Here are some snapshots of my week. I apologize ... I really don't have any fabulous photography tips this week except for ... start snapping. Did you know you can embed your instagram videos and pictures into your blog? It's super easy and very fast. Just click on the photo or video in instagram and you will see three little dots in the right hand corner. Once you click on the dots embed is an option. I've been so busy lately with blogging, common core training, and of course watching these little pumpkins that I haven't had time to pull out my DSLR camera. My cell phone gets used on a daily basis. I'll make up for my lack of photos next week.

Do you find the time to teach kindness with all the demands of testing? When I first started teaching,
I didn't know where to begin. Luckily, I found some wonderful books that changed my classroom. I started teaching lessons on kindness but more importantly I taught kindness by example.
I started passing out little happy notes that shared positive quotes and motivational messages. I would pass out happy notes to students who were having a rough day or just because! Motivating students with these happy notes were simple and effective. The happy notes inspired my students to be kind and spread a smile. This year students will a pass out happy notes around school. Their job will be to make the world a happier place by spreading smiles and happy notes. They will learn to pay it forward because keeping the notes will NOT help the smiles grow. How fun would it be to mail seeds of happiness and happy notes to distant family members and ask them to mail their favorite positive quotes back or better yet another classroom? Think ... Flat Stanley Pays It Forward.
This set includes 28 happy note designs. I recommend printing on cardstock for durability. You could even laminate.

This packet was created as an ongoing project designed for students to complete themselves or with the help of a teacher or classroom volunteer. It is a wonderful way to provide students with a yearbook or portfolio of their work . While many of the activities are geared towards K-3 the activities can be modified for just about any child or grade level. Basically each month students will document their journey as a learner. I like to have a volunteer call back three students at a time. If I was short with time I would do it whole group. The main goal of this project is creativity and documenting their learning memories.Students may write notes, draw pictures, add color, add stickers, etc. You may also add real photographs in the space provided. I like to document their journey with photographs matted on scrapbook paper.
Students will answer fill in the blank and open-ended questions on topics such as: All About Me, The First Day, A Favorites page, Best field trip, Favorite Special, Best Memory, Lunch, Recess, Friends, When I grow up, Holidays, Events such as 100th day, MLK. Jr, Seasons, and more! You may use parts of this packet or the entire packet.
