Made It Monday
I am easing my way into back to school mode! Here is a little something I made with my new washi tape. I am not really a crafty person and I've never made a truly themed classroom, but I really like the "comic book/superhero" theme and I am going to try and do it a little bit in my room. So here are two of my first little touches.
I LOVE my pencil sharpener and my kids do too. The point it makes on pencils have my kids spoiled so much that when theirs gets the tiniest bit dull they want to resharpen. This year I am going to make sharpening pencils a reward. Each day the can will start off filled with sharp pencils. Whenever a student wants/needs to sharpen, they are going to take a sharp pencil out and put their dull pencil in. At the end of class, I will draw a name of a student who has followed the rules and participated all class to sharpen all of the dulls from that class period. Not sure exactly how I will do the drawing part, maybe give kids tickets when they are caught doing good, or maybe I will make laminated cards with their names on them and if they break a rule or don't do homework or something I take the card away. Actually I'd rather reward good behavior than punish bad behavior so I think I'll go with the ticket idea. Maybe combine the both and if they are caught being good I put their laminated card in the jar! Okay, yeah that works!
