Free Seasonal Book Labels

The teacher in me loves organization.  Everything labeled and in the correct place.  And sometimes that carries over at home and I have to label our seasonal books when I pull them out.  If you could use some season book labels, head to my blog to grab your FREE seasonal books labels.

Spruce Up Your Calendar

My students love changing the date on the calendar.  They always have.  Now, they also love changing out monthly calendar headings too.  Why, because each month a new picture of our class is unveiled.  I am always snapping pictures of my students when we take our field trips, or earn a school incentive.  I used to always wonder what I would do with all of their pictures, so I created these free editable monthly calendar headings.  Each month has a spot for you to add pictures of your class in action.  It's a great way to use all of the pictures you take of your students on field trips, at recess, etc.

The best thing about these is that you simply click on the photo box, then upload the photo you want to display.  Print the calendar headings, laminate, and you're ready to go.  My students LOVE seeing photos of themselves.

It Matters What Children See and Hear

It matters what children see and hear.  They breathe it in like air and will model it before your eyes. Their models are their parents and family members — we know what we know from our families.  We inadvertently do what they do without even knowing it until someone points it out.

 My daughter sent me a video of my 11 month old grandchild.  She was “reading a book.”  She knew just what to do with a book.  You sit with it; you open it, look at the page, than you say words.  When you are done talking, you turn the page from right to left.  When you close the book you pick up another book.  While watching her sister, our 4 year old granddaughter said, “Oh my goodness”, which informed me what she hears Mommy and Daddy say in their home.

 Everything you know you learned in your family.  Your family values, ethics, habits, sense of right and wrong shape your behaviors and influence the decisions you make every day.  I tell my students, in a few years, you will leave your home and go out into the world to make a life for yourself.  Will the rules and expectations you grew up with be the same, or will they change. A Genogram / family tree project is an opportunity to evaluate your family — what do you like, what do you not like, what will you change when you make your own home.  Your home — your rules.
The purpose of the family tree is to answer the questions
1.     Why am I the way I am
2.     Why do I say the things I say
3.     Why do I respond the way I do
4.     Why am I argumentative, or shy, or quiet, or boisterous or angry, or calm — you get the picture
5.     Why do I believe what I believe
