Children learn best when they like their teacher...promote and nurture their bond! #ADHD #Twice Exceptional #2E #GLD #Gifted Learning Disabilities #Dual Exceptionalities
Children learn best when they like their teacher... Wish I saw more teachers that liked their job & were able to show their students how much they really care
This is so true. It also reminds me of two of my favorite quotes: 1. "Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care." ~Theodore Roosevelt, and 2. "If you have a child's heart, you have his head." ~Flip Flippen, creator of the Capturing Kids' Hearts program

20 minutes of reading a night: Good visual for parents, teachers, and the kids!
Great resources for Language Arts
Good parent visual for Back to School Night -- and for the kids!
yet sadly, many of students who read more than 20 minutes per day will not report that reading in their reading log because the children of those parents with a functional literacy level of the T.V. Guide will bully them for it. quit teaching your kids to bully intelligent people, be literate by choice & by example.

Each student brings in a framed family photo... Classroom Community!
Family photos that kids bring in to school. One of the 1st grade classes @ Suwannee had the frames on the kids' desks. I love it! We have our family photos on our work desks, why not the students' desks?
This website has some unique classroom ideas including this one where students bring in a family/friend framed photo at the beginning of the year so they have a little piece of home with them while they are at school. This is especially great for younger students who might be homesick for their first year of school.
Student Family Photos- have them bring in a framed photo at the beginning of the year and display them in your classroom . What a sweet way to personalize your room!
Ask each child to bring in a small framed family photo. I have done this before, and it's very meaningful for kids to share their family pictures with the class.

This teachers theme was "Carried away with excitement for the new school year." They wrote their hopes and dreams in balloons and attached a picture of them soaring with them. Take pic of student with digi cam
Carried Away--This teacher used these as informal assessments in a lesson about prefixes and suffixes. However, I like the idea (inspired by another Pinner) of students writing their hopes and dreams in balloons and attaching a picture of themselves soaring with them. Another Pinner had the idea to create an "Oh the Places You Go" Bulletin Board with them! Overall a fun, engaging way to get students to really think about their learning goals for the future!

child pick an animal at the top of the food chain and create a food chain inside its belly. In hindsight she probably didn't need to have the tiger represented (since it was already represented by the drawing). This would fall under 5th grade standards here in South Carolina and I am thinking of how it could be modified to represent fossil fuels in our energy unit.
