QUICK and EASY Teacher Costume!

Hi friends,

Here is a quick and easy costume you might like for Halloween or a Book Parade! I dressed up as Miss Frizzle character from the books with the same name! It turned out so cute and my students loved it! Also, the librarian dressed up as Miss Frizzle, too!

Here's are some pictures:


For the dress, I just bought a dress from Ross Department Store. Then I bought space shapes that were iron-on from Michaels Craft Store. I purchased the wig (an I Love Lucy Wig from Party City) and a lizard from the toy store.

I'd love to hear ideas that you have for fun costumes (especially ones that go along with books!)

Simple Lesson to Help Students Rethink a Bad Day

We've all had those days... You know the ones! The ones where one thing goes wrong first thing in the morning and we feel that our whole day is ruined. This is a simple lesson I've used to help students see past one bad thing and help them to refocus and  see it doesn't have to ruin their whole day.

First I gather the students to our meeting area. Then I show them a white poster and ask them what they see. They say a blank poster. I tell them that the blank poster  represents a new day full of possibilities.




Then I take a marker and make a dot in the middle of the poster. They usually moan and tell me that the poster is ruined. I tell them that dot represents when something goes wrong in our day. They share things that go wrong...forgetting lunch, someone hurts their feelings, forgetting homework, etc. I write their ideas on another poster and we brainstorm ways to handle those situations.




Then I tell them we all have things that go wrong in our day sometimes but instead of focusing on the "dot" we should focus on the whole rest of the poster that is still full of possibilities (just like our day)!


I hope this idea is helpful to you! I'd love to hear your ideas on how to help students redirect a bad moment in a day!

3 Easy and Fun Ideas to Get Kids Excited about Multiplication Facts!

Here are three of my favorite ideas to use to get kids excited to learn the multiplication facts!

1. Make a multiplication craft! Kids love to have a little art project in math! Use Hawaiian Leis (found at party or craft stores), pipe cleaners and the number strip cards (from my resource) to create this fun visual for kids! Directions and details in resource. Students love wearing these home and  using it to practice their facts! Click on picture for link to resource!


2. Use jokes to get kids excited about math! My students LOVE to practice facts if they end result is solving a joke! Here is the link to the Multiplication Mega Bundle (jokes for the year...keep them smiling and multiplying all year long!) Click on picture for link!


3. Use games like Multiplication Bump! Just add dice and game boards and you're ready to go!Click on the picture for link to resource! 



I hope your students enjoy these ideas as much as mine do! Happy Multiplying!

#1 Best Lesson on Measurement (and lots of fun, too)!

Use literature to relate to math! Here is an example lesson to tie reading to measurement using the book, Measuring Penny by Loreen Leedy.


1. Read the book, Measuring Penny, by Loreen Leedy to the class and discuss.

2.  Explain to the children that you are going to assign the same measurement homework assignment as the teacher in the story.

3. I’ve attached lots of examples of parts of student’s work that my classes did for this homework assignment. You are welcome to display them for your students as examples.

4. If your students have computer access and parents willing to help them, then it is fun to have them create power points for the assignment. Then they could send you the Google link or Dropbox link to the power point so you could  to show it to the class. However, it is ok to have them make a paper poster instead if technology is an issue.

5. Tell them they can measure anything. Some children get upset if they think they have to measure a pet, like in the story, and they don’t have a pet. I’ve had students measure their siblings, a stuffed animal, hockey stick, really no limit!

6. This is such a fun way to introduce or reinforce measurement using a real life experience and getting parents involved!

Here are some examples from my students! Have fun! I'd love to hear how this lesson worked with your class in the comments below!

"Smile File" - #1 File EVERY Teacher Needs 

What is a "Smile File"? 
Several years ago a teacher friend shared with me the idea of a "Smile File". She said to get a folder, write "Smile File" on it and keep all of those special notes from students, parents, teachers and administrators in it. I did and it has really been one of the best things I've ever done in my career! 

Benefits of a "Smile File":
1. An easy way to keep up with all of those special notes!
2. Source of encouragement when days get tough teaching ( or it's rainy day recess for the third day in a row!)
3. If you're looking for a new job or nominated for an award then use some of the kind words from this folder.
4. Reflect mid-year or end of the year, or as the years go by on individual people who brought sunshine into your life!

What do you need to create a "Smile File"?
1. A file folder
2. A cute cover
3. I have a FREE set of covers to choose from in my TPT store. They are editable so you can add your name, school, year, grade, etc.  You might want to make a new on for each school year! Just click on the picture:





Here are some examples of the kinds of items I've kept in my "Smile File":








I hope you take time today to create your own "Smile File"! I think you will be so happy that you did!

Have a blessed day!
