Another reason I am feeling blessed today is because I received a second blog award. Two people have now rated my blog Top 10. Not only that, but I believe I have figured out how to post the label here. Fingers crossed!
Ta Da! I did it! A special thank you to Lori over at Fun For First for giving me this award! I am going to pass it on, hopefully tomorrow! Tonight, it is my goal to get serious and figure out who I want to pass it on to.
Lastly, I believe it is my third week doing Tippy Tuesday on a day that is not Tuesday. However, I know you all are busy, so it is okay. This weeks awesome tip comes from Erica Bohrer over at Erica Bohrer's First Grade. Earlier this year, she shared a fantastic idea on personalizing the birthday chart. You know, the chart that every primary teacher has hanging in their classroom that has student birthdays on it? In my classroom, it was really more a decoration and nothing else. Not a fan! So I love Erica's idea. She took pictures of each of her students, grouped by birthday month, holding a piece of paper with the actual date of their birthday. Then she labeled each photo with the month and hung them in her classroom.
I love it! And I feel more attention may be paid to the birthday chart (at least by me) if it has student photos on it. So I will be doing this for sure, as soon as I am back in the classroom.
