I am incredibly excited by this new addition to recognizing positive behavior in my classroom - Student Shout Outs. Each letter of 'SHOUT' stands for a positive attribute: S - sagacity, H - helpfulness, O - optimism, U - understanding, and T - tenacity. I plan on recognizing five different students that exemplify one attribute of the acronym every other month.
Managing Student Papers
I've used plastic paper bins on my counter since I began teaching, but one of my teaching goals this year is to downsize and declutter. I've found that extra copies and student papers still become disheveled on the counter, so off they counter and on the wall they go! Some of the maintenance staff helped hang these up from me - what a space saver!
My 'window' collage - a sneak peek of my room. Not quite what I want it to look like yet, but it's almost there. And, I'm not sure if I want it in my room or just outside my door in the hallway. However, I love reminiscing when looking at these photos!
