Before I dive in to that intriguing blog post title, I wanted to say a sincere thank you to everyone who left sweet comments on Monday’s post. This has been the hardest thing I’ve ever faced as a teacher and your encouragement and prayers mean the world to me. What a sweet group of bloggy friends I have!
This is such an awkward transition.
From thank you notes to potty talk….
Do you have a pet peeve?
Mine is :
“Mrs. Spann, can I go to the bathroom?”
“Mrs. Spann! I have to use it!”
“Mrs. Spann, its-a-mergency. Really.”
TMI, tiny humans, T-M-I!
So, this year we have used this magical system (borrowed from a co-worker) and it has been GREAT! I love that my teaching partner and I have the same system in both of our rooms. Things like that make for a seamless day!
|I just realized how dirty they are. Vomit. Oh well, I don’t touch them!|
One boy and one girl can be out at a time. I have two strips of velcro running down the side of a bookcase. Each child has their own velcro-ed Popsicle stick. When they are out, they simply move their name into the girl or boy spot.
I love it because I can see at a glance where everyone is!
In case you want to try something like this, I’m including some printable paper dolls you can use with yours!
I would include mine, but I don’t know where they came from! I don’t want the Copyright Cops coming after me! 🙁
You can copy the images into word and shrink or enlarge them as needed.
Hope everyone is having a happy hump day!
