My first Tried It is one I shared early on in my bloggy months, but many of you weren't following me then, so I want to share it again now :)
Yes, this is a SILLY picture, but showing off my princess crown! :) This has become a STAPLE in my classroom this year. I love my 1 on 1 time with students, and it is definitely needed! I know many of you are in the same boat as me and have to keep track of LOTS of data. This data takes time, and needs to be uninterrupted. How do you get 27 9 and 10 year olds to leave you alone for 10 minutes?
The princess crown! From the beginning of the year we established the rules of the princess crown in our classroom. When I am wearing the crown, students are not allowed to interrupt me for any questions. My kiddos joke "unless your bleeding or dying, leave the princess alone!!" During this time if students ask questions, they ask the "VIP" of the day in our classroom. The use their problem solving skills to figure out what they need to!
It's a simple thing, but it works wonders! Thank you Target $1 section :)
My second Tried It is INSTAGRAM!
I am totally loving having a classroom instagram. I've always had a private one, but I love sharing things in this social media for my classroom. I actually let my students follow the classroom one too, so they can see pictures I post of their activities throughout the day! Plus, it's another fun way to interact with you amazing bloggy friends! :)
So follow me-- @wildthingslearn
Off to play some sand volleyball.... have a great night everyone :)
