3 days down, 1 to go for our state testing!!!!
What a week:)
I wanted to share a little idea I did in our classroom.
The other day I blogged about my Shine On! motivational notes.
The kids have been loving getting these, BUT
I wanted them to take part in the "spreading some positive, pre-test love" too!
We have started our Book Recommendation Tree again this year!
(Thanks Molly, Lessons with Laughter, check out her adorable tree!!!)
BUT, for the big test, my room has to be completely dullsville!!!!
So, had to take all the tags off the tree......
it looked so naked, and sad, and ugh.....
then the Post It Positivity Tree was born:)
I gave each of the kiddos a little post it and had them write an encouraging note and then we taped them to the tree. The next morning, as they came in, each student picked a post it to encourage them for testing:)
They absolutely LOVED this. I have even noticed that a few take that little note out each morning and read it again:) Love that:)
I also had to share this note of love I got from one of my kiddos:)
Teachers like to get positive notes too!!!
Happy hump day everyone!!!
