It's time for February Farley fun!
I am slacking in a major way with posting. Any suggestions for sticking to a regular blogging schedule?
My pet peeves...
Students losing books from our classroom library. Or not checking them out correctly. And not reading them. I want kids to read, read, read! Difficult to do when students mistreat our books.
Nosy posies is a phrase I *think* I coined this year : ) My students are very social and love to stir the proverbial pot. Pretty insensitive and hurtful, not just to the other students, but to me too! Underpaid and Overblessed posted a great lesson about fighting hate with love today. I love her ideas about using tootsie roll pops and the crumpled paper. I read Owen and Mzee: Language of Friendship yesterday with my class.
We discussed a variety of issues like cliques, gossip, tolerance, being a positive leader, good stuff. LOVE this poster I bought from Really Good Stuff.com. It proudly hangs on the inside of my door. Hoping we can work as a team and make our classroom a better place for all to learn.
