my day!  The most common question I received was if the clipart is for sale. I would love to offer the set, but since I'm just starting out, I don't really know how to do things like make the background transparent or make the graphics at a high resolution so you can enlarge them to any size. I've really just been playing around with it for my own projects, so I haven't looked into any of that yet - that's my next goal.
     In the meantime, I've posted my DIY Instant Job Chart in my TPT store. Included are the printable pockets for 33 different jobs, as well as simple job cards in case you just want to use them in your own pocket chart. I've also included wordless versions of both formats in case you want to write in different job titles. Take a look at what's included:

This is what my chart looks like in my classroom. I hung it with a ribbon and I just love it!  The kids are excited to pick their first jobs this week.

     Well, I'm off to bed. I have big plans tomorrow for a few burgers and beers in the sunshine. Just the thing to recharge me and get me ready for week 2 with the new gang. I hope you're planning a little R&R to celebrate Labor Day as well.
Have a great day off!
