Fun (and Tricky) April Fool's Day Worksheet

 on February 18, 2014

 April fool's Day may be one of my favorite holidays!

I love all the silly little pranks.  No, not the ones that cause harm, just invoke a laugh or two!

My kids try to be sneaky and try to trick me with something silly.

When I was in 7th grade my history teacher gave us a "pop" quiz. The first direction on the quiz was "Read all the questions before you begin."

Best Bulletin Board Instagram Photo Contest

 on February 16, 2014

I think each of us can think back and remember that special teacher who touched our lives and sparked our interest to learn, and to pursue our dreams.

Some for their humor, some for pushing to us to our potential when it was hard and some for the way they really care for each student.  The list could go on and on!

Thank you teachers for your hard work and dedication to education!

Who doesn't want more clean, less whine?

Whether in your a classroom or at home, I think this is a very wonderful idea to implement excitement with clean up time.

Mrs. Morris, a fourth grade teacher, has a reward system in her class using tickets for good behavior, helpfulness, cleanliness, good grades, assignments, homework, etc. 

Students earn tickets and cash them in to buy something from the reward closet.

If you want to make a cute valentine to hang in your room look no further.

Homework Forts

Getting homework done can be a chore, not just for our children, but for us as well!

Let's face it-- after a long day of school the last thing our kiddos want to do is more work!
