SO good! I heard nothing but great things about them from my co-workers. I used Courtney's recipe from Sweet Tooth Sweet Life.
This wasn't part of my list of things I've learned so at pseudo #1 I'd like to say that volunteers are so necessary and an AMAZING support group in a school. As teachers, we are very lucky to have those who willingly give up their time to come and help out in the classrooms. So, THANK YOU to anyone who volunteers in schools!
Now onto my latest findings...
- Make it sound like what you are giving students is basically better than gold and they'll want just about anything you're offering.
- Don't accidentally put permanent markers in the dry erase marker tub.
- We all know a colorful classroom environment is friendly and inviting, but colored erasers are more of a distraction than they are a useful tool.
- Using a dramatic voice to ask "Who wants to hold The Cat in the Hat while we read?!" works every time.
- Teaching is my passion.
