Back 2 School Weekly Linky - Week 1


This week I've linked up with Mrs. D's Corner and Miss V's Busy Bees to blog about Behavior Management. To give you some insight into what works in my classroom.

Let me start off by saying that each and every school year is different for me. Some group of students need more and some need less. Some need tangible, some need praise, some need consequences. On the first day, I of course have a plan in mind. I happily implement it. Give the kids the low down. Make sure they know what happens if they break a rule. 

I have used EVERYTHING out there with the clip system being the most recent. 

But just this past spring, I learned about an UH-MAZ-ING new resource called CLASS DOJO. After spring break, I introduced it to my class to test it out. Give it a go. See if I could keep up with it. See if the students responded to it. And the answer is YES YES YES! And the best part - it is FREE!

Below is a short clip from their site www.classdojo.com. It explains things better than I can! 



So after watching the video, I set up my class in all of 5 minutes. The kiddos were excited over their little avatars! You can't pick who gets what - you get what you get and you don't get upset - yup said it AGAIN!

Check out the low down below!


I will be using Class Dojo in September! I'm excited! Please note that this is a review. I am not affiliated with Class Dojo at all. I was not asked to review their site. With that said, go check it out! Play around. You will be delighted!

Check out the blog schedule from Mrs. D's Corner and Miss V's Busy Bees! Exciting!

Thank you again to Mrs. D and Miss V. for this great link up! Head on back for more great classroom management resources! Click on the link below!

Throwback Thursday with The Teaching Tribune!






I have to let everyone know about my newest indulgence! I splurged on a pair of Tieks! I did! I did! I treated myself to an additional Mother's Day present! I am here to let you know about my amazing purchase!  I have about 6 different pairs of black flats that I have picked up here and there. My latest faves are from Payless so I am not one to spend a significant amount of money on my shoes. 

Let me first start out by saying that before blogging, I had never heard of Tieks. I did not see them on Oprah's favorite things. I have however, read wonderful things about them from teachers across the U.S. who are thanking their Tieks after a long day on their feet. I am so glad that I took the plunge and got myself a pair!


So, first things first. Your Tieks will arrive in BEAUTIFUL box! The great thing about these shoes is that they fold into themselves making it easy to carry them with you or pack them to travel with.


Look how cute the box is with a HAND WRITTEN card! How nice is that?!?! Below is a closeup of how the shoes fold and fit into the box.

I wear a size 10 ever since I gave birth to my beautiful trio! I do not have dainty, tiny feet. In fact, my feet are big and like to be COMFORTABLE! When I took out my shoes, the smell of a rich and creamy leather tickled my nose. It reminded me of that "new car" smell when you are lucky enough to get a new car with leather seats! I LOVE THAT SMELL! I couldn't wait to have my feet encased in that love! I slid my naked foot into my new Tieks and was greeted by a friendly hug. That is what I need to call it. The shoe hugged my foot like an old friend! A caring, loving, friend! I wore them to work today and had not one problem! Not one bandaid in the back on the heal. Not one wish for my little puppies to escape the confines of their fashionable prison - not one! In fact, I couldn't stop looking at them and admiring them! I wish I had gotten one of their AMAZING colors though! I played it safe with black because I know I will wear them the most, but I would love to get a hot color to highlight an all black outfit! I know my students would love that as much as I would!

Here is a pic of my feet in my new Tieks! 

Here is a link to their website so you too can drool over the enticing kaleidoscope of colors offered by Tieks! I hope they fit your feet as well as they do mine :)
