I am joining in my first linky! I am not exactly sure what I am doing but I am so excited to figure this all out! Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits is hosting a Hall Pass Linky!
So here I go!
Product: My favorite product that I have made is my Dental Health Unit! I had so much fun teaching this unit! My students loved the Uh-Oh! Cavity game so much, they even asked to play it during recess!
I am also excited about my Sentence Scramble Pack! I made a Sentence Scramble Freebie and it seemed to be doing really well, so I made a whole pack! Check it out!
Area: My favorite area in my classroom is my carpet area! It is the place where my class gathers for calendar time, stories and working on the Promethean board! I also love my rocking chair. Last year my rocking chair was so uncomfy, but this year my mom made me some comfy cushions for it and it is perfect! I wish I had a picture of it, but since I am snowed in on this snow day I will have to post a picture of the rocking chair later! Here is a pic of my carpet...it's the best I have for now!
Signal: The signal I use the most is "Stop, Freeze, Eyes and Ears on me, Please!" My room becomes very quiet when they hear this signal. This way I can let them know of any changes or announcements that I may have. I also use "1,2,3 Eyes on Me". Though these aren't the most original or clever solutions, they work for me!
Sanity: I love the days that I have a few extra minutes to grab a sweet tea on my way to work. Sweet tea gives me the boost of sugar that I need to get my energy going! Also, whenever I am having one of "those" days the easiest way for me to catch a breath is to throw in a book on CD! I have a shelf of them in my room and I can just grab one off and it gives me a couple of minutes to regroup while the kiddos are engaged! Youtube videos of fun songs (Harry's Kindergarten has some of my favorites!) also give me a minute to get that extra breath in!
That completes my Hall Pass!
