We are half way through November at it is officially snowing in New York! (But no snow day yet!)

On a day like today I love to switch up my Google Classroom header to my animated ginger bread man theme. Although the weather outside may be frightful, I’m inside grading papers, dreaming of baking cookies and that makes me so delightful!

Have you switched up your Google Classroom header this week? Tell us what theme you chose!

Thankful For YOU!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and its the perfect time to encourage an attitude of gratitude in the classroom!

The week before Thanksgiving I hand out student superlatives and “kudos” certificates to show each of my students how grateful I am for THEM! I also do a Thanksgiving potluck and ask students to bring in nut-free goodies to celebrate the holiday.

The celebration and festivities are helpful to keep students motivated as we move into the holiday season. Check my kudos certificates out here and brighten your students Thanksgiving weekend!
