First- I want to start off with this Random Act of Kindess Freebie my friend Susanna from Whimsy Workshop made. I actually GASPED when I saw it posted on her Facebook page! It's a home project to get your students (and families) in the wonderful random acts of kindness mindset. I just love this. Thank you Susanna! She shares some of her other ideas for her Kindness Curriculum here.
A teacher in a town not to far from me created a Facebook page called Mrs. Andrew's 2nd Grade Kindness Project, trying to get a million likes for people doing random acts of kindness.
I love Dan Pearce's blog Single Dad Laughing. He shared this video about "Reverse Pickpocketing." The thing that struck me about it was how happy the people looked after they gave away the envelopes. It was fun to watch.
I found this wonderful poster that I really liked- and the best part is, you can download it FREE at Kind over Matter . Isn't it a fun idea?
My next favorite thing of the week is this Sight Word Zoo Writing Packet!
Susanna's artwork is A-DOR-A-BLE. Look at those faces. But there's more- it's really soooo great for learning sight words and writing- just look at all the activities each book includes!
In her post about this series, she gives a great overview of what each book offers. I can't wait to use these with my new class. Just the characters will make me smile every time we use them, so that is great for me. For some reason, when their little arms hang down at their sides, I just want to scoop them up and hug them. Maybe that is why I am teaching Kindergarten, do ya think? Speaking of that...
I thought I would share with you probably one of the main reasons I became a teacher...
I will leave you with these guys. I found them at the Dollar Store- and their eyes just screamed, "We can help teach your students about looooking at pictures in books!" I love Eagle Eyes- but it's fun to have lots of reminders and different ways to help the children remember to LOOK. There were 6 colors- so... obviously I couldn't leave one behind. I lined them up to take their picture- and look at Mr. Orange rolling his eyes at me! Welllll... that just made me laugh after I took the picture-
Have a wonderful day! Thank you for stopping by!
