I read Mrs. Peabody's Apples and then write it on the board and we discuss did the kids think they spoke bad about their teacher.

Before you speak...think classroom wood sign

great for a classroom, playroom, kitchen, bathroom.... I think we could all use this reminder in every room! If you are interested in another color here is your listing: This is a wood sign for your wall. It is about 1/4" thick and 9X14" . It is the same style as the smaller cards, only bigger. I have so many ideas and so little time but I should be listing a few more soon. I would also be happy to use one of my…

Tip for helping kids manage their pencil grip. Have them hold a ball or cotton ball in their ring and pinky fingers. This forces these fingers to stay busy, while the pincer fingers hold the pencil!

Pencil Grip Tip!

If your kindergartners (or pre-schoolers, first graders, children, fill in the blank) are anything like mine, MANY of them are still developing a proper pencil grip. Or actually, they have developed an improper pencil grip, and you are trying to re-train their hands.
