Mindfulness Corner




I've posted a new Donor's Choose Project recently for a Mindfulness Corner.  Sonic has so generously donated $200 to this project, but we have a ways to go. I'd really appreciate your taking the time to read more about it, share with friends and family, and perhaps donating.  Every dollar counts!  This would bring a space into our classroom that would allow kiddos to self regulate.  Sometimes we just need to take a  break in order to keep going.  This space would give students a place to read quietly, draw pictures, color mandalas, play with some fidgets, or just take a breath.  I don't want this to be a punitive space.  I want for students to ask to go to the corner when they feel like they need a break. I'm actually going to be working on a Google Doc QR code request sheet that they would need to fill out prior to using this space just to give me some more information on why he/she feels they need to use this space. I'll share that as a freebie once completed.  What do you do to help your kiddos self regulate?  I'd love to hear and see your ideas.  Please comment below or use hashtag #mindfulnessclassroomcorner!

Donors Choose Project and New TpT New Product

 I've been MIA for over a year and I've missed everyone dearly.  I've been taking Grad school classes and have decided that I need to keep blogging in my life.  So I'll update you on a few things I've been working on this week...

First, I have a new Donor's Choose project posted that's currently being matched by the Overdeck Family Foundation and it only needs $70 more dollars for completion. With that being said, I've created two new TpT products in the past week that I'm more than happy to give to anyone who donates to my DC project.  If you donate to my project, please leave a comment with your email and let me know which product you'd like.  And as always, shares are greatly appreciated.  Thanks so much for your continued support. I'm so excited to be blogging again and hope that I can continue through the remainder of the few classes I have left.

I was inspired by Denise Hill's Black History Month Trivia, so I created one for President's Day for my class.  I know this has already passed, but I'm always trying to think/plan ahead.

Testing is coming up next week for us and I wanted to post it some test tips and inspirational quotes around the school.  I created this product with that it mind. It says, "Donut stress, take your time and do your best." I was inspired by this post from The Carly and Adam Blog.  I tried to take a picture of it, but I hung it on the library window facing the playground and the reflection was terrible.  Guess I should have thought about that before hanging it!
