Pinner said, "Take a picture of each child holding a sight word. Then make a power point presentation with those pictures of each child holding the words, and use it to drill the children on the words.... I did this last week and emailed the powerpoint to the parents so they can use it to practice at home. It was a HIT! :)". What fun!!

BULLYING LESSON: A teacher in NY had children take a piece of paper, crumple it up and stamp on it without ripping it. Then she had them smooth it out and look at how scarred it was. She then told them to tell it they’re sorry. Even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. She explained that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That's what happens when a child bullys another child.

Friday Journals--Kids write a note on Friday to their parents telling what they learned that week. The parents write a short response back to their child, and the child brings the notebook back Monday. Each parent response earns a sticker for the cover. Love it--A great way to practice letter writing, and to get parents involved. Helps the children ingrain what has been taught into their memory too.
