Pin It Monday...A Day Late :S

Sorry I'm late on my Pin It Monday! I have not been feeling well since Sunday afternoon. Sinuses have been acting up...no fun at all. I actually left work early today because I just did not feel good at all. Head hurt, I was achy all over,dizzy...ya, no fun.

But anyway, look what I found on Pinterest this week! Perfect for those kids who get their B's and D's mixed up! I am so going to try this!

Pin It Monday!

The workshops I went to on Friday went great! Instead of going to the one about How to Manage a Class, I decided to go to one about Getting up and Moving! It was so much fun! We did different activities that get your kids up and moving. Because we all know that kids cannot sit in their seats for long periods of time! Get them up and actively participating in class!

Today is going to be Pin It Monday!
I love Pinterest! And I found this great idea for when I get my own regular ed. classroom!

This idea came from the blog Seriously Primary, check it out!

Cute idea for keeping track of class compliments. Each time the class is complimented (in the hall, at specials, etc.), they receive a "brownie." Once the brownie pan is filled, the class gets a reward.
{so doing this whenever I get my own classroom!!}

If I ever get the lower grades, this will work so good! Kids always want to hear that they are doing good. And if they get rewarded for getting compliments that's even better!

Teacher Conferences...Teachers Rock!

So tomorrow I have asked if I can go with the teachers to the Tri-County conference. (I am an aide who is just waiting for that open job to come along!). I will get to go to 3 different workshops that I am very excited for. I know there are some teachers out there that dread workshops. But being a recent graduate (2010) I am still very excited about them! I feel like I learn a lot! I am going to one about Reading Comprehension, Ipads, and How to manage your class by promoting positive behavior (most excited about this one!)

What are some workshops that you have really enjoyed? Please Share!
