Student Gift Ideas - Preschool: I've always loved Wordle.com but never thought about snipping the wordle, saving it, and printing it as a photo to frame for my students or colleagues. I also liked the idea of having students sit at each computer to write a nice word about each of their classmates. Very unique and personal!
Amazing end of year gift for kids!
Love this idea! Great birthday or EOY gift for students. Especially if other students provide the words.

Pixar Short Film: "For the Birds" - may be my favorite short :)
"One of my favorite Pixar short films is called 'For the Birds.' It's about a group of birds with poor social skills. I use this film to discuss the types of behaviors that students see or engage in at school. The worksheets are a great way for students to express how they would respond to these situations."
