Five for Friday--Teacher Appreciation

Here it comes! Teacher Appreciation WEEK! I'll take the whole week. Not a day. A week. I hope you get lots of appreciation!
I'm not sure how often you hear it, but I appreciate you! I appreciate you for being excited about teaching. I appreciate you because you spend your free-time looking for creative ideas for your classroom. I appreciate you because you work harder than anybody I know.

 I'm a little behind the times, but I let my students write on their desks for the first time this week. It. Was. Awesome! They loved it! I loved it!

Have you heard of The Decoding Solution? I've been using this with my struggling readers and they are truly catching on. The idea is to teach kids to attack the middle of the word rather than the beginning. They are feelings so successful and excited about reading. YAY!

 I posted my second Art in 30 activity. Read about it here.

 Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend and an even better week!

  2. Stacy! I haven't tried letting my students write on their desks yet … but I feel like they would LOVE it! I am going to look into that book for my strugglers … looks like a good summer read! :) Have a good week!


  3. Thanks for sharing all these great ideas. I love the writing on the desks. I've been letting my kids write on the floor, so I'll have to try the desks too. Thanks for the chance to win your Giveaway.
