Pencil Grips Are Your Friend

I used to write each child's name on their pencils with a Sharpie. Until I found pencil grips. Although you can't see them, this package has several colors. I gave each student at a table a different color. Not only could they easily discern their own pencil (and avoid a squabble), but -of course- the grips helped them to keep their pencils from sliding between their fingers.

It's the Thought That Counts

Children need to learn proper etiquette, like sending a thank you note for a gift they've received...even if it turns out like this.

Thunder Clouds!

My neighbor teacher had the kids make these adorable rain clouds. One hand holds a  raindrop, the other hand holds a lightning bolt, and the two feet are smaller clouds.

"For Itches Sand"

Teachers and parents, please check and listen to your child say the Pledge of Allegiance, and make sure they are saying it correctly.
