#Repost @thebehaviorbunch ・・・ Why do challenging kids thrive off negative attention? 👉🏾 It's predictable 👉🏾 It's easier 👉🏾 It's intense and dramatic 👉🏾 It's obvious 👉🏾 & it verifies a child's poor self image. [The Behavior Code] Being mindful of how we respond to challenging behavior can make a difference in a child's self worth. 💜🍏 #thinkaboutitfirst #iswhatyouareabouttosayhelpful #orhurtful #mindfulteachers
My 3 year old reminds me how to Saturday - cool sunnies and all in with a cupcake.
🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻. ・・・ Anyone facing the dreaded, Oh I hear you have _______ in your class. Good luck with that from colleagues? 🤦🏻♀️ Don't forget your purpose! To teach your current class, and meet them exactly where they're at. Maybe last year's class was a dream, maybe this year's crew will be or won't be. It's all part of the job. Put on your professional pants, close the door on that Negative Nancy, and start prepping for your best year yet. #loveallthekids #nomatterwhat
Finishing up some of the projects on my summer 'to do' list - made new playing pieces for some of my board games to give the kiddos more options and cut down on feuds! Binder Clips + Laminated @educlips Clipart 👍🏻🙌🏻 Shout out to @aperfectblendteaching for this amazing idea.
I updated my Reatorative Practices Choices/Think sheet to also include directions and example pages to put in a folder to help students complete independently, and a PowerPoint for teaching it. ✍🏽🤔More details on my instastories and direct link in bio.
I'm officially one of 'those' people in education that hits up the #targetdollarspot every few days. 🤷🏼♀️💸 I talked about how I plan to use yesterday's finds in my instastories.
