Ponder This: 
The best thing you can do for your kids is to be an interesting adult.

Try This:
Memory Jar- Throughout the year, record special days or funny things that occurred onto slips of paper and store them in a jar. At the end of the year (or whenever you need a pick-me-up), read through them all and enjoy!

Qwips is a new (beta) site for adding a 30 sec voice clip to any number of different online content (photos, video, etc).  This is a very cool site that is easy to use.  A person records their voice and then has the ability tag a photo, add it to an email, tweet, etc.  A feature soon to come is the ability to respond back to a "qwips" w/ a voice recording of your own.

I recommend checking out Qwips by clicking here.

Think of what kids could do with this? 30 second book review, perform their best fluent reading, student reflection, summarization, etc. What are your ideas?

The Push

I love to tell my students that it’s my job to push them. I want them to work hard and not settle for ok. I have so many smart kids in my class who just have a natural gift to do well in school, but I like to push them. The same is true with all my students. Those that struggle, well, it’s also my job to push them to the next level. This past month’s book report assignments have given me yet another way to push my students. I write this post today because The Push has definitely been paying off!

To read the full article click on the title above. 

How do you show to your students that you really care for them?
