Posting twice in one day, eek! I know, I shouldn't, but I wanted to participate in two link up that happen today. Both are being hosted by Texas teachers, so I gotta do it, right?
1st is the educational beliefs blog hop with Whitney from With Love from Texas. Man, that was awesome to sit and write down. And, wonderful to read other bloggers beliefs as well. Be sure to check that blog hop out. It will inspire you.
And now for another fun link up.
The Little Ladybug Shop and Planet Happy Smiles are hosting this fun link up party to share organization tips, ideas and freebies as well.
Since school is about to start, lets talk management. The best advice I can give is to have a plan BEFORE school starts. I think it should focus on positive behaviors. Reward positive behaviors and the negative behaviors will happen less. And I truly believe that it doesn't have to cost you money to reward kids!
I made these for my 6th graders as rewards for positive behavior and it motivated my students to act correctly. I shouldn't have been, but I was shocked when they really wanted the rewards.
I plan on using them in elementary this year! There are 20 different options in color or a printer friendly option. I didn't use all of them in 6th grade and I know I will not use all of them in 5th, but have lots of options.
